2018 Black Label Continental Ordered
After driving the Mercedes S and SL classes for the last 30 years, I have decided to try the new 2018 Lincoln Continental Black Label.
Exterior is Chroma Elite Copper with the Thoroughbred interior. For 2018, only three package options, everything else is standard. Ordered all three options.
Hoping to have a new and fun experience.
Hello to all.

Very cool to have someone switch from an S class to the Continental. I would love to hear your thoughts on the differences between the two once you take delivery. Congrats on the purchase!1989 Chrysler LeBaron 66,000 miles

I first saw the car visiting friends in Newport Coast at the Lincoln Experience Center in Newport Beach at Fashion Island. That is major mall and having this huge presence filled with various Lincoln cars was impressive.
I did get a chance to ask a lot of questions and to drive the car. I was very pleasantly surprised given this car is about half the cost of my Mercedes. My overall initial impressions was that given the cost of this car, it was am amazing car. I certainly did not think the cost difference in the car was representative of the comparison. I thought, at least initially, that the Lincoln Continental was close enough to my S class that it was worth a chance. After 30 plus years of only European cars, I thought this was a good time, and a great car to try out. My wife, who also drives a European car, she has a BMW 7 Series Individual, also was impressed.
When the car comes in the next 2-3 months, I can give you detailed impressions because I really didn't get a chance to look at the details of the car, like what are the knobs made of, etc.
Does anyone actually know yet what the production schedules are. I am used to having a time slot and production date with the European cars, but it appears Ford is not on that plan.

The change-over from Continental 2017 to 2018 model year can be seen in post #2 here: https://lincolnforums.com/forums/thr...ln-Continental This may give you something to talk about with your dealer.
Good luck with your order and speedy delivery.

The only question I am still trying to get answered is in the Order Guide, it says the Chrome Belt line integrated advanced electric door handle is changed. No one seems to know anything about that, so I am trying to track that down.
I am looking forward to seeing lots of pictures when your car comes.

I thought you might like to see what they are saying over at the Mercedes forum about my going to a Lincoln Continental Black Label after having a Mercedes for so many years. I have been an active participant in this forum for many years, and I got a laugh out of some of the comments I am receiving.
