Hello all. I am one of the Lucy SOB's that got an allocation on a RS back in October. Just putting out there that I manage at the Focus plant in Michigan, MAP. I know a lot about the stock Focus, Focus ST, C-Mac, etc. I am also in the dark like it looks like many are here about when the car will actually be at my dealer and such. Maybe if there is new info someone could point me there...Otherwise I just thought I would chime in. Hope to have fun with our RS's. Also I have owned a 04 Comp Orange SVT for many years and did quite a bit of internal work to get it to 220 HP. Was a big poster on the other sites as user "euroayres". Look forward to conversing with everyone and enjoying our cars, whenever that happens...

Hi. Welcome. I called FORD RELATIONS (800) 392-3673 and was told that the Plant in Germany starting building American Allocations on 1/25/16. And that when the boat has been filled. Shipment will depart for the states.

Here's the link to the shipping company.

If you go on the web site you will see Port to Port info. Here are links to the Ports of Departure and Arrival.

Port Baltimore is a huge Automotive Hub. That is where my Evo 10 arrived in America.

Also did you read the info I posted on my thread. Here's the link. About the Manufacturing of your RS order. If they started on the order which is for YOU not a general order for the Dealer. You can get the Vin #.

I tried to figure the arrival week for the first boat. And I think it will be anywhere from Early April to Early May.

Fingers crossed !!
