I noticed my regen (pressing left paddle ) auto disengages after some seconds. Is there a way to turn that off? I like the one-pedal driving style, and that appears to be the closest we can get.

I only noticed auto-regen disengages when battery is topped up to the limit (everyday 80% SOC), but that does make sense - battery is at max expected SOC, no need to regen automatically.
For the manual regen, I think it will disengage every time you press the accelerator / brake. At least that is what I have been observing.

Yep its auto regen. Unfortunately going manual is the only way to avoid that issue but then you lose some of the perks of auto-regen like the slowing down when approaching obstacles or keeping the distance to the car in front...

Yeah, ‘xactly. I want both.

In Auto Recuperation, a paddle setting is forgotten when you next touch the brake IIRC. I liked that mode's ability to slow down for cars in front but was less keen about it's inconsistency and (when it did work) it's over-conservatism about slowing for other hazards. My default setting now is Manual Recuperation but in that mode, while a paddle setting persists generally, after using and then disengaging cruise, it's forgotten and I like cruise a lot.

I don't often do a lot of driving on dual-carriageways / motorways but, when I do, I put it back to Auto Recuperation for the slowing down for cars thing. Full adaptive cruise came with an overly expensive option pack.

I’ve tried both and find they both have merits. Auto disables regen when you use the accelerator however, it lets you roll a bit longer if you lift off, giving some more range over time. With the manual mode, I find the car feels like there is a bit of a drag on the vehicle when you are accelerating and as soon as you lift off

I use manual too for the same reasons you do. I'm never confident with the consistency of regen braking. Manual mode gives me the assurance of a consistent, predictable outcome.
