two good videos here. Enjoy your morning cup of joe and have a good weekend.
It‘s so painful to hear sales people spew incorrect information. The Mach-E starts at $30k? The fully loaded version goes up to $50k? It’s front wheel drive? Just once I’d like to meet a dealer that knows more about the cars they sell than I do.

You're definitely right. With the shutters open all the time it's going to look kinda stupid. Ford should have supplied an honest to goodness grill for hot climate customers.

I mean look. I've been seeing @Mach-E VLOG apparel like everywhere now. He has that market cornered.

If we act fast, you and I can corner the Mach-E chrome grills for hot climates aftermarket. Let's do this.
My wife does like to modify her car and your chrome grill reminds me of her latest addition!

(We went to a drive-in concert for Halloween and went overboard with the "car costume" part.)

He's probably counting state and federal credits. NY has a $2000 one, and the fed is $7500. That makes the base MME (before D&H) $42,895 - $7500 fed - $2000 state = $33,395. And a Premium with AWD and ER $54,700 - $7500 fed - $2000 state = $45,200. So he wasn't too far off. Still though, "Starting in the mid-30's after tax credits" would have been a more honest way to say it.

I think the only credit involved is the one you’re giving him too much of. From my experience, it’s far more likely that he’s just a typical car salesman that doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Fantastic details. Thank you.
+10 points for a Berkey Creamery grocery bag!! 😎

Regarding the headlight moisture, that amount looks perfectly normal. Given the humid weather, and the fact that LEDs don't generate as much heat as a halogen, I'm not surprised some of it is condensing in there. The headlamp housings are vented to the atmosphere and I doubt they'd ever get any worse than that.
Instruction manual says this is normal.

Why is there condensation in the headlamps?
Headlamps have vents to accommodate normal changes in air pressure. Condensation can be a natural by-product of this design. When moist air enters the lamp assembly through the vents, there is a possibility that condensation can occur when the temperature is cold. When normal condensation occurs, a fine mist can form on the interior of the lens. The fine mist eventually clears and exits through the vents during normal operation.

Moisture in Headlight
Not only did I find it in the car being driven around by the regional Ford reps two weeks ago (same one as yesterday and today's ride alongs) but I also see it in this IB Mach E that was one of the two stationary cars for the Tour. Not so much, but still there. I guess this one has been driven in the rain a bit. No surprise as it's rained much of the last 2 days.

Yep! I also saw that if moisture condenses into droplets and runs, drips, or streaks, then that's an abnormal amount, and the headlight probably isn't venting properly. (Warranty issue). Fine mist is all good in my book.
