A friend texted me from his Tesla asking if I was on the Beltway this morning.

Nope. We have a few GB FEs around here.

This afternoon I saw just my second MME in the wild. I saw a Space White MME traveling North on Mattawoman Beantown Road in Waldorf, Maryland. I gave the driver a thumbs up but don’t know if he/she saw me. I couldn’t clearly see the driver. I hope to see a bunch more soon. Space white seems to be popular in this area as myself and at least one other local has ordered Space White MMEs.

My neighbor a few doors down now has a Red MME in his driveway; haven't had a chance to talk about it yet.

What part of MD do you live in?

Saw an Infinite Blue, either Select or CA Route 1 in Rockville MD today.

Did you purchase from Safford Ford?
No, Preston Ford, although Safford Ford is who I go to for service. Safford didn't have anything in stock. I bought off-the-lot at Preston a few weeks ago.

No joke... It might have been a MME I was contacting them about. My Edge ST was leased through Preston Ford and traded it in a few weeks ago.

If you saw the silver one when you were there, that's mine now. I waited too long on the blue one (my first choice) but it sold the day before I could get there to finalize a deal.

I liked the black one but it only had the appearance package. I opted for the technology package.

As a dealership, they seemed utterly disinterested in the Mach-E's which is why I'm using Safford.

When I was there trading in, I didn't pay much attention. It was close to close-of-business for them and they wanted me out of there, haha.

They had a few used models for sale but weren't budging on price, at all.

Safford has an Iconic Silver coming in and have been praying it gets rejected by the customer for some reason so I can scoop that up. Safford has been great to work with, even without a planned purchase.

Good luck! They performed service on my 2016 Mustang and did the PaaK update for me on this one. I am disappointed that they didn't update my car with all the updates now available while I was there, but I suppose recall services are treated differently than whatever category they fall under. The parts folks are also very friendly and easy to work with.

Are you ES VA?

That’s good to know they are taking care of you. They seemed like one of the better dealerships in the area.

We have a house in Fenwick and split our time between there and Northern VA, near Dulles airport.

Another ROCKVILLE/BETHESDA sighting:

Tuesday 11.16 @ 1:30p at the corner of Tuckerman and Grosvenor PL. I was turning left onto Grosvenor and you were turning left onto Tuckerman.

We both had Carbonized Grey I think...

I honked, you were looking the other way.
