You may have read about this in the Production numbers MY16/MY17? thread and wondered how you could get your hands on one of these.

The production plaque is engraved aluminum with self adhesive goes for 35 USD, this includes shipping and handling to the US.

If you want a second it is only 15USD more - for a total 50USD. (you can choose different colors on each plaque)

Suggestion is the RS logo stays light blue and then the background you can select your car color or any other color that you prefer. I went with RS logo light blue and background of light gray.

PayPal and contact address is: [email protected]

Current batch being made for delivery at the end of February (data /order collection until 6th of February).

Each month in general he collects data until the beginning of a month and delivery is at the end of the same month, so in March again data collection until Monday the 6th with delivery at the end of the month.

First, all you need is a VIN to find the car in the database, which are basically barcode readings at the end of the production lines and - only for Focus ST and Fiesta ST - a macro that is connecting this data with export-import data of the various countries and has done this for German websites for more than 6 years.

He has a lot of connections to the Ford plants here in Europe (but also in Michigan, Cuautitlan Stamping and Assembly Plant etc.) ... the production of the Focus Mk3 was increased the last month, but still not much more than 25,000 will leave the Ford plant in Saarlouis until this summer when production ends.

For those interested, I hope that this thread helps.

From my looking in and around the forums, Yes and No.

The data gathering appears to be legit.

However, this isn't a endorsed by Ford or a current project.

So in all general cases, it's eye candy...........

I guess once plaques arrive we can look at our numbers and compare build dates and figure if they're accurate.

My production number is: 04380 built on 3MAY2016.

This is the number in which it rolled off the line at Saarlouis, so maybe someone out there can fact check this.

Yes, that's him. Also those others shots were examples for the Mk2 and Mk3 plaques.

Do we just contact him by sending him $$ via PayPal? I've tried to email this guy 3x and have never received a response.

I just did a couple hours ago and he got back to me right away. Make sure you mention you are from Focusrs.org.

the email response will say: false <[email protected]>

I like the look. I'll order one when CoAs become available. I'd want it to match that, not a third-party unofficial accounting method.

love these, but it would suck if you found out after the number was wrong

His cutoff for Feb production was 02/06 so you'd get on the March delivery list.
That's okay, sometimes I'm a day late and a dollar short :topsy_turvy:

I think it would be of a great value to know the number of RS mk3 produced as 4473/10000 is more interesting than a plaque with only 4473 for example!

If we wait until the end of the Mk3 Focus RS run he may be able to make it in that format if he has the data, but as of right now the total number is only a projection, so until production actually stops it would not be good to use.

Of course and I realized that, and that's why I will wait until the end of production because right now our number is just a number with no signification :)

I agree. Factory is always better. Below was the badge on my first Spyder from 2008. Mounted on the glove box lid
