    Just spoke with my dealer and he is telling me the car is still in Baltimore despite being gate released on the 9th of January. I hope he's wrong.

    It could be 'waiting' for more cars to make up the total needed to go on a boat. Or could have been forgotten, welcome to how some of us with my15-17s felt :p

    Rule no #1

    Don't believe anything your dealer tells you, it's probably wrong :lol:

    email mustang@ford.com if you haven't already - the team there were keeping me updated when mine came in last summer.

    Build next week, delivery 21st April. Missed spoiler option by a week or so, which was a bit of a pisser.

    But my fabulous Dealer gave me the option of cancelling and re-ordering, but decided against that, figured an aftermarket spoiler fit would be fine and really don't want to wait any longer :thumbsup:

    Looking at my ETIS,
    Front headlight levelling might mean brighter lights.
    Those springs look like GT350s.

    Definitely taking the info with a grain of salt.

    Tried the email address a few times and had zero response. Mustn't be bothered with us new mustang owners.

    Its a shame the ship tracking has lost "cargo ID"
    I dont see how you get it back to type your vin in.
    It would tell you if your booked on a ship.
    Sometimes the dealers info is not up to date.
    I'm expecting a call from the dealer over the next couple of weeks regarding pick up.It can take a couple of weeks when it hits southampton.

    It really is, however you can email WWL for updates, around the cargo's id and hopefully they can help.

    It seems like an illogical thing to do to remove tracking via cargo ID, but I assume it stops people who are not the direct buyers/recipients (In this case, we're not the direct buyers, but we're a few handoffs in the chain) tracking products. :shrug:

    VIN is normally allocated 2 or more weeks before the build date.

    If they told you a build date then it must have a vin to look up.These are moving quite fast,better then last time for me when it was stuck at the factory for weeks.

    The other unusual thing is having a mid-week date for build. Usually the first date you are given is the Monday of the week in which it will be built and when production is scheduled you usually have access to the window sticker and an actual build date. Won't the dealer give you a screenshot of what's on their system?

    My dealer is telling me the same thing. The build date is still showing as today, but he says it might be tomorrow before he can access the VIN.
