I have a 2012 Focus S strippo. Oxford White, 5-speed. NO extra options. :) This car is a decent daily driver and should save me some gas compared to my 2012 Mustang GT which eats gas. My complaint is the front end supension though. The upper mounts are already noisy at 500 miles. I would suspect another TSB soon. I would like to have a set of Koni's when they get available. I have them on a 2002 SVT Focus. Had a 2000 Lightning as well. Been around the block.....

I ordered mine on 23 April.

VIN came today.

I am looking forward to delivery beating the eight week estimate that I was given.

You seem to not understand..... "post when you have a VIN"

We are all parents waiting for "our babies"............

If you have a squeak, get it fixed, you have a warranty........

Etis says 12.5.2012 so it was indeed made on Saturday. They must be working weekends, maybe they have an increase in orders since its right before the 2013s come out.

The sequence goes like this:

1. You place the order

2. You are assigned a VIN (could be a few days after order but it could be a few weeks or more)

3. A build date will be assigned and your window sticker will be created (could be a few days or weeks after VIN assigned)

4. Your car is built (could be a few days or weeks after window sticker)

5. ETIS will update to display the details of your build (a few days to maybe a week after build)

6. Your car is shipped to the dealer (a few days or weeks after build)

7. You pick it up (a day or more)

Total time could be as short a 4 weeks or even less to over 12 weeks with the average being about 7-8. However, you may get a quicker order-to-ship this time of year as they hurry to build 2012's before they start the 2013.

So, I'd check to see if you have a window sticker first -- click on the link below then at the end of the URL enter your VIN# without any spaces.

http://services.forddirect.fordvehic...icker.pdf?vin=


If they haven't scheduled the build you won't see anything, but if they have you will get a window sticker and at the top center you will see the build date coded with a 1 followed by the 4 digit year, then 2 digits for the month, then 2 digits for the day.
