Absolutely. That was like a true petrol-head - taking off as soon as you could lay your hands on her !

Where did you go to ? Do fill us in on the details.

LoL ! Notorious may be a better description ?

You should be talking to the Ikon veterans here - guys like NC, Benny, and lot many more.

@Road Warrior-: Congrats on your purchase.

I have a Fiesta so know about the engine, but its a tad underpowered in the Fiesta. How does it feel in the Ikon?

I had test driven an Ikon and found the drivers space very cramped. That was my main apprehension about an Ikon.

How was it on a long drive?

Once you push the driver's seat behind, it doesnt feel so tight anymore. Long drives are then certainly not an issue.

Congrats mate. Where did you buy it from, Lathangi or Metro in Bangalore. Metro often offers a few more freebies than Lathangi! Do share some pics.

Cheers.
