    I get it back tomorrow, it looks like I left that part out of my previous post. I didn’t think about going darker than legal and leaving the sunroof uncovered, that would probably buy you a shade or two past legal.

    I went with 3M ceramic on my Navigator this time and all windows excluding sunroof and windshield was $600. My previous car I had Huper Optik and it was great, I expect the 3M to be equally awesome. It’s impossible to research and get truly unbiased opinions, same with the ceramic coatings. I’ve found anything auto performance or appearance related ends up in a rabbit hole of frustration and in the end you end up trusting your gut and basing the decision on the person doing the install or selling the products. I may be mistaken but I think the Navigator windshield and sunroof have UV protectection, there is clearly something different when looking at them vs the untreated front door windows.

    Just picked up my Navigator from the tint, paint correction, and ceramic coating guy. It’s hard to tell too much difference from these pictures but in person there is a huge difference in the paint having the correction and coating applied. I didn’t realize how many imperfections there could be with a car built 3 weeks ago but there were swirls in the black areas and the paint had weird imperfections as well. Now everything looks like glass and the coating makes its super slippery. The tint will have the annoying haze until it properly cures but overall I’m happy with the cost and final product. I also had xpel clear bra installed along the running boards and black trim area around the back bumper and inside the door sills. The next picture I should post is a empty wallet now that purchase and extras and a tank of gas have all been paid for lol. 9997515C-1F1A-4C14-88FF-828419C266F3.jpeg B7BB7616-B73F-45AD-AAA5-1A88E444FAF3.jpeg 0B5FA68A-545F-459B-BFF8-F1F53FDBDD9C.jpeg 14634AD0-1D47-43FF-B13F-D3DCAA126C6D.jpeg

    It gets way easier the more u use it. I do like the fact that its not in the way when using the wireless charger and hvac ctrls. Is it weird i like running my fingers around the dial and buttons?

    I’m still getting used to the dial shifter. However after driving Expedition all day yesterday, I drove our 2015 F-150 and my hand was prepared for dial not the center console shifter. Lol.

    My biggest challenge is when I jockey the Expedition in a specific parking spot, going from R to D but I rotate it into P because my brain didn’t engage. . Total user issue nothing wrong with Expedition.


    On a separate note, on my way to the snow, as we were driving through the Salt River Canyon, I noticed a 1st, 2nd and 3rd gen in a row....my sister was driving hers- the 3rd gen. My son captured a picture of it since I was driving.
    I think my sister wants to update hers. I have to take Mad Max over for a side by side comparison later. More to come
