    Finally took my bolt in for "final" recall service.

    ... or is it just in my head? We had the final recall update performed a few weeks ago. Since, I know how to limit charging to 90% on my own, we never bothered with the interim fix. After the final recall-update/fix, we think we are having substanitially less regenerative braking when in "L"...
