Put your VIN after the equal sign. The build date is in the bottom middle below the barcode and will look something like this "BH161 N REC2X 230 000999 08 16 2011"
The last three numbers are the date, in my case 08 16 2011 or August 16th, 2011.


Also welcome to the white titanium club. Seems to be a popular choice, though I realize it wasn't your first. Shame your dealer didn't inform you they had no more allocation, I would be livid.
That didn't work for some reason, but I found it on the window sticker. It was built on July 20th.

Go Jets!

jumped the gun on that one, its taking longer than initial estimates for the remote start install.

I kinda figure that when we talked about pickup time, had 4 call during the day last one came 30 minutes before I was to pick it up. even told the wife when I got home we had about a 50/50 shot at getting it, then the phone range before answering it I said here is the tomorrow call.

Hopefully they get it together today, i now need to take a half day off work to do the pickup.

She assured me it wasn't an option. Even the brochure I have only lists the standard 17", painted 17" or 18"

FINALLY!!! it all makes sense now! MGBox...the VIN you gave me...I checked it and it said the build date was today (08.23.2011) and you always said it was weird that you got your window sticker on the same day it said the build day was (you said it was the 16th which is the date in the UPC code)....well that's because you were reading the sticker wrong! Your build day was always today.

Well that's super. So I guess last tuesday when they said it was preparing to go into production it was technically true, the sticker appeared that night. But friday the car was "in production as we speak", odd, guess they were humoring me.

Can't wait to hear what they have to say today, and to get my new ETA cause there's no way mine will hold true anymore if the car hasn't been built yet.

Happy tuesday! :)

In production covers the whole time from which a window sticker was generated to when it rolls off of the line (at least that is what Ford told me). The good news is once it goes "in production" there should not be any snags or anything (should not be, Murphy's law and all) as the parts are allocated to your car and it is completely buildable.

Mine took two days to build. You should be close now. Best of luck!
