  1. Guide Contacts & Counting by Thanksgiving?? Can they do it??

    13 more to get removed from their mail and telemarketing campaigns trying to get you back...
  2. Has anyone on this forum received a confirmed delivery date?

    I once bought a Subaru Outback. 6 weeks later, I got notified of a major transmission recall. Apparently a batch of the manual transmissions had been built missing an interior drain hole for the flow of transmission fluid. The service center had to pull it out, take it apart, drill the holes...
  3. Has anyone on this forum received a confirmed delivery date?

    What do people think a "slow ramp" is for? You ramp up slowly as a form of quality control. The whole point is to find issues you didn't catch in pre-production runs. You correct the issues, re-tool, change course, and try again. A slow ramp could mean a batch is produced, an issue is found, a...
  4. Real Rivian Photos & Videos

    Maybe it only shows up if a trailer is connected?
  5. Vehicle trade-in with Rivian

    I think we're ok on trade ins even if the transaction officially occurs out of state: It doesn't mention anything about where the transaction takes place, and specifically says sales and use tax are calculated the same way.
  6. How to buy Rivian Pre-IPO stocks.

    In context, that was a statement about IPOs in general. But there's also no way they "guessed" at their 80B figure. I give it a 90% chance of having a good first day whenever they go out. First 6-12 months? That's anyone's guess.
  7. How to buy Rivian Pre-IPO stocks.

    It's priced to pop, but that doesn't mean it always will. FB definitely erred more on the side of not leaving money on the table. Most companies aren't going to have quite as much sway with their underwriters. Then you often have downward pressure after the initial hype, and especially as those...
  8. How to buy Rivian Pre-IPO stocks.

    A percentage of shares of the offering refers to the Initial Public Offering. These will not be "pre-IPO" shares, so they will not be subject to the accredited investor rules. The way IPOs work is the first ever investments from the general public close as a round of funding the night before...
  9. Low Speed Pedestrian Warning Sound

    Virtually all "off-roading" is still on public roadways. It could be even worse for a pedestrian on a fire road for a silent vehicle to sneak up on them as they would really not be expecting it. I don't think there's a practical way to give people control over when it's on or off without...
  10. 🔍 Rivian App Deep Dive Preview: A Breakdown of Future Services

    Do you have gas service? The electric dryer, water heater, and forced air furnace (which we have since replaced with a heat pump, though we still have resistive coils for winter backup heat) added up to quite a lot.
  11. 🔍 Rivian App Deep Dive Preview: A Breakdown of Future Services

    Contractor who built our house had a demand load of about 190A which just barely fit into a 200A service (no gas service, all electric). We upgraded from 200A to 400A immediately after moving in (that wasn't a cheap project; thankfully no transformer work, but our utility requires using a CT...
  12. Lack of Android Auto / Waze is a reason to cancel

    Gotta love internet arguments. But when your pet peeve is the thing being discussed, you have to jump in (even against your better judgement). - CarPlay is free to license. I believe AA is too. - For the tin foil hat crowd who thinks this is at Amazon's insistence, I highly doubt Amazon has...
  13. InsideEVs: Rivian R1T First Drive Review

    The ID.4 will let us pick mi/kWh, km/kWh, or kWh/100km. Note the metric units are available in both forms but the US units are only available in the mpg analog. Most other countries use the L/100km format (and metric units). Since mi/kWh and Wh/mi are just reciprocals of each other, I think...
  14. Changing color after confirming configuration????

    The window for ordering a Launch Edition (trim) was limited. Any Launch Edition may be configured to be Launch Green (optional color). Launch Green is only available on Launch Edition vehicles.
  15. RJ: Some Early Rivian Deliveries Go To Earliest Company Employees!

    Not sure they're mutually exclusive. The early insiders may well have plunked down $1000 for a reservation. They may even have had a chance to do it shortly before the reveal. So I don't think it's unreasonable to assume they were bonafide customers who were ahead of us in line. I get why...
  16. Max output from the 110v plugs in the bed

    The cooktop will manage how much power it's asking for to stay within the plug-and-cord power limit. We have a 2-burner induction cooktop in our Sprinter build. Our model won't let you run both burners on high (10/10) at the same time. IIRC, when one burner is set above 4/10, the second maxes...
  17. Rivian R1T OWNERS MANUAL Guide is here! 📒

    I was wondering the same. My guess is to have the capacity to be winch-ready. There's no alternator (in an ICE, you'd be idling the engine when winching), and it's unlikely the DC-DC converter is a suitable replacement for one for that kind of a load.
  18. Relocating to Europe with my Rivian?

    Don't forget that the EU uses type 2 EVSE connectors, so you'll also need an adapter.
  19. Rivian R1T OWNERS MANUAL Guide is here! 📒

    "With individual tire pressure display." I suspect you can see the individual pressures in the vehicle details on the infotainment system any time you want and that the dummy light comes on when any tire is low.
  20. Driver+ Limitations

    Should work fine as long as there's a car ahead of you (and if there isn't, you shouldn't have any problems getting above the minimum speed first):
