You can watch it now on YouTube. We should have it published to podcast networks shortly.

V10 battery improvements?

NO. 2018 M3 AWD LR should get 310 miles at 100%. In fact my range went down even more. Now 80% is only 235 miles. Used to be 250 miles! I charged to 100% just to verify and yup only got 285 miles. This sucks! I have been reading about Tesla being sued over a defect in their batteries being "covered up" and that they reduced range to fix it. A little honesty from Tesla would be nice!
 
I didn't notice any change. RWD - 90% gets me to 287. 100% - 319. But that last time I charged to 100%, about 6 weeks ago, I got 324 and actually achieved 325 miles range (260 to SC with 65 miles indicated range left). For this trip, I averaged about 211, cool morning, so minimal us of AC. AP set to 72 mph. On my daily commutes, I average around 212 - 218 w/mi. 19" factory wheels.

For anybody quoting their 100% range here, could you also state your average consumption in Wh/mi over the last few months? Also state what kind of wheels are set in the service tab (18, 19, or 20”). I would like to test a theory that these things are now part of the algorithm used for the remaining miles meter. This would explain a lot.

Anyone notice range improvements since updating to v10? I know a number of people (myself included) took a decent projected range hit on the past two updates. Curious if it’s been fixed.

Nope.
No appreciable change for the better.

80% charge on TM3P is still ~235-238, while it should be 248 miles. Delta 3-5% was lost to Tesla's firmware updates late spring/early summer (forgot the version #s).

It will probably take legal or regulatory intervention to recover it.
I don't care enough to start it, but will join when others (inevitably) will.

310mi. 7,100 miles on odometer. 284wh/mi average. 18” wheels. Always charge to 90%. Seems to be just fine.

For sure the wheel size does. It even says so if you change the wheel size on the later versions.
