    My old car had a function that increased the volume automatically as the car speed increased which was very handy. I'm assuming there is no such function on the M3. I cannot find it if there is.

    I would have thought it was pretty easy to put in with just a software change (if you are listening Elon)

    I've only noticed the volume suppressed when opening the door in our Model S. Maybe cars with the enhanced audio option have speed-sensitive volume?

    Seems a surprising omission.

    Tesla probably thinks their cars are so quiet that this feature isn't required :D

    I miss it too. It’s been a standard feature on my last few cars, even in a Skoda we had in 1998!

    You’d think it would be an easy add using a software update. In my scheme of things it’s much more useful than fart boxes and arcade games...

    While we’re updating audio, can I have a few more equaliser channels please :)

    On VAG cars, it's called GALA (Graduated Audio Level Adjustment) and it's been around since about 1995!

    Yes - I remember my V-reg (1999) Seat Toledo V5 had it.
