    Hey @j.d.hart did you even read this thread ?

    Here is where the "build week2, February 1, 2016" came from ...https://www.focusrs.org/forum/11-focu...html#post32984 Look at the picture..PLEASE on the RS line

    Nick said he was going to be away for awhile ...my speculation was because since Build week 2 was 23 days away ( February 1 minus today, January 9 +1) that might give Nick a breather because more than likely IMHO that the status of "Selected for Scheduling" would not change to "Scheduled" until the build week 2 date. Your opinion and @mboles2 may be different.

    YMMV,

    @TomekRST : I really appreciate your input here and was wondering if you could confirm the delivery method of the North American units? Will it be by air or sea? I would assume sea but would appreciate confirmation.

    Thanks!

    My dealer is speculating??? I was conferenced on the phone call with the rep from Dearborn. That all came from that rep, and NOT my dealer. The rep DID ask to verify my info, since Ford wants to verify that dealers are not putting in orders for their lots.

    Not sure if your reading comprehension is off a bit, but no exact details were given/confirmed about anything. This is just info being passed along from Dearborn. It has nothing to do with our "dealers"...

    My reading comprehension is not off Ha Ha. IMHO your are being led a line by Dearborn who IMHO is speculating! When you get your RS in February 2016 or even March 2016, then and only then I will say Dearborn told you the whole truth. Did you comprehend what I said ?

    These are my thoughts and opinions and do in no way impact or affect how others measure my understanding or reader comprehension of what I have read in other articles or other comments forum members have made.

    my 2 cents.... and maybe someone already said this but,

    The way i read that picture, is that week 2 (Jan 14th) cars selected for scheduling (some but not all) will be selected and scheduled for build beginning Feb 1st.

    Again someone may have already said that but its hard with all the arguing and stuff to find it.

    I'm just saying I have a good relationship with my dealer, and none of the info comes directly from them. They have no more control over the process than I do.

    Also, on the call, I did ask the rep when he thought I could expect delivery, and he couldn't give me anything solid, but said likely late spring/early summer. We haven't even been assigned a build date yet. The first run of a newly designed vehicle is always sketchy. My ST took almost 2 months to be delivered from Michigan AFTER being built. This is a much more exclusive car coming from a plant in Germany, thats also building them for the rest of the world, so I'm not expecting a rush delivery.

    Bottom line is no one knows exact details of delivery. Your batch of cars could be built, put on a ship, go through customs and then get delayed because of the rail it was put on, or the particular truck delivering your car to the dealership. I've learned from prior Ford Performance purchases that the best you can do is try to get updates from Ford themselves in some form, like calling Dearborn, e-mail, and social media (people like Nick), and then patiently wait...
