I am just curious, I really wanted to reserve a FE but as a lot of folks experienced on the first day the Ford site kept crashing, so about 7AM on the following day with FE full, I reserved a WT. Has there been anything posted about if a FE reservation cancels that some of us wanting a FE would have a chance. With all the changes by Ford since Friday I am thinking some FE might drop out. If this question has been addressed elsewhere, please forgive me.

Check with your dealer that has your reservation. There might be a list started with Ford that you can get on. I think alot of folks that reserved one might be switching to other models

All these dealers are saying they will allow x plan... If Ford allows it. Just waiting for something official from Ford corporate (not a dealer) saying that also applies to FE. Some have mentioned the FE might be excluded.

Can't assume anything anymore...

Yeah has Ford stated or implied the FE's would be first made, other than the fact that all FE reservations were obviously very early in the process?
So converting a FE reservation to a non-FE shouldn't change your spot in the production order. Hopefully.

I would say that it won't change your spot in the reservation/timestamp order, but will likely change from a production queue perspective because it would no longer be an FE ... this is only if they are batching FEs for the earliest production queues.

Serious question. If there are 7000 First Edition Reservations, and last I checked, we had 400+ First Edition Reservation-Holders on this site, how organized and expansive do you think we could get a petition together to say that we, the largest and most dedicated fans, willing to spend the most amount of money on your product, do not like the design choices and restrictions placed on our model?

I'd imagine they'd need a vast majority of the 7,000 to consider a response. I'd be willing to create it and put in the work spreading it, but it'd have to be a massive team effort.
Count me in

I got this from someone pretty knowledgeable about the FE reservations:

"...those orders which are cancelled would go back to the region and the regional manager would disperse those at their discretion '.... 'But those would all be produced at the 7000 number."

IMHO Ford only raised the number to 7,000 so dealerships could have some to sell, because many (of you) reserved more than one. Thanks for ruining it for the rest of us :mad:
Your welcome.
All kidding aside, I truly believe the Ford site didn't account for 2 doors and 4 doors as a total of 3500. Hence the overage in orders. Highly doubt a handful of folks ordering two FE's would cause them to double the units.

So what exactly has been ruined for you?

Always good to know what kind of people we're dealing with.
Lucky for me I'm not dealing with you. Not that's in any of your business, but I ordered one for myself and one for my wife. She has decided to go with a Defender 110 instead.

I think his insult was partially aimed at your grammatical error.

But no, you, nor does anyone else, owe anyone an explanation or apology here. The system was fucked up and we did what we thought was right at the time. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
