For me I just used light brake pedal pressure to get more regen than just driving in L would yield. Plus I extend the courtesy to those behind me of illuminating my brake lights so they know I am slowing down. It would be nice if there was something to indicate how close you are to max regen before friction brakes take over. The brake score sorta helps but it's after the fact and I'd like a reference while I'm braking.
Considering that the FFE doesn't slow down that much (compared to say the Bolt) when you're in L......I've never had a problem with people behind me noticing that I'm slowing down. And I'm not a crazy hyper miler that coasts to a stop from 4 miles away.
