Wink My turn ...

After pestering my dealer again today, I finally got the VIN!! I like the dealership / laid back salesman (even though they are an hour away) so patience has been excercised in my "need to know" all the pre-delivery facts ... especially since they are not requiring a down payment.
The order was placed 7.01.2011, build date of 7.28 and with a delivery date scheduled for 8.15.2011. The plan right now is to take delivery myself sometime in the first week of September. That will work best for the budget and hopefully accomodate any late arrival of my car.
2012 FF Titanium 5-door
Rapid spec 400A
Yellow Blaze
Winter Package

That is great news! I am hoping mine fully populates tomorrow. It is still only showing build (completion) date. Now we just have to wait for the in transit notification and the delivered call from the dealer!

Sweet ... I just ventured into Etis land myself. It appears that only the build date is populated. I too am anxiously awaiting the in-transit notification!

Just discovered this thread...typed in my VIN and BAM, there was my window sticker. Loving it!

Quick question though....
I have an SE Hatchback (currently scheduled to be in on the 15th), that has the SE Sport Package, but the window sticker doesn't mention things like rear disc brakes or the Two-Tone Sport seats. Under vehicle description at the top of the window sticker it says "Charcoal Black Cloth Seats" instead. However, when I build a car on Ford.com with the SE Sport Package, and then select the "Charcoal Black Seat" option, it removes the Sport Package automatically.

My assumption is that I am still getting the Two-Tone seats (like I want), but can anyone else with an SE Sport Package confirm whether their window sticker says the same?

You cannot get the charcoal black seats with the sports package. If you confirmed the removal of the sports package then you won't see it on your window sticker because you didn't order it.

No, no, I WANT and ORDERED the Sport Package, and it DOES appear on my window sticker, the window sticker just doesn't mention the Two-Tone seats, it simply says Charcoal Black Cloth Seats at the top under "Vehicle Description". However, the SE Sport Package is also listed under my Optional Equipment.

Not sure why the discrepancy exists on the window sticker, because when I built a car on Ford.com and tried to switch back to the Charcoal Black seats, it automatically removed the SE Sport Package. I was trying to see if the dealer screwed up and listed Charcoal Black on the order instead of the Two-Tone, but it doesn't seem like that is capable if you select the SE Sport Package.

So now I'm just trying to confirm with others who have the SE Sport Package if their window sticker also says "Charcoal Black Cloth Seats", but they did in fact end up with the correct Two-Tone.
