There's speculation from TSSportline and a few other places that there are new seats in new Model 3s. This image shows this supposed difference. Anyone able to compare new vs old seats?

Apparently they are wider too and T-sportline's custom seat covers don't fit anymore. That is what LikeTesla posted in a video. So if you bought your seat covers in advance there is a high probability they won't fit.

I have the new seats and can say without a doubt they are much, much better than the old ones. Why? Mainly because it's makes me feel special and greatly increases the resale value. Oh, wait, I'll never sell my car.....okay, maybe the old ones are much much better! LOL. Looks like a minor difference but mine are the newer ones. Next time I run across an older 3 we'll have to compare.

(edit....just realized I used the phrase "older 3" for a car that isn't even a year into production, remind me again, what other car company improves things on the fly?....just sayin)

I have VIN 18XXX and have Gen 2 seats but as we know VIN may not be the best indicator. Mine came off of the assembly line on April 10, so this change was made some time before that.

Mine is 175xx. Where can I find the mfg date?
When I took delivery I asked the person doing the paper work if she could tell me the exact date (not just month/Year) the car was built.

She told me that Tesla uses Salesforce.com for contact management and the date the vehicle departs the assembly line is always recorded. You would have to ask a Tesla employee who has access to their salesforce system.

Tesla absolutely knows somewhere the exact date, they would have to know for recalls, etc if ever needed, especially if they are not building them in VIN order as some speculate.
