I was curious because Etis still shows very little info and the build date is 9/20/2011 in Etis and on the window sticker. Was hoping Etis would show minor features by now...
your ETIS should be fully populated either tonite or tomorrow night. I think the updates are done around midnite

When you refresh the site you'll get a message stating something to the effect that the vehicle you registered cannot be verified that it has a sync unit installed. The website will give you the option of verifiying the install ignore the message.

When your car is built and the Sync/MFT is activated at the factory your Focus SyncMyRide page will be updated with all you Sync version info.
It it located under the Account settings tab. I just got done setting mine up and this is what it shows:

Sync VersionGen2 - V2.11
Confirmed installations
BT4T-14D546-AP
BT4T-14F496-AS
BT4T-14F497-AP


Waiting to download 0 items.


good stuff. The BT4T stuff are hot fixes or updates. if you plug the numbers into google search you can tell what they are.

Well i picked up my focus on thursday night and was so busy i've managed to put 170km on it lol, loving it, i havent found any problems besides 2 tiny paint chips on plastic parts so they're ordering some touchup for me, most ppl probly wouldnt even see them, i'll upload pics of my car tomorrow when i get a chance to get my camera out

As for the Ambient lighting, it doesnt seem to change the colour unless the car is on, it changes and is on during the day u just cant see it much, it's not overly bright but its nice

Manual tranny runs well, now that im getting used to the clutch, moved my golf today and its clutch was so rough lol

Congratulations. Quite the wait but at least you (almost) have it. Hope all goes well Mon or Tues and hope even that couple of day wait isn't too painful but at least you know it is there. Have fun with it when you do get it and look forward to hearing about it (agree with you, though, it would be nice to see MGBox get some good news and soon)!

You were spot on! Etis was fully updated this morning.

Confirmed what I ordered and noticed a few uncertains:

With Kysor Radiator Shutter
BV61-5310-NG* Left Front Coil
BV61-5310-NG* Right Front Coil
BV61-5560-NG* Left Rear Coil Spring
BV61-5560-NG* Right Rr Coil Spring
Engine Cover - Under Hood - I may need to insist if not actually there

BTW does anyone know what this means:

Ice Feature Pack 24

Dealer texted me to say it left the plant yesterday and should be to the dealer by Monday.

Pretty amazing since I ordered Aug 30th.

Congratulations and thank you! Hopefully they can give me a rail car on monday. The closer the date gets the more I'm expecting another delay. Too many times I've told people "I should get it next week!". My answer now is "nope" or "never". I hate being asked when I'm getting my car, because I have no idea.

My dad decided to get a new ranger and is picking it up this week, his wife decided to get a sonata about two weeks ago and should have hers shortly as well. They're both bugging me I've been waiting the longest and need a car, and they'll have theirs first then go on vacation and leave them idle :P

Hi, I am new to this forum. I ordered a 2012 Ingot Silver SEL Sedan on August 19. My dealer called today with a delivery date of October 17. But no VIN yet. She said to call her on Monday and she may be able to get me a VIN.

Regarding the Engine Cover - apparently this is a production change that has been made to the Titanium model (even though that this was a "feature") - rumour has it that the engine was getting too hot.
