rsapideffect - you will for sure loose 25%-30% of the original value of the car. I would have bought your car if you were in chennai. Now, I might end up booking the new fiesta

@driveanddrive- Even the logan had the lock/unlock button at the centre of the console, but people did not like it.

The simple fact is, companies like Ford, Skoda and Fiat, doesn't bother to change it so as to cut cost!
Cutting cost is something that every brand does it out there.
I have a WagonR and currently own a Figo as well, yes Wagon R is comfortable, but having the indicator on the left side is not a deal breaker....

oh!! don't do that. 10 months is very new. how many kms have you done? I think you should keep the car forever and buy the NFS in addition.
If only I had the moolah, my garage would have my 1.3 Ikon, 1.6s fiesta and the NFS. It would have been perfect, ain't it!!

I would not do that. But yes I get your point.
The NFS is supposed to be better the the Fiesta. in all aspects looks, power, space and possibly handling. So why keep the old fiesta?

@Fordmanchau
Keep the car for alteast a year or 2 unless you find there is a very strong urge to go for NFS. I dont know, you may loose upto 1.5L on the FiestaS and the NFS may be 1L more expensive the the the 1.6S. All in all you will loose 2.5L for just a facelift. NOT WORTH.

oxyzen, you got me wrong here, I don't have the 1.6s fiesta with me, I wish I had.
I replied to "rapideffects" post, he has a 10months old 1.6s with him.

Do not sell your car now, keep her for atleast a year or two and maybe then you can buy a new Ford Fiesta 'S'.

The smartly intuitive technology in the all-new Fiesta keeps your busy life on the move in a way that’s totally effortless. Voice control and Bluetooth®^ put you in total control on the road and your life.
Just ask and all-new Fiesta will get important people on the phone, so you’re always in touch with your business and home. It will keep your air conditioning at just the right temperature for you – a little cooler, a little warmer, more fan - just say what’s on your mind and it’s done. It will even play your favourite iPod^^ playlists CD tracks and change radio stations.
It allows you to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on what’s ahead..

AWESOME!!

I was reading on the website: "Side mirrors automatically fold-in when parked."
Wow...that's one of the coolest features I have ever seen in this segment! So helpful in our country.

The above post should make your wish come true. The above one was in context of the top-end version.
