No. Your car wasn't built on a Monday or Friday.

I just talked to the dealer to get my VIN and he gave an ETA of Nov-21. I entered the VIN into the ETIS site and it gave me a build date of "30.11.0002". My current theories are 1. someone reset the year counter in 2009 without telling me, 2. that's a Federation Stardate, or 3. I have to wait for the second coming to get my car.

Assuming the month and day are correct, any ideas as to why the dealer would give an ETA earlier than the build date? Sheer optimism?

Oops, accidentally posted the following in error - separate thread created.
Our Titanium Focus H/B was built Oct.24 and due to arrive early Nov. here in north Texas via the Mesquite railhead. Listed below is the vehicle specific info from ETIS. It's showing "with Kysor radiator shutter", so curious to see if the car arrives with this feature. Understood that previuosly delivered similar Focus Titanium H/B's did not. Anyone care to take a look and comment if their vehicles had this feature listed on ETIS and whether their Focus came with or without the shutters? Thanks.

Don't you watch top gear? Saloon is what they call Sedans in Europe. Not sure why it's calling the hatch a saloon though.

That is a generic date, ETIS does not really update until your car is built. When your window sticker becomes available it will be on the bottom of it.
