That's a really good review.

I too own an Ford Ikon now. It's a superb car to drive! It's also got an excellent build quality.

Thats great, InternetUser.
Which colour did you pick up, and what were the dealer discounts like?

Treat him (Mike) well Ben...Don't spoil his comforts. He is comfortable to be driven at 25~30kmph in the crater ridden road.

It's silver colored. It's a 2006 model Ford Ikon 1.3 Flair that I'd bought from the local AutoMart dealership about 2 months back.

It's a fun car to drive. I plan to post some photos and write a review--whenever I can spare the time.

@joshdrive, thanks for the nice words.
@undead, good to see another Jewel Violet Ikon on the forum. Put up some pics when you are eligible for a TBHP garage.

I think its the black color Ikon. Like Jewel voilet, mist silver, black is referred as "Panther Black".

Oh! I thought they were referring to my little benny boy. Mike & Panther would have been a good combination.

Yeah..go ahead with K&N and FFE. It will really boost the performance of the car. But the FE will come down by a couple of kms. BTW, is your car 1.6 or 1.3?

I seriously doubt it. The Ikon would do well with the 1.4 TDCi from the Fiesta, however, i dont think having the 1.6 petrol from the Fiesta is a good option.
