First of all congrats Jerry - like sathee said you wont feel like getting out of the car. Now 1.6S seems to be covering most big cities.

About the tyres, I am probably the wrong person since I do not really know what you are looking for But here is my "rapidly depreciating" 50 paise.

The two things I noticed compared to my Santro was the road grip at high speeds. Never felt like I was going at 110+ Kmph. Also the air pressure seems to remain for a much longer duration. May be because of new tyres but I had to check tyre pressure in my old santro once in 3 weeks.

I am quite happy with the wheels (first timer with Alloy and tubeless) but I think slightly bigger wheels will make the car look even better. Hope this helps.

Just got a call from my dealer, and he mentioned that he would still be able to get me a vehicle by the 4/5th of Nov. He claims that they could now get an Aquarius piece from the factory.. strange I wonder what changed ?

Car'zy, did you read the latest November edition Autocar ?
Read the last paragraph of the ANHC review, they feel the Fiesta is a much better drivers car in terms of feel and overall driving pleasure (though the ANHC would have a technologically more advanced VTEC engine). Also the AAA (Ask Autocar Anything) column in the same mag, they again voted for the Fiesta 1.6 as a drivers cars. the ANHC has it's own virtues, but in terms of driving pleasure it definitely doesn't beat the 1.6S, same goes for the VFM that the 1.6S gives you.

Don't think twice about it, if you enjoy driving and are an auto freak, then the Fiesta 1.6S is the one to go for.
If you want a newer market product, bit more interior cabin space, better resale value few years down the line (who knows what can happen in a few years eitherway, but it can still be a consideration), and you want to empty your wallet by a whopping 1.75Lac more, then the ANHC is the one to go for. Mind you, if you still go in for the fog lamps, alloys (Honda OEM)), tyre upsize, it would cost you a better of 50K.
All in all on the lower side of a million bucks, the 1.6S is an excellent package for a pure bred petrol head.
I expect to get my 1.6S aquarius in a weeks time, and am only itching to get into the drivers seat.

Sorry guys these are the pictures i took it before the PD with my cell phone.It is not clear enough.I will post nice pictures with my camera and post it later.

Guys i love the suspension of Fiesta S.When i spoke to the service engineer in ford told me the ECU of fiesta S is different than normal SXI petrol Fiesta.Fiesta S is little bit more powerful than SXI petrol.

Hey Jerish, I'm not sure if I missed it in the snap, but in the centre of the alloys, isn't there a Ford emblem ? Or is that something that they add later prior to delivering the car ?
