    I'd need the English/Japanese version to direct the warm air to my wife as passenger.

    Then just leave it alone. It already directs most of the heat to the person sitting in the "right" seat. Tesla's "fix" simply ducts more of the heat from "right" to "left". It doesn't add any more heat.

    Thanks Augkuo, Looks like a fitted version of mine.

    One difference is the back of the door. Tesla has a shrot perpendicular piece where mine continues from the bottom and goes all the way up to the top of the back edge of the door (by the door switch)

    Since mine has not done as well as I would like, this may be the better option. When you post a successful rain/gravel test I will ask my Service center pretty please to just get it alone.

    I've already asked and the answer was "no". Which I interpret to mean that they want to charge $4,000 for this.

    As I drive my Roadster all year round, I've already succumbed...All I really wanted was the door sill fix (as well)...at least this fix will keep the slush & grit off of my trousers...

    Yeah, I would definitely succumb to this if I drove it in the winter. With the Model S on its way (it is, right???) I don't expect I'll be driving the Roadster in bad weather as much as I do now. So I probably won't bother with this mod. I'd rather put the money towards a performance upgrade, such as upgraded brakes.

    Here are pictures with the door seals before any driving, after a week of driving in the dry and after today's downpour (driver's and passenger side). Normally after
    driving in the rain, my door sills are completely black so this is a definite improvement.
