Sooooooooo glad!!!!!!!!!
I'm (still) obsessing about this - but in a Good way imho
cuz
deciding that it's a Good Thing that FLincMoCo is willing to EXPERIMENT with such a LIMITED "prescription" for a paint color
&
wondering what they might think up next!
think that a [BL] might be around the corner ... if not on the S(wic)
then on either the Continental (if diff from S(wic)) or LincStang


I'm still convinced we'll hear about the LincStang before the end of 2016 when the aluminNavi comes out

Not sure how I feel about those 21 inch wheels they look like they will be a bear to keep clean.

With Black Label, you can go in every day if you wish for a wash.

I'll probably opt for those 21 inch wheels simply because the standard BL-wheels look a bit too - well - 'ordinary' for my taste. There are other 20" wheels available on the MKX that would be more appealing but since they are not available on BL, I'll likely take the 21".

My concern isn't keeping them clean - I'm a bit more concerned about comfort and a potentially higher risk of damage. On the other hand, the 19" I have on my MKZ don't have much of a sidewall, either and so far, I'm quite happy with them...

Haha..yeah, that's true. Let's see how much they will be asking for the BL-version. I might have them clean the wheels with a toothbrush...

Both dealers are out of the way for me so that would be a hassle... besides I like cleaning my own car.

I wish Lincoln would offer a nice 5 spoke design like I had on my LS. Clean look and easy to clean!

This benefit is a bit of a joke. Unless they let you drive it through the car wash yourself, it would probably take 30 minutes for you to drop the car off, have them write it up, call a technician to take it back to the car wash, and bring it back to you. You then have the matter that any time I've had my car washed at the dealer it comes back to me soaking wet, as if they don't have a dryer or at least not one that works.

Call ahead? I mean if they are going to promote this service I would hope some system would be implemented to make it convenient. Doesn't driving the car away act as a natural blower 😄

Re: 2016 Lincoln MKX Black Label Order Guide

Thanks for posting this info! A lot of us have been anticipating some solid details on the MKX.

Reviewing the OG myself, there's nothing that really about BL that screams out to me - except for the alcantara headliner. I have a strong dislike for the patterned leather and a real disdain for those upgraded wheels so BL might not be for me.

In that case, you might also want to check out the non-BL OG I just added to the initial post...
