Nope - not the case for the Candy Red Metallic as that's what I ordered last month and picked up this week (but you're right about the Tuxedo Black coming back online).

Mine is on a "material hold", probably for the metallic flakes used in the Tuxedo Black. It's made in Japan, and they are just ramping up production next week.

It could be the reason...I think they use the same metallic flakes in the Candy Red Metallic...don't quote me...but I think they are linked.

You must not have a great relationship with your dealer then. My advice, call call call! My dealer and I hit it off right away, he just wasn't looking for a sale, but actually looked out for me as well. He updates me on where my car is when he finds out (although my Dad works for Ford and can give me up-to-dates quicker haha).

If you don't have a DORA after a month I'd be walking. Go submit your order with someone else, your dealership is probably smaller and over their allotted amount of orders. Until you get a DORA, ford doesn't even know you exist and all your waiting is for nothing. Waiting a month for a VIN can be "normal" but if you don't have a DORA it's because your order hasn't been placed, or hasn't been accepted, so you'll never have a VIN



My update this morning, still waiting, apparently it's in the city with the truck co, 12 weeks since order. Posted via FF Mobile

Thanks for your opinions and suggestions, I probably really don't do well with dealers. My family has purchased cars at this dealership for years. So I took this to Natasha and in one day she gave me the vin# and says my car is built already. Great news!! No eta yet but coming home. I'll pm her next week for more info.

I picked up my car this afternoon. 172km on it. Found a sticker in the glove box that certifys 152 of them. The rest would be my dealer gasing it up and my friend taking it for a spin. I got 241 on it so far and it drives well. No tranny shutter, took it outside the city and DID NOT go up to 190km/h.... Wink wink.

Couple blemishes on the paint, when I was doing my walk around I found a wash cloth in the engine bay... Dangerous. Good thing I found it before I went too far. It's overcast today so I just snapped some cellphone pics for facebook, I'll wait for a brighter day to get you guys some higher quality ones.

Total 12 weeks from order to delivery!

Finally! Congratulations, especially with that wait. Looking forward to hearing more as you get more time with it.

Just call the dealer and our salesman said we have a delivery date the week of Oct 31st. Have a VIN but no build date or window sticker yet.
