  1. I put down a deposit for EV6. Don't hate me!

    I'm gathering there may be confusion around GT-Line versus GT. GT-Line is a mid level spec, roughly equivalent to the MME Premium. The full EV6 GT is the equivalent model to the MME GT. I don't believe it is yet available in North America. EV6 GT (not GT-Line) drag race My former Ioniq 5...
  2. I put down a deposit for EV6. Don't hate me!

    I'm definitely in agreement on the sound system, and the perceived quality of the interior. As for being small, it definitely has less headroom but more real-world leg room. As for being slow, it's absolutely quicker than the equivalent MME CarWow drag race Considering the GV60 performance...
  3. I put down a deposit for EV6. Don't hate me!

    A very worthy choice, in my opinion. I'm coming from an Ioniq 5 myself and have two EV6s in the family, both the mid-level Wind trim. Regarding your EV6 points, I'll provide my 2 cents: Ride: after hearing and reading comparisons criticizing the Mach E's ride, I haven't had any issues at...
  4. Digital Rearview Mirror Installed

    I first experienced this on a modern ICE Blazer and was hooked immediately. As for the Pormido, it does quite well resolving detail around bright lights at night (not my review): Pormido D50 review with footage I tried out a few different brands and models back in 2018 when I was shopping...
  5. Digital Rearview Mirror Installed

    Yes, I think the parking mode is quite primitive on this setup. A far cry from the Korean ones that incorporate radar and pre-buffering, etc. I haven't tried the parking mode myself. If I found myself in a situation where I needed constant surveillance, I would bring along a high capacity...
  6. Enhance the Look and Feel of your Mach-E Interior!

    Frippery that I don't need. I must have it. Something tells me I should have kept the old car. Fewer temptations. Damn you all.🤬
  7. Amazon floor liners by TopMuscle: so far so good

    Hi all, I purchased some floor liners from Amazon by TopMuscle: TopMuscle 3D Floor Mats After the clipped coupon these were $50. For that price, I am very impressed. The quality seems right in line with products at three times the price: supple yet durable feeling, nicely textured. Coverage...
  8. Digital Rearview Mirror Installed

    Hi folks, I just installed a digital rearview mirror/dash cam on my car and wanted to share the result and some of my installation journey. This is a Pormido PR998. It is a 3 camera system with an LCD display that doubles as a conventional mirror and provides a touch interface. It...
  9. 274 Miles 100% Charge - 303 Should Be!

    Some manufacturers are more conservative in their range estimates than others, just as they are with HP/torque ratings on ICE cars: https://www.edmunds.com/car-news/electric-car-range-and-consumption-epa-vs-edmunds.html At the risk of fostering confirmation bias, there is a pattern to which...
  10. 274 Miles 100% Charge - 303 Should Be!

    No doubt that true winter conditions present a double-whammy in range reduction: worse conditions for battery (electrolytic strain) and increased load on the heater, especially in cars without a heat pump. However, it does seem like many out there underestimate the effect of very hot weather in...
  11. 274 Miles 100% Charge - 303 Should Be!

    It will be interesting to see if this holds true with the Mach E. With my Ioniq 5, starting a drive after parking unprotected in 95+ F degrees resulted in 40+% of total energy going to climate control for the first 10-15 minutes or so. I calculated the raw KWH consumed at the time--I don't...
  12. 274 Miles 100% Charge - 303 Should Be!

    Nothing to worry about. The range shown in the dashboard is an estimate that will update over the course of driving. It will recalculate as you drive according to changes in weather, traffic conditions, wind, elevation changes, and driving habits, etc. If you drive moderately in relatively...
  13. 07/25/22 Build week chat

    My AWD Route 1 arrived in Miami a bit ahead of its 9/19-9/25 estimate, though of course way past its original "20 weeks+" estimate back in December. It appears to have squeaked through without needing the axle recall. Happy to have it home. Hoping for a quick delivery for all who are still...
  14. Step-in height--for little passengers

    Thanks everyone. It's definitely true that he seems to grow so quickly. I just have to make peace with having a higher step-in/over height and a lower duck-under height compared with my beloved Ioniq 5. That puts a bit of a pinch on both climbing in as well as carrying him in if he's...
  15. Step-in height--for little passengers

    Hello all, New member, long time lurker here expecting a Mach E delivery in a few weeks: Route 1 AWD in grabber blue. Definitely looking forward to seeing it. I'm familiar with EV life and have test driven the car before, though it was quite a few months ago. One critical thing for me is the...
