I have upgraded to roots vibrosonic (skoda and vw type) as I did not like the original horn.
Ecosport has dual horn, one on each side of the car.
But be cautious donot tamper with wires as it will hamper your electrical warranty.
Mine was done at the Ford service using tapping clips.the pictures of tapping clips are in my previous posts

The ambient light accessory supplied by Ford perfectly matches the backlit colour of dash.
It is very reasonably priced too.(around 2000inr)

Why would one want to mismatch colours by using white and orange.

As I have previously mentioned there is no tampering whatsoever, hence the leveller works perfectly, I keep it on 2 in city so that it is easy on the oncoming traffic and cars travelling ahead of me on my side of the road. (4 is all the way down, 0 is all the way up)

They don't have to drill a hole, I have seen the installation process.
It is fixed using clips only towards the outer edge of the bonnet, the other edge(inner side) is angulated upwards and does not touch the bonnet

I am attaching a picture posted in the forum it self.

Thanks for the update. Somehow, I didn't like the so-called ambient lights that are available at the local accessory shops in that range.

That was not specific to Ecosport, just a general thought. Combinations mentioned on Aliexpress were white and yellow. Don't want orange for sure!

Dear fellow bhpians,

This mxsmotosports guy from where eco-doc has got the work done seems to be a fake, he has again used my friend car picture clicked by me

First it was autogully and now mxsmotosports

This time he has edited the background and removed my silver ecosport from background , you can see that at the right rear view mirror.
He has touched up the number plate area, removed the antenna and roof bars.
He thought no one will notice

There seems to be no end to copymasters

LOL, and he could have just clicked eco-doc's ride once it was done! Why go to such lengths as locating a pic and then editing it when the final product is right there in your shop! Crazy!

Did you point it out to them?

PS: This thread is now 2nd most viewed thread in the official test drives section. Any guesses which is number 1?

Ford Figo.

May be cant do the right finish so they are apprehensive to post their own picture.

I Have requested Eco doc to post some clear pictures in daylight for the benefit of fellow bhpians

To the new owners of the Ford EcoSport: may you always ride easy in good health.

I recently sat on the front passenger seat of the Duster for a 500 km journey and was mightily impressed by how it ate the potholes and bumps on the highway.

Now every comparison of the Duster rates it higher that the Ecosport in this regard. The first page of this thread states that the "Ride quality isn't as plush as that of the Renault Duster. Underlying stiffness obvious"

But my question to people who have experience on both vehicles is: how much better is the Duster in this regard? The fact that it's ride quality is better does not imply that that of the Ecosport is far inferior. Or is it? How would Ecosport owners rank their new vehicles in this regard versus the Duster and/ or other vehicles?

Thanks.

Actually I came to know of the shop from team-bhp itself. It seems there is a thread here and it showed on google search. I called him up and went straight to get it done. No other shops in Gurgaon were willing to touch the lights so I went there reading decent reviews on the thread. They are pretty confident about their work and there was another customer who had come to get the lights done on ecosport so I was assured.Overall, I am happy about the work done, though felt he charged me a little too much.
The guy even had new headlights ready for installation.

The pictures you have clicked are at the centre portion of drl.

Thank you once again.

No wonder I had a feeling of seeing the vehicle somewhere...
Why don't these people respect other people's work!
why not atleast show a little bit of professionalism!
Some how I'm little skeptical about their work considering the price being almost same!

I guess it exits only from behind the groove. The other end is closed. And the strip fits into the groove well. There's no where else to go.

But you're the expert man. I have another pic. I hope it shows what you want to see.

Actually speaking the ride is pretty harsh. Especially when u are approaching a sudden undulation(such as a sharp bump) or a wedge on the road, it hits you hard and makes you really feel guilty. that said, if taken at low speeds the suspension takes it just fine. It does not bounce or pitch around much and is lovely on good roads(even if uneven). Just that the ride is a bit harsh at higher speeds

Thank you ranjitnair and johannskaria,
Ranjitnair we have been missing you

I just spoke to manjit suri of mxs motosports and asked for high resolution pictures.
When I questioned him about posting low resolution pictures on website, guess what his answer was, will quote is his words


"Hamare photoo log coopy kar rahe hai isliye high rejolusan nahi batarehe hai, aap order kijiye phir hum apke mall id per high rejolusion bhejdenge."


Chor ke ghar me chori ho raha hai

Now only Ecodoc has to post high resolution pictures to show this guys workmanship
