Even on the day I was taking my delivery, there were more than 3 Titanium versions ready for deliveries. Please talk to him and something should be clear.

Earlier, as I mentioned in this thread that I met people who payed 55K to 70K as the premium amount to get on-the-spot and out-of-turn deliveries.

I really feel Ford has completely lost it. They have no control on dealers whatsoever.

Talk to Ahuja and let me know. In case you need Ahuja's number, please PM me and I will reply back with it.
Guys, I'm in same boat and same booking date., here in Bangalore. SA told me that the price is hiked by around 40k and is also applicable to the older bookings. Is this true or are they just bluffing me?

Sad but true.
The price hike was effective from 5th September.

Congrats bro. I had booked the same color in June with Elite Ford and no visibility into the delivery. Almost getting bugged and looking at other options. Btw, can you tell me the revised ONP for Petrol Titanium, if that's what you got? Thanks.

Thanks Nitin. Hope you get an allotment soon.

Mine is an Ecoboost Titanium. Ex-showroom price after hike was INR 8,46,578. Price for same variant prior to hike was INR 8,04,034.

What is ONP? In Chennai it can be OPP(On Pothole Price) and in Bengaluru it can be OSP(On Speedbreaker Price) (Of course On Road Price doesn't apply nowadays in any city coz there is no road !)

Thanks for the info. I was not aware of this. Surprisingly, both prominent dealers in mumbai (Wasan and AVK) doesn't seem to have any info on this.

Took delivery of my EcoSport Automatic from Wasan Ford Mumbai this evening and immediately put it to use in South Mumbai's 7-9pm traffic. My initial observations:
1. Cabin is extremely silent, NVH levels are well controlled.
2. Stock ICE's sound quality is very good, AT version also has actual tweeters at front doors unlike manual version.
3. Vehicle had 74KM on Odo when i took the delivery. But then the dealer's stockyard is over 40 KM away (know it from personal experience, made visit for doing pre-registration inspection).
4. Vehicle came with Goodyears
5. Refused essential kit from the dealer, planning to buy Reverse Camera with IRVM from Ford and 3D Kagu mats from outside (South Mumbai dealer "Car Point" doesn't have these in stock). Got Zero Dep insurance from HDFC Ergo for 20.3K.
6. Engine felt slightly underpowered. While driving in D Mode, had tough time in keeping the rpms below 2500 levels. The vehicle refused to fill the open road space while starting in D mode from signals and I had to control myself time and again from applying pressure on throttle. Got honked couple of times too. Requesting other EcoSport AT owners to share their Run-In experience and whether they also experienced similar lack of power while starting in D Mode during initial period of their ownership. Planning to stick to D Mode during initial run-in, will try S mode after that.
7. Attaching few pics which i clicked while doing inspection in Dealer's stockyard. Will post delivery pics in ownership thread (to follow soon). Still to SYNC' those from Camera

So would the Automatic variant then come with Ecoboost engine unlike the current 1.5 Petrol?

Has any of the Ecosport owners fitted the Individual Pack (IRVM with camera, LED scuff plates and Rear Spolier) recently from any dealer in Bangalore?

Checked with Lathangi and Elite Ford and they do not have stock.
Also any aftermarket alternatives for the IRVM with camera and the LED scuff plates?

As promised earlier, few pictures of the mudflaps purchased from ebay.in for a cost of Rs 450. Did not know how to use the injection type fasteners, used to fix the flap onto the car. Finally got help from a relative and realized it was so simple to fit.

The pictures shown on ebay.in looks non-OE design. But guess the product I got is similar in design to the OE and well worth the money spent. It has the angular design and not rounded. Original one costs around Rs 1300/-

Friends,

I have booked a Diesel Titanium and currently waiting like many others. I understand that Diesel variant doesn't include Tweeters. Are they available as official Ford accessory? If not, are there any aftermarket solutions available (which doesn't void the warranty)?

Thanks.

Strangely, yes, only the Automatic 1.5 Petrol Titanium variant includes the tweeters.

Aftermarket solutions are plenty but if detected by Ford during a warranty claim, WILL probably void warranty on the audio & electricals.

It was mentioned that they are available in the official pack earlier:

but I am not sure since did not see any confirmation.
