Thanks for jumping in! To provide an alternative, the window sticker includes the build date too. When it's available, look above the word "BLEND" at the top. The date is listed as "YYYYMMDD." There also may be a character in front of the year.

It arrived at the dealer with 100 or so miles on it, and from what the dealer told me, it was likely picked and tested by Ford.

Awesome looking Focus! The time frame was blazing fast too. It sounds like David Copperfield dropped by the plant when it was put together.

In my opinion, white and black are the coolest looking colors! Although, keeping them clean is a different story.

Since I got the SE hatchback I need to get some rims on it and tint the windows real quick!

You took it out on a few dates! Is the solar-tinted glass not dark enough for you? Inquire with your dealer about upgrading the tint. Look into these factory wheels, if you don't have them already:

Congrats! A wait may happen from time to time, but it'll be worth it in the end. Remember to post pics in this forum and on our Ford Social site for all to see:

You'll be chilling in the Titanium soon. When you're ready for an order status update, shoot me another PM.

A new Focus earns a well-deserved kudos! You also deserve this badge:

Looked it over, took a test ride, and told them I wanted it on Wednesday, took delivery on Saturday,
Its a Titanium in Tuxedo Black, Sony radio, Titanium handling package (nice wheels), winter package, My Touch and 5 speed stick transmission...

BTW the white Transit Connect behind it is my company car/van, another Focus, by another mother?

You're on the ball! We appreciate your loyalty; thanks for being part of the Ford family. I think this badge fits your perfectly:

This became an option earlier this year. Dealers are doing their part in making them more available. We're always listening to our customers and fans.

If anyone has recently ordered a Focus, please send me your VIN (or order # and dealer) and I'll be glad to check the status for you. Congratulations to all; thank you for your continued support!
