  1. Rivian R1T Get Tinted Tail Lights, Front Light Charging Status Bar + Window Tint 😈

    Tinted lights look really bad. I think the murdered out trend is over by the way. On the plus side, we don’t need to all have the same taste. What’s the saying?Food and colors…
  2. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    Surprised that Rivian is letting this happen. But I guess a client is a client so why not.
  3. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    Is the pre-order even transferable to another buyer or are people willing to pay taxes twice? )Pre order holder buys and pays taxes then sells to person willing to pay ADM for a now user vehicle and also has to pay taxes…)
  4. 📬 Rivian Sends Delivery Window E-Mail. What’s Your Dates? => Vote in Poll!

    Oops, maybe I should have gotten an LE instead of waiting. Glad to see that being an early-ish (April 2019) reservation holder doesn’t make a difference.
  5. My Norcal Sonoma First Mile Event Impressions and Videos

    Yes, I agree with you. I feel like the R1T is just a slightly bigger and much nicer Tacoma. Under seat storage is just for a slim box of tissues, some band aids and a banana I think. I was disappointed by the fact that it’s not roomier and that’s why I didn’t cancel my Raptor order(s)...
  6. My Norcal Sonoma First Mile Event Impressions and Videos

    @slider2828 there are videos of grown men in it (and I saw a few people doing it at the Sonoma event - no, it wasn’t me…). I do have a smaller family than yours (3, no dog) so that might be why I consider the frunk big enough. And for the tailgate, the best might be to do 2 trips rather than...
  7. My Norcal Sonoma First Mile Event Impressions and Videos

    I’m not agreeing on the frunk being small. Bigger than my 911 and much bigger than my M3P. You can fit a human being in it and I could easily fit a whole week of groceries in there - maybe we need to eat more ;) As for the tailgate, I also disagree. I found it rather easy to close with one...
  8. Can we be honest with each other - what benefit does a Rivian have over upcoming EVs?

    I guess that gap is filled by the model X… I’m one of the ones considering both. CT and R1T. Technically I’m cross shopping it with the Raptor as well (got an old preorder for R1T, recent for CT, and 2 orders for a Raptor).
  9. Fixed Rear Window

    Not planning on putting any lumber of any sort in this truck - might be in the wrong line of work for that - but a window that goes down like on the Tundra would have been cool (yes, yes, packaging issues). In reality, the rear window is very small from inside and could not accommodate a...
  10. First Rivian Supercharger Spotted @ Irvine Facility

    They’re hiring and want to be seen as an employee friendly company…
  11. Take delivery before a test drive?

    I wasn’t ready to do that and I’m happy I did the extremely short test drive on terrain that doesn’t represent in any way where we’d drive it 95% of the time. That being said I could have lived with just getting to sit in it to get a feel for the space, layout and materials. It’s a nice vehicle...
  12. 8 business days until Thanksgiving… are LE preorder holders getting contacted by our guides?

    Did you really want to get a call on Thanksgiving telling you you’ll have to wait a few more months? I think Rivian’s mention of Thanksgiving always meant end of November. In hindsight, they should have picked a day that’s not a nationwide day off.
  13. Do I really need the Max Pack?

    Wild guess… coz most people can’t afford a $90k+ vehicle so they opt for the model they can afford that provides the most range (combined with their needs). But you already knew that.
  14. LIMESTONE Rivian Club

    I was told it’s very similar to BMW grey (the fake Porsche Chalk or Audi Nardo). Turns out there’s at least 3 shades of BMW trendy grey but I’d think it’s the one we see on the M5.
  15. Do I really need the Max Pack?

    Using 20-80%, we’d still be looking at 170 miles. 10-90% would be 226. On road is one thing but off-road (real off-road stuff not like dirt trails) would impact range even more. Better not get lost in the Mojave desert ;) and yes I’m being a little dramatic about it. i was going to add that you...
  16. Do I really need the Max Pack?

    And wait another year :(
  17. Do I really need the Max Pack?

    Went back to Sonoma first mile event to get a better look (no test drive this time). Sat in yellow with ocean interior (among others) and paid attention to values displayed. All purpose mode (weird name by the way). 71% battery charge 162 miles range left 20” AT tires A fully charged battery...
  18. Quick Chat with CS about delivery timeframes

    Besides potential distance to a service center, it looks like you’ve got everything going for you. LE, early reservation. I’d be optimistic if I were you.
  19. Quick Chat with CS about delivery timeframes

    Spoke, face to face, 2 weekends in a row now, with Rivian employees at Sonoma First Mile event. They all said the same thing: configuration, area I live in and (of lesser importance) when I ordered. One also mentioned that getting/switching to the max pack would push things back by potentially a...
