    My dealer did not have any drive-able Continentals due to recall so he bought one from another local dealer with 82 kilometers and not now covered by recall. I saw it last Sunday when dealership was closed and found out on Monday that my ordered car would take another 2 months for delivery. Started thinking about cancelling my order and going with this one. It has the moonroof and tech package so more money, but it is the right colour (white) and interior (cappuccino) so decided with my wife to go for it. My dealer had no problem with the swap and that was yesterday (Wednesday), so agreed a price and expect to pick it up today if everything goes well.

    Yes Sal, very pleased with my new car. I set the driver seat and stored in memory which was surprisingly easy and very comfortable with the 24 way seats. The drive home is only 5 kilometers and that was enough after spending most of the afternoon with the salesman showing me the ropes. I thought it had the engine stop feature at red lights so I wanted it turned off but the Continental does not have this, perhaps because of the turbo. More to learn Friday morning when we do the park assist features. Everything is working as expected except for a fan noise coming from the rear parcel shelf. Neither the salesman or I have seen anything on this, assume it is an extractor fan but will have to research it.

    The ride is fabulous in Comfort mode in Drive, the S trans button is set to Normal mode. Visibility is excellent through all windows and the rear window is not restricted by headrests which are power folded down. Hardly touched the throttle and was up to merging speed on freeway. Engaged the cruise that tracks the car in front and it worked surprisingly well. The car in front exited and my speed picked up gradually to be the exact right distance from next car in front. Nice handling on the sweeping exit curve and easy acceleration up the steep hill to the ridge. Stopping and starting are so smooth and brake modulation is effortless, the car just slows at the right pace for me. Excellent vision in reverse but the parking camera is easy to follow, and there is an overhead shot to make entering my garage even easier, so I just watched the screen. The camera technology is much more useful (better) than I expected.

    I guess it will be this weekend to put some mileage on.

    Yes, and on the road too. There are so many things to learn and keep track of. The ambient lighting is nice, not distracting but the cabin is not in darkness. Headlamps are the HID type and they light the road well, too much traffic for the automatic high beams to light but 80 kph (50 mph) is fine for the dipped beam reach. Adaptive cruise is nice and keeps a good distance for people to cut in front without any problem at all. Approaching a traffic light with cars just moving off and the cruise control braked my car and I wasn't expecting it. Lots to learn with this car.

    Haven't posted your pictures on the sticky yet. How is the car doing? Are you enjoying the ride? Been too silent since you posted last. Waiting to hear from you!

    Wow, it sounds really awesome. It's exactly what Lincoln owners have been looking for since the Town Car was canceled. I kinda wonder if we'll start seeing Continental limousines... In any event, I can't wait to get in one of these and see what it's like...
