I emailed my dealer but he's a bit slow. Can boles or Kirby get a Vin from dealer number and order number info?

Under normal circumstances, Yes. All day long. So far, we haven't seen any tracked RS orders get VIN assignments. I'm confident that we will be able to see them, once they're assigned. Sadly, I can't track the OP's order because he/she is in the UK.

All of our VINs should begin with WF0DP3TH_G4 which is what I'm guessing people are getting from their dealer. That's nothing new, they probably just found it on these forums since we've been talking about it lately. lol

W is Manufactured in Germany
F0 is Ford Werke A.G.
D is Driver and Passenger Front and Side Airbags and Active Belts All positions
P3 is Focus
T THIS MAKES IT AN RS!!!
H is 2.3 liter Ecoboost (check out the Mustangs)
_ is your check digit
G is model year 2016
4 is the Saarlouis plant

And then we have a six digit sequence number at the end. Once we know at least one production car sequence number I'll be able to start tracking how many are made each day.

Sorry are you trying to be a douchebag? It was a legitimate question.
It was a legitimate reply. Google is your friend for simple questions.

So the partial I was given is 1FADP3TH0G4XXXXXX... No W? Any info on this?

Your dealer filled in their assumption for the WMI. The 0 before the G is just a filler until the last 6 get assigned then it will be calculated.

We know for a fact the cars are built in Germany. So they have to start with a W. F0 (Ford Werke A.G.) is the division the saarlouis plant is under.

That beginning VIN is for a FoST not the FoRS.

A royal slapping of the salesperson is in order!
