I ordered in 2018 -shortly after they opened up the pre-ordering. Still waiting ..... live in California didnt order anything special. Really bummed to see others that ordered after me getting theirs. HAPPY they got theirs. Just wished I wasnt getting the shaft. Correction - was just told I ordered early 2019.

Also, I am in the Seattle area next to Amazon and a service center, and changed the interior to black but who the heck really knows what really makes a difference...
Thats exactly it ... who knows what makes a difference? I know customer support doesnt know or isnt willing to tell you. Heck I was told by several support folks that they could not confirm or deny if I changed to R1S (year or so back) that it would impact my delivery date. I took from those conversations that switching to R1S wouldnt significantly add to delivery date.
Talking to them now after they moved my date way out (was April May, then May June... now further out) didnt provide any assurance that would help me understand where I stand in line. Guessing there is a Forum thread that discusses your order date/number and how they dont really go by this for xyz reassons (if it exists and someone has that share the link).

Surely I dont have enough insight into how to handle the complexities of some sort of IF/THEN selection of options that would allow you to basically order the most prevalent / fastest options to speed up your order, but one would think they could do this. Heck even just have an option that allowed you to say give me any Launch edition available or something significant such as that so you dont box yourself into some extended wait time because you wanted 21" wheels instead of 20" (for example)....

Only options are Forest green, wall charger, and floor mats. Maybe I should delete the floors mats and/or wall charger... :unsure:

The other thing is that our family car (Acura MDX) lease expired in June and we returned it because we had a May-June delivery date (the updated one from the original one of course) and now we are without a family car which the Rivian was supposed to replace. In Rivian's defense, the auto industry seems to be in big trouble - Acura paid me $6k to return my battle scarred MDX (when I was expecting to have to pay them to fix the damage!).

Again, not Rivian's problem, they owe me nothing but my deposit, but my wife is getting antsy about all this :oops:
Similar situation here with family car/lease. We sold ours instead and basically paid for the 2/3's of the lease. Nice that Acura paid you when you returned it... kind of astonishing really. Im fairly certain that most lease returns, the dealer is NOT telling the customer that their vehicle is worth more than the payoff and compensating them for it.
