Yeah, it's been a blast, I keep finding excuses to drive places. Coincidentally I saw another 2012 White Sedan today on Goodman St. too, I wanted to high-five the guy or something for having such good taste.

Thanks; yeah, me and Hillbilly hit the perfect storm of obstructions; however, perseverence pays off. I'll post when it actually IS at the dealer.

Hey can anyone confirm that ETIS is down for the moment. The site loads but the search of my VIN now returns an error suggesting the database system may be down. I'm tethering from my phone at work so it's remotely possible it could be an issue related to that, but just wanted to confirm.

I still have one more hurdle to clear. I'm dropping it off at the dealer tomorrow so they can fix that small dent in the fender that it picked up during shipping.

Okay this pisses me off. According to this dealers online inventory, they have a car IN STOCK. That was built the SAME day as mine according to windowsticker.

http://services.forddirect.fordvehic...HP3N20CL223173
This car above, was built 8/23, window sticker generated 8/16.

My car sticker is here: http://services.forddirect.fordvehic...HP3N21CL222937

The cars are rather similar. 400 vs 401, 17s vs 18s, and of course color.

I'm on the phone now trying to verify this car is indeed "in stock".

Natasha got back to me and was able to get me my VIN today, hooray! What's even better is that the car was built last week and the date the dealer gave me of 9/19 looks to be current at the moment, although it depends on how the transit goes.

Doesn't appear to be in stock but he's got 3 coming. A white (presumably alexs) a candy red and a sonic blue.
I've asked him if they're sold/customer orders and he keeps telling me no..., trying to get one "reserved" for me now, he's really trying to hard sell me on one. I wouldn't mind the blue one :P

Friday the 9th is certainly much better than 18th-25th. That's 5 titaniums coming to winnipeg now. let alone whatever other cars and trucks they have. They need to get that shit on a train asap!
