    Sand interior is now available with the dark (ebony) wood panels. I guess this is in response to popular demand.

    ^^^ Nice, Sobe!
    glad they're finding a way to make beige NotBoring!
    &
    That new grille is nice.
    Tho I still like the std. chrome version, it's good to offer choices & it's Good that SYNC is Std.
    So
    next, offer that grille as an opt on more ext colors
    then
    maybe add a HID HL and LED fog option
    and
    a chrome lower fascia/bumper option based on the 60's Continental style (Ford datainers: sketch available upon request)
    &
    don't wait for MCE's or even the next model year.

    Think haute couture and have fall/winter and spring/summer 'collections'.
    just keep it coming!

    heck, Lincoln could sponsor the next Project Runway (or does Saturn have that 'sewn up' >.< sorry)... just DoN't let the 'designers' anywhere near the interior... 'cept for maybe a one-off charity thingie - OR have the finalists each do one Lincoln vehicle??? Hmmm.... dataminers, you listening?

    did you notice the buttons are GREY instead of silver?

    Below: 07 interior:


    Could this be a new Lincoln interior direction?

    Very good and interesting catch. You can barely see it there but the Temp buttons in the HVAC controls now are surrounded by a chrome ring that visually make a huge improvement.

    ^^^ maybe they just thought the grey buttons went better with the dark wood?

    It'll be interesting to see if they're taking the refinement to the level of having color co-ordinated buttons

    I think you might be confusing "refining" with "cost cutting".

    Mercury is alive and well. It's called Lincoln.
