I want people to say _what they want_ and that includes design. I get fed up of the vagueness of the request.
People don't ask for a battery refresh, they ask for faster charging and more capacity.
If somebody doesn't just want change for change's sake, then they can point to design features of other vehicles or things they like, or features of the current vehicle design they don't like.
fashion is probably the worst offender, because of how easy it is to change your style, trends like to cycle extremely fast. whats in today will be out next month but in again next year
i can keep going but i think you probably get the idea, people want change for change sake, so its not out of the blue to just ask for a redesign for redesign sake.
I want a change to the nose of the car. Something derived from the new roadster would be nice.So many people always seem to want a "design refresh", without actually asking for anything.
What do you actually want from the design refresh?

I have a 5 year old P85D with the original Model S nose, which I love. I've never liked the current nose (even though I do like the Model 3's) specifically because I do not like the dark slot with the kind of bird's beak detail in the middle, common to both the S and X. If they introduce a restyle without that detail I would very likely place an order.
If yours is the black car in your profile picture then I agree -- I think black makes the current S look quite good exactly because it hides the slot/bird's beak detail that I dislike.Design is such a funny thing. I have grown to like / accept both S nose designs. I never really liked the original because it seemed a bit bulbous to me. Neither did I like the facelift because it looked like a snowplow / plough. The M3 looked hood looks too short and the MX / MY too bulky. But of course they are all part of a design process and in the right color and from the right angle, I really have grown to like the MS facelift.
It is what it is. Simple, elegant, distinctive, 'squat' / low. I understand if EM wants to keep pretty close to the original design which is so much 'Tesla'. I guess CT could change all that.
How about having a sunroof again?
The new "sealed" nose design seen on the Roadster / Model S / Model Y is useless for a performance vehicle if you plan to install radar and laser detectors.
