My warranty replacement DU took five weeks to obtain, and one day to swap.

I'm hoping to convince them to pre-order the parts, once we find out which parts. It's getting much louder, and range shorter, and now there's a deceleration vibration, but it's still driveable.

The range shouldn’t change at all. If you’re referring to the GOM, yes, of course that changes.

I was able to drive mine during the five-week wait. My DU noise was fairly mild, though. Whether you can drive yours while until the parts arrive is your gamble. I doubt Toyota/Tesla care about any further damage that might me incurred to the existing DU, but it's possible the vehicle might decide to stop moving, and you'll have to decide if that's worth the impact to your lifestyle & scheduling.
