    Just want to say thanks!

    Haha......No kidding. While not economy priced a year old Lincoln is one of the best bargains out there. I paid $15K less than what it went for just one year ago new. Lincoln CPO's are very good deals. Was happy to let the previous owner take the big depression hit.

    Metal chrome trim cleaning suggestions

    Awesome, thanks for the tip. will get some!
  4. Anyone have any suggestions on what to use on the metal chrome trim around the windows? Although very new it looks like my trim has some age imperfections. Would like to clean it up and wax. So far soap and water, detailer spray and spray wax have not helped improve its appearance. Want it to look smooth and brite

    Regular vs Premium Gas

    Just for fun I filled with mid-grade 89 to see if there would be any difference from 87. I feel no performance difference however have noticed that so far about half way though the tank and I am getting 1mpg less. Not exactly scientific of course but so far I notice no gain in spending the extra $4 or $5 per tank for the slightly higher octane #

    3.0T turbo?

    My understanding is that the twin scroll turbos like mist modern ones come on between Low 2000 to 3000

    2017 3.0T AWD mpg update

    Figured it would be a useful bit of info for those considering mpg when choosing which engine to go with. My driving habits are about 85% hwy @ about 75 to 85 mph and the remaining being city driving. After one and half weeks or so am averaging 22 mpg with a high of 23. When I was doing city only the first few days was at about 16 to 17 mpg. Of course we all want the highest mpg we can get but all things considered I am happy over all with 22. It is after all 400hp and awd. In comparison my fwd 2013 Mazda cx-5 was giving me 27 mpg. So for the modest loss in mpg I think it is more than a fair trade. Especially fair considering that we are using 87 octane. After doing the simple math our 6 twin turbo cost nearly the same to drive as the sea of turbo 4 bangers out there that produce less power and require premium gas at almost a buck more a gallon or $15+more per fill up. Not going to lie, I was kinda hoping for 25 mpg but at 22 I am above the combined windows sticker estimate and I have never enjoyed driving a car so much.

    Pulled the trigger, 2017 3.0t awd

    Thanks. Yep, he had a delta 9 which must have been the length of a school bus and then my favorite, the delta 88, Black with maroon interior. My Olds list of ownership, his 98, cutlass supreme and lastly my intrigue. Was sad when they killed off the brand. the Mkz however is the highest performance and most luxurious ride I have owned. Loving every moment so far.

    Finally a pic to share. 2017 reserve 3.0t awd
  14. 2017 reserve running sync Ver. 3.0. Android lg v30 phone when I go to sync 3 apps and search for apps, both Bluetooth or using the cable it searches and says I have no apps to add. Do have, Spotify, accuweather which I see on much of the Lincoln promo shots. And of course many other apps on the phone, yet the car found nothing but Lincoln Way app. Am I missing something really dumb as is usually the case in these situations? Seems silly to have an apps icon if only one Lincoln app qualifies. Thank you in advance for any help
