Yeah I was hoping to avoid going to Blue Oval, nothing against them, but the rules state you need 10 posts to request a track and at this point I honestly don't have anything to say other than what I've typed here to reach that.

Here's the timeline for my Ingot Silver Titanium 5-door with 401A, Winter Package, Parking Tech., Navigation, and Moonroof:

Ordered 4/21 (buyer's order and dealer order entry)
Received VIN on 5/9
Sticker displayed on 5/21
Build date of 6/1

Yeah, I mean build date or build week. Not sure how long after build date it gets to dealer. Few weeks I guess.

Based on prior posts I've read it updates about four days after the build date. Not sure if it is four days or four work days. My Titanium went through the line today so I'm going to check Etis Tuesday through Thursday of next week to see if it's been updated.

Window sticker is issued 7 days before the build date and will be viewable within 24 hours of being issued. My build week was 5/16 but my actual build date was Saturday, 21 May. I was expecting my window sticker to show up during the work week of 5/9 but when it didn't show up by Friday of that week I thought my build week had changed. At about 9:00 am on Saturday, 14 May my Window Sticker appeared exactly 7 days before the build; and based on all the other builds I've seen posted here their window stickers were issued 7 days before the build.

Hey, congrats, I knew it would show up soon.

On another note, it looks your sticker has shown up 11 days before the build, and that's kind of new around here, I think. I wonder if they're getting better at scheduling the builds and if this is the new norm?

Question..I have my Vin and no window sticker. Is it possible to have my dealer change my order? I ordered an SEL and I'm sure I will be happy with it, but, I just realized it is not much more for the titanium and I like the cloth sport seats better. I'm thinking I want to change the order. Is this possible?

I just noticed that - it's the first window sticker I've seen printed more than 7 days in advance. It must have something to do with them clearing out the backlog and having more time to schedule future inventory for the build.
