Accessories come painted on new orders?

For new orders, does anyone know if accessories come painted and installed from the factory? I'm getting conflicting information where someone told me yes and someone else told me they come primed and the dealer must paint/install.

Thanks
Bill

The deal as I understand it is this: You get an accessory package(Spoiler + Hoodscoop) it comes painted the color of your car. If you get it non package you have to buy it at the dealership and they contract out to have it painted.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was thinking. But I would think that all accessories requested on a factory order would come painted/installed. For example, the V6 Premium has a side scoops/quarter lovers/decklid panel package, but you can also order the hood scoop. So if you order the package + hood scoop, shouldn't all of it come painted and installed on your ordered car?

The basic line I keep getting from the sales guys is this:
If it says paint/work extra on the ford make a car website, it's basically an after market item that comes unpainted and not with the order. From what I gather Ford's really not setup to do decent custom orders.

It's stupid. I hope they do complete web orders soon. I would much rather order my car like it's a dominoes pizza.

If you order it with the car, when being built, it will come painted. If you order it over the parts counter, it needs to be painted & installed.

I ordered mine with the coupe accessory pkg 5 and, although I've only seen pictures...pick her up tomorrow, all the pieces are painted.....pretty sure only the ones ordered seperatly from the car/acces.pkg. come without being painted

Cool, thanks. I'm considering something very similar (same color/accessory package). Let me know if you post some pictures

Thank you. Does this hold true for parts that are not part of a package? (e.g., base GT with added hood scoop and side scoop)

Here was my discussion with the dealer:
Me: "I noticed you wrote the accessories need to be painted. I was told that when ordered from the factory they came painted. Is that not right?"
Dealer: "Not right. Log in to ford.com and look at accessories. They come primed."

Seems to me that's probably a true statement. And, as you've mentioned, that would be ordered over the parts counter and I'd expect it to require painting. The context of the discussion was in regards to ordering a vehicle. She must just be confused.
