    I ordered my st180 last month and the wait is killing me. I heard production started June 2nd. Seems like I'm going to be waiting a long time. Anyone else impatiently waiting for the 2015 model?

    I ordered mine early May and don't have a VIN or scheduled date yet. It is a retail order with the highest priority, but I don't expect it until at least September. Worst case is November, with late September thru October being the most likely. I feel bad for the people who ordered cars in April and had dealers tell them they would arrive in 6-8 weeks.

    Yep, very worth the wait. I plan on having a box of goodies from Cobb or FSWerks sitting in the garage ready for the ST when it arrives. I have lots of big plans for the car over the next few years, but will be getting started right away. Since it is arriving later in the year, most modifications will have to wait for spring and one of the first modifications will be snow tires.

    It took months to get the Fiesta Movement discount figured out, so I missed out on the 2014 models. Then it took weeks to sort out the 2015 discount before I could order mine. Glad all that is behind me, but the wait is a killer. Another ST was ordered a week before mine and got their VIN recently. I hope mine isn't too far behind it. Looking at my 2011 timeline, it took 6 weeks from scheduled to delivery. That was with a week for a quality check in Detroit. Once a VIN and build date are scheduled, things will happen really fast. Unless shipping is all messed up, and then we are waiting longer.

    Yup coming out of Mexico on a train is killer as the railroad does what it wants when it wants for whatever reason it wants.. Best Time I have seen is 9 weeks avg time is 12-16 weeks from order to delivery once they start building them... At least you won't have to wait for the dealer cars to roll in ahead of yours .. And lets hope we have a el nino winter for a change so tired of snow blowing .. LOL though this car is a HOOT in the snow can't wait to see how it pulls with the LSD this winter ...

    It is really tough to judge delivery times on the Fiesta. I have all the updates from my 2011, but that was an early production of the first year, so not a good indicator. Looking at the dates, it actually moved pretty quickly once scheduled. The plant had only been producing cars for a few weeks prior to mine getting built. The 2014 Fiesta launch looked to have been delayed, which pushed back the ST's. We had to wait almost an extra month to get the Fiesta Movement cars due to delays with the regular Fiestas. If production was delayed due to the same reasons, that would have pushed everyones delivery out. Using my 2011 and any 2014 ST for a timeline is almost impossible to estimate the time for a 2015. The best indicator would be a 2012 or 2013 Fiesta ordered in the spring and find the delivery time. First year production stuff is always longer.

    I have a sale pending on my 2011 Fiesta with a proposed delivery date of 9/1, so hopefully my ST is on its way by then and I can borrow a car until it arrives. To keep miles off the Fiesta, I have been driving my Mustang on dry days. I forgot what fun driving a 302 can be. :)
