My dealer is Tom Holzer also - I live only about 3 miles away. But mine is an ordered car, being built at the end of April. I might have to go over to look at some of the cars they got in.

Glad to hear you have a build date. Unfortunately since I never received one, I wonder if this is truly the car I ordered. If you were thinking of checking out the cars on the lot, you may want to swing by bill brown. They have about 10 of them. I think I've went to look at them 3 times already!

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.
I think if you change your VIN to: 1FAHP3K27CL134771, you will be able to look up your window sticker and ETIS information.

Sometimes they will enter the enter an identical car in Stock, and see which comes in first. You can check the inventory at thinkfordfirst.com, and see if there is a car listed identical to yours.

I've already look at some down in Taylor and Wayne, but being able to just go a couple miles is handy.

Agreed. The VIN you originally listed is too long, and the 0 was non-sensical in there.

My window sticker hasn't showed up yet either but was just issued this past Thur. I'll keep checking in the next week.

Got my VIN and Build Date!

I pre-ordered on 2/28 and just got my VIN and build date on Friday.

VIN #: 1FAHP3N25CL145506

Candy Red Titanium Hatch - everything but the Parking Package (including MFT). I figured if I can't park a Focus, I should be allowed to drive!

I am out in CA, so I expect a 2-3 week delivery time from there...can't wait!

I ordered an SE Sport a couple of days before Christmas, changed it to a Titanium on 1/7, then added the handling package on 2/4. I think the dealer canceled the first order and reordered when I made the change to a different model, hopefully didn't cancel and reorder again when I made the addition, but no VIN or build date so far.

Any idea how long it takes for the stickers to show up? I got my VIN on Friday from the dealer, and the sticker doesn't work yet (nor does ETIS).
