I do wish people would be a little clearer with these answers.

No, Tesla does not offer this at all. That should be made clearer to people asking this question. It is only off-book 3rd parties that will do this type of thing.

I got a quote from Tesla too. That was about 6 months or so back. Cost is fairly high, they even said they could do a 90kwh upgrade for my 2013 60 kWh. But no 100 kWh upgrade is possible, they said.
