    Recommend me a cell phone holder

    I always liked the vent mounted magnetic holders. There are a few on the market. You need to attach a metal disk to the back of the phone or the cell phone case, but they make placing the phone on the mount very easy.

    2017 3.0T AWD mpg update

    My split is about 60% city and 40% highway and my 2017 3.0 AWD averages 18.2 on the vehicle computer.

    2017 3.0 Exhaust Cutouts

    This is awesome! Any pics of where you mounted the switch inside the car?

    Have my 2018 Reserve 3.0T AWD

    Excellent choice and great options! I have the Driver’s Package and speced very similarly to you without a sunroof. Enjoy!

    Mine was Ingot too. It pretty much looks clean even when dirty which is a plus.

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    Excellent! Things will work out okay. I had a Focus Titanium with the handling package. It was one of the best cars I have ever owned and Ford was on top of things with extending the warranty and repairing the dual clutch transmission proactively. It will be a good in between vehicle until everything pays out. What color?

    I am happy to hear they found the guy. If you don’t mind me asking, did you have gap insurance? If you did, you should come out on top of thus. Plus, the pain and suffering will be worth $$.

    Zalvern - I am so sorry to read this and see these photos, but so thankful you are okay. That looks like a very scary accident. I am impressed how well the passenger compartment stayed intact and it is a testament to the build quality on these vehicles. You were a pioneer for modifying this 3.0 MKZ and your thoughtful, colorful, and insightful posts will be missed on this forum. I wish you all the best with whatever you choose next and hope you achieve a full recovery from any pain and suffering that you are encountering. Please keep us in the loop.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    They do, and that further improves shift speed, but initial driving results in a clunky first to second shift until the transmission warms up a bit. If they could figure out a way to eliminate that issue I would use the firm shift tune all the time.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    The additional power is worth it. I find turning Advancetrac off makes the shifts quicker too. There is definitely less delay with the tune.

    Livernois tune for 3.0TT MKZ

    I have a 3.0 AWD with driver’s package and absolutely love the car. The tune adds a lot of power and improves shifting, but does not make it shift like a dual clutch transmission. However, the transmission is not lacking so much where it is a deal breaker for me. As far as I know, Livernois has not released a revision to their initial tune.

    2017 3.0 at the dragstrip

    Thanks for sharing on tires and rpm. 1500 to 1800 seems to be a sweet spot from what I hear. Still haven’t been to the track, but I hope to go and see what the tune does for me. That is a beast Thunderbird!! I love it! Beautiful car and color.

    2017 3.0 at the dragstrip

    That’s impressive and looks like a very clean launch without wheel hop. Are you on all season or summer tires? Care to share launch rpm?

    Great story and congrats! Now you have to do your dad some favors and drive him around a bit! I love those two door Grand Marquis. I always joke that there must be a manual transmission version with a 5.0 out there somewhere.
