Ill buy the performance numbers but the MPG, I would need to see proof that you really get anything remotely over 30....

5.0 Mustang against either the 68 or 04 eh!

I actually like Mustangs just think the 90s looked better than the current models.

ST3 arrived at the dealership today. My dad and I went over tonight to check it out and let me tell you the thing is just amazing. Bringing it home on thursday so I'll have another update then. Here's a couple pics of the Recaros and the HIDs.

I ordered in July and still have no VIN# or build date. Lots of people are having this problem. It seems as though Ford is not building in the order that they received orders. Anyone else on here order 3 months or more and still without a freakin clue?

Which package did you order? Has Ford called you or have you called them? I cant imagine they would have a VIN# to give you if they haven't even set a build date yet. I believe my dad received a call from Ford a day or two before his build date and they told him to ad about another week for them to ship it.

They seem to be coming in waves....well, one wave. Suddenly most of the dealerships in the metroplex had one or two STs, and now their stocks are dwindling and none have come in in quite a while. Have they, or did they stop production for a period of time? The dealerships aren't even showing any 'in transit' like they were before.

The vin exists long before the car is to actually be assembled, i.e. when the order is accepted by ford and preliminarily scheduled to be built is when the Vin is generated. I had my vin for over a month before I got my MK3, even though it took two weeks from the time I started the order for it to get picked up into the order bank. Mine's an SEL though as I wanted a particular color and needed a new car at the time as my old one was on its last legs and about to rust out. Had I waited for the 2013s I'd have had to order an ST as they screwed up the options so badly on the standard car.

Ok, so my build date should have been yesterday and I checked with the dealer, Ford Performance, and Crystal, and there is no info on whether it was actually built yet. I'm in limbo.

Question: How long does limbo last?

Just a couple days. I used the ETIS site to keep track. Once it's built it will put the actual date in there.
