    I have read that to enable the auto-tilt reverse mirror you put the car into reverse and set the mirrors tilted down then "save" your profile.
    But the textile interior doesn't come with seat memory, so does that mean that auto-tilt isn't available either?

    No. I expect "seat memory" to be an optional part of "user profile", not the other way round. Consider that "user profile" includes settings for steering column, regen, power steering, walk-away auto-lock, and door handle behavior. I would be bewildered if that functionality is discarded when going from leather to textile seats.

    I have the auto-tilt rear view mirrors. Don't know whether the fact that I have the Tech Package makes the difference or not. I have the textile interior and am very happy with it. There is no user profile memory--That goes with leather.

    I have textile interior (and the Tech package) but the car remembers your reverse mirror settings. So yes they still 'auto-tilt'. But in reality it is a reverse mirror setting.

    I was under this impression also. I thought the cloth seats didn't come with encoders to the car wouldn't know the seat position and so it couldn't be offered. But I fully expected driver profiles. But I did not get them. I am a bit miffed by the lack of driver profiles (mostly so I can put my name up on the top bar). But honestly I am going to be the only one driving the car.

    I am bewildered why they don't have this with cloth seats.

    Resurrecting a really old thread!

    I now have driver's profiles! I also have auto tilting mirrors again (they were taken away with the software upgrade to 4.X).

    Tesla Service is so wonderful!

    Great! Seems silly to deny it to people who ordered early when us later buyers got it included with ours.
