    If you're talking about an audible Lock Confirmation, the Roadster has had it from the start.

    Just sayin'...

    So a beep when it locks... that’s annoying, and does nothing to keep me hidden when I’m creeping

    i suspect the model 3 has such a sound because eventually some packages will not have the folding mirrors to indicate a locked car.

    in a S/X, the folding mirrors are a clear indication, which i still find irrelevant because the car will lock anyways without the key nearby.

    Not if a door is ajar.
    Also requires looking back as you walk forward or walking backwards.

    my mistake. in that case, we're still in an X thread so my point is still valid for Model X only. Front doors will latch shut automatically unless blocked by physical obstacle and falcon wing doors are impossible to miss if they're open.

    And it's not unusual for the doors not closing completely once in a while. For example, a bag or jacket hanging on the edge, faulty door that won't close on an incline, etc.

    To each his own. I find the lock confirmation sound reassuring especially when visual confirmation is missed due to an obstructed view...
    I have, on occasion walked back to make sure it’s locked, especially when people were in the proximity of my Model S that could potentially open the door before it locks automatically.

    The S waits a long time before it locks, the X is so much better.

    With MX, people have to figure out how to open it first :)

    I just check on the phone App if I'm not sure it's locked. But usually go off the folding mirrors and signal flash for locking confirmation.

    In 2 scenarios, I walked away from my MX not realizing that it didn't lock. First time, my FWD detected a false obstruction and was only a few inches away from closing. It beeped, but I guess I wasn't paying attention and walked into my friend's house. When I went back to my car a few hours later, my FWD was still slightly ajar. The other time, I had left my fob in the car and went into Costco.

    Since then, I've become extra paranoid/cautious about making sure my car locks. Checking the app to make sure it's locked helps too, but I wish the MX had the audible lock chime like the 3 does.

    This morning I triple-tapped the lock button and all the doors closed. Then I checked my app 3 hours later and it showed unlocked. And my key was 100 yards from the car...

    they don't always.

    Perform this experiment (not sure if you have X): open passenger door just a hair and then try to ask the car to close it from the fob - was failing on my car and I was told this is as designed (the problem is the door does not build enough momentum to overcome the resistance of the rubber seals and eventually gave up trying to close).
