Yes, in Bangalore, Ford India deducts Rs 3000/- if you cancel the booking. This is the information based on last year. Booking amount was Rs. 50,000/- last year. Not sure why there was a difference of such amount in Kerala.

I agree. One should never tamper the usage just for the looks. The Bare rim doesnt even look good on the car.

May be he has a new tyre inside his boot, and the Bare rim , his style quotient

1st cross of the JC road car accessories lane. Ask anyone for Car automobiles which is a big shop. 3-4 shops after that you will find a small shop in which the guy is stitching inside.

They stitch jeep soft tops mainly. You can select the colour. Don't go for white. It will get dirty very fast. Go for the black or try grey.

The guy's name there is Antony.

Boot door rattle noise on uneven surfaces.

Crappy goodyear tires, ABS working over the clock to stop wheel locks. just waiting to get rid of them ASAP.

TDCi , 26.5K Kms done.

A clutch bleeding should do just fine. 26.5K kms is quite low for a clutch replacement.

Hey Vidyut, even i have got the same wheel cover for my ecosport at my native. Though its a cheaper solution i have found out some issues:
1. Naked tire with alloy looks much better(atleast in my case).
2. The main purpose of cover is to keep tires clean. Since cover is black in color, it gets dirty just like black tire.
3. Very easy to steal.
4. Important one, i had stuck "Got BHP?" sticker to the cover, now after couple of car wash,the sticker has started to come off. In search of a sticker, which would last long! Guess printing would be a better option.

To add to the above points,

Since the cover is black, it will get hotter in this season and can have issues on the tyre, though the colour of the cover can be changed.

1. Agreed the naked tyre with the alloys looks the best but then people do go for the full plastic cover which is 12K. Instead of spending 12k and hiding the alloy it's better to spend 400. I wasn't too concerned that it won't look good but after putting it on I was not disappointed.

2. Yeah but it's way easier wiping the cover than the tyre. The tyre was a pain to clean and I'm a little finicky so did not like the dust accumulating on the tread. With this cover you can wipe it with a cloth whereas cleaning the tyre grooves is a royal pain.

3. Agreed, but don't think anyone will look at stealing a 400 buck cover unless you are parked in a risky place of town.

4. If you want to stick the sticker you will need to use gum. Just the sticker adhesive will not stick on rexine.

Yeah but it will never get hotter than when it is running on the car na. Imagine the heat on the front tyres when they are being run. The cover also protects against the elements rain, sun, dust.

By the way the old gen CR-V had a similar rexine cover on it. The facelift added a plastic cover instead of rexine.

When I asked the Fortune guy about the time difference, he said it depends on how many bookings each dealer has and maybe the other dealer has more AT bookings than us. He seemed genuine or
The sales manager at mody did tell me that they have long waiting period for petrol version and also for titanium O, I have cancelled my booking at vibrant and moved to mody. They convinced me that it will be delivered in 45 days.

Got my philips xtreme visions installed today. The short ride back from work was much better. Will update as and when.

The '0' position of the headlights seems too high in an otherwise empty car. Anybody facing this issue. Any remedies?
