Thumbs up Mitsubishi Cedia Sports - Chicago White

This is the most existing day of my life!!
I have just come back after taking delivery of a Chicago White Cedia Sports
The feeling that you get holding a MOMO steering wheels is OUT of this WORLD.
It is a dream come true.
I have been a fan of the Cedia for a LOONNNG time.

I have got lured into the temptations of a Skoda vRS,
- http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sedans...vrs-cedia.html (Skoda vRS or Cedia?)
- http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sedans...skoda-vrs.html (An experience chasing a Silver Skoda vRS)

I am glad that my relentless search for a vRS did not come through.
Then came a series of pre-owned Cedias and Balenos which just did not come through either.
&
Perpetual confusion between Fiesta 1.6 S and Cedia Sports
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sedans...-2008-a-4.html (Cedia Sports 2008)

Destiny strikes
A walk down the showroom of Southern Motors sealed my desire for the new version of the Cedia Sports

The character that the car emanates is something to be felt
- MOMO steering wheel (WOW!!!)
- Oz Racing alloys
- Sport pedals which give you that feel

Having been smitten by “Follow your heart and Dream”
I decided to go with the Cedia Sports.

What makes this experience even more special is because of
- Mitsubishi Motors involvement
- Southern Motors
They have been with me through every grueling step, I know this marks a fine relationship with Mitsubishi and Southern.
Thank you Mitsubishi!!
Thank you Southern!!

I really appreciate all your help, support and care for the same.

First drive
- Taking a new car out on Bangalore traffic is a jittery experience
- My dad was with me when I was driving and we both were in a state of AWE
- It’s was an experience to drive your own car around and keep wondering what is that auto guy doing in front of my car, why is bike coming so close
- This is not my first car, but my sense of attachment makes it more pronounced

Its pretty dark, I would post pictures of the car very shortly.

Thanks Jerish for a complete feedback and experience on the Ford Fiesta 1.6 S
Thanks to Chiran and my good friend ROC.
The drive in his Cedia Sports helped me to make up my mind.

@raajks: Congratulations on your new ride. Wish you many miles of safe and 'sporty' motoring. I too am a big fan of the Cedia. Waiting for the pics, even night shots would do! (a white Cedia in a night shot would look great).
