I like. Very sporty, you enjoy her to the max, her body kit looks amazing and those are the best stock alloys i'v seen in that segment.

The 1.6 S Aquarius is one drool baby! I just like to look at the car for a long time! And the front seats are really comfortable!

BTW, I was ripping in one last night through Banjara & Jubilee Hills. It is fun to watch all the other cars fall back when you accelerate!

I wish I had the money to buy it from the friend who is planning to sell it due to complexities involved in transferring it to another city!

@ Milecruncher , Thanks for the link. I will decide by tomorrow.

Meanwhile more updates on my Car

I need to visit Ford service this evening.. Smaller issues ..

Stearing wheel, I feel a little offset or there is some drag to the left ..Has anybody faced this earlier

Left front door Speaker, Voice breaks even at lower bass songs

Initially as per discussion with Mody Ford, the essential pack (Matings & mudflaps- Ford Originals) had to be given with my car... Somehow I missed this out of PDI list while I was taking the car last week. On saturday i realized the mating was black and local made.

I called Mody and asked about it. The first reply was that the cost of the car they sold was too less so they could not include the essential pack but they asked me to call back yesterday...

Called them yesterday and they had already decided to give me the essential pack...Happy with the service of Mody so far

Congrats Nitya.

This is the best driver's car under 10L and in the aquarius color is the best looking(purely subjective)

The only thing that baffles me is why this particular model 1.6S hasnt sold in good nos

1.6 Fiesta is the best car for performance and ride, i think the only reason why many probably buyers are putting off their purchase is due to the high spare parts costs and less number of service outlets eventhough the spare parts are localized to great extent for Fiesta and the prices have come down comparing Ikon,

many probable buyers still compare with ikon spare part prices and also the other important factor is service outlets, If ford can bring more service only outlets something similar to MASS this would probably increase the trust among buyers to go for Ford cars.

i personally like ford cars for its built quality but should improve the reliability factor and provide bullet proof and FRIENDLY service to customers which may make wonders for these car.

Obviously you don't want every tom, dick and harry to have a collector's item do you. Looses the charm of an exclusive product you see
