Add tech features at the dealer?

There are really good deals right now on 2017 models, mostly without the advanced tech options. Can those be added by the dealer? Also, can 2017 models be updated to the 2018 standard of lane keep assist? As far as I know, the hardware is identical, and only a software update is needed. In fact, 2017 European Niros had lane keep assist instead of lane departure warning.

I don't think the tech stuff can be added at the dealer level, there are a lot of sensors involved. As far as I know, the lane keep assist is just for the 2018 models.

With the sunroof as part of the tech package (on the EX models) I'm glad they're not adding it at the dealer. Aftermarket (even dealer added) sunroofs don't usually end well.
