Cool hello bhpians

hello Team-bhp'ians
This is Ashwin here from chennai. i have been going thru this forum long before i registered my self on the 6th of nov 2005 and should say that this site rocks!!!!... jus amazed at the kind of information circulating in here..
Abt my rides, we own a m800 '96 model and jus got a fiesta 1.4 this months. Must say that the fiesta is a really good car (any thing is after a m800..lol) rides well and great value for money .
Abt my self, i work as a production engineer at a piston ring manufacturing company in chennai,close to the FORD plant..and yes we happen to supply the rings for the Fiesta.And as my nick says i love hatch backs ...they are great fun to drive or RIP

So anyways keep the good stuff rolling.. and catch up with u guys later.

thanx GTO,
i guess your reviews did help cos we coudnt take the test drive when we booked the car ....( all the dealers kept saying that the cars were only for display and had to wait for a week for the test drive), but finally decided upon it after the reviews on OD and team-bhp.
BTW the car does feel solid ...did about 150 on the chennai-blore highway and din't feel a thing , but was too chicken to push it further cos there were villagers on cycles and tractors driving into you on the wrong side. The power steering feels great ..solid and not overservoed like the hyundais.The car does have a few glitches like the bonnet release on the left side and the indicator stalks on the left(guess i am kinda used to the maruthis).
will post pics and a better review later .... till

Hey Hothatch, take it easy on the car durin the initial stage. I wouldn't recommend pushing the car too much until the run-in period is over, this will help to save a lot for the future....

Welcome to the team, man. And do not forget the review on your new ride. The Fiesta being new to the market, people would not have much of
an idea about its attributes. And that is where your review could help.
