Thank you so much buddy.
But don't congratulate me yet, it's a 4 months old car and I am not taking it. I have asked them to arrange another car for me or cancel the booking if they couldn't.

Very weird that I got a call from Ford Customer Service informing me that it is a May 1st week manufactured car and not Feb. Not sure now, taking the car anyways. Should get delivered in next 3-4 days.
