What's the lane keeping assist like?

I suppose I will find this out for myself soon enough, now that I've bought it and just waiting to collect. But to manage my expectations, what is the lane keeping assist (LKA) like on the ID.3 for motorway driving? I haven't seen a lot in reviews about it, but from what I've seen in reviews of other cars, LKA is usually derided by reviewers as the cars tend to just 'bounce between the lines.' Apparently lane follow assist is the good technology, that keeps the car positioned well in the centre, but I believe that's only available on the highest trim levels of ID.3 (I think it's called Travel Assist on VWs if I remember rightly). So, is this true for the ID.3 as much as for other cars? That LKA just bounces the car between the lines and it's better to just turn it off?

LKA is not autonomous driving it is more of a safety aid in imo. It is not designed to keep you in the centre of the lane but to warn you and nudge you back into the lane if you get to close to the line. As had been said before it gets a bit too close before it does it and would be better if it did it earlier, generally not necessarily just ID3. It expects you to drive in the centre and to warn if you drift. LFA is more autonomous and requires less input from you and will steer on curves on DC or motorway.
