    Yes - none of the other manufacturers ever got any good at it.

    My new 75D has definately developed a bit of a rattle over the past weeks. Sounds like rear but not really triggered by bumps. I may have stumbled on a temporary solution if anyone else wants to try it. I put the suspension to high whilst driving, delete the memory thing, then after about 30 seconds drop it back to normal. No more rattle. Also definately no rattle when in high suspension. Not yet sure how long it takes for the rattle to return. Havnt tried extra low yet.

    Got mine back from the SC today, below is what they said.

    Concern: Rattling noise from front under heavy acceleration has returned. Please assess and order parts while customer is in for wheel alignment.
    Corrections: Exterior NVH General Diagnosis Roadtested vehicle with customer, vibration and intermittent knock from front end.
    Requires front shafts, jack shafts also RH motor mount. parts not in stock rebook when in stock,

    The noise I have is not from heavy acceleration. It generally happens whilst cruising with no acceleration

    Yeah, this actually seems to work for me. Thanks.
    Temporary but better than nothing while we wait for a solution.

    Maybe tesla should do an automatic suspension change from normal to high to normal each time the car is put into drive

    I'm waiting for my 4th set of front half shafts and back in July Tesla knobbled the acceleration in high/very high setting. Since then, our Perth "Service Centre" - NOT, has adjusted my standard height down as a fix of sorts. Both essentially software.

    I'm 51000kms and 18 months in to ownership and the "fix me" list is getting longer. :(

    Tesla and me are going to be friends long after the body warranty ever expires, unfortunately.
