Wildon, thanks a ton for the report. You've been providing these reports unfailingly for such a long time. Kudos to your commitment to help fellow boarders.

On going through the VIN report, I've noticed a couple of strange things.

1) The Ecosport Titanium (Option) models are supposed to be provided with a 'Base Instrument Panel' while the Titanium models are equipped with 'High Level Instrument Panel'. This is true for the Diesel and Ecoboost models. I've not checked for the 1.5 Petrol models.

2) What is unique about my car is that although it has a diesel engine, its supposed to have an 'Ecoboost' badge. I can't wait for the car to arrive at the Dealer's yard to check this out personally.

I understand that these could be human errors by someone at Ford India Ltd. Some poor soul would be pulling his hair out figuring which of the ten different models have what particular features.

The PDF report has confirmed the most important things I needed to know i.e. the model, colour and date of manufacture. I couldn't thank you enough for this.
