Thumbs up

the ZXi comes for 5.67L and the EXi comes for 5.23 L
would be going for the EXi as i would have the option to change the wheels with what i like ...

Yet another story of Fiat losing customer due to dealer's apathy.

But hey, you haven't lost anything, Avinash. You have a good exciting driver's machine in hand in place of Petra. So, enjoy your ride and have fun.

Lightbulb

almost three weeks after booking the ikon, i've taken delivery of the Ikon 1.6 EXi last evening... and i've gone in for the silver (not the black as mentioned previously, as the family was not so enthusiatic about the black). further, they didnt have a black which did me a favour as i could rope in a "one year extended warranty" on the same price for the silver.
The delay had not been deliberate, but sorta unavoidable. so i don't have any qualms on that!!!
I reckon the whole buying experience has been really exhilarating to say the least. Didn't have any major problems.
Have installed Sony Explod CDX-F7710S HU and have changed the speakers in the front to a 4" blaupnkt. Should change the rears to and add a sub.
would post pics as soon as i take them.
thanks a lot guys,

PS: mods please close the thread.

Congrats Avinash...BTW I had the same issue with colours as I wanted black and the rest of the family didnt. They couldnt get the black on time, so I got a silver with Vx trim done by the dealer plus underbody rustproofing etc.

Waiting for the pics...

Congratulations Avinash! 1.6 is indeed Josh machine. About color, my parents had similar issue with black color, but was able to convince them. It seems no one likes black cars, though IMHO most of them look the best in black.

Congrats man. Its a great choice and truly a drivers machine.
I'm glad you are able to look beyond the numbers, the brandname and general public opinion that........because Ikon 1.6 is not about 0-60 or KPL or discounts.
