Probably not knowing tesla However in the past they have done retrofit for PWS when wire was there and not the PWSpeaker.I don’t think they could care any less about feedback.
It probably isn’t better. Wiring is likely different, plus having to mess with software side. It’s unlikely to be that simple, plus the new lights are likely much more expensive with the Samsung chips in them.Probably not knowing tesla However in the past they have done retrofit for PWS when wire was there and not the PWSpeaker.
Also It will be better for Tesla say to have one global part number for Headlights vs Holding multiple part numbers across board as even holding a part number cost money...
This way they can have one part and not only that they can make money by offering these retrofits..
If you only drive solo, it'd be unlikely to ever change. But if you take a passenger in the front seat, they may want the screen pointing straight back, especially if you're playing a game, watching a show, operating navigation, etc.
There was a thread where someone was playing with a configuration that would allow manual movement. If you remove the worm drive and used some bushings that were tightened just enough to allow movement under some push-pull force. I think totally doable as the monitor mount slides in/out in a slot on the left and right side. The mount is a magnificent example of over engineering and graceful complexity and is super robust.I’ve had mine manually tilted in my Model S Plaid for a few months now. Honestly thinking of putting it back in the stock position. It looks cool, but Most of my controls are on the left anyway. I sat in the passenger seat the other day while my wife was driving and it just looked “weird”. At some point I hope I can figure out how to manually adjust it without having to take the screen down each time.
I drive solo and with passengers. In the last 48k miles. I have not once wished I could have titled the screen.
Great to have if there, but not a big deal to me. I would retrofit to play with though if available
Any updates on a factory retrofit?
I had one SM ask for my purchase agreement showing the tilt screen option. I sent them a screen shot from the original Tesla order pages showing the tilt screen feature as an included benefit. These web pages are available through the wayback machine website. (Internet Archive: Wayback Machine)Which is annoying, because it was an advertised feature at launch when I put down my deposit.
Could you provide a link or screenshot to the page you're talking about? I can't seem to find a description of the tilt screen from the June 2021 order page.I had one SM ask for my purchase agreement showing the tilt screen option.

I recommend that anyone wanting their tilt screen capability retrofitted, contact Tesla support through the Tesla app and demand this capability be added to their refreshed Model S or X. Send them a screen shot from Internet Archive: Wayback Machine showing this feature at the time of their order.
Let's get Tesla to do the right thing.
