Nope, mine's coming from the good 'ol US of A. I'm in the Army, so It's US spec for me, might have see about fitting EDM headlights though!

I find it fascinating that the sequence in your VIN is so close to mine, yet you ordered 2 weeks earlier. Maybe it has something to do with the trim or body style? Do you think that maybe the dealer held onto the order before placing it, maybe either due to no April allocation left, or possibly even absentmindedness. I actually placed the order with my dealer on Thursday, April 28, but they wanted to wait to put in until Monday, 05/02 because they said it had something to do with my private rebate. I didn't believe it and thought it was actually because they were out of April allocation for ordering Focii, and didn't want to risk losing the sale by telling me that.

In any case, I bet you see your sticker by tomorrow or the next day. I thought they only updated sometime overnight. I checked late last night and at first got this weird short page of source code, and after refreshing got the no VIN found message. I thought that was weird, and assumed they were in the middle of updating. Then this morning I checked and initially got a long page of source code, and refreshed again, and the sticker showed. Weird again. Anyway, good luck to you.

Wow! So ya, your Focus has a much long way to travel! It may be one of the longer waits, but its true, you may have the first crack at getting those EDM headlights on a US spec 2012.

I know I speak for all of us when I say "thank you for doing what you do."

Stay safe,

Yeah that's what I figure he meant, hopefully I'll get that VIN# soon as well.

I agree...seems weird. I actually misread...I signed the buyer's order on 4/21, and my salesperson told me he put the order in that same day. He also mentioned he had an allocation coming up the next week. Although, because it took 3 weeks to get my VIN, perhaps the order just sat dormant until 5/2 (same day your order went in) because they didn't have an allocation the week of 4/25 after all.

Mine's a Titanium in Ingot Silver with 401a, Winter, Parking Tech, Moonroof, and Navigation, so it's very similar to yours save the color and Sport package. I dunno. Hopefully it'll be built in the next week or two.

My original one expires 6/3, and now it's looking like my car won't arrive before then. I did get a new $750 cash offer via e-mail at my work address that's good through 7/16, so as long as I get it before then, I'm happy.

Can anyone spot the VIN's on these hatches?



Mine rolls off the line today. Does anyone know how long it takes to assemble the vehicle start to finish at the Wayne plant?

Nice! I did the same thing. Just gotta hope the car comes in before I run out of addresses!

No, but now I know who to blame if my weather stripping fails.

From what I have read on here they pump out 500 per day per shift with two shifts per day. That's 1000 units a day.
