Hey mmoretti. Sorry I have not checked the forums in awhile.
I do not know if the BL cars go through a different quality check than the standard lineups. I remember watching a video that the Lincoln vehicles go through a "Luxury Quality Inspection" at the end of the assembly line.
I agree with that the interiors are VERY nice. Plus the BL had my Blue!
Notorious Blue is much more attractive than that sapphire blue.
The leather is very soft and top notch as expressomac stated. I heard that this is the same leather used for Ferraris. Plus the leather designs on the seat and doors and exotic wood trims really set BL apart from the standards.
Also, very much love the Alcantera suede on the headliners. I was at the big car shows at Pebble Beach this summer and all the top dollar high end brands have these.
One additional little thing such as the Black 'C' that I like is the SYNC screen in the middle says 'Black Label' when start and turn off the engine.
As far as issues with my car since I bought in May 2015, I have not had very many major issues. I had the Sirius antennae issue fixed and no issues since. I wish the seats cooled better but this might be the standard. I will have them look at it when I have my first schedule maintenance.
The biggest I had occurred last week when I was leaving work. Sometimes when I plug in my iPhone into the USB port to charge it would not charge or would connect and disconnect to charge every 1 second repeatedly. That happened and I kept unplugging the cord to the phone to try to get it to stay connected and charge. My SYNC system and screen then froze. It would not even switch the screen to the rear camera when I reversed. Good thing my dealership is literally 2 minutes from my work. So when I started to drive there the SYNC system went black. The dealership had to reset SYNC by unplugging the battery and it has worked since.
Other than those few things I am happy *fingers crossed* no other issues have came up.
As expressmac pointed out all the perks of BL ownership, I plan to use the pick up and drop off of service for my first scheduled maintenance. I plan to have it detailed for free sometime this fall.
There is a dedicated service rep just for BLs. So it is nice to get that special and personalized attention. I try to go once a month for the free car washes. I get complement from the Lincoln reps on how nice my car is. They get my car in and out fast.
I have yet to use the lifestyle/culinary experience. I plan to do that within the next month or two. Expressmac, can you confirm if this just a once and done deal? Do you know the limitation details?
I do agree that I wish they would expand these lifestyle perks more.
I think there was one other person on here who just got her BL "Precious". Let me know if you any other questions
