Fwiw my sig has the rubbed cone, not the smooth one
FYI I asked about the nose cone change at the factory and was told it is for aesthetic reasons and they were surprised when it changed after sigs already shipped.

I think they did it for simplicity and cost (duh). I would think the whole nose would snap out and off easily. It gives access to things like frunk latch, wiring, etc. One piece is a lot cheaper than 3-5 pieces.
hey, little thought for threads like this: i find it incredibly helpful to know the prod seq # and vin (if avail) when discussing differing aspects of delivered models, for tracking production changes.. would be great if those of you who don't have your prod # and vin in your signature or member dets (on the left with avatar) could include such in your posts.. esp those with pics.
Well, we compared mine with another local model S that had been delivered about 2 weeks earlier, and the nose cone is the same. So it appears the dividing line might be production vs. sig.
Here is a comparison between the "old" nose, from one of Tesla's studio shots,
and the "new" nose on my (as yet undelivered) Canadian Signature (VIN S02001):
In addition to being aesthetically cleaner, the new nose should be aerodynamically cleaner, in a crucial spot-- the first part of the car to touch the wind.
