Parking sensors now available....cost to retrofit. Question on Foglights

I am getting my car on Saturday...can't wait. Does anybody know how much extra it will now cost to have these parking sensors placed on the car. Also, thought that foglights were originally included in earlier versions on an option. Do others owners that recently got their cars have foglights?

Foglights were removed a month or two ago. No recent deliveries have had foglights. The new foglights are supposed to be redesigned to make them safer in actual fog situations (obviously this has yet to be confirmed).

Tesla reps have confirmed that parking sensors will be retrofitable, but no price has been released.

I have the prior tech package foglights. They dont do much. I wouldnt bother with them.

my specialist told me my car does have foglights. Do you think they are the new foglights or the original designs. Getting my car Saturday

@ jkitain, check your order documents and MVPA - does it say fog lights?

My car was delivered 5 days ago. No fog lights with tech pkg.

All luxury cars should come with fog lights especially with the tech package I ordered since we pay extra for that. I see some nice ones on Mercedes and Audi's so as long as they match the headlights I would be satisfied' don't get my car till 8-20 I was told they came with fog lights so not sure after hearing some comments.

I have the original tech package fog lights and recently rediscovered them after driving at night and noticed they really light up the road on a clear night better than without.

I also have the original fog lights with original tech package and I don't think they do anything. Not worth the money, in my opinion.

Im more interested in adding the parking sensors.

Same as Jchangryy, I am interested in adding the parking sensors as well.

Get ready to write the big check. It doesn't look like the 2012 had any wiring harnesses included.

Bummer - parking sensors is the killer missing feature. :(

I am very used to parking front and rear now at this point, I need sensor's for parallel parking the car from the curb, it's getting expensive to fix the dark rims every for month's at $250 for the two.

@ BYT - how do parking sensors help you avoid a curb?

Also, the mirrors tilt down when you are in reverse - that should give you a better indicator of your distance from the curb than parking sensors which only tell you how far your bumper is from an object.

The fog light thread,

@jkitain, you will have the new design now in production
