Is it possible to get the car quickly if one pays premium?

Yeah why not, in our country those who agree to pay the premium always get things quickly while those who wait in queue keep waiting. I dont even blame those who pay premiums, the kind of booking process Ford started, they made an open ground for dealers to have fun.

There is dealer in Delhi who is openly asking for premium to get speedy delivery.

I just asked my SA the same question if ill get the car soon if I pay extra, he laughed at it.
But I did not go further as I did not have any plans of using such unethical means.
But the dealers definitely do allocate out of turn.

Would someone be able to get the 'cars delivered' or some similar list out of Metro Ford, Bangalore? Also, anyone who has gotten EcoBoosts delivered through Metro Ford, please stand up!! We could use some help.

Slightly disillusioned
Blooboi,
Would like to inform you, I have been emailed by Metro Ford (Palace Road) a couple of weeks back that i am 6th on their waiting list for Ecoboost and it would be delivered in December. I replied back asking if they were being allotted only 2 Ecoboosts every month. There was no reply. Wondering if there could be one more price hike before i get the vehicle. Understand what you feel when you say "slightly disillusioned". Ford could have done better with their communication to prospective buyers.

Couldn't help but share my excitement! I finally saw my Car at the showroom today. It is a September manufactured titanium diesel with start stop button. Glad it comes with Goodyears. Attaching the first picture.

Also, I have opted to not take Ford's Insurance and the Essential Kit. Saving about Rs.8000 on insurance and around 3000 on the Essential Kit.

Planning to get 3M protection, crossrail bars and extended 3rd and 4th year warranty.

That Mars Red colour is quite the chameleon - it looks like orange at times, bright red at other times and here quite a sober red!

Congratulations on your upcoming delivery.

Hi there!
Congratulations on your new car. When did you book it? And that doesn't look Mars red at all!! Looks more brick red to me.

I'd gone to Metro Ford on St. Mark's Road on 19-Jun to pre-book an EcoBoost Titanium (O). However, even then they quoted a waiting period of 6-9 months. Moreover, the SA was quite cold and not welcoming, which put me off.

The next day, I went to Lathangi Ford, and was greeted like a paying customer. Great attitude, one that brought the whole buzz of "new car" back into my head. They quoted a waiting period of 3-4 months.

I went ahead and pre-booked, and just assumed that the difference quoted was each dealer randomly guessing a date, in the absence of better information.

However, I got my car on 29-Aug itself. So its extremely surprising that Metro Ford are not delivering EcoBoosts fast enough.

Exactly! Mars Red is surely a chameleon. I saw one yesterday and it looked much like a dark orange shade, I wondered if this is a new color along with Mars Red! But, I think I was mistaken.

I am seeing a lot of Titanium variants being delivered, but don't see any Titanium(O) being delivered.
I have booked Titanium(O) and i am wondering if production of this model is stopped/halted temporarily. My gut feeling is that most of the high end models are being exported and dealers are left with only base variants and few Titanium variants.
Also somebody here in earlier post mentioned new Titanium variant comes with different seat material(something similar to leather), is this true? can somebody who have taken the delivery recently confirm the same?

Here's a picture of my car. Definitely not leather type but different from normal fabric seats also. One thing I noticed yesterday is that water droplets doesnt seep in that easily.

Hello there!
I had booked my ecosport diesel titanium on the 5th of July from metro ford, st.marks road.

The sales executive convinces me that I'll be getting the car in the last week of October, although I'm pretty apprehensive about that. Also I had booked the Mars red color. I changed it to white yesterday. Will this consume more time than usual as far has deliveries are concerned? If any of you have booked your cars from metro ford, st.marks road could you please tell me how long you actually waited for the car?

I have heard rumors that the titanium versions delivered after October would not come with the keyless entry and push start button! is that true?

A question to the experts:

What is so different about the 1.5AT that they decided that only that variant would get hill hold, ESC, EBA and TCA? Do these features depend on the AT gearbox for anything?

Now to the most horrible of them all, tweeter is only available in the AT. That one sure does not need the gearbox, am sure.
