    Feeler: 2017 MKZ 3.0T AWD - Driver's Pkg

    its the pic, the iPhone cant always capture the LED output correctly. The car has 4 "glaring" issues. All cosmetic. 1) peeling paint on hood edge, known issue from Ford I just haven't had it addressed (yet) 2) slight scratch on passenger seat bottom. 3) Scuff on driver side side skirt, near bottom of fender I think a snow shovel grazed it during the winter as I have never curbed this car. 4) Interior scratch marks on the driver side rear window tint. PO must have had a dog, or the selling dealer used a tool to apply the window sticker, as there is a lot of scratch evidence. If I redo this, I have to redo all the tint to match as I dont know what film was used. Not visible from outside the car and I never sit back there so I havent addressed it. These are in my opinion the most noticeable issues of the car. at 50k miles none are very surprising, but would never want underdeliver on what I think is a great condition car.

    Hi Dj Tranz. Overall wheel/tire diameter can be programmed for speedometer calibration. However, I do not believe you can program a front/rear diameter differential, which is what you would need, if you use front to rear wheel/tires combinations with such a large differential. And as mentioned, there will be major issues with the ABS, ESC, AWD system, etc. etc., if it can not. However, I am not 100% sure, so hopefully one of our tech members will jump in with a definitive answer. Good luck.

    Looks like drivers side led fog light is out? Or is that just the pics? Would the CPO cover that?

    I have it up on FB marketplace, here, FordFusion Sport Forums, and a few other MKZ groups. I have everything together ready to go/sell. So def let me know if your timeline changes. I have actually had a lot of "hits" from FB, but no test drives or in person visits. Just lots of picture and inquiry conversations.

    Love the look and the mods. Please post here before you decide to sell online/public. I had a 17 Z that was very similar but I turned in because not driving due to covid. Will be looking for a replacement, but probably not until closer to the end of summer.

    Can you reprogram the ESC to reflect the wheel and tire diameter?

    Hi Dj Tranz. Keep in mind: Even if you can squeeze them in there to "fit", you will still have the issue of the difference in overall wheel/tire diameter being 4%+. This will cause issues with your MKZ's ABS and ESC systems. Keep us updated and good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    New spoiler.

    Thanks for the heads up. They assured me they will fit with they assured also the offset they are sending me. If not they’ll be getting those wheels back.

    No "walk up" Lights

    personally, I would not take the chance I would get a replacement battery I hate when I have vehicle trouble You can take your car into most any AutoZone or the like & they will test your battery with the battery sitting dormant for so long & the having to jump start & the battery messages, I would say it is time for a replacement

    Hi Dj Tranz. Congratulations on your MKZ and welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum! Nice exterior color choice (see my signature...lol) Good luck with all of your planned modifications too. I would only offer one word of advice: The ABS/ESC and other sensors operate by comparing rotational speed of the wheels on all four corners of the vehicle. Using tires that are so different in diameter on the front versus rear will lead to different wheel speeds, and therefore cause problems with those ABS and ESC systems. In addition, as drolds1 stated, a 285-35-20 wheel/tire combo will probably not fit in the wheelwell. At least not without a large wheel offset change and modification of the rear quarter panels. Again, welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum, keep us updated on your progress and good luck! P.S.- I do like drolds1's Grey Goose project too. Quite a bit!

    Welcome to the forums. I'd double-check for fitment issues before going with that wheel/tire combo. Your next mod should be to take that dealer sticker off the decklid.😄 I have a very different idea for a grey goose project.😉

    Hello all. I’m new here I’m Dj Tranz and I just got a 2017 MKZ Reserve 2.0T. FWD. I just wanted to share with you all my GREY GOOSE PROJECT. Here I will customize my Lincoln the best I can and with help from you all. I’m starting with the first mod is getting the windows tinted like quick. Here in Florida the heat and the sun will blind you so I went with 5% tint. Next I will be adding some exterior changes. Here is the list I just ordered. A rear deck spoiler, some side skirts, rear side skirts, front chin splitter, 20x9 front and 20x10.5 rear KOKO KOTURE WHEELS. Wrapped in 245-35-20 front and 285-35-20 in the rear. LEXANI LX-TWENTY high performance tires. That’s just for starters I will be getting it tuned and adding a larger Intercooler. For more horsepower. I also plan on wrapping the hood in black as well. I’m trying to find the clear tail light bars but I am having trouble finding them anywhere if someone can help me with that it would be most appreciated. Stay tuned. If you would like to assist with the build, I’m also open minded to some suggestions. Enclosed are some photos before the Tint and after as well as photos of the wheels I ordered and the stance I’m going for. Hope you enjoy.

    Looking for a Bargain?

    I’m not familiar with R-Bo Company but a quick search shows that they are still in business. Small world.

    I remember tulip time for sure. When I lived in Holland I lived right by the Side Door Party Store. Is R-Bo Company still in Zeeland? I worked for R-Bo when it first started out on a farm in Hamilton.

    Mkz customization

    Hi Jgoody, and welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum! I agree with DeviLSh. Have it vinyl wrapped, not painted (except for the grill). And have it done professionally, if you can afford it. Or you can try the wrap yourself and see if you like the outcome. There are many How-to videos available online. If it looks good, you saved some money. If not, you can take it to a shop to be professionally done, and you are only out the cost of the vinyl wrap materials you used. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Mkz customization

    I paid $400 for my lower grill trim, window frames, rear valance accent. ANother $150 for door handles and mirror bottoms. (gloss black vinyl, not paint) For the grill, you are better off buying another grill and having it stripped/painted vs "Wrapped". as the honeycomb would be impossible to wrap. and the curves of the front grill border are a bit tricky. You can mask and tape the entire car and paint stuff on the car, but Im not a fan of this method with overspray risk and the paint wont cure very well on the plastic chrome. Vinvyl is a cheap repair/touch up and can be undone as well.

    Devin's 2017 MKZ

    I see your point, if you knew me personally it would likely make more sense. Its what I do pretty much haha. I enjoy taking cars from stock to oem+ and then I start to look for something new and do it all over again. for me its about the project/transformation/personalization journey. In this case though, we are looking into different options with a baby on the way and After getting our Jag I am really in love with them Im well aware the majority of buyers prefer stock, especially the typical MKZ buyer. But I am used to selling modified cars and am perfectly content dealing with that niche market. If I need to bring this car closer to stock I can, but a lot of people getting into the 3.0tt's now are after the performance and will do most of these mods anyway. If this doesn't sell, no big deal - i love the car but would humor an opportunity for the next project.

    Zeeland Michigan. It’s Tulip Time right now so traffic is a pain. Remember the klompen dancers?

    Where in West Michigan are you? I lived in Holland and Saugutuck back in the late 80's and early 90's. Worked in South Haven.
