How do you know if there has already been 1000 orders already placed? How do you ensure you lock that in the deal through the dealer? It might already be up on here and I over looked it. Thanks.

Lisa posted yesterday on Facebook, "they are still under 1000"

You know you got one when your dealer has input your into to the registation website.

Pre-order members care to fill in any gaps?

My confirmation just says " if you are one of the first 1000". Doesn't tell me where on the list I am.

I haven't received any confirmation from Ford. The dealer seems to have the order in but I'm not sure if they submitted it on any special website other than a normal order would be. I emailed the contact email that others posted in their acceptance email a couple days ago but have not heard anything.

And all of these posts show why I'm concerned. I use to sell cars and I have seen some shady stuff so I wouldn't be surprised if some of the dealers steal it from the customers and say "sorry you weren't 1 of the 1000".

My dealer didn't know about the camera until I told him, he didn't know about the registration site until I told him...

I have yet to receive any email from Ford directly, just emails from my dealer.

May 1 order

Only problem with that is the first 1000 will get a special window sticker that will mention the GoPro.

Here is what the confirmation email looks like, note that It wasn't sent to me but to my dealership and then forwarded to me:

But will it already be on the car? If it is, that would kinda suck. I want the sticker, but I want to decide where to put it. (I'm very particular about those things. If my dealer puts a dealer sticker on my car, they will be taking it off while I watch, before I leave. Sorry...rant)

I thought the reference was to the vehicle build sticker having some info on it about being go pro eligible. That window sticker is usually folded nicely and in my glove box.

Dream, I take dealer logos and plate frames off the car first thing when I get home. It's our first bonding experience.

Baron you could always do business with my dealership. They are way ahead of many. Do the deal on the phone or make the drive to Oneida NY. Just off the NYS Throughway.

I told my dealer if they put the front license plate bracket on I will back out of the deal. I do not like holes in the bumpers or a plate on the front. So ugly.

I've got a dealer close to me that's good abd I've done business with them in the past. It's just they are a small dealership so I don't think they get a lot of the higher end items. They aren't SVT certified for example so they don't get the nice toys.
