Could have gotten one from out of state and have it drop ship to a local dealer but didn't work out. Future Ford Roseville had an allocation for a 2017 so I place my order the way I wanted it at 2k over. I wished I would've gotten it for MSRP like the others. But that ok now that I have my car!
    "I have my car!" - key phrase here . . . congratulations!

    @jl449 , @desertrs , and any other lucky bastards that took delivery of their MY2017 RS:

    did your car come with the FMIC blocking plate, as the MY2016s did? or is it absent from our 2017 cars?

    thx!

    Mine does not appear to have any kind of blocking plate on the intercooler!

    Congrats you all! I just drove my baby home from Vegas yesterday. What an amazing trip!!

    I have to add that based on some of the feedback on the "stiffness" and "harshness" of the suspension, I was expecting something far worse. But now that I have it, I think that some have totally overblown that issue (especially the magazine reviewers). I find the ride to be performance oriented, firm but not overly stiff and certainly not harsh. I also own a Mini Cooper and the ride of the RS is far more compliant and comfortable than the Mini. So for those that are used to driving around in mini vans and Escalades, you're going to be in for a surprise, otherwise if you're used to performance vehicles, I think you'll be very pleased with the RS.

    What an amazing car!! Good luck to you all if you haven't yet taken delivery yet. For those of you that have, enjoy the little beasts, have fun and be safe!

    Congrats GTMD
    you are right about the suspension. Like you I was expecting a very harsh ride but found a well rounded sport ride (normal mode). My Mazdaspeed 3 with a 1" lower supsension kit is far harsher then the RS.

    I picked her up today guys! Had 9 miles on Odometer! My dealer in LA was like "do you know someone at FORD? how did you avoid the ADM? (I paid MSRP in Iowa) Ha!
    Anyway, I only drove her 20 miles to my shop that's going to do full front-end PPF and then full-vehicle Modesta coating.
    I'll pick her up again tomorrow night or Saturday morning --> Pics to come!

    Hope everyone gets their cars soon!
