Hi, in California. Picked up my Model 3 last week and didn’t receive anything regarding my car registration except the paper plates. Should I have received something?

I am in the same boat. Got my M3 in California with paper plates that expire Dec 2021(car delivery was Sept 2021). When I got the car the rep told me we had till December to get the car registered which made no sense, as we paid the registration fee.

Well I should have waited a day. Mine came in the mail today oct 12, so just about 2 months.

I haven't bought a car since they came out with paper plate. Do they still tape a temporary registration paper on your windshield or the paper plate replaces that entirely?
