When you fill it with a hot beverage, the "start" ignition button appears. Be careful though, even though I was super careful in washing it by hand, the inside of the clear plastic now has a lot of condensation in it.

If I get one I'll use it to mix my Margaret's in when we go down to the Old Folks Club House.

Quick question about the VIN. Based on the info from the Fleet site, the last 6 digits are the production sequence #. Does this number actually represent the order in which the car is going to be built?

For instance, if one VIN ends with 144000, and another is 152000, does that mean the second is 8,000 cars further back in line?

No, I don't think VINs are assigned in any particular order.

Thanks for photo & info on the mug. Maybe one is on it's way to my mailbox. Dealer told me today he expected to get a build date next week on my Titanium.

Maybe not the VIN itself, but the number at the top left of the sticker "MIC-000XXX" looks more like a sequence number to me. Especially since the cars that my dealer has in are all low: 000034, 091, 145, 147, 191... while mine is 445. If not a build sequence, perhaps an order number or "birthdate"?

I bet the mug looks great with the ambient lighting, as it appears that it was also designed to interact with it coming from the front cup holder. Seems like that clear plastic ring is in the perfect spot!

Just a hunch. Someone lucky enough to get their Focus with the ambient lighting will have to test this theory...preferably at night!

I'd rather have a replica "Doug" puppet as a preorder gift. :)

^Me too!!

This is weird, and totally , but...

If any of you have DirectTV, check out channel 111. Here in SoCal, it's completely dedicated to the 2012 Focus. It has features, Ford Trivia game, puzzle game, and a request a brochure button. I'm curious if this "request a brochure" will offer the same $750 private cash as the one from Ford.com, or something else.


Check it out.

UPDATE: To request a brochure, you need to have your receiver connected to a phone line.
