Well, I'm 5 months in and still loving the car. My primary aesthetic complaint was the stock wheels. I now have found and installed new wheels. And I also tinted the windows. Wheels are 19" Niche Misanos, with the barrel custom painted to match the car (it is subtle, but looks better in real life than in pics, especially with the car moving).

Glad you're loving it still! I'm sure it'll keep up that pleasure service as mines over a year now already (time flies) yet still drives how it was fresh...well better now that various fixes and improvements have been added.

 

Nice wheels indeed. Can't go wrong with black. I'm in the process of getting mine PVD Black Chrome'd to fit the Black Label theme.

Thanks. What do you guys think about tinting the tail light? I go back and forth with whether or not it would look better on my car. I wouldn't go all the black, I'd keep it legal. Other than that, my only other plan for the car is a ceramic coating sometime in the next few months.

Go for it. Will look sweet with the tints and dark wheels.

I second that. I do like the dark tinted highlights on non-black MKZs. That is why I like my black paint so the normal red tail light and reflectors have better definition on thier own.

I'm not a fan of all-blacked out cars personally, so I skip tinting on black cars.

I don't like everything all blacked out either... So I understand that. If I had gotten the black one, I definitely wouldn't darken the tail light. The red looks sweet on the black, IMHO.  I do like to always tint my windows, but that is partly for functional reasons, not just looks. 

 

 

Thanks for the input guys. I'll add that to the list of enhancements.
