    Keeping black plastic trim BLACK!?

    Yeah, it looks good after you coated it. I'm really surprised that the trim was fading at all on such a new vehicle. My Jeep has the same black plastic trim and it still looks brand new even though it's a 2019.

    Hurricane evacuation - Rivian versus ICE truck

    Hmm....okay. I've never experienced not being able to find gas since there are so many gas stations everywhere. That's why I was thinking that the only issue would be if power was knocked out and they couldn't pump. Gas shortages around here have never been a thing, at least since the 70s when...

    Conflict at the Supercharger

    It is ridiculous. The attitude of some people here is just as bad as the Tesla owner in question. Actually, it's quite sad and does nothing to make people want to switch from ICE to EV.

    Hurricane evacuation - Rivian versus ICE truck

    Huh? No power to the pumps is what knocks out gas stations.

    Flat tire. No spare.

    Most vehicles that come with a factory tow hitch or have a tow package still come with a full size spare tire. It's still pretty standard in the automotive industry since towing without a full size spare doesn't make much sense.

    Electric Upgrade Offer: get up to $5,000 off R1 purchase when trading in gas-powered vehicle

    Exactly. So if I trade my 2019 Grand Cherokee in on an R1S (which is something that I was considering at one point in time), then I save $1,000 off the price of the R1S, but I bet I lose more than $1,000 on the trade-in value.

    I'm sorry that you failed to comprehend my message in such a big way.

    Conflict at the Supercharger

    I can understand a situation when someone has no other choice in a situation like this, but my issue is with people who somehow seemingly look forward to causing this type of conflict and take pleasure in it. I just think that's not a good attitude and does nothing to help the cause for electric...

    Keeping black plastic trim BLACK!?

    I'm surprised that any Rivian owners are using trim restorer of any kind at this point. Are you guys getting fading already on the black plastic trim? Or just being proactive? Reason I ask is because I think black plastic should be a matte finish as it was when new and most of these...

    Exactly the wrong attitude. The amount of likes on your comment saddens me.

    Beating the bird poop!

    Sure, but I'm saying that you need to get it off quickly and even then sometimes the damage is already done. It's probably a good idea to keep a protective coating on the paint to minimize etching or prevent it if you can.

    Beating the bird poop!

    That's a lot of poop. I'm not sure if you're big on preserving your paint finish, but keep in mind that bird poop can be pretty acidic and can etch the clearcoat, causing damage that may require wet sanding to repair.

    YouTube App and Google Cast video streaming coming to Rivian infotainment system

    So far, subscriptions for automotive companies have largely failed. BMW trying to put CarPlay/AA into a subscription was a failure. Heated seats as a subscription? Failure. Even "selling" cars themselves as a subscription has been a failure. Is anyone even trying to do that anymore? Ironically...

    KIA EV9 vs. Rivian R1S: Comprehensive Overview, Key Questions, Buy or Lease Scenarios?

    I think it's just a matter of time before the EV9 exceeds the sales numbers of the R1S. That's because it has so many advantages (including price) for the average family. The R1S should remain the enthusiast's choice though, but that's a more specific use case. The R1S will still sell well...

    YouTube App and Google Cast video streaming coming to Rivian infotainment system

    Would have been nice if it used our cell phone's unlimited data rather than having to pay for yet another cellular data service (meaning one from Rivian). Because we know for sure that's exactly what's going to happen shortly. I can see it now---your new Rivian comes with 3 months of free data...

    Has anyone tried this tire?

    I had those Contis on my Jeep. They seemed to be an average tire at best, definitely seemed more street oriented than all-terrain. They drive like your basic all-season tire, very smooth and very quiet.

    Keep Porsche 991 (2019 Carrera) & buy a cheap Truck OR trade-in Porsche for a Rivian

    Responses like that always make me smile. Lots of enthusiasts modify their vehicles. I could show you quite a few "lowly" Audi S3s that would absolutely leave any Rivian in the dust with ease. Moral of the story: Don't make the mistake of assuming that you're in the stoplight drag races against...
