First post, ordered a Focus not too long ago, I figured I would just lurk until I got a VIN.



5spd Tuxedo Black SE with sport package and absolutely nothing else.

How are people finding build dates?

Your dealer, Ford Customer Service, or your window sticker:

http://services.forddirect.fordvehic...HP3K20CL378116

In your case it appears to be March 19. You will see the series of numbers at the top of the sticker, left of center: 120120319

Hey frinesi2,

No need to lurk; your fellow posters and I are here to help. Send me a PM with the VIN and I'll be more than happy to provide an ETA.

BTW - It's recommended not to post personal information publicly.

Specs:
SEL RS300A Hatchback
Exterior: Sterling Gray Metallic
Interior: Medium Light Stone Cloth
Winter Package

Ordered: 2/29/12
VIN received: 3/15/12
Build Date: 3/19/12
Delivery to Dealer: 3/26/12

I'm looking forward to the upgrade! So much more tech than I have now. Looks about 100x better and feels like its worth more than my Taurus stickered for. I've managed to get 31.1 mpg vs. EPA estimated 27 mpg highway / revised 25 mpg highway. Can't wait to see what I can eek out of a 38 mpg Focus! :)

^ If yours is anything like mine, your build date should be about 19 days after the order date, or around the week of 3/26. :)
