    Firmware update "Best Practices" for MS owners to check for/mitigate known anomalies:

    * Leave car alone while updating. Trigger update, leave, walk away.
    After update is complete:
    * Reboot both screens (hold L+R thumb scroll bar until center screen reboots, hold L+R top thumb buttons until dash screen reboots).
    * Check bluetooth pairings. If existing pairing doesn't work, delete and re-pair.
    * Check side mirror auto-tilt. If it was "forgotten", re-set tilt and save.
    * Check regen braking and steering setting. Toggle/reboot/toggle option if either seems incorrect.
    * Check that suspension lowering setting is correct.

    +++ Please post adds and corrections, I will edit/accumulate in top post +++
    +++ Mods, should this be sticky? +++

    FWIW, Here's my experience:

    - I've done the reboot (both screens) on about half of my updates. Can't really tell if it helps (but it can't hurt...).
    - I've had BT pairing fail once after an update (bad call quality was the sign). But its failed a couple other times well after an update. Delete and re-pair always fixes issues.
    - Never had side mirror auto-tilt be forgotten after an update.
    - Never had regen issues after an update...

    I noticed when I got 5.9 the second time (strange enough that I got it twice) that I had to set my auto-lowering for the air suspension again.

    I never reboot after an update, and haven't had any issues after an update either.

    What I *do* do, however, is I leave the car alone for about 15 minutes when it's updating. Trigger the update, then leave and walk away.

    I don't reboot on every update but back on 5.8 my steering changed from Sport to Normal and my regen changed from normal to low even though the touchscreen toggle appeared unchanged. A simple reboot didn't work - I had to toggle steering back to normal, and regen back to normal, then reboot again before it worked.
