    Hi Gunny. Yes. That was a nice, simple question with a nice, simple answer. 🤗 "Drivers Sport Package" for 2017 model year. "Drivers Package" for 2018 model year. Neither of those "packages" available in 2019-2020 model years. The torque vectoring was simply made standard equipment on all 3.0T AWD MKZ's. But many of the visible features (i.e. black and white seats, black brake calipers etc) were no longer available. Good luck.

    Is it the same as the Driver Sport Package, a $3395.00 option in 2017?

    Hi Gunny. I added some confusion to my previous post at the same time you were posting your last reply. So take a look. 🙃 I am happy to help with the VIN, so feel free to post back. Good luck

    Well that makes it a lot harder to figure out. When the time comes to select a car, I will keep your offer in mind! Thank you!

    Hi Gunny. If you post a VIN, I can pull up the as-built information for you. To answer your question, sort of: Well, it is possible to go by the visible parts. However, it becomes complicated, and I have some time, so I will post a very confusing explanation. 🤣 You can not necessarily use the Magnetic painted grill/10 spoke wheels/black and white accent seats (and black painted brake calipers etc.) being there, or missing, as definitive indicators of a Drivers Package equipped MKZ, since some of those items were available as individual options/option packages in 2017-2018 model years (i.e. an available "Magnetic Package" gave you the painted grill and wheels). And some of those items were not available at all on the 2019-2020 (e.g. the black w/white trim seats, black painted brake calipers). So essentially...there are 2017-2018's with Magnetic painted grills and 10 spoke wheels that do not have the Drivers Package. However, if it also has the black w/white seats then it should have the Drivers Package (unless the owner swapped in the DP seats later). 🙃 And there are 2019-2020 models without black w/white trim seats that do have the under the skin "Drivers Package" parts. This is because...although the Drivers Package was discontinued with the 2019 model year, any 2019-2020 3.0T AWD MKZ has the important under the skin parts of the old Drivers Package (i.e. Torque Vectoring etc). Those are just some of the possibilities and part of the confusing parts. 🤣 Good luck.

    Can you tell by the VIN if it has the Driver's Package, or do you have to go by the visible parts of the options (painted grill, 10 spoke wheels, black interior w/ white accents, etc)?

    3.0T Performance Modifications

    Haven't been around much, but thanks for the kind words. It all just started as a fun self discovery hobby to tinker on. I hope those with 3.0s enjoy them for a good time. A shame Lincoln is going full on utility vehicles, so who knows when a coupe or sedan will ever happen again. As for the Explorer ST, it's the same size and unit, so there is no swap upgrade to be had.

    Alright, I’ll give it a try. Thanks.
  13. With none, I used silicone to keep it in place.

    Replacing Speakers - 11 Speaker Model

    I just got the speakers today and there’s a ton of tweeter mounting options, which one did you go with?

    Hi Gunny. Just as an FYI: Ford owned Jaguar from 1990 to 2008. So your 2007 was produced at the tail end of the Ford years. And I really think you will like the AWD 3.0T MKZ. Just follow fusionff's advice and make sure you get an AWD with the Drivers Package. As fusionff mentioned, the Drivers Package was optional on the 2017-2018 AWD 3.0T's. Then most of the important elements of the Drivers Package (i.e. Torque Vectoring) became standard on the 2019-2020 AWD 3.0T's. Good luck.
  16. I agree... take it to a tech... let them figure out what it is. As has been said, diagnosing over the internet does not always mean it's best.

    So the Brit version... I think FOrd had them in the 2010-15 range... I think...
  18. Hi agk. A competent tech/mechanic should be able to tell if a strut or bearing is bad by an close inspection and taking the vehicle for a test drive. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Man, do I love my MKZ, and for some reason the gas pedal seems to go down so damn easy...😎 If you end up geting a 17 or 18, make sure the car has the Drivers Package, which includes Torque Vectoring. I believe it became standard equipment with the 3.0 (fun) engine in 2019, or was it 2020?, I can't remember. Anyway, happy hunting, and Welcome Aboard.
  21. Quick question: if the struts or a bearing is bad, is that something that’s easily visible? Or would they have to take things apart?
  22. Hi agk. Please do not double post questions. It is easier for other members to help when all information and replies are in one place. This thread will be locked, since the other already has a reply. Good luck.

    Hi Gunny. Welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum and nice Jag! I own a 2018 MKZ Reserve, 3.0T AWD. Love the car and think you would love it too. While Alfas have improved on the reliability end and are better than they used to be, they are still more trouble prone than the average car. Beautiful design, but trouble prone. I will leave the aftermarket tuning and other modifications for others to advise you, as I no longer tinker with my cars like that. I like my factory and extended warranties to stay intact If you find a nice used one, you can not go wrong with an MKZ 3.0T. We have a good bunch of members here. Hope you find a nice 3.0T and stick around. Keep us updated and good luck.

    it was a 2007, so after the Ford years. Man did I love that car! It was a "deployment gift" to myself when I got back from Afghanistan. Flew from NC to Salt Lake City to buy it then took 3 days drive it back across the country. She got destroyed on Feb 23rd, 2018.
  27. So they removed the ABS? Hmm... Could be a bearing, or struts going bad
