The "sequential" turn signal thing was something new I learned. Very clever!
I saw that too, I don't understand it though. Current mustangs do something similiar.

The US government requires that turn signals be at least a certain size. The trouble with sequential turn signals is that only one segment counts towards that size. If you have individual segments that are large enough, it's fine. But giant turn signals don't look great on some cars. Not sure if the segment size on the Mach-E would have been big enough, but they sure don't seem small to me.

I like the MME's implementation. I think it's cool that it carries on that tradition of sequential taillights but adds a new twist - very much in the character of the MME in general. Also I just like that they're amber and LED.

My brother had a 1972 Mercury Cougar that had sequential tail lights. I never discoveted how that worked, although I built a test circuit using a UJT (electronic fans know what a UJT is) as a timer to switch on each bulb in the sequence. I planned to use an Arduino to add sequential lights in my 1995 Buick Regal (it had five tail lights per side) but I sold it as soon as I bought my present 2014 Fusion Hybrid.

Wooohoooo! I guess part 2 will come after Dec 15. I need to watch this while eating dinner tonight. Very exciting, Been following Alex since 2015, and was very much looking forward to his review on this. Already saw Doug Demuro post a pic on IG, looking fwd to his review as well. I wonder if Sofyan Bey got his hands on it as well over at Redline Reviews.

The fact that he bought one leads me to believe it will be a favorable review.

His range for Rt1 is incorrect - should be 300 not 270 but pretty good review

Did anyone notice the uneven panel gaps on the hood when he was showing the front grill? The left side is way off, the right side looks as it should.

I have an unconverted reservation for this exact MME (Rapid Red Metallic, X4, light interior) and seeing it up close from Alex's review has got me *really* wondering if I've made a terrible mistake by opting to reserve a GT instead.

@hybrid2bev and @trutolife27 Am I going to cry next Tuesday when the driving reviews all drop?

I stayed with the premium myself because of the light interior and black trim. Posted it on here a long time ago. But that is just my preference for myself.
