parking sensor retrofit not ready yet but...

I got an email from ownership experience that says they are trying to assess customer interest in this. So if you are interested let them know. Evidently they are keeping track of who responds.

If all you read is this, then know that TMC has decided not to offer this as an upgrade/retrofit. They say the cost is about $6K. I have heard all sorts of reasons for this from you have to replace the bumper to you have to replace the system console computer. Not sure what to believe except that they are not going to offer it.

yes interested.

Yes, interested at a reasonable price.

Not interested in sensors, but very interested in front camera.

For those regretting not getting the sensors, don't worry too much. I had sensors in my BMW X6 which worked great, and were very accurate. These don't seem too accurate. I'm not impressed and trying to determine if they are even useful.

I bought my Model S three months ago because I was told if be able to retrofit the sensors on my car when it was released. Not 20 minutes ago I accidentally backed into another car because I looked forward for a second as I was backing up. Fortunately there wasn't any damage but I'm the type of driver who can really use sensors. I've had nothing but great things to say about Tesla and I've been telling anyone who'd listen about it but if they don't offer the retrofit I will feel cheated and very upset.

I've told everyone I know who owns a MS to email Tesla to insist on them offering the retrofit. If you want sensors keep sending emails!

It has to cost at least $2K to retro fit a car with sensors, if not more.

Check out the thread New Service Center Scottsdale, AZ where @Roamer mentions that he is having the parking sensors retrofitted at the same time he is having some body work done. It doesn't sound like it will definitely will work, but he is giving it a try.

It will be available, but only at an unreasonable price. Or SLT... >:p

Too late for me. I just scraped up the rear bumper corner badly by backing into a car that wasn't supposed to be in my driveway. I was looking at the nav planning my route and not at the backup camera right below it. What an idiot (me). Now I have to repair two cars. Would something beep, beeping me have helped? Dunno. Deaf and dumb.

I've had front parking sensors on my car since February. It's labor intensive, but the parts are cheap. I think total cost was $100. Now these work fine, but it's not nearly as nice as the new Tesla integrated display. Anyway, I documented the entire process at:

The Tesla $500 option is a bargain, and I would have taken it over a DIY installation. I know shops have been doing them for about $1500 to $2000, and that's actually not unreasonable considering the amount of labor required.

If you really want sensors, consider doing only the front, which is a bit easier. I find the rear camera does a reasonable job of showing obstructions, and I really don't miss having rear sensors.

I'm interested.
