After visiting the Ford Dealers, I had few questions and request inputs from fellow members regarding below:

1) Below were offered on Titanium+ TDCI
2) In the day/night mode IRVM, rear camera display cannot be integrated with the 2016 models Titanium+ models. Looks like we will loose the day night mode and need to just settle for regular IRVM with rear camera view integrated. Is this correct

4) Any option to opt for official Ford accessory for the headlamps (to have them changed to projector headlights)..

Congratulations both for the car and your membership into Team bhp.

The new facelift will have a colour screen without touch function.
The powered IRVM can be integrated with the reverse camera(available as an accessory)
"Eagle eye" brand has plug and play headlamps with projectors and will not hamper warranty.

My ecosport has turned three today and I am surprised that it still has a 4 week waiting period.
Please go through my ownership report, might be useful to you.

Is this how Ecosport will like in 2017. Just saw it in an Indonesian site. If yes, then what a stunning car.

This seems to be the current day Ford Edge being sold in the Americas.

This is definitely Ford Edge and not EcoSport. I have seen the older Edge in Brazil. Ford India should bring this to our shores.

Thanks ecosport rules. I'm yet to buy the car - only shortlisted for now.

Yes, I have gone thru your thread and loved the way you've accessorized your Ecosport. Must say, I started liking Ecosport only after going through the official review and your ownership report.

I checked with the dealer after seeing your ownership report, however per the dealer - only the initial models had these provision as an official accessory. For the 2016 model - can't be automatic day / night mode IRVM with reverse camera display plugged in. If you do so, then you loose the automatic day / night mode. He also stated that they tried doing it in one of the Titanium+ model and had failed resulting in customer refund.

Regarding projector head lamps, I'm looking for one that comes in as an official Ford accessory and not an after market.

Oh yes, the wait period of 4 weeks - dealer states the Mars Red Titanium+ TDCI is built on order and nothing available in stock (same case for most of the other colors as well).

Even then I put seat covers as soon as I bought that. Although I never had to remove it for cleaning in the nine years of owning it. At least I felt I was nice to the next owner.

Search in TB mobile app didn't show anything relevant yesterday. But searching in the desktop site now showed some discussion in this thread (around page 301) regarding airbag-friendly seat covers. Why is it not recommended?
I have installed Airbag complaint seat covers on my AT. Part name is SBA 0011. look at page 532 for a pic of the same.

I don't think Ford would ditch spare alloy on boot lid for Indian customers . It should be an export variant.

what should I look out for in a 35k done Titanium TDCi ecosport(manufactured in Feb 2014)? I'm getting a good deal from my car dealer. Apart from tyre wear and tear , I couldn't find anything wrong mechanically. Typical diesel clatter, car pulls cleanly, brakes are good. AC/(compressor?) cuts off when accelerator is floored , should I worry about this?

What sort of parts require general overhauling at this age of the car? Any help would gladly be appreciated please. Should I be worrying about timing belts? air filter? What fluids require changing?

There haven't been any persistent major issues reported with the tdci atleast on team bhp. Please check if the car is on the extended warranty. It will help you in case something major crops up later.

I believe the resale value on Ecosport used to be really great. Curious on what's being quoted now, after the massive price reductions! Whats the quote on 2014 model? Thanks in advance.

Get it checked throughly at authorised workshops if you have any doubts. Sometimes they dont even charge you for it. Even otherwise, better to spend 500 now than end up with fat bills later.

8.5 to 9 lacs is what I see on Cartrade for Titanium Diesel in Bangalore. I guess it wouldn't be too far away.

Now that a few months have gone by, would you kindly update us on the performance of these projectors? Are they still working well? Is the light throw wide or at least wider than stock halogens? By wide, I mean if it illuminates the sides of the road as well and not just directly in front of the car. What is the improvement over standard halogens in light output? Would you estimate it to be double or treble than before or less?Thank you for sharing the details of such an interesting product.

Folks,

This side of 10 lac(OTR, Thane), Ecosport is one drool-worthy car.
I'm tempted towards the Trend+ variant which is pretty well kitted & has safety features (ABS, EBD, Airbags)

Need your inputs on how well the 15" tyres on Trend+ ride vis-a-vis the 16" alloys on Titanium.

Thanks for your reply. I read your earlier post that your ecosport has crossed 60k? Can I ask if you had the diesel or petrol? How is it holding up now, what's the current ODO reading at? Did you face anything else apart from regular servicing(oil change etc)?
