I now have this. The SC is 4h away. but theres no delivery options...any ideas?
I'd see what your guide says about scheduling delivery and if you can get the next open day/spot.

A road trip would be a good way to get to know the car if you can spare the time. But I'd make sure fast charging works before heading out; there have been some stories of R1Ses only working with level 2 chargers upon delivery.

That’s what I’m a bit afraid of. If it’s at 100% with 22’s I should make it. Even with the cooler temps. But if I’m 250 away and it doesn’t do they just give my car back? Give a loaner?

When I said I was flexible on color I got a call and told what was available that met my other criteria. I picked one, was sent a PBA with the new configuration and told I was Matched to a VIN and should get 8-Steps in a few days.
It’s the delay on 8-Steps that has me wondering. Also, I was not given the actual VIN but told it was for a 2023.
The VIN should be on the top of the purchase agreement in the box right next to the miles.

So guide reached out after hours after I screenshotted the issue. Service/Delivery team texted at 803 and I have a in home delivery for Monday!

834 days! (and I waited in 2020 to preorder because I didn't want it to be too soon...haha)

My overall take away is to be reasonable to the guide but it seems either I got lucky or some nudging helped move things along. All major Rivian communications occurred about 1 hour after she responded to my questions.

Do you know where your R1S was when you got the 8 steps? Will be interested in your timing to get it shipped from Normal to Irvine.

Got my 8 steps this morning! It's odd since I talked to my guide yesterday and he mentioned they didnt have a vin match for me yet.

*Edit* Got to the insurance part of my steps, there's the VIN! 2023 model, #37XX

Went from getting the VIN to "its at your service center awaiting inspection" in 5 days!

Got my 8 steps Monday. 40xx VIN. Asked guide and he says its built, in Normal ready to ship. On my T it took 6 weeks from this point. Expecting the same. Gives me time to sell my current car 3rd party since Rivians trade in price is terrible.

Picking up Saturday. 6 weeks sounds right west coast. Will be 3 weeks and one day from guide call/8 steps. In theory it could have been 3 weeks but I could not do pick up on Friday. Picking up Saturday am.

I'm not quite following. Did your guide tell you what your VIN is? Or just that you've been matched to a VIN (to be revealed later)? Do you know NN or PN (MY22 or MY23)?
jumping in here...the guide can give you your VIN# and it you will have it once the 8-step starts as you will need to get insurance done with a VIN# whether you use Rivian or your own insurance agency. Good luck!

I talked with my Guide and have been told I am matched to a VIN! I was told it'd be a few days before being invited to start the "Digital Purchasing Process." Is that delay what others have experienced?
Not for me, my purchase process started the next day.
