    $150 seems wayyyy too cheap for what you are getting.

    Yeah, I miss that too.

    I like how in the Volt your heated steering wheel and seats immediately turn on by itself when it's below certain temperature outside.

    The $150 was U.S. so no issue with paying double in Canada.

    I had a heated wheel on my 1998 528, it was great.

    My 2012 Leaf had it but it was terrible.

    You turned it on, got super hot then turned off and got cold, with switch on.

    Then you would wait and wait, it would come back on for a bit, get too hot then go off lol.

    My 08 328x drive wagon does not have it, 09 up does

    Considered retrofitting but it is a fairly big job, wiring, changing clockspring...

    I'd buy a Model 3 and pay the retrofit cost at $150.

    It's literately one of the few things that held me back from getting one already.

    I think it will eventually come as an option on the 3, just not sure it will ever be an available retrofit option.

    No reason why not. It's a retrofit on the S and X. Just requires a steering wheel change.

    Depends if the 3 was made with the wire harness, control circuits, and potentially clock spring connections to support a heated wheel.

    Yes but the S and X were always available with heated wheel as an option.

    3 has never had it as an option

    Definitely, but not as an easy retrofit

    ;)
    I wish I could easily send you mine. I never, ever use it.

    I guess I’m weird, I never use the heated seat either. I won’t send you that though, the wife would kill me ;)
