all mumbai/pune fiesta ownes can meet some place in common (Lonavala?)

Meetting all fiesta owner members of TBHP together at one place may be difficult.
(as members are spread all over India)?

Thanks
Mumbai - Pune guys can meet at Lonavala, Bangalore and around guys can meet in Bangalore.

I am game for it, seriously somebody take initiative.
Frank your inputs ?

@frankmehta - just because I got the my Fiesta before joining team-bhp, you wont put my name in the list?? My Fiesta is a lot serious than you can imagine.

Eh. Sorry. My bad. Didn't mean to upset anyone. Hope it's all fine!

Hi nairrk, the problem, at least in my case, is that the shifts were not very smooth, there is no jerk from the car. Its just that the gear shifts were not very smooth, but the problem was only with 1st and 2nd gear. Now its much smoother.

@ Frank: At least we can do a mumbai fiesta owners meet
Dude. I am game. A MAHARASHTRA Fiesta meet can be arranged. Who is game ? ( I am loving this!)

Frank I won't mind last week of October or First week of November.

I think you are the best person to start new thread at MEET's section, but let the other's give their feedback or they can PM you.

I don't know what is the process to get entry in Amby Valley, but I have few of good friend's in Sahara Housing Group, if you want I'll ask them.

what the hell was I thinking? It is season in Goa and Nov first week will be just the beginning of tourist season. It will be an ideal place. Now what do you say? I am going anyway.
please add my friend "zaxis" to the list

Ford should thank TBHPians for improving the sales of their cars as more
recommendations by way of review and initial drive reports from the members are the main support for more and more people going in for fiesta's. Better advertisment than what their dealers are giving to boost the sale.
Thanks

Had to leave behind the car in our basement parking for four days. Upon returning I found a minor scratch on the bonnet, something a key dragged across would do. God save the guy if I find him.

Also, bought 3M Car shampoo, 3M Glass cleaner, and Formula 1 wax, from Metro, Yeshwantpur. Could only Wax the bonnet yesterday night, and the result is good. The scratch has filled up a bit.

On a lighter note, the instructions on the Formula1 wax read 'Dampen the applicator', and I literally dampened it with water before using!
