    x90d? The only vibration you have is Lane Departure Warning.

    Turn it on, find a slightly curve road, let the car crossing the lane line itself. Make sure there is no any car around you.

    It feels like you drive over the lane mark with reflection lights. It might works actually, but you might thought it was from the lane :)

    If you “steer” it over the line it might not vibrate. You need to “drift” over the line. It needs to think you are not in control.

    For a second there I thought you were longing for the steering wheel to vibrate. Was gonna suggest hitting a few deep potholes

    The lane departure warning on my model s was very faint, but you could definitely tell when it activated.

    Not exactly sure what your saying, but I think the answer is no. If you deliberately steer over the line with blinker off, it may not vibrate or alarm. Like someone had posted above, try it on a slight curve and let it go straight. It seems fairly smart on what is real drift vs controlled driving over the line. This is nice because it rarely falses too. But it can be a little tricky to test that it's working.

    Oh and if another car is in your path, in the other lane it will REALLY let you know.

    Sometimes it just lightly bumps the wheel back into your lane and other times it vibrates and then bumps you back. It's a little hard to predict what it will do when. Don't assume it's broken.

    Also make sure it's enabled correctly.

    You might also experiment with the steering modes (Sport vs Normal etc.), it might affect how strong you feel it.
