I put my order in for MY17 Platinum on 10/19 and my dealer had the VIN # by 10/21 Friday, because all order should be in before Thursday of any week. My 17 is in order processing and with built day of Sunday 11/13 with an ETA to dealer Monday 12/5. MAGNETIC GREY WITH BLACK INTERIOR. 55k with 12 miles per year 36m lease with taxes and first month and plate transfer with monthly $ 575.00 per month. sweet deal...

Just came home with my new Platinum in White Gold. Sticker MRSP $62,039. Price including $750 rebate, $56,965. 48 month lease with 16k km/year. 48 month ESP $1500. Had the Winter tires installed before leaving but will have to get new TPMS that will work with the new 4 tire display. Already added the 2" convex mirrors as well.

That sounds like a crazy good price. I'm looking at 15k miles per year, 39 month lease and paying sales tax down, along with taxes and fees and the price is over $600. Curious how you got such a good monthly payment.

Tires won't fit on the 20" rims since they are 18". I don't mind the look as function is more important to me than looks for the next few months. Besides, where are you going to get other wheels for $88 each. It isn't the snow that affects the aluminum/alloy wheels, it is all the salt and sand grit that is used. With the steelies there is no worry about constantly cleaning them. Just drive and forget
Thread was moved to this "Order Status" sub forum since that is the appropriate one for it.

I actually like the steelies, they remind me of the old sedan police cars from the 70's like on Adam-12.

Looks are subjective and you may not like it, but others don't really care; as I also have black steel rims for my winter set.
As Peter commented, every vehicle on the road will look like crap (I wash my vehicle weekly and can't keep it clean during the winters), from the salt, dirt and grime from the roads and who's going to care what the tires looks like?

Probably fair to say, you're the first in Ottawa with a White Gold Platinum?
Is that $56,965 OTR with taxes and fees?

Since I lease, the taxes are paid on the monthly payments. It included all fees and other taxes applicable. I actually saw 2 other White Gold Platinums around the small town I live in but it could have been the same I saw twice since the first sighting was at night.

Welcome to the Forum Joe. If you send that info you have to FordService via a PM they should be able to give you an updates. It is likely still too early to get an info off any sites.
