The MKVII has always been a favorite of mine. I owned one of the earlier gutless wonders, but even then it was a nice, stylish ride. It would have been nice to have had one of the later, more powerful and better handling versions though. I don't remember anyone complaining about it being just a tarted up T-Bird.

Re: LINCOLN [Black Label]...what is it, what SHOULD it be?

I came upon a 2013 Order and Pricing Guide for Audi of America
which introduced me to some info about their "exclusive" (small 'e') program,
like a Bespoke Program ... here are the upholstery color choices

Lincoln, and Farley have done much brand building via press release and quite frankly it is time that they put their money where there mouth is. Audi exclusive, BMW Exclusive, JLR Autobiography, Porsche Exclusive, and MB Designo allow their customers a level of bespoke customization that is above , and beyond the norm. If Lincoln desires to be a bespoke company with a unique experience they have no choice but to offer their customers this level of customization.

Re: LINCOLN [Black Label]...what is it, what SHOULD it be?

had a thought after reading some posts elsewhere about the ordering process not going well...

imho Lincoln ought to develop a way to expedite custom orders (with WHTEVER degree of 'custom' they EVENTUALLY decide upon)
...this isn't about how the MyLincolnConcierge would communicate with customers;
this is coming up with a way to be able to guarantee your car on such'n'such week or a (similar) loaner is provided free of charge (yeah, THAT wouold make *someone* take this seriously)((no, the dealer wouldN'T pay for it...they ought to get sumthin for the million they had to invest))

...adding this to my [BLACK LABEL] list for starters
so if FLincMoCo takes a bath on it, it wouldn't be on every vehicle

Re: LINCOLN [Black Label]...what is it, what SHOULD it be?

Also missing dark green(dark jade) and dark red(cordovan) cloth seats or cloth/leather combo.

I noticed a '96 dark green Mk8 on ebay last night. The interior was a rich looking light brown leather. Nice seat design. Too bad we can't order that design on current.

I also saw on ebay an MKS in dark blue with a light tan color roof cap. It did give the vehicle some much needed character and went well with the light color interior. Should this be considered as an option? What about a painted roof (instead of the roof cap) in a different harmonizing color?? Wasn't this done on some 1950's Lincolns before the vinyl roof fad started?

That is a very Euroish tan. I like that. But I also really like the Canyon interior on the Navi and MKT

Re: LINCOLN [Black Label]...what is it, what SHOULD it be?

Now THAT'S what I like!

Piano Lacque and a full leather dash. So I guess we will see some upscale interior options on the MKZ sooner or later.

Although it really s**ks that I'll have to wait for 2 years before I can get my new MKZ, it seems I might have a chance of having access to these upgraded interiors by then..

otoh, LincolnFanFl,
by waiting 2 years it's probably a sure thing that the Nano 2.7v6 and 8speed transmission will be out too!!!
