My build date was Monday 8/22 my ETIS was populated complete on Friday 8/26. Now to see if the ETA of 9/5 will be the actual day. I know alot of the new ones don't have the engine cover but mine says it's there on my ETIS page we shall see if it comes in or not. If it doesn't I will ask for it since it says it was included.

My Focus was build date 6 30-2011.
I bought it 8 26
vin 1FAHP3K25CL18'xxxx' (am I too paranoid? xxxing out the motor last four?)
I was thinking about a replacement for my badly aged 1999 contour SVT i bought in 1998 (made in Sept 1998)
I wanted a set of very specific items. Had to have: Manual transmission, yellow color, 17"wheels, sunroof. So i built it and then sent that build to a few dealers by fudging my own zip code.

I went to a dealer and they naturally did not have one anywhere near my wanted car. However they found one within 75 miles.
After a few hours i just had to leave (nice saleman, but too much haggling about stuff.
But I did grab the window sticker he printed out.

So I searched online for the car. Found it 60 mi away in some little farm town
2012 SE Yellow Blaze, manual transmission, 17" wheels, sunroof....(ADDED: The Ford ETIS site (and a site parts fella) says my car DOES HAVE the midlevel 'touring suspension' rather than the base suspension, and i have the moving radiator blinds. Great)
Great. So I onlined them, chatted, and drove there.
In a few hours i drove my new Focus home. Zero down, 48mo 3.9% zero$ at signing. (I guess my credit is OK.)

(They offered me peanuts for my beat up green SVT, so I asked to just leave it there temporarily until I could come back to grab it) Now a mechanic there is interested in it. (great motor, tranny with a ltd slip diff), just lots of little stuff wrong, perfect for a Ford mech!)

So I did not have to get one on order, i lucked out and found one wiith all my stuff ready built. As soon as I found it I knew I had to go grab it, or it might fly away.

The only flaw is opening the rear widows at over 40mph creates a HUGE thudding wind buffeting low pitched rumble, like nothing I have EVER heard.
I laughed as i will be certain to give some passengers a treat to insane wierd noise now and then...

That makes more sense... the actual assembly should be knocked out in a day quite easily.
