If I go for the Figo, it would be a tossup between Diamond white and Sea Grey, which looks better in person than on the sample sheets.
What was his name?

Go for the white, I personally find it better than the grey, The car looks classy in white. Even the red is really nice but then you wont get the coral IP in that.

In chennai - MPL Ford - Nandanam the queue for TD is there yesterday & today also. More bookings are for Exi & Zxi - one sales guy told. Shared a small TD (just U turn in the Mount road at the Nandanam signal) and the vehicle response is as per the reviews.

However you might see a fiesta 1.6 hatch in december.
I suppose you mean the new Fiesta right? If it's priced around 7 or 8, it might go the Jazz way. But please don't strip out the features to cut costs. If I were in Ford's position, I would launch the new Fiesta sedan first and then the hatch 6 months down the line.

I might not upgrade in 2012, but the possibility of upgrading to a Focus is pretty strong in the future. Just give me the 2L Duratec with 140 PS and 190 NM.

Congrats! I was in the Nandanam showroom from 11:30 to nearly 1 PM. When did you make the booking and who is your sales man?

I think you should go for White or Sea Grey. Red looks super hot. I don't know why FORD decided to go with GREEN instead of RED for their campaign.

One of the sales person at the dealership told me yesterday that there is a paint (quality) issue with the sea grey colour. Delivery of sea grey is not expected until late May 2010.

My sales manager just informed me that my car will be ready for delivery this saturday. He's a little distracted, with his wedding fixed and all.

Is the colorado red a metallic one?Of all the colors i saw squeeze brought out the lines of the cars well .Finish of squeeze appeared to be the best.chill is a faint mix of gold on yellow and may be mistaken for a silver at first glance.
Think aquarius blue might have been best!
Basically being a subdued design i plan to put alloys,spoilers,fogs,some exterior detailing on mine.any ideas regarding fitment of roof rails?

AFAIK even Ford's Fusion barely had a bumper.

why do you want to downgrade to 13" ? The car comes equipped with 175/65 R14

Figo deliveries are starting day after tomorrow. Around 10 cars are going to be delivered from Kairali Ford, Cochin. And mine's one of them! I'll be making the payment tomorrow. I need to get a no-claim certificate.( from my 5 year old Alto) I hope it's an easy process.
