Got my car delivered an hour back. I'm getting the tyres changed at pitstop now. They delivered around 42 cars today.

Congrats! 42 cars from a single dealership!? Must have been a near stampede. Do you have any pics?

I have a pic or two on my phone. I'll see if I can upload it. (I'm replying from the phone now. Still waiting for the car at the tyre dealer)

Joe, which is your car in the pic? I bet these kind of volumes must be a big deal for the Ford dealers who typically deliver only like 3-5 cars a day. Which tires did the car originally come with? (brand, not size)

Congrats Joe. Wow you are the first one here to have figo in hand. Thanks for the pics.

I have also booked at kairali ford branch in kottayam a month ago and no sign of delivery this week.

Congrats Joe! Please post more details and ownership experience.

IF you can kindly include all the details about the car and items you got with it. This would really help other bhpians waiting for their figo.

Thanks guys! I'll get some pics up as soon as I get back from Cochin. I need to give my car for repairs. Someone decided to modify my Civic's rear bumper yesterday :(

The exact number is 31 and not 42. Sorry about that.

@mkerala - Any specific reason that you gave the full amount for booking. Normally an advance amount will do the job. I think they are making you to shift to Titanium. Heard that around 5000 cars are manufactured and started for delivery. 150 per day approx.
Chennai - MPL ford insisted 25k for booking.

Congrats on your new possession, I think you are the first one to get Figo on this forum.
A lot has been said & written about the Figo however please do put down your thoughts /experiences about the Figo as a owner. This will help many who are looking out for there new car.

They didn't insist on full payment, but they told it will take few days to get the full payment cheque to get cleared. So i paid earlier to make delivery fast.
