Thanks Ashish and Arjun.

Secondly, if you know about any leftover Fiesta stock, please let me know. One of my colleague is keen to buy it.

I don't think so as it has been more than one and a half years since production of Fiesta was stopped. I have seen a few Fiestas running on Bangalore roads and all seem to be in pretty good condition as only enthusiasts bought it, so I am sure getting a used car in immaculate condition should be possible.

What a sad decision by Ford. They have now announced Aspire special edition with Fiesta design alloys. Could be old stock of alloys leftover from Fiesta production line. But dear Ford, this is not justified. Thanks.

I just got an end 2014 manufactured and registered facelift fiesta - bought by a dealer from Ford India after it was used as an employee's corporate issued car for 20k km. Ford apparently sells them to the employee / gives preference to ford employees who want to buy it, but after that does a public auction once such company cars complete three years.

A few hundred of these were issued to ford employees so should be coming into the market sooner rather than later.

This dealer in chennai tends to buy several cars at Ford's auctions. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/chenna...s-chennai.html (Used car dealer - VJ Cars, Chennai)

Got it for 6.4 after bargaining and I'm sure I could have bargained a good bit more but this is a clean car with tyres and battery in decent condition and absolutely no work of any sort required - I can take it out onto the highway tomorrow and no issues. The only thing I needed to do was to fit 3M sun film but that's not what you would call necessary

Two pics of the exterior are on the vj cars thread.

This dealer had at least one other fiesta (silver early 2015 registration) when I was looking but was offering t for about a lakh costlier with like three months between the dates of the two registrations. Yeah 2014 VS 2015 car and all that.

Yeah - this sensor panel. Does it have anything that'd interfere with an RFID tag such as the Fastag for tolls? Also Ford seems to have added a black dotted pattern to the windshield behind the IRVM - that too would interfere with visibility I think.

What's the best spot to paste a fastag in this case? Thanks.

I think in this case it would be best to use a temporary solution. Just have a celotape on the back of the fastag and stick to top left of the windshield. Probably somewhere in the passenger side should work. Once it works, the tag can be fixed permanently.

Thanks - others have recommended sticking it just below the sensor and that works for them. I'll use a tape and experiment.
