Very happy for you. Although I found the process of waiting agonizing it was also very exciting at the same time.

No info on ETIS but that should be updated until after the car is built.

A couple of questions:

1) I've read the ETIS has a build date usually later than the window sticker. Which one is more accurate or correct? What's the difference between the two?

2) How do I find out the ETA of when it will be at the dealer? My dealer said I should have my car mid-Jan but after seeing my build date of Jan 4, I'm having doubts.
How did you view your window sticker?

**UPDATED** Never mind, I figured it out, but, thanks.

Haha, could you get mine checked too when the time comes? I used to live in Windsor, Ontario, so I've heard my share of assembly line stories.

I ordered Monday January 9th, no VIN yet.

*sighs* ETA 1/16/12 (TODAY). Contacted Ford Customer on Facebook last Friday, was told new ETA 1/19/12. Called Ford Customer Service today and was told a new ETA of 1/26/12.

It's built. All the information is up on Etis, and I was able to register through sync, yet my ETA seems to increase by the day. It's an extremely numbing feeling.

My window stickers says my car will be built tomorrow. This is the date code on the sticker. 120120117. Etis shows a build date of 13.01.2012 with no other info. I'm not sure if my car is built now or will be built.
