I was trying to post how jealous I am but none of the tools are clickable so I couldn’t add a big grin or thumbs up.
Hope yours drops in soon!

I just picked up my FE Cyber Orange. The Navy Pier looks great. This was a big question for me during this process. I have not seen 1 picture that represented it well. Same with Cyber Orange. It can come off as yellow in some pics....it is more orange for sure, but at some angles it is a mix due to metallic and tri-coat and lighting. Love both the Cyber Orange and the Navy Pier. Combo looks sharp. The Navy Pier is darker and much nicer than every picture I have seen. Was going to be a deal breaker if it was that lighter blue I kept seeing. I do not have pics to share of the Navy Pier..it just doesn't show up right. If looking on a laptop, the angle of your screen can alter the color as well. Very happy I stuck with FE.
a big congratulations! And what an awesome setting to take those shots. Very nice all around.

Glad to hear you're happy with it @MDCDOC. I want pics of that interior with the door sill paint in view for reasons.

MDCDOC,
I stumbled into a FE in Area 51 recently after the person that ordered it elected not to purchase and have to agree on the Navy Pier interior. The color/leather is not something I could critique Ford on. Don't get me wrong, I wish the seats were 15% larger with a deeper bottom cushion but aesthetically they are much better than expected. A close friend sat in it for a few minutes the first night that I got it home. After i started it up and he was climbing out of it he commented, " Are the seats a navy leather !? Sweet."

I'll snap some pics tomorrow mid day and post. Will try to capture it right for you. It's a good look. I take it home tomorrow after they cleaned it up from shipment and added a few minor things today. Stay tuned.

Best - I can do. This pic doesn’t show it right. I took 15 pics, not 1 is close. The navy is dark, almost charcoal, the grey material is also darker. Not sure why it can’t be captured the way it looks. Upon second sighting, I like it even more. I posted several times on this site how bad the navy pier looked from pics. In person it is very nice and will work will all four exterior colors in FE. Sorry, you’ll just have to find one to see for yourself. The second pic - on the side where I circled is a pretty close look at the actual color of the blue. It’s a great look. Into the wild I go now.

Thank you for the review and pictures. I have a carbonized gray OB with navy pier on the way, and that was my concern as well. Glad to see some positive reviews coming out.

I’ve found photographing through the glass on a closed door helps get the color to render closer on screen to the actual. Obviously this obscures how much you can see though. Photo of the OB I test drove two weeks ago.

Having the same interior, I understand the frustration with how it looks in photos vs. in person. Appreciate you doing the best you can to capture it and glad you're enjoying your new First Edition.

I loved the blue interior on the first edition when I saw it - and I didn't expect to be a fan.

No problem and thanks. It’s a great look man. Really sharp, much better than any pic I have seen. I think it looks bad in every pic including mine above. I have added 1 more that I’d say is darn close. It’s the one off Ford site. CGI pic, but this is close. Look at circled area specifically.

Is anyone considering adding the body side molding to their FE? I typically have them on my cars but I'm not sure how it would look with the FE decal below it.

It’s a possibility because I want to protect my vehicle, especially; from parking lot dings. So, I’m really considering getting the vehicle wrapped which may cover the stickers anyway. I really want to protect the original paint job, plus I can custom design any type details. Not sure yet.

I’ll pick my FE up in about a month and decide then. But, I’m really leaning on the side moldings for sure and a lift kit with more gnarly tires.

My editing skills on my phone are crap but I guess it would look something like this. Can’t wait to get the front windows tinted.
