just ordered a new RS yesterday and managed to get a cancelled order slot for October. The guys at ford tell me my RS will come with the new Sync 3 system which apparently better than the 2. Any body have this fitted?
That’s a disgrace Stephen. I ordered in January & may have an October build date although it’s not confirmed. That’s in line with what I was told to expect. I simply don’t understand how Ford organise the order that each car will be built, it certainly doesn’t go in date order. I didn’t spec the Lux pack as nothing in it appeals to me and resale value doesn’t concern me but other potential owners on another forum who have ordered it and have been given a build date after 23/09, say that their order shows as ‘Premium Nav SYNC 3’ on Vista. My dealer sent me a screen shot of my order the other day which is now showing as a 2017 MY, was previously 2016.75 MY. Dealer states that this relates to the vehicle specification, not when it will be built so fingers crossed for a SYNC 3 upgrade for free.
Yes it is disgraceful I know of some who ordered March 2016 and have their cars. Its very erratic. I have specked everything except active city stop and shell seats. There’s a possibility that following the interest rate cut which will have little effect on the economy that Mr Chancellor may cut VAT to 17.5%. If that happens its over a £700 saving and maybe Sync3 what a result.
