I am just curious to know from fellow M3 owners if they see any noticeable miles being added with regenerative braking. I commute to San Jose on 880S and people who commute on 880 know how bad it is. While I am still waiting for carpool stickers, I use regular lanes and my M3 barely crawls. With so much braking I was expecting my M3 to not loose many miles. On a 20mile commute I still loose like 35miles one way. I used to drive Nissan Leaf before and if I remember correctly I wouldn’t loose many miles, because of so much braking leaf would end taking just 3-5 miles on a 20miles commute. I used to infact joke with friends saying if the traffic is this bad everywhere then I can go infinite miles.
I am starting to think if my M3’s regenerative braking is actually working or not. Is this typical of any M3? Is there a way to check if its really charging, i never saw miles going up during my drive.
