Haha ok which lights? About all I was looking for was the blue one in Turbo so I get the good stereo and the smart(ish) cruise. I'm a little bummed it's not truly stop and go but that's fine. Still light years ahead of what I had.

Well, they didn't fix the HUD but, they had to order a part so I told them let's just do that Veteran's Day weekend so I can bring it afternoon of Friday and they have the rest of the day and all day Saturday and Monday to get it done.

Just looked at the window sticker, guessing it's the "Led Head Lights, Tail lights, and Fog lights" listed as the last item. I do like the tail lights and headlights, haven't really seen the fog lights on yet.

Damn! That color is Electric!
Happy Trails!

FLH :cool:
Yeah I'm a sucker for blue. My wife's Avalanche is almost the exact same color, I tried to find a Mustang for my kid in the grabber blue but I found such a nice deal on a Silver one I had to buy it. He's had it 3 years with no issues so it ain't blue but it's reliable!

I call that Blue "Cobalt Blue". My first blue ride was a BMW Motor Cycle. Then I had a Suzuki Forenza of the same color.

I added the wheel covers and the RED accent stripe.

Oh, I should mention it had another electrical issue after they replaced the HUD, but it was a stretched too tight connector they had to give just a bit of slack too. Once that was fixed it's been 100%

Glad to hear!

I’ve been looking at getting a 2020 EX Designer Edition because of the option package and price.

However, I’ve seen several GT turbos for almost the same price because of dealer markdowns, so now I’m considering one.

Any thoughts or concerns since you’ve purchased yours?

I’m mostly concerned about the DCT and how it performs in everyday driving. I’ve had a DCT before in a Focus Titanium, and it did a decent job once the clutch packs were broken in.

This will be my daily driver, and, while the turbo is nice, it’s not really why I’m considering the GT. I’m primarily interested in FINALLY having a heated steering wheel and I also prefer factory premium speaker systems (my days of aftermarket sub boxes are long in the past). I also would like to have a sunroof. ?

Honestly, if the EX had these three things, I’d just get one of those. I’ll never understand the “logic” behind manufacturer build packages. ?‍♂

The DCT is a little lurchy, honestly putting it into sport mode makes it, in my opinion, more tolerable. It's not that bad either way, but I'm not that picky, but I do a lot of stop and go commuting and still, it doesn't bother me that much.

I went from a strong dual amplifier, roughly 1500 watt system to this, and other than the teeth rattling bass I'm not missing it. I am adding a spare tire well sub very soon to give a bit more bottom end but overall, SOLID radio.

I bought the turbo just for the smart cruise, and while I'm a little meh about it only going down to 5mph rather than full on stop & go, it's livable.

My main complaint? Lack of memory seats, if my wife drives it I hate having to re-do my seat position. Minor quibble.

Thanks for all of the details. It definitely sounds good to me. ?
