I just got the call. My focus has just been unloaded at the dealer! I will be giving it the inspection after work tonight.

I ordered mine on 23 April.

VIN came on 14 May.

Printed the sticker on 15 May.

It was built week of 14 May.

Arrived at the Dealer 24 May.

I am psyched about this now.

Congratulations, I am happy for you. I ordered mine 2 months before you, my car was built the week before yours, I'm one state over (WI), and my ETA has just been pushed out to first week in June? I have to quit visiting this thread! LOL

ETIS build date May 23. Can't wait to get it

Congratulations, maybe you can have it to drive for the weekend and the weather stay nice!! I told my wife I am sending ours back!!! We have had it 10 days now and it started raining 2 days before arriving at the dealership and has rained at least sometime every day since then!!! The first 300 miles was in driving rain and wind, oh well, no leaks and the wipers work well!! A picece of advice, really vary the driving style and if you got the DCT, remember it is a manual and you will be fine. We now are approaching 850 miles and it is much smoother than at delivery and it wasn't bad then.

Picked up my new Focus today. I have already put 86 miles on it. Can't wait to see it in the light.

I am stoked!

Ha, got you beat!


I drive back from a business trip in Boise thinking I probably won't get my car until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week but one hour after getting home I call then and sure enough they had the car. So I go to the bank to get a bank check for an additional deposit (cash down) and when I get home there's a voice mail asking me if I could come by tonight to pick it up. I get there at 6PM and by 7PM I'm driving off in my new Ti HB.

So I take it on a 3 hour shake-down ride and so far I'm very pleased. When I picked the car up the dealer forewarned me that my car had been selected for a test drive at the factory and had almost 60 miles on it. By the end of my shank-down ride the car has over 220 miles on it and is getting over 34mpg according to the display.

I'm going to get the car tinted first thing tomorrow then I'll have a few days of riding around the SLC area before I have to return to Boise next week.

I will be driving to Boise. I'll be working in Boise for just under two weeks then I'm taking a week off to do a little driving tour of southern Utah. I figure to have close to 4000 miles on the car within 3 weeks!

I'll post a few pictures in a bit...

That's really alone! Was it taken in a sandstorm/whiteout?

I see nothing...
