Hey I've got a tip for those who ordered their Focus with either Sync or MFT, when you get the VIN from your dealer go to the SyncMyRide web site and register your VIN, it will let you set your car's features, make sure that you have them correct as to what you have ordered.

When you refresh the site you'll get a message stating something to the effect that the vehicle you registered cannot be verified that it has a sync unit installed. The website will give you the option of verifiying the install ignore the message.

When your car is built and the Sync/MFT is activated at the factory your Focus SyncMyRide page will be updated with all you Sync version info.

My mess has been all sorted it. I'm going into the dealership tomorrow morning to check out my ride, then on tuesday I'm going to pick it up at noon. For some reason I had to make an appointment. The sales guy said something about 30 cars getting moved out ahead of me so his weekend was booked with appointments.

My insurance slip is ready to go and I can get it at anytime up the road from the dealership. Finally this looks like it may be happening.

Nice. Glad it all worked out. You earned it with the wait. Hope you enjoy the hell out of it and look forward to hearing your feedback when you do get it.

I tried to sneak a peak at it yesterday but they must have had it in the back. All they had were two sonic blues and a red. Will you come show it off for me? I got another 1.5-2 weeks wait for mine.

Ordered July 18th, ETA Oct 4th. 11 weeks and 1 day.

Did you mean to say "see your car's features" or "set your car's features"?

If you meant "see" where exactly can you see them? I can only see basic stuff pertaining to service, sync, etc. Not build info.

Thanks

I meant set you car's features, you know like whether or not you have MFT or just regular Sync. Once your car is built the MFT/Sync version will appear on the website. No specific car build info is there but at least you know the Sync unit registered to you VIN has been activated.

Another quick question, How long does it take for the ETIS website to get updated after your car is built?

TIA

I have seen the build date update from the generic date, so that is awesome!

In about 2 days from now you'll see all your details.
