I am in the camp of paying as little as I can for it (Explore). Some people think If I am paying this much for a vehicle I want to reduce the chance of regret as much as possible so I get the top trim. I think EV industry is moving so fast that no matter what I get, I will regret why I didn't wait a few more years. So the less I pay the less regret I will have.

Adventure. Dark headliner and ventilated seats were important. The audio system was a factor too since I don't know if the base system is all digital/bus-based, or if it's easy to upgrade. I'll likely still want deeper bass than the Meridian can provide, but we'll see.
Who could have guessed a few years ago we make choices for $80K purchase without really knowing about all our options? I have driven standard version of many cars costing 1/3 of Explore with excellent sound. How bad can it be? We all deserve to see and hear all our options before delivery.

Seeing how they've already delivered vehicles to customers and they still won't let anyone try the powered tonneau because it's always broken/acting up/prone to breaking/etc. I almost wish opting out of the powered tonneau was an option!
I had to donate the car with perfect power train because there were too many automated features were on the fritz anything from the dual zone control unit to window motors. On the other hand, my eighteen year old truck with manual windows is running perfectly and if anything does go wrong there is a good chance I can fix it. I can't understand how people can be OK with all the work that goes with an unnecessary off road adventure but opening a tonneau cover manually is too much. The first thing my professor in first day of our automation class told us: "Make sure it is worth it before you add to system complexity".

I'm an R1S reservation holder and I think there's even less value to get the Adventure trim over the Explore. There is no power tonneau cover so the difference between the two are mainly the stereo system, ventilated seats and the wood trim. I have a hard time believing thats worth $5500. When I asked CS about this they said the R1S has more speakers than the R1T. Maybe I need to see and hear to determine if its worth the price diff.

And Chilewich? I'd rather pay $175 to get the all weather floor mats. Anything else is going to get dirty, stay dirty and wear down faster than all weather mats.
