I'll be watching for your review. 8 months is surely a long wait due to the chips. Hope you see it before the end of the month. You doing well?

Glad you're both doing well, Tim. My wife and I are finally both 100%. It took almost 3 weeks. We were maybe 75% after the 10-day quarantine, but had nagging coughs up until this morning.

kaz-

I got the call from the dealer the day before Halloween and traded in my shit box Focus EV. I was glad to see that turd go down the road.

The GT PE is a lot of fun to drive. Not as fun as the supercharged Coyote Shelby, but in some ways it's more fun. I've never driven an AWD vehicle before and with 634 foot pounds, it launches out of the corners. It's a better vehicle than say a 13/14 GT500, but not on par with the 2020 GT500. It's incredibly smooth on most roads and the magnetic suspension works very well.

I've put just over 1000 miles on it so far, with the vast majority of those from going to and from golf courses- which is appropriate given it's golf cart roots haha.

The infotainment is pretty good, and honestly I haven't delved too deeply in it yet. The seats are great on the GTPE and the interior is better than any Ford I've ever been in, and probably any vehicle I've been in since I don't spend much time in nice cars. My friends and I all primarily drive pickups.

It turns out that I got a deal by paying MSRP as I think I could flip it for a profit if I had to. I bought the car for a pretty limited use case of commuting to work and back and going golfing once a week. It'll save me the 45 minutes a day by playing the stupid liberal HOV lane games, and at my internal hourly rate of my free time being valued at a few hundred bucks an hour, it will more than pay for itself in my mind.

Since I have no idea when I'll be heading back to the office, it's just golfing and a weekly trip 10 miles each way to my folks. I still drive the Super Duty if I'm taking the dog to a friend's house or to the dog park.

The Mach-E is pretty heavy and you can feel the bulk, but the suspension does a great job keeping everything in check. Overall it's a great vehicle.
Glad you are enjoying. Personally i cant stand it. But im not the buyer you are. So glad you are happy with it.
