I think MGBox is a little paranoid about his car.

If the sticker disappeared that means the car was damaged during production and needs to be rescheduled!!!!!!

My biggest stress point in all this is that I'm giving my current car to a family member who has been patiently waiting for it since June as that's when I first thought my originally ordered Focus would come in. After the fiasco this has been I called my dealership's manager the other day and said I couldn't wait any longer to give my car to my family member and I wanted a free loaner till the Focus comes in. Well, to his credit, he apologized for everything and said yes, they'd be happy to give me a free loaner. So, they're making a good faith attempt which I appreciated.
why does your order date say Aug 1...that isn't 17 weeks.

Makes no sense at all yet.
And I ordered on July 5th - called dealer today - still no build date! Very frustrating as I already sold my other car to my daughter.

Today's my first full day of driving and all I can say is the car is pretty damn sweet. I love it so far, the sync is a little tricky at first but you'll get use to it in no time. Pretty cool we're all getting our vehicles at the same time. I know it was a pretty difficult 10 weeks for me but I got exactly what I wanted and I really like the new ebony black with the matching black rims.

Justy,

Seventeen weeks because I first ordered a car on 05-May in Kona Blue; got told a month later they don't make it anymore and ordered one in Sterling Gray; I FINALLY got the window sticker on that on 30-July and somehow my dealer had messed up reordering it and the car was Sonic Blue. So they placed ANOTHER order on 01-Aug for the Sterling Gray and that's the window sticker that showed up this morning.

When you press the quote button, start typing after the big paragraph instead of at the top.
