My build date as given to me by my dealer is 11/7/2011. I have no window sticker. Etis shows my build date as "30.11.0002" and I'm just hoping that doesn't mean my car will actually be built on 11/30 instead. Someone here mentioned that the Etis build date (pre-window sticker) is a placeholder but I just want to make sure.
30.11.0002 is exactly the date that showed in ETIS for my Focus until the real data got populated a couple days after the build. Once it does populate, it will be in the format DD.MM.YYYY. I think you will see your window sticker soon. I was able to retrieve my window sticker on 10/8, and my car got built on 10/13. Data in ETIS showed up on 10/17. Still waiting on delivery, though. Status in dealer's system has been unchanged from "released from plant" ever since build was completed, even though it shows ETA for this week.
