As soon as the VIN is entered into the system your sales rep can give it to you. Until then you wait.

Can you check the system yourself, or customer service maybe? Or am I just at the mercy of my sales rep.

Congratulations!!
My build date is tomorrow, so hopefully next Monday or Tuesday ETIS will be updated and syncmyride will be happy with my VIN....
This has been painful at times........

^Congrats to you both kburton and fla! Hope you both get your Foci soon!
Got a call from the dealer today, and completely_focused you were correct in us having to re-order. Tis a bit disappointing but it's actually a blessing in disguise. Thanks to some of the other members here I got the opportunity to see the Sonic Blue and it should be available. So I asked to see if I could get the new order in that color and it's a go. I also took the opportunity to add the 203A package. Plus they looked over the old order and noticed that they (the dealership) had flubbed up and not added the Sport package, so they are deducting the cost for it from the new order. So I get that package for free. To top it all off they are keeping whatever discounts I was getting with the first order (mil. discount, $500 Ford cash, $250 deposit). With those on there it should come back down to being about the same price as the first order.

You're just about there Fla2smoker, on Monday syncmyride should give you the A-OK. On Tues your ETIS build date should update. The rest of my ETIS never populated (as I suspected it would on Wed) but according to Natasha, mine in in transit so I guess don't worry if ETIS doesn't fully update.

You're painstakingly close now man!!!!!!!

What's everyone's estimated time to get your vin? I placed my order two weeks ago today, so I'm curious.

Thanks!

My build was Friday (29th), ETIS updated with a build date of Aug 1, yesterday. In addition sync my ride is registered as of yesterday with my vin. My car is in transit as of Tuesday, however, my ETIS is not fully populated still.
