So i find i have this issue, it kinda hits my chin rather than face, and at max can't get it up any higher, any definitive solutions, sounds like this went quiet for a couple of months? (mines a new october built MIC MY SR)

Passenger's side seems ok.

Just looking into how the AC works, i find that the gap in the driver's side horizontal a hair narrower than the passenger's side, so i'm wondering if the panel clips hasn't been clipped in properly.

I do find in fresh vs recirc to be 1 touch better than recirc.

Just received my 2022 M3 on 10jan23 in Sydney from China. Was surprised at the internal ac fan speed noise … on the high/noisy side on any setting over 3. Is this just me or a general issue?
I will pay attention to cooling behaviour over next 7 days.
@Lifecycled Is there any unusual aspect to the fan noise? Like whistling or fluttering or vibration or squealing? Or does it sound like normal air blowing, simply louder than you expect?

To me the HVAC fan is pretty unobtrusive on this car. Except when turned way up of course but that's the same in any car. Maybe something is not quite right with yours.

My Model 3 is an October 2021 Fremont build, with the heat pump.
I previously had a Fremont built SR+ the aircon was great. Just took delivery of 2022 build MIC model 3 in Sydney. I’ve only driven it twice but felt the aircon wasn’t as good as I was use to. I could get my last car COLD and this feels like its blowing ambient air and the angle was always lower. Now that it appears this is an issue I’ll do more testing and a service request if needed. Thanks for this thread!
