So, I am not trying to start with the sky is falling... Today I heard a rumor on Instagram that a design flaw was discovered in the RS and Saarlouis is putting production is on hold. This is probably complete BS, however, has anyone else heard this? Flame me all you want for starting this. No, I am not trolling. Just trying to figure out if this is even remotely true. Thanks guys.

Rumor, did a search on Instagram and nothing showed up from the search.

It has been discussed in other threads in here that some European build dates are being pushed back. No one knows the reason for sure but it does seem that build dates are shifting.

Agree , I saw a thread on here about UK based RS's being pushed back due to a flaw found at the plant. All orders pushed back.

That article is from MARCH 14th, 2012!!

For now, I'll say any talk about a production delay is pure rumor until I see an actual statement from Ford or the factory.

I'd rather hear only from someone inside Ford than see threads started on rumors alone. It only spreads Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD).

Commented by another forum member on something I posted. Like I said, figured it wasn't true but figured I'd ask.
