Got my 2017 MKZ 3.0T Reserve. Loving it!!! Have the luxury package. The 20-speaker Revel Ultima sounds awesome.

Thanks.  I'm a first time Ford/Lincoln buyer, no regrets so far whatsoever.

Same here.  My 2014 is the best car I've ever owned, enjoyment-wise.  I've also never rec'd as many compliments about one of my vehicles.  (I've had some pretty interesting cars over the years)

That blue is awesome. I'm jealous. You didn't get the driver's sport package?

I love that color but I really wish the Reserve had polished wheels instead of just painted.   The 2016 MKZ was available with beautiful polished wheels.

I'm certain no new car came with only polished rims. All of them would be clear-coated. (and require the same maintenance regimen)

Drivers sport package was the only thing I didn't get. Wife didn't like the side bolstering on the seats.

These are the wheels available on the 2016 MKZ.  They were a $750 option and referred to as 19" 10 spoke polished aluminum wheels.   I don't know or care if they are clear coated but I think they are a better looking wheel than any available on the 2017s - except maybe the Black Label wheels.

Agreed.  I wanted those on my 2014 but was forced to take these, which I've never cared for, because of the 103A package.

BTW, all Lincoln OE wheels are clear-coated.

Great picture! I had to look up that restaurant. Very cool. Best of luck with your MKZ. How do you like the LED headlights?

They're great. Good white light and field of view.

Do they swivel when going around turns?

Adaptive headlights are standard equipment on all  MKZs, whether HID or LED.

Nice ride. I think we're driving twins. Do I see PPF on there? If so what did you go with?

Nope. No PPF.

Did make sure they didn't drill the front bumper! :-)
