2015 Model S to 2018 Model S - Proximity Sensor Warning Arcs?

2015 Model S to 2018 Model S - Proximity Sensor Warning Arcs?

So, I just upgraded from a 2015 MS to a 2018 Long range Model S.
I noticed that the proximity arcs have disappeared, but then again, I'm not sure they were ever there.
Are they present on the newer models that have the lanes and surrounding vehicles highlighted?

I had them in my HW1 2016 S and they’re still there in my 2018 S. If you don’t see them in your new car there might be something wrong with the sensors. Do they work when parking?

Keep in mind that the arcs are less noticeable in cars with HW2+ because the instrument panel display of your car and surrounding vehicles is scaled down relative to the HW1 display. Maybe that explains what you’re (not) seeing.
