    Hi,

    I ordered my RS a while ago and have been told the build date is in October – can’t wait! I’ve never owned a RS. To be honest I’ve owned a few EP3 Type R’s and it was a big decision to move over but really excited.

    Is there a way of seeing where the process is regarding your car’s delivery?

    Thanks

    You can get the VIN number (via dealer or @FordService) and track through ETIS

    Then go to ETIS

    Enter your 17 character VIN number into the “VIN Entry:” input box and click the “Search” button

    Hi I ordered mine in late January, build date keeps changing backwards and forwards, last update I had last week was should be built in August for September delivery. Once it has been confirmed it normally takes a month to land in uk.!!?

    @FordRS doing the same coming from an ep3 civic I have had for the last 8 years.  Wasn’t fussed on the FN2 so stuck with my premier edition.  Thought I would definitely swap for the FK2 but again baulked once I saw it in the flesh.  Just doesn’t look right from certain angles and a bit OTT also being front wheel drive not giving me that much of a different driving experience (except more torque and speed obviously).  I promised myself if changing had to be very different and then I looked into the RS spec. Knew immediately had to go for it.  Ordered last Christmas and just issued with VIN and build date so the waiting is nearly over.

    Howzer73 – same here skipped out on the fn2 and stuck with my premier edition. Test drove the fk2 and thought it was particularly good in some aspects such as gear change and all the safety extras that comes with the gt pack etc. Also liked the interior but the exhaust sound was non existent 🙁

    so had to test drive the RS and that was that…

    I know the test drive was final confirmation I had made the right call.  The first roundabout had me hooked filtering onto a motorway slip in sport on full throttle.  Still brings a smile now and the exhaust noise is great considering just standard from the factory. Enjoy your car when you get it.
