I ordered my 2017 Z today after a long period of reviewing, waiting, test driving, waiting, test driving, negotiating, and more waiting!

 

Specs are as follows:

2017 3.0T AWD

Diamond Black

Driver's Package

Tech Package

Luxury Package

Climate Package

Cargo Net

 

I am super excited to have something locked in and hope it is built sooner than later!  Will update as things progress.

Congrats Airflow. Hope she shows up soon for you and just in time for spring. Got your VIN yet?

 

Mine should be here within a week which will be about 8 weeks from when the order went in.

 

Would have loved the driver's package but it can't be had with Burgundy Velvet -- at least up here in Canada.

 

Have Tech, climate, mult-contour, revel audio(base) and panoramic. Looking forward to it.

 

Cheers

C.

Great news, Airflow! Big CONGRATS! Now you really have something to look forward to after tax season:)

That is going to be an absolutely beautiful car!

Like me, I see you didn't order a sunroof. Headroom issue? That was my reason.

P.S. About a month ago you had mentioned a monthly lease payment amount. Did your deal improve since then?

Congratulations Airflow, and excellent choice on paint job color! You're going to love it, and hope it serves you well!  :2thumbs:

 

A shame Burgundy Velvet and Midnight Sapphire are limited in options. Those were my other favorite colors behind Diamond Black. But factory production with paints is weird at times...

Yep true enough but it's still a Z and will be a treat.

Congratulations! You're gonna love it. It's an awesome car.

 

I ordered mine right around the end of last year. It was built 2/1/17 and arrived at the dealership 2/24.

Thanks all! I appreciate the good wishes and insight. No VIN yet. When I do get it, how do I use it to track things?

 

I find I don't use sunroofs that often and skipped it because I wanted to save a little weight that high up on the vehicle.

 

Yes, it turned out Lincoln added BMW as a conquest brand so I received an extra $1,000 credit which lowered the payment about $30 a month! I was psyched!

Still no VIN 5 weeks after dealership placed order. Does anyone know if there are any issues causing delay?

Have you spoken to your dealer?  You can also call the Lincoln Concierge for a progress report.

I spoke to my dealer a week ago and at the time he said he thought I would have a VIN this week. I'll try the Concierge next. Thanks!

Just heard from my salesman yesterday and they have received a VIN and stated delivery will be between May 4th and 9th. That will put me right at 8 weeks from submission of order to delivery. Getting excited!!

That makes it exactly 7 weeks from dealer placement of order to receipt by dealer. Great job Lincoln!

Thanks guys. I will definitely post pics. I can't wait to get rid of this harsh riding and buzzy BMW X1 and into a comfortable and powerful car with all the features of modern cars today.

I certainly hope you'll enjoy it! Especially since not many went all the way for the full performance package.

 

With the 2018 sales brochure being shared, it seems Diamond Black Metallic will be a one year eexclusive color. Just a more gem feeling you can enjoy about your new MKZ.
