    I think that's a great price, personally. But I expect we'll see an outpouring of angst and frustration in 3...2...

    I will say, in typical Tesla fashion, that image is quite misleading. The rear middle seat does not have a heated seat back. Just the part your rump is on is heated. The two seats flanking the middle are heated in both sit-upon and back locations.

    Just saw it, I think it's an extremely reasonable price, not sure I'd do it though as I rarely have passengers in the back.

    On those rare occasions those rear passengers are so damn happy with the heated seats that it's worth it for those occasions, in my opinion!

    Can I sell mine back for $300? :p

    Well played though. Wonder if it’s an option on base SR as well.

    Fog lights are arguably more important than heated rear seats. Can we confirm they’re even installed in SR/+ anymore?

    Yeah I have my fogs on all the time at night. Helps me see the potholes a little more easily, that's for sure.

    They’re not on my SO’s RHD September 2019 delivered SR+. That has plastic blanking plates where the fog lights would be.

    Fog lights got taken off partial premium somewhere around the 2nd week of July from past research if I recall. My SR+ was built and delivered the 2nd week of August. I have the lights physically installed (no black plates) but no way to turn them on.

    So I'd say maybe 1.5-2 months worth of cars that got built (July 15th-Sept 1st) have fog lights but can't use.

    That's also not taken in account those who had fog lights before the date and updates have taken them away (I've read about a few instances).



    The question is, if Tesla were to offer this, would it be more or less then heated rear seats?

    I could see it (fog lights) being a $500 upgrade requiring a ranger visit. (Not saying I agree with that price but Tesla gonna Tesla)

    I don't see fog lights being added. I think it would annoy too many people who don't have the necessary hardware. At this stage, I don't think Tesla is going to intentionally piss a LOT of Model 3 owners off.

    They didn’t seem to have a problem intentionally pissing off a LOT of Model S owners with charge/batterygate.

    I'm well aware of this, which is why I said "at this stage." The Model 3 is to Tesla what the Corolla is to Toyota, the Civic to Honda, the 3-Series to BMW etc. It's the most important car they current sell. I really, really don't think they're going to risk any mishaps with it.

    Yes I can confirm that it's an option on the base SR. I'll pass also.

    Pass. My rear seats only collect dust


    I got my 5/19 SR+ build in September with fogs


    All I want is the 2 speakers on the A pillars and the 2 speakers on the doors to function


    I can hear the absence of sound in those areas and that's all my car needs.


    Probably would pay up to $400 for it

    It makes you wonder though: how much is Tesla really saving with decontenting lower spec cars (SR/+)

    With more software unlock-able options for the SR+, what else can be possibly activated through software besides this and FSD???
