How Do I Determine if I have vision or radar configuration

I ordered my 2021 LR Model 3 in late April and took delivery late June. So, I guess I am on the cusp of whether my car is equipped with radar or vision. I can’t find documentation to know which version i have. How do i determine that? Thanks.

Drive with Traffic Aware Cruise Control or Autopilot and check if you can set the following distance to 1. If you can, you have a radar. If you're limited to 3 (initially) or 2 (some recent firmware), you are vision only. That is what I would try, based on what I know of each version.

If you had a vision only car, you would know, because they would have informed you that the car was tesla vision only and made you accept it before releasing it to you. If you did not have to accept that you had a vision only vehicle, around that transition, then you likely have radar.

That- and vision is still limited to 80mph max set speed on AP, radar cars can be set to 90.

Big one would have been the you would have been required to "accept" the car with limited features that due to vision only. Full features to appear later (2 weeks)
