    Yes exactly why I bought the SR vs SR+ arbitrage opportunity early 2020 ( and I can charge the upgrade on my card for points which they wouldn't allow for base price :( )

    Glad someone has finally confirmed the obvious.

    So my sister just bought a SR model 3 and has about 600 miles on the car. But her max mileage fully charged is down to 213 miles already? Is this normal as I have a 2018 m3p+ and have only lost 6 miles of range and I have 22,000 miles on mine.

    It's been reported that there is a software bug in the range reading. I wouldn't read much into it. Remember that the SR has that smaller software locked battery. Degradation should be far less noticable on an SR vs an SR+. I can charge mine up to 100% and get anywhere from 215-220 range reported.

    I think there’s something going on with the software, because when I had an SR+, I was getting 238 miles at 100% as recently as a few weeks ago (with 5 months and 15k miles on the car). The day after the SR downgrade, I was only getting 209 at 100%

    Yes I'm getting only 200 w/ SR too. Not too worried and I hope V10 takes care of it

    yes I would hope the locked part would share/protect degradation

    Honestly that's what I figured in terms of degregation being inapplicable to the sr but she seems really bothered by it so I figured I'd get a second opinion about it all. Thanks guys

    Dumb question, but I recently sat in a new Model 3 SR+ in the Southlake gallery and was surprised to see heated rear seats.

    Yes, I double checked and it was an SR+, and yes, the rear seats actually got hot too.

    Thus, I believe the hardware IS there on nearly all SR+'s, and that it's just a software lock out.

    Has anyone been able to unlock those heated rear seats on other Model 3's? It seem like it would be a VERY high margin move for Tesla to establish a way to "enable" some specific after-the-fact upgrades for SR and SR+ buyers, no? I'd guess it might even be done with OTA signal, via the owner's web portal after payment of $XXX dollars, so the profit margin would then be as close to 100% as one can get.

    Elon: what am I missing here?

    Curious to know what your Rated Range is at 100%.

    i havent been able to unlock my rear seat heaters but i had them until the last update. I got my car in june and had the rear heated seats on, and they became warm, until the first week of September.

    Having a top locked battery is amazing! Just supercharged my SR from 29-100% in under 35mins

    My SR battery used to charge to 220. They replaced the original battery at 1K miles due to jack point damage that occured before delivery and now the replacement charges to ~211. I asked to see the battery health report they can generate but they told me to piss off, essentially. It would be great if this was a software bug but they said nothing about that being a possibility. Would love for that to be the case and see 220 at full charge again, at least in the beginning of the life of the new battery and then see degradation further down the road than immediately.

    Anyone seen a drop in estimated range after V10 on the SR?
    Mine had stabilized at 212-ish but have a sudden drop of 6 more miles after V10.

    Same here at 3.5K miles. But I like the ability to go full 100% w/o worrying about degradation.

    211-214 with zero miles on the newly swapped battery and 1000 miles on the car.

    Wouldn't it make sense for Tesla to not use the ENTIRELY top lock approach? I would think keeping 10% to 25% of the locked capacity at the bottom to help avoid issues when the battery is damaged by draining too low would be the smart thing to do from the manufacture who is offering the warranty perspective (IMO)

    They already do keep a portion of the capacity reserved at the bottom for ALL batteries for that reason. I wouldn't think they would want to have to change that part of their code based on whether it's a "locked" version of a battery or not.

    The point is they have some buffer at the bottom already. This just validates the importance. Now with a battery with locked capacity, why not put SOME of it at the bottom simply to increase that margin? Again, not a big deal, but I would put 90% at top and 10% at the bottom to increase that margin a bit more....
