What happened today?

My 2016 Focus RS was delivered to the dealer on 11/21/16! Paperwork and pickup were not until the next day. It was a nervous 24 hours!

I asked my buddy, John, to trailer the RS to my house. My reasoning was to minimize road hazards before the paint protection film and nanocoatings were applied.


1. RS had 5 miles on the odometer.
2. After my request the dealer allowed me to watch the entire Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI).
3. I was probably the first customer to refuse the complimentary free tank of gas (trailered the RS home).    :)
4. Revised 03/10/17 to include PDI report and RS Internet Forum Delivery Checklist (images below).
