My car arrived four days before what the dealer was telling me. Maybe they're looking at different systems, or maybe the dealer is padding the delivery date based on unknown truck schedules after rail dropoff. Anyway, hope you get it sooner than later!

My ETA in the Ford system was December 12th. The dealer called the afternoon of the 11th to tell me that my car had arrived and was inside their service area waiting for my inspection.

10/29/2012 - Put a deposit down and completed the order with my salesman.
11/01/2012 - Received email from retailorders@fordprogramhq.com/Order approved and tracking number provided. But I'm not sure why, as I have no means of following it without my salesman's help.
11/23/2012 - Salesman provided me the VIN.
11/30/2012 - Window sticker showed up on ResearchManiacs.com. Blend 120121206. (I think tomorrow 'may' be her birthday).
12/03/2012 - Salesman advised ~arrival date of 12/24/2012...hohoho!

I got a little anxious around November 20th and popped off an email to the above Ford address:

Me,

felixdd An update -- a few days after I PM'd FCS, i called the dealer and they gave me the VIN outright. The car is scheduled to roll off the line tomorrow and I'll probably take delivery next week-ish but at least now I have a ballpark (which is what I really wanted anyways)


Thanks all for your assistance!!
