Also thanks to this site, I requested a brochure from Ford, got the $750 Private Cash coupon, and the dealer agreed to apply it to my purchase. Not too shabby!

Many thanks to all here - a great resource.

Yes, thanks to this site I found that I have access to X plan, and the 750 private cash. Almost 2 grand right there.

My salesman just e-mailed me back he said

It is on the manufacturing schedule to be built on 5/30. No VIN yet.

Is that even possible he knows that information with no VIN? lol

these babies are coming out quick then, I placed mine on the 11th and my salesman tells me it's on schedule for building on 5/30, but he said he has no VIN# yet so I don't know if he's BSing.

Maybe he's just guessing at the build week, based on when the order was submitted?

If you ordered the 11th, that sounds about right, sometime during the week of 05/30. He won't know the exact date until 7 days out like the rest of us, I think. I could be wrong, though. They seem to be moving pretty quickly. I bet it only takes 6 weeks from order to delivery.

I would have thought he'd have the VIN by now, though. Maybe another day or two....

Arrgh...our VIN's are 17 apart (...166425), and I have a VIN but still no window sticker or build date...and I ordered on 4/17. Maybe tomorrow.

Does anyone know how frequently the window sticker database is updated? Once per day or perpetually?
