Congratulations Dskumar. Great choice. The Fiesta 1.6 petrol is an awesome car (whether SXI or Sport). I went in for the Sport.
The cars got exceptional handling and an amazing engine.

Default Do we merge/create a consolidate 1.6S owners thread ?

Edit - Oops read the above as "consolidated"

Hey Guys,

Here's the count as of now.

Current T-bhp 1.6S owners:
1. Sathee46
2. Ssriram
3. Sachu
4. Jerish666
5. Autoenthusiast

Since each one of us has opened an ownership thread on the 1.6S or on the way to open one, I was wondering if it would make sense to open a consolidated thread for "Ownership Reviews Fiesta 1.6S".
(Mods might need your help on this one) --> We can then either post (Our individual reviews) or merge our existing threads(With the Mods help) into this consolidated thread.
This would be a single source for all 1.6S related ownership reviews. What do you feel ?

Oh and btw, to rephrase the above, that was something that Jerish and I were wondering when we spoke earlier today.

The side strips may not protect from scratches. In fact in Bangalore I see scratches and dents at the oddest of places.

I really feel that not having side strips gives the car a very sporty look whereas the stripes give a more executive sort of look. So the choice should be personal.

Sounds like a great idea. I am planning to post a 2000Km drive report. Good mix of lovely highway drives (BLR-Chennai, ECR, BLR-Mysore stretches). And poor pothole ridden slow city traffic in BLR.

I think guys who switched to Fiesta S from ANHC (…) should be very happy souls
One more to you guys.. Ahead of the curve!

Mods pls change the thread name to New Ford Fiesta 1.6S a friend who wanted to know what tbhp had to say in a sort of comparison. Gave me a call and said that we better change the thread name cause he didn't find it useful but thought it had a lot of valuable info on the Fiesta.

No. This is still a comparison thread. Initialy it was ANHC thrill. Now Fiesta rules. But as ANHC actual TD reports and user reviews start coming in, things can change.
