20 mins to get out.
1 hr for the traffic block again.
To beat the traffic and save time, park your vehicle somewhere away, take public transport and walk little.

Lets hope the display will be on after 9 pm too. That is a good direction that you gave me. Will try out after 9 on Friday.

If it helps, Lulu is going to charge for parking pretty soon. Heard it going to start when PVR is ready in 2 weeks time. They have installed the ticket dispensers and automatic gates already.

I think that should reduce the number of cars getting in.

Can you confirm with them the display time? Supposing we go there after 9pm, will their staff be there for us to have a mini review of the car?

If they lock the vehicle and leave after 9pm, then its of no use for us.

It is confirmed that the Ecosport display starts tomorrow morning at Lulu main atrium for next three days. Not sure about staff support during late evening hours.

I will be there if I can manage to wriggle out of the office hours

An Ecosport is already there at the Kairali Ford dealership. I was told that it is a real urban SUV and the smaller size would be its USP. The 1.0L TSI petrol has the punch, I was told.

I might go there on Friday night or Sunday as I'm out of town on Saturday.

Apart from Dhanush, is there anybody else planning a visit on Friday evening?

I did not get to sit inside. Initial one hour was only for media. And I couldn't stick around for more as I had to return back to office. Met recallers also there. He might have got a chance for a closer peek.
I have posted some pics in the Ecosport thread.

Intend visiting again tomorrow. Before lunch probably. Anyone interested?

The thread has gone dormant and here's my bit to give it some life.
What happened to the trip which we were planning?
My up coming weekends are all packed up. Tomorrow, I am going to Jamshedpur returning on 25th and then the same day I will be going to Kollam (native place) and Varkala over the weekend for a family function.
On May 6th, I am going to Goa, returning on 13th.

Therefore, I might not be able to chip in for a drive. However, If its a mini meet on 4th or 5th of May, I think we can pull it through. What say guys??
