Just received a build-date from my dealer of August 13th. ST2 order placed Friday, May 4th.

Anyone else?

That's awesome!! My guy doesn't get into the office for a couple more hours. Hopefully I get some news.
When did you order yours? (edit, just kidding, saw May 4th)

Wow, this is awesome! My ST2 was ordered the first week as well, I'll have to check in with the dealer ASAP to see if there is any news.

Eeeeek! I hope I get mine soon... I hope it's in August.

If it's in September, I should skip class, drive to the plant, get Elnorte to sneak me in, and watch it get built. Too bad I won't have a car to drive across Michigan in.

Did you get a VIN too?

Ford Service Twitter, contacted. Dealership, emailed.

No VIN. I couldn't do much with it anyway.

The least you can do is purchase a super high quality SLR and take thousands of pictures when the car arrives. :D

Right after I clean my car for the first time, it'll be going out for a long drive/photo shoot. I've got 6 cameras, after all.

Or wait, maybe 8. I lost track. I only use 5 of them.
Is it bad that I want to sell my Go-Pro and buy a DSLR? :!!:

I have a DSLR. I'm looking forward to having the go pro for its ruggedness.

This reminds me -- how are you guys planning to handle the dealer prep process? I'm so freaked out by that detailing guy on "Drive Clean" that I don't want anyone to even touch my car, for fear of them putting swirls in the paint. I'd like to ask the dealer not to wash the car at all, but is that unrealistic?



We should also start a thread for things to look for when accepting the car from the dealer -- things like scratches, misaligned panels, etc. One particular thing I'm going to check is whether someone tried to stick a key in the ignition, not realizing it was touch start, scratching the steering column in the process.

Unsure if this was answered elsewhere .... but what is the expected time between build date to delivery?
My dealer said 4 weeks.
