Fyi, this morning I noticed under my climate controls that heated steering wheel appeared and it works great.
Out of curiosity what software version do you have? 2020.39.100 looks to support heated steering wheels, but 2020.48.35 came out today and someone on Twitter looked at the code and found the heated steering wheel support as well.

Put my order in last Saturday and they want to schedule my factory delivery on 1/22. Unfortunately, there's a software issue with the Model S I'm selling via Carvana that this will replace, so I'm probably going to have to push out delivery unless service figures out how to solve this.

So, are the cars that are being delivered so quickly coming with the heated steering wheel and auto dimming mirrors? Being in ca I don’t care about the steering wheel, but the mirrors are relevant. Is the console updated or still the old one? I’ve asked the delivery people, but I’m not getting those answers.

Mine has all the new stuff except the console (Mirrors, Wheel, Double pane windows). The center console update was in China and don't think they have brought it over yet. I have a 107xxx VIN. I think mine was an order that someone else placed but didn't have their financing done in time so they switched it to me.

Thanks for clearing that up, Troy.

The a/d mirrors have been out for a while now. Glad to see the heated wheel trickling out. I'd like the new console. Planning on ordering in late Jan.

Delivery is fast.....I ordered my MY on 1/9, had VIN on 1/10, and took delivery 1/16
I actually had to postpone my delivery because it was so fast. Although it was a different part of Tesla that caused that (service issue created by the latest software download that they can't figure out; hence I can't sell my current S while the error condition exists).

Curious how you were able to confirm the heated steering wheel prior to delivery? I ask because I have my order in but haven't submitted all required information to get assigned a VIN. I'm hearing most Tesla SAs aren't even aware of the heated steering wheel, or simply playing ignorant to the fact it exists. It's a must for me to have (promised wife it existed), so I'm wondering if I should wait until Tesla actually announces its existence (could be a while) or chance it that I get assigned to a new build that has it. Seems it's existence has been widely sporatic and not following VIN #'s. Thanks in advance!

Until you sit in the car and check to see if it has a heated wheel, no one can really be completely for sure.

However, I've seen heated wheels as low as 103k, so if your VIN is 120k, for example, its highly likely you will have the heated wheel. If the car comes in and doesn't have a heated wheel, reject delivery and tell them to build you another one.

The cars with heated wheels are running a different software version so there is still some hope that all car with metal scroll wheels will have heated wheels. Regardless, if the car doesn't have the equipment you want at the time of pickup, reject it.

As soon as the heated wheel becomes ubiquitous we can start clamoring over the new headlights.

Wait... I'm not done clamoring over the new center console! Thanks - that was my assumption as well but sounded like from @trkmy post, they were able to get confirmation before delivery day. Was just wondering if it was the SA who provided that info or whether they were just assuming based on VIN #.
