    I have a 2013 car that I love dearly but one thing that's always been a little disappointing is that the key fobs are not recognized to set the user settings (e.g. seat position). I'm pretty sure this was originally listed as a feature for the car but then removed at some point (wasn't it?) I had held out hope for a while that this was coming in a software update but, I guess it's a hardware limitation.

    Anyway - I was wondering if any of the newest cars have this?

    Nope. That feature was memory-holed with a few others.

    Was that a feature advertised/discussed by Tesla at one time? I remember forum members saying it would be nice to have but not Tesla indicating it would be included.

    I was reminded of it because the Model X has that sophisticated fob that "triangulates your position" for the valet door opener thing... I figure if it can do that it must be able to tell the difference between the fobs :)

    When I got my car end of 2013 the sales person at the retail center said it was "coming" via software update in the future. Which in tesla time means on a future car.
