    I received my 2015 P85D about a month ago and when I first got started driving the regenerative braking would sometimes feel like it was going to force me around. It doesn't seem like it is braking as hard anymore when if I take my foot off the pedal.

    Have I just adjusted to the different braking from an ICE, or is there a chance that I should get it looked at? Any feedback and anecdotes about hwo the regenerative braking worked are appreciated.

    I have a similar experience. I also note that the firmness of steering has loosened a little as well. Definitely the first thousand miles looks to be a break-in period. The good news is that it doesn't seem to have changed much afterward.

    Yeah, that seems to be the timeframe for me. I have put about 1000 miles on my car since I got it and it seems to have not continued changing.
