    New 2019 MKZ Reserve I owner

    The car looks/is fantastic . So you are going to install the clear bra yourself , I do have the 3M on my 2016 installed by certified installers , hood , bumper ,wheel arches ,lights and mirror for $1050 , had it on the 13 and now 16 , always looks good never a problem .. Please tells us how it was installing this yourself , did you ever do this before ? The best of luck with the new wheels !

    Last coat new synthetic .

    I too like to try the new products that just came out , the thing I like about this is the easy of use and great result , you spray on car or micro towel wipe on turn over towel slight buff and boom ! goes easy on my shoulders .

    Last coat new synthetic .

    Ok after two shoulder operations I was ready for something like this . You get the Last coat wash and then after drying you spray on the last coat finish . This goes on very easy and with light buff it looks spectacular , supposed to last 24 weeks but it is such fun and easy to use I will be doing it more than that . The shine is comparable or better than Optimum opti coat ( 2 years ) but not as durable .

    Chrome Mirror Covers

    Or you can have them wrapped with similar color as your car , either way wraps are good looking and last a long time . Mirrors wrapped should not be too expensive .

    Brake job .

    At Quick for lane oil change ( Holyoke MA ) they said I needed rear brakes at 325 00 . Went online and found Ford coupon but Quick lane said this was for Ford only . Called my local dealership ( Johnson Pittsfield MA ) they said they will honor coupon , back rotors and pads replaced for 232.50 , I left there feeling good !

  10. Hi , I have a 2016 MKZh and so far the only controls I found are on the side of the front seat for the lower back , so I am wondering where the adjustments are on the screen . I too like this car it is my second one .

    Best way to fix small chips

    I just discovered that by going on the Dr Colorchip page and getting your paint code then go to ebay and order the kit you can save shipping charges .

    Best way to fix small chips

    Dr. Colorchip is the best and perfect color match . . For deep chips put on then next fill it again next day , while not perfect it will make chips tolerable .

    Dash Does Not Line Up With Door Panels

    Eurythmian , First I think the car is one of most stunning MKZs I have seen , I like that you framed the front license plate and is that a thin pinstripe ? I am a big fan of the 2013-16 front grill , I think Lincoln got too conservative when they redesigned the 17 model but that's another story . I have owned two Zs , the dash on the 2013 was a little off yours is way off in my opinion , but my 2016 is perfect and I was looking for it when I purchased the car as Lincoln certified used . I think a lot of the 13 models had this problem due to the fact it was the first of the new redesign . The fact is on a car this expensive that is unacceptable workmanship given that it is something you will see every time you get behind the wheel , of course over time it will not be that big a deal giving the fact that there is nothing you can do to make it better and over all the car looks fantastic , we learn to live with much worst things then this . Best of luck with your Z .
