Driving US model in EU

There are a lot of US Tesla 3 models imported from US to EU. Doing my research, I found several threads explaining how some features, as supercharging navigation, FSD are not working in Europe.
I would really appreciate if some US vehicle owner from EU can share their experience. 🤗
