    I think the delivery estimate is when the dealer is supposed to receive the car. At least that's what my dealer told me. Good luck @jmelinte !

    Those dates are somewhat accurate I was told those dates are when the cars expected to leave modcenter not when the dealer receives them. So you still have to account for a few days shipping. My date changed 3 times Dec. 12-17 then Dec. 17-24 then pending update car was received at dealer on the 28th. The pending update wasn't another date change it was just waiting for dealer to receive to update statues. I've seen people receive their cars few days before the dates and a few days after but unless it changes again it's safe to say you'll receive sometime within that window give or take a week before or after those dates.

    In my experience, no. My original estimate was 12/13, but the car didn't make it to the dealer until 12/28, over 2 weeks later. This, when the port is only a 4 hour drive from the dealer.

    This has led me to a theory: no date should from Ford should be considered accurate/reliable until it's no longer relevant. The manufacture date can only be considered accurate when a ship date is received. A ship date can only be considered reliable when an ETA is provided. And an ETA can only be considered gospel when you've taken delivery of the car.

    My date has been doing the opposite...becoming sooner, not later.

    My ETA to the dealer shifted once, after the last date in the window had passed. Just for reference, it took exactly 30 calendar days for my car to clear the modcenter (from MODCENTER to PORTYARD) once it was received by the port authority from the ship it came in on. My dealer is only 4 miles from the port. Once it cleared the modcenter, it was transported to my dealer in 3 business days.

    I assume that since mine hit the Hueneme Port Yard on January 1st it should reach my dealer this week. I've started to move my money around for the purchase. I'm trying to not get too excited.

    I was told by the dealer that the car set sail on 11/10/16 and that was all the info he had at this time. Is there another way to track or get updates on the arrival time of my RS. I am on the east coast in Southern Maryland. I believe the car will come into the port of Baltimore. That where all our cars come in at!
