"A" Pack upgraded to "D" pack - slow supercharging

Not sure where to post this exactly.

My 2012 S 85kw "A" pack was replaced with a "D" pack. Yay me! (Thanks Tesla!!)

When I supercharge I never get close to 90Kw let alone 150 or 250 Kw.

Did Tesla forget to flip a virtual dip switch?
Is my 2012 too old to support higher charging despite the pack being newer?
Am I a second class citizen because I have unlimited free supercharging grandfathered in?

Anyone else have a similar experience?

And yes, after 10 years of ownership, I am well aware that a depleted pack charges faster - but I rolled in to a supercharger last week with 1% SOC and the needle barely got close to 60Kw. :(
