I get there at 6PM and by 7PM I'm driving off in my new Ti HB.

So I take it on a 3 hour shake-down ride and so far I'm very pleased. When I picked the car up the dealer forewarned me that my car had been selected for a test drive at the factory and had almost 60 miles on it. By the end of my shank-down ride the car has over 220 miles on it and is getting over 34mpg according to the display.

I'm going to get the car tinted first thing tomorrow then I'll have a few days of riding around the SLC area before I have to return to Boise next week.

I will be driving to Boise. I'll be working in Boise for just under two weeks then I'm taking a week off to do a little driving tour of southern Utah. I figure to have close to 4000 miles on the car within 3 weeks!

I'll post a few pictures in a bit...

I told myself to quit looking at this thread? Our cars were built the same day I believe (5-7) and yours was chosen for a factory test ride and you are over a 1000 miles further for delivery than mine, yet I still do not have my car? I am beginning to wonder what happened to mine? I am beginning to think it is in a shop somewhere getting a fender repainted or something? I wonder how many others have had to wait over 3 months for their order? Alright, I am done venting.

Congratulations on your new car, post some pics and let us know what you think of it.

I see nothing...

Actually, it was only seconds before the Sun went down and the Sun was obscured by clouds.

Had I made it there about 5 minutes earlier there would have been better light...

Second day of the Focus.

Put more miles on today, showing friends and family. Only two minor difficulties found.
A paint ding next to the high mounted brake light.
I can not log into the syncmyride website with the ID and password my dealer gave me. Sync Services is working, however.

I am going to contact my dealer after the Memorial Day car rush is over. I am hoping that can address both issues for me.

Still happy.

I have a VIN and the car is supposed to be built tomorrow. (why they're working on Memorial Day I have no idea) I still can't get a sticker though. I've sent Noemi a pm to no avail. What gives?

Noemi is a great resource, when she follows through. She last asked me for info on 5/10, which I provided. Then....nothing.

I am looking forward to this buying experience being over. If the owning experience is anything similar....

Bought mine March 15, went in looking and got lucky as what I wanted was already on the lot. Didn't have to wait for an order. I know I joined the boat a little late, but I'm in for the long haul now. Looking to have my rims/calipers painted though.
