hello everyone. new to the site. i ordered a tuxedo black ST3 July 20th, here in wichita kansas, my dealer cant seem to give me any info at all on my order. i have read that there are issues with the HID headlights and that the release date of the ST3's is pushed back because of it. not sure what i believe. just know i want my car.. any new info on ST3's will be greatly appreciated on my end.. thanks all!!!

I ordered my st3 Focus May 23rd and all I've heard is I won't see it until the end of Sepetember to the middle of October. However if I want to change the lights to the ST2 style i could have it a month sooner. I'm holden out for the HID headlights.....come on Ford put some thumb screws on the manufacture that is making those parts. My go pro camara will not help much if I get my car well after everybody else has their car.

My dealership told me the st3s wouldn't be in until late november. So I opted for the st2 instead. I plan on ordering aftermarket hids for about 50 bucks.

No worries my friend, in production is what you wanna hear. If they told you that its in production on Wednsday it should be done by the end of the week... midweek next week at the LATEST. You can probably expect your ride mid-september, you'll get some use out of the summer tires after all!

No joke!! I just wish I could get a reasonable estimate, then maybe I could wait a little more patiently!!

when i ordered my focus on june 2nd i asked my dealer to email me the DORA and it gave me a few numbers. one seemed like a partial VIN and the other i found out was an order number which i sent to a facebook user which was said to be able to give info on the whereabouts/ status of the order. natashaatford was the name i believe. either way i will be posting her reply when i get it
