Just got home and performed basic setup. Here's my report:

1) Dealer experience was perfect. They had two errors on the order and rectified both in my favor as soon as I pointed them out. They had the standard doc fee instead of the $100 max allowed by X-plan. Had the registration price listed as standard - BEVs are $100 more. They adjusted the doc fee to $100 and ate the BEV registration upcharge!

2) Love the car - one pedal mode was enabled (didn't know it until I drove away) and after the first abrupt stop, it seemed very natural.

3) No buzz or humming from the display. I had my wife (her hearing is better than mine) put her ear as close as she could get to both screens and she couldn't hear anything.

4) No discernible wind noise up to 50 MPH.

5) Fit & finish is as good or better than any car I've owned. Front passenger front vertical door gap is ever so slightly narrower at the top. Not going to worry about it.

6) Activate the car in the Fordpass app - flawless.

7) Connect to home wifi - flawless.

8) Connect Apple Car Play - flawless.

9) Setup Homelink for garage door - flawless.

Charge level is sitting at 92% so I haven't played with that yet.

Have not attempted PAAK yet.

Nice car. Glad to see your dealer did right by you too. Hopefully, we hear a lot more of these types of delivery reports!

Update after driving around town 25 miles.

I really love driving this car. I'm still getting used to navigating the big screen, but it will come. One pedal driving is totally intuitive - it's going to be interesting the next time I drive my F150 and have to start using the brake pedal again.

Over those 25 miles, my efficiency is 3.7 mi/kwh. Outside temp in the upper 40s, no climate control.

Another interesting tidbit: The dealer filled out the odometer reading on my paperwork as 252. After driving 25 miles, my odometer is actually at 34.7. I'm sure he looked at the remaining range number. :D

Looks like you just got an extra 242 miles of warranty! :)

My first stop was at a liquor store to pick up a celebratory bottle. WHen I cam out, a guy asked me if he could take pictures of the car. It does attract attention!
