36 miles with a sticker in the window saying 30 had been put on at the factory as my car was pulled for random testing... the dealers car had 18 mile on it with same sticker saying as much.. so I think the testers liked the Recaro's better than the stock seats is why mine special order car had 30 miles and the dealer stock plain jane had only 18... o_O

Ford put 71km on ours at the factory, picked it up from the dealer with 78km. Seems like maybe the extra mileage at the factory may have had something to do with the delay.

When I finally get mine I think I'd be so excited I'd put 200-300 miles on it before I made it from the dealer to home. :) Seeing quite a few with the "random testing" on it. The one I test drove had 22 miles of random testing. It seems more like they do it for fun if you ask me. :p Personally it would bother me to buy a new car with 20-30 miles on it if I special ordered it. If you think about it, that actually quite a few miles. I don't think I even drive 30 miles in a normal day with work and school. Obviously if you bought a car from a lot that's been there a couple weeks it might have been test driven a couple times.

Mine had about 70 on it but I assume it was because they had to get it from another dealer. Now that I think about it 70 seems like alot of delivery miles...

Don't worry I put 1000 miles on it the first 6 days I had it going to work lol

12 miles on the odometer on delivery. 4 of them for the saleswoman to fill the tank w/ 93 octane. She told me that during the day that the car was by the showroom there were at least 5 offers to buy it and lots of oglers.
