Job 1, 2, 3... makes more sense to me.
Yeah, it's def not before/after built (cause you can look at cars that have already been built). The only other thing I could think it would be would be shift #

Ordered a Titanium Hatch with MFT
Tri-coat white,

Feb 28 - Order Date:
April 14th - Vin Received:
April 21st - Window Sticker:
April 28th - Build Date

I live about 4 hours away from Michigan, but not sure on the delivery time or anything.

I also have a quick question regarding the Canadian Focus. Can anyone verify that we get the Intelligent Key w/ push button start? I noticed that it was on *feature* page for ford.ca, however I cannot find it under the spec sheets (when comparing different models and options/standard equipment), and there is no mention of it on any Canadian Focus window stickers, but it is noted on any U.S bound Stickers (looking at this thread)

When I ordered the car over the Golf TDI way back in Feb, the sales guy assured me it was included, however after bringing this to his attention, is not sure now. Nissan pulled this with me on the Sentra when I bought it (oddly enough, we sometimes get excluded features), and left a really sour taste in my mouth. If ford is pulling the same thing, I may cancel the order and go with the Golf again (prices here are about $5.40/gallon atm, and expected to hit $6.00 by June, so gas mileage is always on the back of my mind)

Thanks!
Go here, and enter your vin then click the down arrow and it will list every component/option that is going into your vehicle.

And to answer your question, yes in Canada we do get the push button start.

Why, they are all 2012 Focus'. The only difference between a Titanium 401A and my SEL 303A is the sport tuned suspension and intelligent access/push button start. The Moderator has indicated there is no need for a 2012 specific category, don't count on a Titanium only thread.

I was informed there was others such as 18" wheels with 235/40/18 PS3 michelin tires etc.

I would be happy even with a specific 2012 thread as the engine, body, and numerous items are brand new and share nothing in common with 2011 or earlier focus models.

My feeling is optional wheels and tires aren't enough to create a specific thread.
Check out the discussion in the Can someone make a 2012 area thread.

Probably right but at least a 2012 focus specific thread would be nice as there is actually very little information out there.

I agree! A 2012 Focus specific forum would be nice!

Anyone have any clue if I ordered a Titanium just yesterday, and they are pumping out most Titaniums next week, should I expect mine any sooner than 6-8 weeks that they told me? Any special treatment for going on the high end?

Don't think that would happen. The line forms at the end.
