Just been checking and there seems to be about 60 FordStores in the UK. My store says they have sold 20 rs so if we take this as an average then you don,t have to be a genius to see that is 1200 cars so far for this country. Does this seem to agree with other peoples estimation?

The ford store I ordered from only had 4 orders including my own (if that is true I don't know).

There are 120+ people just on this forum that have ordered an RS.

1200 is probably about right just for the UK.

I would say there is Slim to zero chance, that Ford would supply around 2k in the first batch alone, there are other countries like US and China in contention this time around.
Ford did say...."we have planned sufficient capacity to meet expected sales,we do expect high levels of demand,particularly during the early launch phase"

We'll soon find out , if they did in fact anticipate such high demand, when our members would start getting info about their allocated build dates ( quite a few memebers still haven't received confirmation of reservation from Ford ) or it's just a usual marketing talk.

Once all the reservation orders are processed the next stage should be build MONTH appearing on VISTA. Build DATES will follow closer to the time. The numbers that Saarlouis can turn out are huge.

Hope you are right Rich and everyone from our forum, who had placed an order already , would get their car in the first batch :yep:

I'm just a little skeptical , after quite a few members waited for Focus St for considerable time more, then was originally promised by Ford :nice:
