Picked up my M3 today. Rang to confirm it would have heated wheel before purchase. It’s a MIC M3. from Vin and RN I was told that DID have heated wheel

Today at collection:
has external stitching 😞
No setting to toggle on

rang Tesla. They advised it is a firmware issue, and will be sorted in April. Make of that what you will.

Note the "new" wheel design has stitching on it also. I was confused by this also. The difference actually is it's continuous all the way. The "old" design had seams in the 2 and 10 o clock positions, while new does not.

Picked up my M3SR+ three weeks ago. From what I can tell I have the new lights, new wheel, heat pump, but no option for heated wheel...

I only have front heated seats so I don't have the "screen" that I've seen to turn on the wheel... My 2 heated seats settings are along the bottom.

My rep hinted that I should have the heated wheel, but was just a guess.

Can't figure out if you're being sarcastic or not.. but "turn on wheel heat" works just fine.
So... where's the screen for all these options? I can't seem to find it
Thanks, the screen I've seen is where you turn on your heated seats, there's a little heated wheel icon on the left, if I remember correctly.

No sarcasm, just a bad Alexa joke

I was under the impression that the SR+ doesn't have a heated wheel. You probably have the hardware, but not the ability to turn it on. It'll likely be available as an added purchase sometime in the future.
