    Had to call the dealer, but he gave me my vin today.

    I didn't get the 401A. I cant imagine it being much different assembly times though. It might be different body harness but def different front and rear seats, different headlights and a few other small items. They likely use the same harness regardless and omit a specific control module though.

    When not in sport and the radio is off it will reduce some noise determined to be unfavorable by ford engineers. I don’t know if the system is actually working with radio on but based on info from other forum members it’s designed to be active when the radio is off.

    Thanks for that info. I saw others complain about the reverse camera quality also. The navigation through the dash center speaker sounds good to me. I don't like the instructions to be a major interruption. In my 2011 it blares through all the speakers like yours and I have always hated that.

    It likely uses its own source not tied to the audio system so it cannot be disabled that way.

    It uses the noise cancellation system which has microphones that capture engine noise and creates neutralizing frequencies in the sound system to block out the noise. Its basically instead capturing engine noise and amplifying it through the sound system. I'm sure its losing some frequencies and enhancing others though so it will sound artificial.

    Yours is set to beat mine even with a late order date. I ordered on 9/19/18 and is set for delivery on 12/25/18. The last car I factory ordered took about 10 weeks as well and was a first generation model. (Dodge Caliber R/T AWD)

    If memory serves me it is also a digital amp (Class D) with no analog elements. The speakers are digital input for efficiency.. In fact B&O holds patents on a distortion reduction system that emulates analog quality from digital source and signal.

    Did you try power launching it? Using the brake to bring the revs up to converter stall speed at launch?

    I think it might be best to wait till testers have production units and revisit this. I'm betting we will see tester numbers ranging as much as 1 full second In 2011 C&D and MT both tested mine and had a huge difference. 7.6 on MT and 6.9 on C&D. As for handling I have yet to see an owner say the ST handles worse than previous models. For a track rated "Sport" Ill happily pay the tiny price increase to have a more reliable car for spirited driving. For me its a giant upgrade from my 2011 though.

    Can you comment on clarity and range? Do the speakers bottom out at high volume and does it need tweaking to balance out treble and mids from the factory defaults? I definetly have high hopes for the B&O system.

    Without having heard the B&O I can tell you there is a huge difference. The Sony system was 390 Watts and used some really bad digital amp. Even the Sony Platinum system used in the explorer was only 500 watts. The B&O is 800 Watts and uses a better amp. The sound system has always been my biggest gripe with my edge. My $26K Dodge Caliber had a better sound system by far and was a big let down every time i crank my favorite songs in my edge.

    Ahh ok.. Only asked because I just watched a vid of a guy picking up a car for his wife. He was trading his wife's 18 mustang GT though

    Did you trade in her mustang and make a YouTube vid as you picked it up?

    That is cool. Almost makes me want to switch to 401A just for this feature. I'm at the edge of my budget though and really dont need much else from the 401A group.
  15. You are right, I didn't notice the adaptive headlights or rear heated seats. Looks like also the auto dimming driver mirror, Enhanced Active Park Assist and power shade on the sunroof. The US has a larger pricing difference between an equally loaded 400A and 401A though for some reason. Its $2360 without the wheels. *Edit: I just contacted Ford about the powershade and it looks like its simply missing from the literature when configured with the 400A group.
