Default Its Come - New Ford Fiesta

Hey guys,
We finally got our Fiesta on the 24th of Jan.
I know i am posting this quite late as the car has already done 1500km but my comp hasn't been working.
Anyways i will be posting the review soon so wait for it.
Oh and expect better more detailed pics too soon once i get the time and the camera has batteries.
Oh its a silver Fiesta 1.4 TDCi ZXi and no mods are planned as this is going to be chaueffuer driven atleast for now. Waiting for my license.
Cheers,
Enjoy

ABS was a no-no. Delivery was too long and those guys were irritating me alot.
OTR price is 852 K for company reg, Mumbai and average is 14kmpl in Mumbai and a Mumbai-Pune-Mumbai run in proper traffic in both Mumbai and Pune, it gave 16.
Should improve after service.
Those guys are saying we will have to wait 2 months for the RC book. What should i do?

Hey Lambo, welcome to the Fiesta Club! I've been lackadaisical about posting pics as well. Have a wonderful drive! Cheers

The TDCI price is actually a few K more than the top of the line SXI; I guess Lambo went for diesel for the lower recurring running costs
