Bradley Young posted a topic in Welcome Forum!Hey Fellow Fordies! We just bought our 2013 Ford Edge Sport about 2 months ago - found her at Carmax with 21K certified miles on her. She's beautiful, in near mint condition, barely a mark on her, like the day she rolled off the assembly line in Windsor, Canada. Interior is perfect as well. Apparently, the family who owned her just didnt drive her very much! Carmax wanted to sell me their "Maxcare" extended warranty, but after reading some rather negative reviews online, I opted to go to a respected Ford dealership near our home, South Bay Ford, and bought a Ford Premium Care 5 year/75K miles Bumper To Bumper warranty. First thing I did was take her there and had them install a new Electronic Throttle Body (Im sure you guys know about this issue, scary!). Then, I had them do a full coolant flush (preventative maintenance = happiness with any car, but especially with a Ford Duratec engine - we all know about the water pump issues), and an oil change. Lastly, I had them install some cool OEM Ford emblems I found on E-Bay that the seller custom paints in any color you want...we got a pair in Tuxedo Black to match the body color - she looks Bad-Ass! I'll try to attach some pix. I look forward to being part of the group! Best, Bradley Young
Nic Williams posted a topic in Welcome Forum!My name is Nic, About a month ago my wife and I welcomed our second baby, a daughter into the world. We already have a 22 month old son, and 2 car seats plus gear did not fill in my small luxury / sport car. Last Friday I took delivery of a shiny new 2013 Ford Edge Sport in White Platinum Tricoat, with every option available and then some. It took about 2 months to get me one, since they couldn't find any in the entire state of California, and had to make me one at the factory (ironically that was my job when I was getting my 2 college degrees). I had the dealer install HIDs, since some idiot decided the Sport model wouldn't be getting these, even though the Limited model has them. I also had the dealer install the lighted door sills, since my last car was lowered and I don't want to trip getting in and out of the ES, not to mention it looks cool and will match the interior lighting scheme. The dealer also tinted the windows with limo tint for me. The first night I had the ES I took off the front license plate bracket and rear license plate. I don't have my permanent one yet, but I'm using my personalized license plate (Save the Oceans!) with my "nicname" on it, and a real carbon fiber license plate frame, since that is a good contrast for the white car. I also replaced every bulb with superwhite LEDs, since I hate the yellowish OEM bulbs. I just ordered the dome light and puddle light upgrades from http://www.daytimebrightlites.com/, and I'll be installing his new version front bumper LED / light bars when they are ready in a few weeks. I also installed a K&N drop in air filter. I want a CAI, but Ford likes to void warranties, so I didn't want to risk that. I'm thinking of dropping this thing a bit with an Eibach ProKit, but I'm not sure how it will ride. My wife didn't like the stiff ride of my last car, but I loved it. With two kids, I want it to have a comfortable ride so I don't wake them up or jostle them around going over a bump. Has anyone done this yet? This thing sits too high (and has a bit wheel gap) and the front end jumps up when you hit the gas, that's uber-annoying to me. I also have silicon covers for my key fobs, because I didn't want them getting scratched up. I bought blue for the main one, and silver / gray for the spare. You can find them on Amazon.com pretty cheap in about every color. I also have some emblem blackouts coming soon. I ordered them with the other stuff before I even had the car, but the guy apparently was sick and slow to ship. I used to work for Ford and my father and grandfathers both retired from there, but I wanted to black out the emblems because it's dated. I think the word "Ford" will be in brushed aluminum, and the rest will be all black. I'm pretty excited about that. I think it'll be here tonight. I have pics on FB, but I'll post some here when I get better ones. I haven't had a chance to take really good ones yet, and I would wait for all the mods to be done anyhow. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else has done.
