I got to see the codes on my car recently at a SC. It is safe to say that there is a lot more on there than you would think, i.e. stuff that is standard on every Model 3 but is configured anyway.

I vaguely recall someone on here saying that they had a new rear windscreen fitted and for some reason had to get the heater element coded back on?

I have a heated steering wheel in my MY20 car - everything works, except the heating. 😆 The SC tech showed me on the tablet where it said that it was present but disabled on my car. No way for him to change it either :(

Any update on this? Did anyone try out? I am receiving my LR M3 in December and want to go to Denmark and was wondering if the new headlights need any deflectors or adjustment

there is an Rsymons video where he tested a Model Y that was brought over from Germany - the headlight pattern didn't automatically change over from a right hand side pickup to a left hand side pickup so I'd say you will want to install deflectors (unless you speak to Tesla and they are able to make a change for you over the air).

They definitely have way more bias for the side of the road we drive in. See this shot. You can see the drop off on the right and the left raised higher. This was immediately after a calibration by Tesla. Interestingly enough the correction on the invoice implies that it’s a standard “European” headlight setting
