Anyone have ideas, preferences, or thoughts on roof options? Clear glass vs electrochromic vs two-piece removable composite roof and vs standard fixed roof?

Guess i'm most interested in pros cons of fixed vs electrochromic more than other options.

Mitsubishi Endeavor, pre-ordered R1S but may change to R1T
equal to that or more important, is the test drive. With the shelter-in-place I cannot see that happening soon
Ah yes, the test drive. Easily one of my top 3 or 4 checklist items. But I've had to change my expectation of when that will occur for some time now as Rivian stated some time ago this will not occur until just before they launch. As far as I'm aware this has not changed. Even their website in the FAQ section still states:

"Do you offer test drives?

Not yet, but we can’t wait to get you behind the wheel. We’ll be offering test drives closer to our launch at the end of 2020.
"​

Now with the shutdown delaying the launch, I wouldn't be surprised if test drives also get pushed into 2021. If it happens sooner, great, but for now I've shifted my expectation accordingly ... mainly for the sake of sanity.

If you haven't already you might want to check out these threads. IIRC there were a fair amount of opinions expressed.
