Hi Senthil,

The Ikon costs 5.49 OTR and 5.59 with 2 years extended warranty.
You'd get Kenwood Mp3 player + Nippon Speakers + Autocop Keyless Entry free.

You can also get 7.5k worth of accessories as corporate discount depending on where you work.

Isac would be able to tell you about the company lease scheme which entitles you for some more discounts I guess.

The prices for the Extended Warranty have been increased, as these prices above indicate.

First trip, try out Nandi Hills.
As for the teflon part, trust me its not worth it. You would rather go in for a 3M treatment.

Guys,

Teflon coat offer by ford is bul s**t, I have seen that with my eyse in teh workshop while i took my ikon for regular service.

The waxoyl guys just use a lliquid wax and a polish machine to apply all over the car. this is certainly not the actual way of teflon cat for car.

For guys buyiong ford cars, ensure that its done post 3 monthst u purchase the car be coz this the time when u may end up loosing some glaze of new car , and ensure u get that 3 time polish done

isac, for the 3M treatment, Vidyut (vid3699) or Mahesh (theMAG) can provide you with details. Alternatively, you can also find pointers on this link :

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/owning...esthetics.html

Time for you to start an ownership thread. This thread should ideally be closed once you have bought the car.

Isac, the best option is to email 3M India via their website and ask them for their nearest point of operation to you. For me it was a no-brainer since the Maruti authorized service center RNS (Unit-II) Yeshwantpur, where I leave my Swift for service, has 3M presence since a long time.

For older cars i.e. more than 1year they recommend Surface Refinement. This involves the following steps

1. Complete External wash
2. buffing/scratch removal
3. claying to give a smooth finish and fill in
4. Polish using 3M machine polish
5. Miracle glaze finish to get wet look and shine.

For the lancer the entire process costs Rs.2600 of done at HM.
