Copernicium,
I requested the brochure I received today, two weeks ago. Last week I ordered one in my wife's name....
Thanks for the updated information. I will "refrain" from entering my phone number until I have the keys in hand....
I guess we need to find out (possibly from Hillbilly?) who to contact to get rail information as FCS is only able to tell us that the vehicle has been built and is no longer in the system....
Looking forward to the updates this next week!!
I have been sitting here wondering how far along in the build process my car got yesterday. I wonder if it is sitting up in the air waiting for drivetrain components or is it in line for QA, or if it is still in hundreds of parts throughout the facility.....

I doubt they would withhold the VIN, but they might not check as often and as diligently as I would, seeing as how it's MY car.

As far as I know it was accepted, the lingo is a bit confusing. My credit check was accepted the same day. and I have a copy of my "offer to purchase" sheet as well as my "vehicle order confirmation" sheet.

MGbox,
I am lazy and have not searched all of your posts regarding this but have you called Ford Customer Service recently? Have you PM'd FordCustomerService (Natasha) on this forum? I would call daily and email Natasha weekly to see if they can dig up your VIN....

Thanks for the info, hopefully my brochure arrives and has the cash offer before I pick the car up. According to Natasha, mine started Fri and was done Mon. I'm guessing QA, etc. and you should be the same. Doubt it's pieces. Then again, I'm not there so I could be talking out my a$$.

Nice Vader post in the MFT wallpaper thread. Totally going to rip that off and add it to the collection if you don't mind (I personally love the BSOD but I don't think my wife or son would appreciate it as much as me). My son would get a big kick out of Vader though. 11 year old boy loves Star Wars, go figure. Let you know my rail time when I know. You are a little bit farther than me but you are also in a more populated area so who knows?

No I haven't. I asked about that and everyone seemed to say just get it from your dealer. Didn't know what kind of info I would need to get a VIN# from FCS. Or if they would release that to me.

They are there for the taking!! I have three boys 12, 9, and 4... They have already named my car Darth Vader (Not sure if there is a secret message there for me or not) based on pictures from the internet....

How are you getting the rail info?
PM me if necessary.

A little late to the party for the BSOD since 2.11 has come out but I thought Rusty could use it before driving the car through the front window of the dealership.

well I order a SEL with 302A package on june 21st and still no Vin yet. from what i have read in this forum, I think Ford is only producing Titaniums right now as those who order their Titanium way behind me already received their build dates. Hopefully the SELs will be next in line. JMO

All you will need is your order number and the dealer number that is on your order confirmation.
They will tell you everything there is to know about where your car is in the build process.....
