    I was at a Tesla Service Center the other day and was looking in the windows of a new Model S 70D that just arrived. The front driver's Next Gen seat had a plastic cover over it with a sticker that said something like "for vehicle without second row heated seats". This to me implies that there is a different between a front heated seat in a vehicle with and without rear heated seats.

    Anyone want to speculate as to what the different might be between the two seats?

    My guess would be it's a different wiring harness.

    Same thing I was thinking. The front seat may have a passthrough for the rear seat heaters as well.
