After 846 days of waiting, today was the day my launch green R1S was delivered. Honestly, the car seems damn near perfect. Panel gaps are consistent. Bolts are tight.

The only issue I found after careful scrutiny was the plastic trim around the driver side rear wheel well. It was slightly loose and wiggled a little like a loose tooth. The other side was secure and didn't move at all. Very minor issue, but I'll have service look at it if/when something else comes up.

I drove it on two short local trips. Picked the kids up from school. They were super excited to be picked up in the new rivian. I definitely saw some parents checking it out.

I didn't have an opportunity to open it up on the highway yet. No weird squeaks or noises so far.

Knock on warm ash wood trim...so far so good.

Didn't have time to take proper photos, but here's what I have so far:

My theory is that rivian is delivering cars with the best margin first. I opted for the 21" wheels (for maximum range) rather than the free upgrade to premium wheels. And I also chose the forest edge interior. Just a guess as to why I got mine so soon. Or it could be my place in line in the New England queue. Who knows why rivian does what it does...

Did it come with the spare tire?
I did not order the spare tire. But a friend who did order the spare didn't receive one with his R1S delivery (his delivery was about 3 weeks ago).

If those spares ever do show up in the gear shop, they’re gonna go quick! The tool kit has been constrained for months. I just don’t see this as a supply chain issue anymore. I’m guessing there is a redesign (who knows why) and we’re waiting behind the tonneau redesign. This is getting dumb.

Congrats on your new ride!
