50 or a little more sound right to me. Since regen is only about 85% effiecient, I tend to coast more are rarely let all the way off of the go pedal except at slow speeds...

The reason I ask is because someone told me that I have a 75D drive unit and he based this on regen and slight whine during regen. A Tesla rep said that the drive unit is original, so I’m kinda confused.

It's very unlikely you have a 75D drive unit. The non-performance dual-motor cars use a smaller rear motor than the rear wheel drive (and Performance) cars. I don't think a single small rear drive unit is a valid configuration for the Model S. Only large rear, large rear + front, and small rear + front.

I get higher and lower (X). Just as the power taken from the battery during driving depends on conditions and how far you press the pedal so does the amount restored to the battery during regen depend on conditions and how far you release it.

70-80kw for a few minutes when I plug in at single digit %, quickly dropping to about 50kW and falling under 40kW by the time it reaches 50%.

The worst part of batterygate is the updates that turned supercharging into 3+ hour stops. They haven't even updated the charging app wit hthe slower charge times yet to its estimates are off by hours, a snide reminder of what my car was before it was ruined by an OTA.
