If that's what you want I would call them first thing Monday. I'm pretty sure they can change it, but the question is will it affect your build date. Then again I think I would gladly wait another week or two if I knew I was getting what I wanted - Better than regreting it later on.

IMHO the leather seats in the focus are much nicer than the cloth, especially with that contrast stitching and soft texture. But I know it's a preference thing, I can just never have cloth ever again in my life.

If you have changed your mind, definitely as already said, call your dealer right away and ask to change your order. No matter what your dealer said, though, you're probably going to get the Mustang black instead of the tuxedo black. But in the off chance you were getting tuxedo black, know that changing your order will almost definitely mean you will need to pick a different color. That is, unless you want to wait. I hope I'm wrong, however.

Hey guys,

Yeah it was exactly four days after my build date was posted when all the details were updated on Etis. My fourth day was a Saturday too, so it doesn't look like it has to be business days either. You'll love it when the details post. It's like Christmas!

Pat Milliken Ford called me this morning and my car is enroute. It was built Friday and they may have it preped and ready for delivery today. Moving back to the Detroit area finally has some perks besides coneys.

Our Titanium Hatch was built Wednesday 5/18, showed up on ETIS Sunday, dealer called today to say its ETA in Florida was 6/3. Anxiously awaiting its arrival...

This car was built the same day another Titanium that had been ordered a couple weeks earlier - looks like Ford lumped all of them into a single day.

Mine was scheduled to be built Thursday (day after yours), but it does not show in ETIS yet. Was yours built on the day it was scheduled to be built?

Yes, the dealer had originally said it would be built the week of the 16th, and after I got the VIN from him and downloaded the sticker, I saw it was scheduled for the 18th. On the 20th the dealer called and said it had been built on Wednesday.

You'll probably see it in ETIS soon - good luck!

I posted an almost identical reply a couple of months ago. Your welcome, and now just pay it forward!
