Model 3 trims - true comparison

Hi folks

I just joined and I am on the verge of ordering a model 3 standard version. I am trying to get as much details as I possibly can for our UK Tesla offerings. There is just too much information out there and I am finding it very hard to pin down the true differences between the 3 trims that are offered.

Does anyone have any first hand experience and a full list of features that are included in all trims?

E.g. I just learned today from a youtube video that the standard version will not have live google traffic updates after a year and it would then become a subscription. Is this true? Its a total bummer if true.

These are the types of hidden features / restrictions that I am trying to get a hold of.

Could anyone please shed some light on this for me?

Thanks guys.
 
Basically, Partial Premium (SR+) and Premium (AWD and Performance) differences are:

Premium adds:
Fog lamps
Heated rear seats
Premium connectivity (free for a year) - see below
Fabric floor mats
Better audio - subwoofer etc.


Premium connectivity adds:
Satellite maps
Internet - includes browser and spotify
In view traffic - traffic routing uses traffic data in the background on partial premium
Software updates without having to connect to wifi

Premium connectivity is meant to be free for 1 year, then $100/year thereafter. No evidence so far that subscription model has been started, so currently, premium connectivity is free even after 12 months. Not known if premium connectivity will ever be offered to Partial Premium cars but no technical reason why not.

Specs can change without notice, so make sure that you screenshot your spec on ordering.

I've unashamedly sent you a referral code link if you do not already have one.

Premium also includes an upgraded sound system, more speakers, sub, amp.

At present it isn’t possible to add premium connectivity to an SR+ although it is expected in the future, most likely at the same time they start charging those that have had it longer than a year now (which was suppose to be earlier this year but hasn’t happened, rumour has it that will happen in v10 due soon)
