  1. Yes for sure, I'm going to look at it tomorrow, but have to go out of town until March 12th, so, can't pick it up until then. Do believe that! I waited all this time, and it came in earlier than I expected. Oh well, can't wait to get it though.
  2. Mine is off the train and on a truck, about 10 miles away from the dealer. So, should be at the dealer today! This would make the total time from ordering 4 months 2 weeks.

    Thanks, I'll order a pair.

    Hi TC_Andy, Looks great! I'm waiting for my special order, it's currently in N.J. waiting for a train ride to Michigan. Maybe you could answer a question? I see you ordered the Upfitter Wiring Harness. Have you found out yet what this includes? I know on the full size Transit and Pickups it includes Switches on the dash. I also ordered it but no one. including the dealer has any knowledge, and no one on this forum has ordered it besides me and you. So, if you could please take a look and let us know what it includes that would be great! Thanks, Tom
  6. So far, everything in the system looks normal. I checked a whole batch coming to Michigan including mine. They have made it to port in N.J. and are starting to move through the system. I can specifically check the whereabouts with a VIN if anyone is interested..
  7. Yes! Actually my comfort leads just came today! I've been trying out the charger, it's great!
  8. Yes, but it depends on what they are changing. I used to travel around to the factory's and ports for simple updates, all done in the parking lots. What they do is send some personnel from the research center (like me) with a tool kit. Much easier to do TSB's and recalls in the dealership under controlled conditions. If a transmission is involved for sure a dealership is best. The ports are not equipped for this. They are mostly just a storage ground area to wait for railway transit. It's best to catch this at the plant before shipping.
  9. Wow! That doesn't sound good! I'll ask around to see what I can find out. I would think they would still ship them to the dealers and let them perform the parts updates. If you want to give me your VIN I can check daily for updates. I check on mine daily so one more VIN is no problem.
  10. Sam's Club has the Duracell Group 48 (H6) AGM on sale for $134, so I bought one. I also picked up a CTEK (56-353) MULTI US 7002 12-Volt Battery Charger to keep it in good shape.
  11. Yes, Euro gets the changes in 2018 and US 2019. The US 2018 is unchanged.
  12. Sorry to hear about your situation! The dealers that are listing the 2018 wagons in stock might not actually be there. The only 2018's that I found actually in stock are the cargo vans. I checked around yesterday some VIN's that are listed on some Michigan dealer web sites and they were actually still in transit just like yours and mine. If you have one in mind give me the VIN and I'll let you know where it is, I'm able to check. I'm going to wait for mine, I have until March. I understand you need it now.
  13. I'm a 35 year Ford Motor Company employee, but now retired since 2014. I still get A-plan, which is below invoice price, so brand new has always made sense for my situation. I always order with most all options. The 2018's already have incentives. Mine should be here next month or February since it's been shipped and in transit since Nov 21st. Hoping for more incentives yet after Jan. 1st.
  14. If you are talking to me, I will certainly keep this thread updated on progress of my 2018, here's the latest... There have been no updates since November 21st
