I contemplate moving to limestone every so often, but holding on for CY. I did just switch to the revised ocean coast interior though.
still a year away from receiving mine….

Sounds like a lot of you are pretty far from me, but if you are near Louisville, KY, or driving through the area, I'm more than happy to try to meet somewhere and show off my truck.

I love the color, and I really hope Rivian doesn't drop it from their lineup (the way Tesla constantly does).

To me, the Yellow just seems the the most appropriate color for an EV. ;)

For those with yellow already, how well does it hide dirt? I had a yellow Mustang a couple decades ago, and that was the best car I've owned for hiding dirt.

It's kind of unreal. My truck is filthy, and nobody believes me until I swipe a finger along it. The general road muck just disappears.

Our other car is a midnight silver metallic Model S (similar to El Cap), and I thought it was good, but it's nothing compared to CY.

I can’t wait to see one in person. CY photographs so different from in person.

Well, I just got off the phone with my Guide.

he said I am the only one of his and his colleague’s customers that have Compass Yellow R1S reserved and that may delay my order. I am in So Cal.

He then told me about a Forest Green R1S that was ready to roll out of Normal, if I wanted it.

What do you thinkI said?

Absolutely in love with the car. Only issue I had was a sensor warning, but a full reset of the car took care of that right away. If any other Rivian owners in the Los Angeles area plan on doing a meet up, please let me know!

If I go 21" on Red Canyon or Compass Yellow I will likely get them painted darker. About $100/wheel properly painted with my choice of automotive paint, not plastidipped.
I am powder coating the 21s satin black.

Finally picking up my truck after tint, ceramic, and PPF. It’s been a long week.

Wow, that's cheap. My guy quoted me $900 for set. Get ready to wait. They'll have to put in on a lift while painting,/curing

I am now configuring my 3rd Rivian. Two R1Ts deliver last May. R1S next.
Here is what I learned from my two trucks so far. Forest edge is awesome. I had it with LG. My other truck is RC with black. Both with 20s. RC is awesome too. It exceeded expectations. The LG is a very good color. As expected. Not surprising nor disappointing. Same with black interior. Thanks for all the photos!! They have convinced me to go CY/FE next!! Leaning towards black 20s.

I saw you on 168 this morning. You were parked in some sort of auto service spot just south of the strip mall. Then when I was going North on 168 around 3, think I saw you heading South in all the shit traffic.?

That was me! Tint/ceramic/ppf finally done this morning. I'm down by Eagle Creek, so I walked to pick the truck up this am and then just drove around. Yeah, surprised at all the OBX bound people clogging up the roads this late in the season..
