I am a big fan of their new logo, while this is going to be our family car I still have my super duty and wrangler for hard offroad stuff, but the seltos will see it’s fair share of beaches, fire roads, and gravel. It’s going on a 1300 mile trip at the end of the week already.

Congrats mate! I just put a deposit down on a 2022 EX in Steel Grey. Just waiting for it to arrive in port. Hope you’re enjoying the ride. Safe travel.

&martymcfly I’m hoping you get your 2022 sooner rather than later, I bought the last on the lot and they have been slow to show up lately due to the Chinese chips that are back ordered due to covid. I’m sure you will love yours just as much as me!

The chip shortage is not due to covid according to my dealership in Canada.They said the tech industry is expanding sooo fast they they are buying them up.They said it's approx. a 3 month wait for alot of their models including the Seltos,They usually have well over a hundred on thir lot at any given time but now they have about 20.The same with other lots- no inventory.

I was very close to buying a new bronco but the dealer told me it would be 6 months before they could get one due to the chip shortage, but they said China cannot make the chips fast enough due to being behind from covid, but I suspect we will never know the actual truth.

65 cases of Covid in China today.Chip shortage because of covid??????? They are told to say that because they don't know any better.

While I’m not arguing what the truth is at all, I think it is a way to drive up prices of used vehicles right now, because they are very inflated currently.

The nightfall has some nice attributes! I will have to wait to see it in person before I determine if I like them better than my SX. I’m hoping I don’t! Hahaha!

I will say it’s a shame that they didn’t do the LED headlights etc for the nightfall.

I believe it should be easy enough to change to led headlights as I like them much better but I drove through the night and in some fog on Saturday night and the lights do seem bright enough

I have swapped halogen fog lights for a more amber colored LED with good results and that might be the direction I take when I swap the fog lights, as for the headlights I will stick with the standard blueish white LEDs

Yeah, your car looks great! I like the Mars orange with the nightfall package. That sounds like a winning plan for switching out the lights.

I know it would be hard for me to drive another car with halogen after having LED in my prior lease car, and now my SX. I find it odd that every new car isn’t full LED these days..
