Sweet! How was your experience with the MFT?

It was fine. I got to play play around with it for 10-15 and no problems. I am still glad I ordered it. I was really impressed with the fit and finish and overall quality of the car.

I think the MFT is going to be an ongoing learning experience. I know it will take me some time to learn everything on it.

My dealer just got a SFE Sedan in, to their surprise and I was the first to test drive it. Even though it's much different than the car I ordered, it is still very nice. The interior, the ride, everything was just what I was expecting when I preordered. I need mine already! :)

note how they tried to hide it amongst the Fiestas! they said they didn't want anybody driving it yet for some reason, maybe that's why.

Focus has arrived......i think?

I ordered my 2012 se hatch on 2/20/11. I've been in contact with my dealer regularly since, and so far no info whatsoever. Yesterday, out of the blue, my salesman calls and informs me that i don't need to worry about waiting for the VIN anymore. He said their dealer has 6 stock orders on the lot, and 50 preorders in process. I was toward the bottom of the list, but for some reason mine was delivered yesterday before every other order ahead of me. He seemed suprised, as was I! I worked yesterday so was unable to head up to the dealer unfortunately. He did provide me with a VIN (1FAH03K27CL134771), but so far I can't track it anywhere. Does this whole situation seem strange to anyone? I'm heading up there tomorrow to see if it's legit.

Did you order at Tom Holzer? They had 6 of them show up on saturday morning out of the blue. I was also told that they sold three last week alone and those were not ordered cars. I am so glad I order mine. The VIN could have some numbers switched because mine shows up in ETIS still but no window sticker.

Actually I did order from Tom Holzer. He told me about the 6 stock orders also. I'm just surprised I couldn't get any info whatsoever, then it just shows up! I tried etis also, but the vin was invalid. I'll post whatever I can find out tomorrow. Good luck with your order!
