Thanks M. Step one. I figured out the Google Map send to car......that's big where I come from.

I did purchase the tire/wheel protection.

da

I'm wondering what there will be to look forward to after our new arrival (Saturday) and the honeymoon period to follow?
We debated the tire/wheel protection but things were pretty stretched, as it is. Instead, I went out a bought a floor magnet to periodically sweep our gravel driveway for nails, which always seem to plague me. I probably regret not getting it but hopefully not!

Congrats on your new X. It certainly is an interesting ride. I decided to go with the plan. If a nail gets into the tire the tire has to be replaced....not plugged or patched. I have 2 floor magnets by way of Harbor Freight. Good tool to have .

Tip 1: To make the right mirror move downward automatically so you can see the curb when you back up, the mirror adjusting button has to be in the left side position. Otherwise the function is off.

Tip 2: If you push the interior light button (while the light is on) for more than 3 seconds, it will shut off and stay off even when you open the door.

Lotta little things to remember. How about....hit the Bright head light stalk after the power is turned off to keep the headlamps on for 40 seconds.

Or you can set the pathway light option for 40 seconds and it will do it for you automatically. Congrats on your new ride.

Didn't have chance to get good shots but I will. This is it for now. I'm enjoying the color combo. I ordered it sight unseen.

They look much better in real life, it more of a brownish orange color in real life, but I still think the Mojave is a better color if one wants a brown interior.

I think it looks great. They had a 328 in this color combo when we picked up ours. As I said before, Chestnut was a close second choice.
