When is the build,price and reserve site suppose to start working ? Anybody at the show that can ask?
They talked about it during the reveal in L.A. and said it would be up today but what time ?

on ford's site (fordvehicles.com) they have switched the photograph at the bottom of the "Cars" menu to the NA spec. Something tells me it should go live quite soon, especially with the promise of reserving a fiesta being available today.

Yeah, it looks like they're adding stuff slowly...IIRC earlier today clicking on the links on the site didn't do anything at all.

Two interesting notes: the 40MPG figure is "with SFE model"...rather odd; why can't all PowerShift Fiestas get 40mpg??

Also it says there are 3 leather options and 4 cloth options. This is good news for me, since my Fiesta will in all likelihood have cloth seats.

The SFE Package is the Powershift trans package. If click on the tab for performance it gives you a drop down menu that tells about it.

I'm reading that differently. The way I read it, Powershift is independent of SFE package. I believe the numbers can be found in one of the press releases from earlier today.

Fiestamovement.com has been changed aswell - they are looking for 20 2 person teams to promote the car: you will get a US Fiesta to accomplish that!

The 16" wheel design is pretty awful. Maybe a smart move so more will check the option box for the much better looking design 17" wheels.

Notice the S trim sedan comes de-chromed all around inside and out. Even the radio face is black, door pulls and even looks like a different front door skin, or at least the door pull handles look like they are out of the 2005 USA Focus.

MSRPs are higher then Ford execs have previously mentioned.

But I am impressed that Ford is offering a good selection so one can personalize the car.

Just set up an S sedan w/powershift (sorry, gave up on the manual idea).

$ 15,065

I really like the S, its everything I need, nothing I don't.

I'm not reserving at this moment. I wonder how reserving works. Do they actually treat it as factory order and schedule to build it? Does it give you a "place in line" if a wait list develops?

Looks like I'll be paying about roughly what I calculated before and with my company discount.

I tried to reserve mine but it says that my request can't be sent at this time, try again later. Anybody had this ?

Just set up a Fiesta SE hatch with Powershift, Sync, base alloy wheels, and got $17,620. Pretty eye-opening, I was hoping it would be cheaper than that. For $1k more I could also just get an SES with pretty much the same stuff. Hmmm, this will be difficult to decide (and pay for)
