    Pic 3 P85D lights.jpeg I am getting conflicting results when searching and reading forum about following.
    I am evaluating a Jan 2015 P85D, have not seen in person yet. On Tesla build sheet does not have Premium Interior and Lighting selected.
    Does have Tech Package with AutoPilot and FOG LAMPS.

    1. How do I know if it has Cornering lights?
    I have attached three pictures here. The first two were from my 2013 Tesla with Tech Package and has cornering lights.
    Pic 1 is with lights on. Pic 2 is with my finger pointing to 2 lights that are off.
    2. What is the light DIRECTLY BELOW the amber parking light?
    3. What is the small rectangular light at the bottom?

    The SECOND picture is of the P85D... I do not see a difference...
    4. could this P85D have cornering lights?

    It seems some P85D with Tech Package have cornering lights but others were upgraded with Premium Interior Lighting package.
    Thank you.

    PICTURES ARE posting in WRONG ORDER. THE REALLY GRAINY, with NO LIGHTS on is from the P85D and the other 2 pictures WITH LIGHTS on are from 2013 Tesla WITH CORNERING LIGHTS

    - - - Updated - - -

    Guess a question could be IF has FOG lights installed via Tesla build sheet, WOULD CORNERING lights also be installed?
    The HANDLES do light up when presented and this was supposed to be part of the Premium Interior and Lighting package.

    From what I know fog and cornering go together. Premium lighting package is easiest to tell from the chrome on front instead of black as well.

    They changed the way things were bundled in March 2015. Cornering lights and fog lights were part of the tech package before March. After that, I'm not sure.

    The chromed light in the middle directly below the amber marker light is the cornering light.
    The rectangular light at the bottom (with the projector lens) is the fog light.

    Incidentally, the fog light's aim can be adjusted up and down. There is a small hole in the valance under the light (under the car) for a nut driver. Turn this to adjust the aim.

    Good info. This P85D definitely has fog and cornering lights. If I purchase, will check out the aim of fog lights. Thanks
