Ordered mid-May, got my VIN last week, expected delivery mid-July.

 

Hybrid Reserve -- Magnetic Gray, Ebony Interior, Sonata Spin Trim

Climate Package  (the heated steering wheel may end up being my most-used option - I would have used it yesterday if I had it)

Tech Package 

Luxury Package (stereo obviously an attraction, but those adaptive headlights will be very useful on very dark New Hampshire roads)

Multicontour Seats (long commute, couldn't pass this up)

Panoramic Moonroof

 

First brand new car for me since 2005, I'm excited.  The excitement of this helps ease the sting of having to add a 16-year old male driver to insurance in January.

Congrats! You are going to absolutely LOVE the car. That is very nicely equipped!
I got the same color combo, including the aluminum interior trim. You will like the way it matches the aluminum on the center console!
Which wheels are you getting? The "standard" Reserve wheels have changed from silver-painted to Magnetic-painted. Those would look great on your car!
P.S. No sales tax in NH, correct?

 I ordered the 2017 mkz reserve Hybrid back in November 2k16 and received on Jan212k17, exterior color White palladium Gold, interior, cappuccino, every gimmick is on on car minus rear sun shade and panoramic roof(Do have moon roof).

Painted wheels (WHEEL LOCKS ALSO), suggestions, after market, invisible bra(unless you like collecting insects)( insects comes off easy), Rain deflectors, Tinted windows (35%), Rear trunk protector (about $75-80)

The White Gold palladium for some reason hides the dirt and looking up close you will see it, but normal distance ,no

Wash and wax car using optimum glass coat 2.0. Supposedly reacts with the paint to put on an extra clear coat, my car is still beading since January.

Touch up paint was obtained thru amazon since I couldn't find white gold palladium elsewhere.

Impove MPG, WHEN EVER possible turn off Climate Control. Use ECO in city, not so much on interstate, use auto hold city, not so much interstate

Did use heated steering wheel in January ,definitely does help and heats quickly, seat warmers do warm up but appear to take longer then steering wheel.

20 speakers, aluminum trim, multicontour seats

You should get 6yrs of travel service from Sirius free.

Car does recognize Samsung Galaxy S8

My update was done in the factory in December 2k16 and haven't seen an update since and you do realize everything is done via WiFi (Maps and software updates)

Had to purchase a wifi extender because on driveway WiFi was weak, but with extender signal extremely strong.

I forgot to mention I purchased 2 strips same material as used on invisible bra to prevent scuffing on all four doors and when you look at the rear door on driver side you can see strip of material, not so much on drivers door but it's still there.Holds true for other side as well.

I wasn't sure about the aluminum interior from pictures online, but the showroom model at the dealer had it, and I really like it.

 

Magnetic-painted.

 

Correct, no sales tax.

Your car looks great, thanks for the advice!  I've never been really good about keeping the exterior of my cars clean, but I've resolved to be better this time.

 

I'll be good for wi-fi updates as signal inside our garage is fine.

Picked it up Friday.  Was able to late-schedule a day off from work so I didn't have to leave the car alone during the day.

 

True to my expectation, I used the heated steering wheel on day 1.

 

Found plenty of excuses to drive this weekend.

 

First commute this morning, I love this car.

Great, enjoy!
I'd love to see a pic with those new wheels!
