Answer: Limbo lasted 2 days, ended Friday 11/2; then loaded on the truck in Wayne, MI, Wednesday 11/7, **ARRIVED TODAY!!** 11/8 in Arlington Heights, IL. Finally!!

I love it, love it, love it! It's goes quick, stops great, handles great! It's quick enough to put my perfect driving record at risk.

I took photos of my ST3 about an hour after it was unloaded from the truck with all of the stickers on the inside glass and plastic on the seats etc. I'll post photos on Saturday with both before and after cleanup. I told the dealer not to wash the car. I took it to my local Delta Sonic car wash and had them use my microfiber towels to dry and then had them clay bar it and wax. The clay bar removed a lot of stuff stuck to the paint and now it feels really smooth and looks fantastic.

I retained all stickers/papers that came from the factory including the one that stated that my car was chosen at "random" for a factory road test for quality control and driven for 21 miles.

Woo hoo! I'm so happy to hear that your ST finally arrived. Be sure to post plenty of pics so we can all drool over it.

Hopefully you won't need my services any time soon, but remember that I'm always just a PM away.

Now go out there and enjoy your ride!
Crystal

Thanks! I'm still working on the winter wheel/tire situation. I'd like to stick with true Ford wheels so I don't have to worry about hub rings.

Thanks Crystal for all your assistance through my 8-year-oldness (being as impatient as a child)! My next post will have photos right after being unloaded from the truck.

My New ST3!

Fresh off the truck.

















I didn't think to photograph all of the other screens in the display. I was a distracted photographer!

More to come of the "before delivery".

The build sheet.





The loose items: Center caps, Antenna, Screws, Manual, FOBs, etc.



In the future, there will be something to see here.



I wonder what that bottom sticker means?



My car's ETA was supposed to be 10/31. Notice the 01NOV2012 Shipped date on the Recaro.



Notice the origin of the transmission. It is a Getrag, and it shifts very nicely.



That "third light" on the left is the cornering lamp that is speed sensitive and comes on when at low speed and turning the steering wheel, or when the turn signal is active as shown in the photo. The middle light is the high beam.

All cleaned up. I'll post more of the "after" photos on the "Post Your MK3 ST Photos!" page since this thread has more to do with ordering and such.

The white looks good! I went with blue but I was torn between the blue and white

My ST is sitting 40 miles away from my dealer waiting for a full carrier(Truck). It might be at the dealer by Friday, total BS

Hi Flybigrc,

I'd be happy to check on the status of your ST for you. Just send me a PM with your VIN or dealer name/order number and I'll fill you in on all the details.

Crystal

Congrats on taking delivery! I've been in love with mine since she came. Still haven't received my GoPro though
