Thanks guys for the feedback. I think I will cancel the dealer appointment on Saturday, it may not make any difference. Sam, what you have mentioned might be true, the driving style. I dont have much clue about it because I use it only on highways (once or twice in a Quarter). Monday to Friday its wife's car to office through bumper to bumper peak traffic morning and evening. I dont think she gets a chance to even experience 3rd and 4th gear.

Actually your wife may be driving properly. Under the 3rd gear, in heavy, Bangalore traffic - I would say that is the correct mileage in a petrol figo.

The highway mileage should have been more though.

Me driving on the highway, its very hard to get more than 14 kmpl ! I rip it whenever I can, I enjoy the engine roar more than the music. That has forced me to go for something in the need for a powerful engine above 2 L category. Presently I don't own anything in my name, hopefully owning a 190-230 bhp very soon, thats discussion for another day

First Congrats and happy driving!

I have tried 3 different Insurance Companies so far - Bharti AXA, ICICI and Royal Sundaram (present). In case of a claim, I never had any problems with any (No claims in present). But, I view Bharti AXA very favorably - they were the fastest to settle a claim. If you know what exactly to do in case of a claim - no company can deny it.

Though my recommendation is between Bharti AXA and ICICI.

Got delivery of my Figo Titanium TDCI a few days back. Deep impact blue looks really good on the car. Thinking of going for the reverse camera and IVRM display, was quoted 10,900/- for the same. Price seems a bit steep,also are they any good or are the parking sensors enough.Will post a detailed review after the end of run in period.

Is it a new colour? Never seen it anywhere. Looks really nice. I would have picked this colour if I saw one earlier. I had fixed the reverse camera from the dealer, paid 12500, so you are getting a better deal. It's far better than sensors. You can see the back even in pitch dark, very helpful for tight parking.

Congrats @dr_figo on your latest acquisition and its a 'True Blue Hot Hatch' !!

With VW discontinuing the Night Blue on both Vento/Polo, this shade on the Figo/Aspire is by far one of the most gorgeous colours available on a mainstream car

Wishing you a happy motoring and looking forward to your ownership report.

My Figo TDCi is about to touch the 24K mark on the odometer and I have always felt the stock headlights are below par. The feeling has only become stronger with the onset of the Monsoon! It almost reached scary proportions last night when I had to drive through heavy rainfall for more than an hour.
I am thinking about replacing the stock headlights with Philips Extreme Vision Plus lights. Guys! will this change be good enough or is there a better option?! Thanks!

It has been there since launch but Ford never marketed it for some strange reason. Looks richer in this colour. However, maintaining this shade may be as tough as maintaining a black car! Mobike008's Aspire is of the same shade.

True, all their marketing and major reviews were with the golden car. Colour choices were completely hidden. Anyway I went with white and I dont think any other colour is as tough as white to maintain.

Deep impact blue colour has been there since the begining, ford should have marketed using this rather than sparkling gold. Have talked to the dealer,getting the reverse camera this weekend.

Thank you,have not yet opened her up, maximum went upto 70 km/hr and never rossed 2000 rpm,following run in period recommendations religiously.
Colour looks really nice, kinda of makes the car a bit more sporty. Matt black/antracite alloys will look stunning with this colour.
