IT's best left NOT PRODUCED! It was like a limited edition production that met with a good response. The exclusivity will remain, and more colours like this will be released. Expect something like this for the Figo as well. Maybe a Figo S (ahem, dreams)

That is exactly the problem with me...In my appx 7yrs of car ownership, I have driven only Ikon & Fiesta (Got my driving lic on the day Fiesta was regd).

Am going to put aside next month for a detailed TDs of all sedans/hatches. And then join in some "informative" bashing..LOL.

==============

Aquarius Blue discontinued...gosh..what happens to Gilead/Frank when they get scratches (on the car, i.e.)...will the a.s.s have the same blue color for repaint. Seems like time for triple teflon coating for the blue S. Now you know, why I went for MS.

Frank has a white so he is good. I have the Aquarius But sourcing paint should not be an issue. Ford regularly discontinues colors. I have a feeling Morello will go next.

Any idea how many S they manage to move in a month? Like 50?

That is being selfish. Already making sure your car has better resale.

My car is white, guys ;-)

And I was dying for the Aquarius Blue, but found the white one for an ULTRA cheap price. Hence bought it. Not ruing the decision though! She looks very pretty in white.


Update:
Crossed 5000 Km yesterday :-P

Only Ford knows for sure. But as of now, the S is still available. Get it now before it's too late if you are really keen on it.

When my car went in for it's rack problem for the first time, someone at Bhavna Ford scraped off the Shaman Ford sticker and put their own. LOL. Pretty cheesy ;-)

Went to Bhavna to have my older rack placed back into the car. The car has almost completed 6 months, hence they offered to complete the 2nd Free service. I agreed. The car is coming back today and I shall be receiving her with open arms.
Engine oil, oil filter and other ancillaries are going to be changed. The bill is Rs. 1104 for the same. Is it fine????


AND, have a look at THIS! Note the circled area in red on this!

I asked what this means. They said I was a JDPower customer.

Dunno what that means but it sure is a pleasure when everyone at the workshop refers to my car as a VIP/JDPower customer's car. Absolutely EVERYONE in the workshop from the Floor manager to the service advisor to the reception staff referred to it as that!

Kishore, Just a couple of shouts and curse-words will get you the VIP-tag. Sometimes, "Jinxed" tag as well. However, both VIP/Jinxed customers are treated equally;-} I am not sure what the F after VIP stands for!!!

In my MPL-Ford/Ikon days, I had this similar thing printed in the job sheet/invoices. Never got any special treatment though. It may have been something to do with my "newbie"-ness I think...so that they can milk obscene amount of money at every visit, without any prior-history of questioning the invoicing/work details - totally at the mercy of the SA. Things are different post TBHP visits, though.

VIP-F Customer = VIP - FORD Customer!?
@frank, you had a rack problem - now you got VIP status?
Enjoy the privileges!

@frankmehta
Hey, that's cool! Congratulations. Here's hoping we see VVIP printed on your 3rd service bill.
