No, not something I've worried about at all. Pulling into someone's driveway is pretty bold. And if they do, they probably need that $1.25 of electricity pretty badly...

I installed the outdoor pedestals just a few months ago, but for 5 years before that, we've kept the plug from an in-garage charger outside strung under the door. Never had anyone pull into our driveway to steal power.

Good to know that you don't have to worry about that and the locals in your area are not that brazen. Here (well, certain "parts" of here), not only would they jack all the electricity they could, but taken the charger as their own lawn ornament ;)

Showed up in my driveway this afternoon!!!!

Never drove one before, I am very pleased. First time I hit the accelerator getting on the freeway it scared me enough to back off. I have fallen in love with the one pedal driving. I did put regen in standard instead of high though. I have no past experience with electric cars and what a way to break my virginity!

Delivery was pleasant, the gentleman from Rivian drove the truck from the service center (no flatbed) to my house. He then got a Lyft back home. Showed up with 23 miles on it. Kids played around for quite some time locking each other in the gear tunnel and the truck bed. Drove over a hundred miles just today messing around, showing friends. Get lots of looks, especially the guys who more than likely know what they are looking at. No others around my area that I know about.

Bummer is that my charger won't be here for a week or 2. Charging at 1,500 watts sucks and would take 2 days to get 20% charge. Having an electrician friend get a NEMA 14-50 plug installed temporarily this weekend.

We've been discussing this for years - the perceived color is heavily influenced by ambient lighting conditions (not to mention white balance issues in some of the pictures).
Your monitor's color settings will also have an effect. The images will look different on your phone (even between phones of different makers) than it does on your laptop screen which could differ from your desktop monitor which could differ from your TV and on and on.

Quite correct. But the point being made was that the actual paint color shifts quite spectacularly in person based solely on ambient lighting and regardless of the faithfulness of any photographic reproductions.

oh absolutely! My point was really just that I don't think it's possible to have a true photographic reproduction. Even Rivian's promo stuff varies in how it appears.

All of their colors are really, really deep and have some really fantastic nuance in varying light. I'm all in on Blue, but I don't think one could really go wrong with any of them.

I was all in with the Forrest Green gang. Not sure why but the last few picks have been very compelling.

Just took delivery of my R1T and have some pics.... Now starts the after delivery questions... thanks to this community for being so awesome.

1). With the key fob, do the doors auto unlock on approach like my tesla or do you need to physically press the button?

Sorry, my pics aren't the best... more to come.
