Yes, I ordered mine with everything but the rear seat entertainment. 95 percent of my rear passengers will be dogs, they only care if the window will open or not. I'm curious to open the top also because my youngest dog likes to stand on the console and stick his head up in the X3. It has a small airfoil to block the wind and he likes to get just behind it. I've never shopped for a car where the salesmen new more, I've had the owners manual for a month looking over items people usually miss. I love to have fun asking questions and seeing if I get the BS answer or they go find out. I'm hoping to get it this week for a day, I'll find out tomorrow when my "Date Night" is. Getting some video and audio of the features and creaks and groans is at the top of my list. With the break in scheduling, I'm hoping they are tooling up for the Hybrid. Next time you get near one, have them put it beside a Navigator, so you can look at both about the same time. I think the Aviator dash has a cleaner appearance with better belt lines. JMO
I think people were referring to me for the 27 years seniority and the "give me a signing bonus and keep things as they are," That's my personal opinion, you can choose whatever you want. I think we are getting great benefits, great pay, and great bonuses. All you guys complaining about the 2 tiers, they all have a chance of turning over, the only difference is the pension, and guess what. That's irrelevant because they get a 401K plan that is making them rich with the stock market right now. Keep things as they are and give me my signing Bonus!

Metris doesn't seem to have affected Transit Connect sales which have actually increased by 28.5%
Transit and TC combined are heads and shoulders above any other van sales combination in these
segments, if there had been any real need for Transit Custom, then Ford would have added it already.
At the moment, National dealer stock of Corvette is around 4800 with about 800 of them manuals
Anyone that wants a front engine Corvette has been given the message to get one while still available
So if we see a "gold rush" of buyers this month, that might signal that many have bought their last 'vette.
Don’t use CarPlay - disable it. Start Waze on your phone then plug the phone in and it should prompt you. If not go to apps or applink in the menu and connect, Waze now replaces sync 3 nav (the nav button even changes to Waze). Works great.
Not sure if this is the best place to post this (mods, it can be moved to the powertrain section if need be)
I have a 2005 F-150 XL with the Triton 4.6L, 3.55 rear axle, only mod I've done to it engine-wise is the intake silencer removal (makes a slight whistle at times now, not quite like a turbo, though). What's the best way to increase torque and horsepower output?
I'm aware that a tuner would help a lot, but I've never messed with any of that in person, but I've read up a little on the Edge Evolution 15051..What's the best one for this engine? Where's the best place for deals on a good one?
Any input would be appreciated, thanks!
