Tesla API help needed - perf_config missing

Hello,

I was told by my service center that they have uncorked my late 2016 75D and also have it in writing.
I do not believe that they have actually done it as it was a back and forth to get them to agree to do it and they would not show me proof after doing it after I requested in person many times today (they have a very bad rep online for this behavior, so I have to check them).

I was sure I could open the API when the car was on my account as I did, but when going to the vehicle state, I do not see the perf_config line on either my 75D or my M3.

Please advise if this has somehow been removed or if there is another API I could use instead of Tesla Owner JSON API · Apiary.

Regarding my question above, I see on the forum now that it is reported that Tesla removed us from seeing the perf_config on the API, so no way I will know if this was done.

They removed it for sure about a year ago.

Mine is uncorked and it doesn't say anything about that in the car profile.

The only way now is by measuring.

Uncorking makes a fairly significant difference though, you should feel it right away.

My car was supposedly uncorked but then I got a newer loaner at the SC and it felt totally different. Told the service center and they confirmed the previous uncorking was not performed properly.

Thank you for confirming that yours does not say it in your profile! This helps me try to believe them.
Problem is I had a M3 that did 5.3 and now I have the 75D and I cannot feel if there is a difference, whether slower or faster.
I feel like it gives more of a kick, but I sold my M3 a few weeks back and cannot remember.
