Per Ford official communication, the HIDs are the cause of delay, not the Recaros.

By the way, Village Ford in Dearborn has a TS ST2 with sunroof and nav if you don't want to wait for the ST3. Drove by today - still on their lot.

I would love to see the official communication. Not to be a nay sayer but I searched the FORD website and found nothing indicating that the ST3 was even delayed much less what was the cause.

NOT CORRECT. The ST is manufactured the same place as the rest of the Foci for the U.S. and the CMax.... Michigan Assembly in Wayne.

I can't imagine Ford would actually put that on their website. There is plenty of information regarding the HID issue floating around on the web.

Ford posted information on their social media pages on Facebook at the time of the announcement. I doubt however that you'll get them to give you a copy of their dealer notices. You may however be able to find a scanned copy of the letter they sent to prospective owners informing them of their options to convert the cars to ST1/2s instead or wait for the ST3 because of the HID lamps.

Right. The Facebook page is the appropriate medium for this kind of notice. Also, the note Ford has sent out with the die-cast models for those who ordered the ST3 mentions the HIDs. Same about the call to those who ordered the ST3 (if you didn't get the letter - I didn't).
