@ nairrk,

why are u going to ford for the alloys. u can get better (and probably cheaper) alloys outside. Is it because of the warranty?

Thanks

@asishgandhi 00
Not only the warranty - I have checked with couple of accessory shops who all said that incase I need to change one alloy (for any reason, inlcuding damage), then I need to buy the full set of 4 alloys. Whereas, Ford can supply one or two alloy as per our requirment. This saves lot of money at later stage?

Nair, looks like you are slowly but surely morphing your car into an SXi.

Wouldnt you be better off getting Vinyl leather seat covers from outside?

@Gilead
Yes, I tried but some how I feel the Ford one's are having good finish than the local one's. Most of the shops are always crowded and I am not able find a proper parking place (I dont want other cars kiss my baby because almost all the shops are on the
Roadside with limited parking area). If I go to Ford dealer,then I am not worried about this as my car is safe under their service section - No heat/no dust no worry about some one hitting my car).?
Thanks

The cost of the car charger is Rs.232/-
i.e Rs.202 price + 30 shipping charges.
This has got chargers for mobile handsets like Motorolla,Nokia,Lg, Samsung

Checked it and working fine !

I have one handset which is in use now.

In any case I bought this multiple charger as it can be used by some one who is travelling with me who may be using other model handset ?).

Thanks

I usually open my PC daily at 9 AM and close at 6 PM.
After checking the email's , I login to TBHP and it will remain till I close the PC.
And in between I keep on looking into threads/posts, and reply to those posts which is of interest to me and also comes within my knowledge/experience.
Thanks

How about having who has which model / version of fiesta ;-), When I was deciding between 1.6S and 1.6SXI i started maintaining followings {I have decided for 1.6SXI and will have one during my b'day-anniversary week in Feb'10 --- Ouch!!! so much to wait but have to cant argue with wify :'( }

1.) 1.6SXI --> jackthecrack, vnabhi, ashishgandhi_00, archer2005, suman, stronghold, Rastapopoulos

2.) 1.4SXI --> rajeshvin, rajivn, oss,

3.) 1.6S --> Govinda-Govinda, frankmehta, ABZ, premjit, sathee46, katalysm76, anachronix

4.) 1.6ZXI --> nairrk, raamki, shajufx, yajaman99,

5.) 1.4ZXI --> kumar7
=============================
Soon I will be starting a Master checklist for Ford Fiesta thread under 'what car' section, once I gather all the information from all of you fiesta masters

So far we have got a list of 45 names who owns a fiesta (different variants).
How about each owners mark their car variant(s or sxi or zxi?) against thier
names? Then we will easily come to know how many S's, how many SXi's etc?
Thanks
