    I received this e-mail update through some back channels. It is from a Tesla high level employee in Ownership Experience dated 11/20/12:
    "George asked me to reach out on his behalf to provide further information about the rear facing seats.
    Rear facing seats will become available in early January.
    Taking into account the backlog, I would estimate delivery for customers will take place in late January early February."


    It does not address who will get them 1st, new owners or 'due bill' owners.
    Of those 'due bill' owners it does not address what the priority for installation nor the process for the installation (time with the car, etc.) will be.
    I choose not to speculate here on that.

    My son bugs me everyday now about the jump seats. "When will they come daddy, when, WHEN?" I am tempted to say, here is the e-mail kid, ask them yourself.

    Hope your source has correct info on the "Jan/Feb" date. My 4-yo twins won't stop bugging me until they get to ride back there
    Expecting delivery in the next few days, hopefully they will retrofit us Sigs with the rear seats on due bill as soon as they become available.

    DS told me Saturday when delivering the car that "early February" was the current date they were giving out for install.

    found a good temporary solution. It is rather cheap, and they seem to fit the bill quite well. You (and your spouse) must be comfortable with the weight limitations and your child's comfort, but they fit well in the bucket seats in the back, are made for narrow three-abreast-backseats, and have a bottom specifically made not to mar the material.

    They got a bad review, but I am sure they would if you tried to put it in a mini van or a normal SUV. Not made for that. I like them. And in February, they go to donation.

    Here's another temporary solution while our jump seats arrive.
    I found these at Target, Cosco No Back Booster for $12.99
    Here it is pictured next to the Harmony Cruz sublimaze1 suggests above:

    And here is a pic of 3 of them in the car (they fit nicely):

    I'll keep all 3 in the car (3 boys ages 6, 4 and 4), and whenever space is needed for adults in the back row I'll store them in the frunk.

    Have you tried to close the seat belts with all three of the seats in the back like that? It's still not easy for me to get the seat belt inserted, and I only have one booster that I think it skinnier than either of these. The one that I had that looks like these (maybe an earlier version of the Cosco) completely covered the seat belt insert such that I couldn't use it because I couldn't shut the seat belt. I posted photos in the Owners Experience sticky thread.

    Maybe in subsequent models they made it thinner so that it was easier to access the seat belts, but you may want to double-check.

    That gave me my day's laugh. Thank you, byt.

    I did seat my 3 kids last night and buckled them in, no problem. These Cosco boosters are pretty skinny (sorry, didn't take width measurements).
    I do plan to add car seat covers for each booster (the bottom is smooth plastic but don't want to take any chances and mess up the leather seats). Hopefully these won't pose an obstacle when trying to reach the belt insert. If they do, I'll update this thread.

    The harmony cruz are even skinnier, and (if you did not have bucket seats) they would be pre-disposed to tipping. Diana says they are just fine with a 39 and a 45 lb kid. As for the bottom, I agree that you would need to take some care with seat covers or with a towel ... but the Cruz has a fabric on the bottom to help with that.
