    Funny how OT has evolved. These threads were typically some decent sports car or project toy. Now, we're posting pics of our kid haulers. :hsugh:

    I drive an F150 and I can't wait until this thing shits. I'm really digging the Edge.

    I've had it for almost 2 years and not thinking about selling it yet.

    So that means I love it. :o

    It's great. Tons of room, comfy as a Lazy Boy, stereo is pretty good, and the Ecoboost makes it decently quick. It feels underpowered with the stock V6.

    It has such high mileage and I'm in college, it isn't worth all that much as a trade in unfortunately.

    the 2011 Edge with the new front/rear end is pretty sharp and the interior with the My Touch is really cool

    Yes, that's the Platinum White. The White Suede looks dirty.

    So far it's getting about 20mpg on mixed driving. I haven't had a chance to see how it will do on the highway alone.

    It's not real torquey, especially since I drive the 335i every day but it can definitely get up and move. Kinda curious to see what the aftermarket for the Ecoboost will look like once more people start modding the new SHO.
