Picked up an Artic White,Titanium Hatchback about 3 weeks ago. Has the 401A package, the only things I am missing are:
  • moon roof
  • heated seats
  • park assist
  • rear camera
  • heated mirrors

I absolutely love it. This is the first real new car I have ever owned. I honestly think it is smarter than I am. The hard part is knowing there is so much about the Sync system that I don't know yet. I think I will be working on the voice commands for the next few months.

That sucks. My dealer was really paranoid about getting the options right, they confirmed it 3 times in writing with me (once via email, once in hard copy when I went in to order and again when they had the DORA).
Hopefully it will arrive quicker than estimated.

I was paranoid as well - know a little about how this CAN work:) Got everything in writing etc, confirmed verbally. But apparently there was a breakdown in communications inside dealership... Can't control that...

Host them on a site like imgur or photobucket. They you can link the URL to the Insert Image option in the reply.

Haven't done it myself to see how it works, but FAQ gives some instructions at http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/f...b3_attachments. I also see there is a Gallery link at the top of the Focus Fanatics pages that allows you to upload images. Not sure exactly how you manage those pictures or if doing that provides a URL you can insert from.

Just tried some things and seems like the FAQ answers don't match what I see. I see no Manage Attachments button after I click the Post Reply button. I also don't see any Pictures & Albums link in my User CP.

Perhaps Dr. Woo can provide more specifics, since he has posted pics before.

You do not have to use the forum to post your pictures. Make a free account with one of the multitude of free picture hosting sites. My personal favorite is www.imgur.com. Once you have created an account, browse to your pictures on your computer, upload them, then copy and paste the URL here on the website using the INSERT IMAGE button in the reply field. Just make sure to mark your uploaded pictures as private unless you want them to be in the public domain.

imgur ("Imager") is much simpler than most other image hosting sites and is very straightforward.

Here's their FAQ page.

Photobucket has help pages that detail the steps involved with uploading images and then linking to them from forums like these.

Uploading Images

Linking Images (Utilize the instructions next to "IMG Code")
