  1. I am turning my lease in after 2 short years and have some accessories to sell! AFAIK, these should fit ALL Edge models. If it doesn't fit yours, you're weird!


    1. Nifty Catch-It Front mats in Black - Retail is $100
    2. WeatherTech 2nd row Liner in Black - Retail is $55
    3. WeatherTech Cargo Liner in Black - Retail is $100
    4. Intro-Tech Ultimate Reflector - Retail is $60 (My Review of the shade: http://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/7780-intro-tech-ultimate-sunshade-review/)

    I bought these items about 1.5 years ago and they have served their purpose beautifully. I take care of my stuff, so these things have a TON of life left. If you look at the pictures, it will be difficult to say there were used.

    • The cargo mats all have the original texture to the rubber and NOTHING has worn off.
    • If you have never heard of the Nifty Catch-It mats, you are in for a treat. They are ALL WEATHER CARPETED mats than can literally hold a gallon of water each. I personally hose them out every few vacuumings and they come out looking new again. Just take a look at the photos.

    • The carpet on the front mats look and feel great (I go bare foot as much as I can).
    • The front mats have ALL the nibs on the underside and NEVER move.
    • The stitched logos and badging (where applicable) are all in great shape and look nearly new.
    • The sunshade (Item #4) has the most "use/wear" and is still in fine/good/dandy working condition. There's a couple threads starting to come loose, but it's very minor and you can't tell unless you study it. It is still perfectly rigid with no bends or tears or anything glaring.



    Over $300 in retail, in great condition. I want to get $185 for everything (plus shipping) OR LOCAL PICKUP in Los Angeles (I can work with you possibly on this). I want to sell this as a set, but anyone interested in just pieces, post your desire. If there's enough demand to split it, I will consider.


    Thanks for looking!! Here are the pics. BTW, the edges of the WeatherTechs are just like that from being rolled up. If you buy them new from the factory, they will arrive just the same and then settle to their shape in a day or so (quicker in hot weather). That's how they looked when I received them, but they fit perfectly after they return to shape. You can see in the last photo vs. the 5th photo, the cargo liner started to return its shape by the time I got back to photographing 5 minutes later in the sun.












    I'll have to go home and take pics of the shade and its bag.

  2. Returning my Edge on April 1st 2013 (Lease end). No joke :)



    So, I'm selling my accessories. This shade is still in good condition and still kicks ass. It's about to get hot, so you definitely want one to save your dash and sweat.


    (I'm using the funds to purchase another one of these excellent shades for my new-to-me car).



    $35 shipping to your door in the CONUS. Canadians PM me to figure out if it will be cost prohibitive. Includes the crappy bag if I can find it.

  3. One thing that's not being talked about here is that the 2.5l 4cyl ecoboost motor thats in R&D is supposed to produce upwards of 330hp. And still net you 30+ mpg


    If they make that, I'm all over it.


    Why are people surprised that they are not offering a 6 cylinder version? Every maker worth it's salt is moving towards direct injection turbo charged engines with smaller displacement. Back in the day, there was no "replacement for displacement"... nowadays we call it BOOST!


    Ford will probably put in the twin scroll turbo technology refined in the Taurus SHO. Direct injection itself should add about 15% efficiency.


    2.5L would be plenty. Could be tuned to 400 HP without much effort.

  4. Look at the frontal area on an Edge versus your Altima, no comparison.


    And how do you expect to get the EPA estimated mileage when driving a good 15% faster? Remember that drag is an exponent of your velocity. Double speed = 4 times the force required.


    You want to compare that Nissan with a Ford? Try a Fusion Want to compare a Nissan to this Edge? Look at Murano.


    I haven't heard of anyone else here with black tail pipes. Obviously something is not right with your particular vehicle. Have pics?

  5. I'm with kc300c, stay away from kid haulers. Basically, away from anyone that doesn't understand how to value a car's appearance and worth. Old ladies, guys in 2 door beaters, and the SUVs that have those stickers indicating a small clan is on board.

  6. Sam, I didn't think the offset light pipe was for everyone. I just want to throw out a few additional options for folks to consider. I'm going to offer three models of my DRL upgrades. 1) Basic DRL only upgrade, 2) DRL upgrade with offset light pipe, and 3) DRL upgrade with OEM light pipe diffuser (light pipe positioned directly in front of the DRL lens to diffuse more light to out to the sides. Here are some side by side photos of the three models:



    I'm digging the offset pipe style. I think it's very unique and still has quite an OE look to it. GOOD JOB!


    only thing I can point out about it is that the light looks more intense on the bottom. Is that light pipe still being "lit" from the stock vertical firing LED or is it getting some light from the front facers?

  7. Dingo has got to be getting sick of all of the notification emails he is getting with my video posting of his DRL configuration. Sorry. I made a new set of DRL upgrades matching Dingo's setup, black painted reflector / interior and removed the light pipe allowing the LEDs to shine unobstructed. Crap, they are bright! Let me know what you think.

    Now those are bright! Nice intense light straight forward with good spill. wub.gif

  8. :happy feet: I was quite surprised today, when I received my update in the mail. It took exactly 40 minutes for the installation, and all is functioning smoooooooooooothly. Quick response times, phones (LG & IPHONE) paired quickly and work flawlessly, screens ARE more user friendly, I'm happier than a pig in shit ! :wub:




    I'm super excited now... can't wait to be happier than a pig in poop!

  9. Lol I figured it out thanks!! Just had to pull harder. I was worried about braking something



    Glad you got it done, but I would have been more worried about breaking something rather than braking something. I kid.....I kid....


    Here's a link for future reference for anyone else looking:


    Edge Front Bumper Cover Pull




    EDIT: I should add that 2011+ Edges are basically the same as pre-2011 models when doing this.

  10. I stopped by my dealer this past Saturday with a cousin looking for a car, one of the service techs saw me and said that they have the update, and if I had a hour to kill, they would install it. Sounded good, but they didn't have the SD card for the Nav, so I told him I would wait until mine came in the mail with the card (hopefully soon). He said when I get it, to stop by, and they would do the update, and check to make sure that all is functioning correctly, so this is what I plan to do. Hopefully, it won't be too long before it comes in the mail. It's ike waiting for Christmas to come !


    Feels like I've been waiting SINCE Christmas... oh wait

  11. I seen post on the OEM roof racks for aftermarket roof racks except Sport models. It does not look like the Sport has any concealed holes on the roof like the post for the others that I have read. Is there any way to mount a roof rack without major work?


    Yes, there are ways.



    Check this thread for a Yakima Q tower installation. This type requires no drilling (I assume that's what you meant by 'major work')
