California DMV - license plate / reg processing time?

hi all,

seeing some threads like this:


and also have had plates never show during 2020 on a diff purchase (AAA helped remedy).. just trying to get a sense of timing before I begin to panic. In a similar situation to prior plate disappearances / Tesla-not-registering-properly wherein a lien holder is waiting on me too.

I got my Y 3/31 (<1 mo ago) in Los Angeles, CA. Anyone get theirs around the same time and have plates / reg in hand?

thanks in advance for any data points!

We also picked up our Y on 3/31 and no plates so far.
 
Picked up our Model Y on 3/31 and still no plates/title/registration either...what is going on????
Update: Mine arrived 2 days after I posted this (47 days after we took delivery). Also, the same day I posted here (Sunday) I ended up emailing my local Tesla center by replying to the "order support" email they sent with instructions for delivery. Got a reply from them first thing the next morning on Monday confirming they had sent all paperwork in and they were able to send me a PDF copy of my new registration as well (which has the new plates # on it). They also said COVID was slowing the DMV processing times down. Copy of registration showed that it had been issued on 4/29/21 (about 30 days after we took delivery). On Tuesday, the plates and registration arrived.
