    Interesting new options on Tesla dashboard: Parking Sensors and Lighting Package

    Not sure if I should get my hopes up, but I just checked my design on the dashboard and noticed that my price had gone up from $102,520 to $103,420. The difference is two new options listed, "Parking Sensors" and "Lighting Package". I confirmed on 7/11 and just got my vin (#18030) yesterday. I haven't yet heard from a delivery specialist, so I don't have anybody to definitively say whether these are legit or a bug, as I know the Euros have the parking sensors. The view my design button has also disappeared from the dashboard in the interval. I sure would take the parking sensors for $500 if that's in the cards, not sure what the lighting package is. Any thoughts?

    Maybe that's the rear fogs? Only thing I can think of (and not needed in NA spec)

    Elon told me fog lights would be returning after a redesign as a separate option...

    Lighting Package in Europe is only interior lights:

    Für mehr Ambiente in Ihrem Model S wurden einige LEDs so platziert, dass das Licht nicht störend von der Winschutzscheibe reflektiert wird:
    Beleuchtung des Kofferraumes
    Beleuchtung der Türen
    Fußraum-Beleuchtung der Rückbank
    Türrahmen-Beleuchtung der hinteren Türen

    Translation:

    For more atmosphere in your Model S some LEDs have been placed so that the light is not reflected disturbingly by the windscreen.

    Lighted Trunk
    Lighted doors
    Lighted foot area rear seats
    Lighted rear door frames

    Yeah, I'm not a professional translator... Hope this helps anyway.

    I already have all of that in my car (unless "door frames" means something other than the red warning lights in the door jams) . I was curious why only the rear footwells are illuminated and not the front...

    I think we'll see this, the other European options and couple of other options come up at the Q2 conference call, or in a separate announcement 1-2 weeks later -- announced as either Model S 1.1, or Model S MY 2014.

    Parking sensors are available for Europe. But when will power folding mirrors be available?
