Mobike, Eddy was replying with respect to my comment, wherein i had mentioned that my car, which is the Flair also has no remote boot release.
Maybe you should stop skipping the posts in between.

Eddy, as i mentioned, my car doesnt have the remote boot release.

I would even pay 6K for it... if they had an option!!

Was there a change in the Flair model after 2004 ? Mine certainly has a remote boot release right next to the gear stick.

A little off topic--regarding remote boot release, my Fiesta only has remote release---on the key and on the dashboard. It does not have a key socket to manually open it ! I found many Fiesta's having the keyhole at the rear, but it looks like sxi does not have it at all!! Not sure if there is a flip side to this.

Infact even the Ford manual mentions about it Boot release , I guess they made changes to it after 2004 model [but yet to update the user manual ] , every day i have to stop the engine for my office security to check the boot Grrrr....

We are going partly off topic here, but just to confirm....
Eddy, the boot release is no longer available on the Flair as a standard fitment. Since i dont need to unlock the boot much sitting inside the car, not so much of an inconvenience to me.

Can you please mention the a/c usage also?

thanks man haven't come across someone with CNG in mind. But if your friend is after FE.. then why doesn't he consider the diesel variant?

Good Report Ashutosh,
Enjoy yourself in your new car...
If I had buget constraints, may be I would have also gone for Logan, as Mahindra-Renault combination was one good bet...

P.S. How come every single BHPian writes such a wonderful, professional, well-laid out technical review reports....!!! Is it the car that makes them so or is it being member of Team-BHP...!!!!
