  1. EV tax credits in Build Back Better Act - income limit?

    I'm in agreement with some folks there shouldn't be an income limit. Just saw an article that you need to make nearly 400k to buy any home in the bay area. It's a mess there honestly in terms of housing (and pretty much anywhere in CA) and for folks wanting to raise a family, a house tends to...
  2. Will we ever get sentry mode equivalent? Does anyone have a good reason why not?

    I was looking at the BlackVue and like their cloud uploading and live view a lot more than the Thinkware one since it seems like the BlackVue from a video I saw is a lot faster/further developed for that piece (cloud/uploading/live view). The price of the Blackvue LTE stuff was really...
  3. Will we ever get sentry mode equivalent? Does anyone have a good reason why not?

    We have cameras around our house. I think there has been studies that show cameras, like a cop is more a deterrent than anything else. Sorta like those alarm signs and alarms in general. You see a cop on the highway, literally EVERYONE stops going 85+ and back to 65-70 MPH. It just makes...
  4. Buying a MME before 12/31/21 without an order and ADM - Mission Impossible 2021?

    Anything is possible, boils down to how much time/$$ do you have to waste? I just checked my area and there are 3 "Premiums" close to me. All are Special Orders so I assume, are spoken for already. Selects tend to be very common. I now see a ribbon that some are "Dealer Ordered" so you can...
  5. Everyday Driver: Mach-E vs. ID.4 vs. Model Y comparison video

    I considered the ID.4, but coudn't live with no/limited 1-pedal driving, the infotainment system seems poorly thought out/even more laggy, no back window up/down buttons, no frunk. The car felt to me just not very well thought out for the things I considered deal breakers. I agree any EV will...
  6. Ford aims to double EV production capacity in 2 years, Farley says

    The Fisker Ocean looks on paper, very very strong. https://www.forbes.com/wheels/news/2023-fisker-ocean/ A Fisker Ocean Ultra at $49,999 - $7,500 fed - any state incentives is maybe $40k. It sports: Dual Motor AWD 340 mile range 360 surround camera 0-60 in 3.9 secs 250 kW charging I think I...
  7. All I want for Christmas is.. a functional front trunk button.

    Did that Apple exec start yet? Really hoping the s/w side of things gets improved more since that seems to be the most glaring issue on the MME. Watched a video on parking assist and can't see anyone wanting to use that...
  8. Ford Options - Dealer trying to tack on fees?

    Exactly, like most companies/jobs, no one really knows how any other department works. Like asking a heart surgeon what's wrong with my feet (not feet, but I had a real life experience with doctors criticizing each other saying the other doctor has no clue since it's not their specialty). I'm...
  9. Ford Options - Dealer trying to tack on fees?

    Some sample Options docs posted earlier states: "Prepayment: If you pay off your debt early, you will not have to pay a penalty." My guess is the dealer either doesn't know or maybe that's a straight lease? I think Ford Options is with Ford Credit, not the dealership.
  10. DMG Mach-E Premium Review/Walkthrough

    More and more people will go Electric in time...So glad I barely ever buy gas.
  11. Sell mine and buy another?

    Yeah, in your case, I think once you want to switch to a diff version, it's an easy decision since you're not 100% happy with your current version. Paying more is not even that big a deal since you're getting more features you want. Crazy what used car prices are and I assume you can live...
  12. Sell mine and buy another?

    If the Build Back Better bill doesn't pass with changes to EV limits, delays in production 'could' (probably still not likely) push new orders over when Ford surpasses 200k units produced (this could be Sep 2022 or Dec 2022 though since it's the 2nd quarter after hitting that number). Still, if...
  13. Always plug in in your garage?

    Very true, if we only owned an EV. I'd take our ICE and not sweat it if I had to go 300+ miles. That won't work for everyone of course.
  14. Help me pick a dash cam

    I see this for $199 on a third party site. I was curious, with EVs having such a large battery, why do these cams have battery packs/etc? Are internal electronics still forced to use the 12V? Another brand I saw was BlackVue which seems to have quicker/smoother video if you want to monitor...
  15. Purchases in November 2021: Free connect Charger in MA & RI

    I've been in a position where a "Customer Survey" directly affects my pay/livelihood so yeah, I'd think a bit more before really punishing someone since it could cost them their job or at least, putting food on the table a lot of times. That might have been the intent, but if it's something...
  16. Always plug in in your garage?

    Yeah, I plan to just leave it plugged in...I think every study has stated Lithium Ion batteries like 50-60% best?
  17. What value are dealerships adding to the purchase experience?

    Pretty much all the cars I've purchased, I didn't test drive (only test drove 1 out of like 6?). I suppose to me, if "I" think it's not this or that or great, it's a "me" problem since other's, more knowledgeable have already put it through it's paces. I just adjust honestly and live with it...
  18. What value are dealerships adding to the purchase experience?

    Was always surprised by the order fee where if you cancel, you just lost $250. The cheapest Model Y is now $59k (was $49k at the start of this year I think). A White MY with the cheapest wheels shows Oct 2022 delivery. Guess people really want it (or need it) to be willing to pay that much...
  19. Always plug in in your garage?

    I think I'm just going to go with 60-80% (which translate to 50-70% actual or so) since I don't need 100% (or even 90% honestly). I think even though it's in a manual, it's not perfect because manual/manufacturer creators look at everyone's use case. If you don't need the range due to work...
  20. "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    Yeah, it's on order currently. Guess I'll have to see if I can enter X-plan on that email link to complete my purchase. I'm assuming you didn't do X-plan?
