    I'm in awe. They did it again. The cold weather pack seems golden. Same with park assist which I assume is integrated with the 17" display.

    I hope they can retrofit some of that stuff into North American cars. Believe it or not, it gets cold in Canada too!

    No pricing yet.

    The lighting option (imho the least attractive/necessary addition) is standard for Signatures. Would be nice if park assist would be become standard for Signatures, now that it looks a Signature does not even guarantee delivery before (Norwegian) P's. The extra value of a Signature is meager (if you know it costs a few thousand euros more and required a 7 times higher deposit).

    EDIT:

    Don't want to sound too much like a whiner: it's really great that Tesla has listened to customers' requests. These package will certainly broaden the customer base. The lack of parking sensors was a big obstacle for many people.

    No heated steering wheel in the cold weather package? That is pretty useless.

    All of it is a buy then for me except PPP, unledd they offer it at 10-15k NOK with the regular 19" wheels. The security pack seems a little useless though.

    Sweet. Oh well, just added three new options to my growing list. I will really want the cold weather package, parking assist and lighting.

    If I could get my US order upgraded with the Parking Sensors for $500 (which seems to be the USD equivalent), I'd jump on that in a heartbeat.... even if it put me to the back of the line for my multi-coat red again. ;-)

    That sound reasonable. The parking sensors would be something like € 500 if I calculate right. We knew the performance package is expensive.

    EDIT: 0.175 is the dollar rate. The euro rate is 0.135, which would mean a price of about € 400 for the parking sensors.

    I think heated steering wheel is overrated. The missing thing with these new options is power folding mirrors.

    I agree. Due to the preheat option the cabin will always be warm before I get in, so no need for steeringwheel heater.

    These options increased the price of my car with about 2 grand, and still I`m happy :)

    Damnit Tesla.... Now I want Performance Plus, Rear seat heating and Parking sensors. I hope they are all retrofittable. If not, might be time to start considering flipping this car and ordering another.

    Amazing news! Been praying for some more options! Especially winter options. Yes power folding mirrors are one thing from the wish list that didnt pop, but heated front window would be the only thing really lacking to make it perfect now! This will sell even more cars! Yes Many exclamation points, but so damn happy!

    Don't be mad at Tesla, I would be happy if I would have had the car for some time now, but still unable to get it any time soon. Even without the cool stuff now get's available I would like the car very much.

    And yes I'm also happy to get the possible options, but wouldn't even think about it if they where not available at all
