It is not the first time I am having a Black colour car.

My last 2 cars (Maruti zen Estillo and Hyundai Accent) were also Black.
I had the Hyundai Accent when I was in Chennai and it was extensively used /travelling in chennai roads. My parking slot in the apartment was a open space. When I sold the car after 3.5years it was looking very fresh.
I wash my cars daily by ordinary water (since daily washing -one bucket of water is sufficient,incase water shortage). once in 15days with carwash(shampoo), once in 3 months-waxing/polishing, and proper/timely servicing - all these will keep the car fresh and shining.

I had no problem in maintaing a black car- for me it is like any other colour. Ofcourse others will have different opinion?

true, anyway having a accent is a great choice, i too like accent a lot,
but as i am 6'2" tall it is difficult for me to adjust in it otherwise i would have anyway gone for accent only.

The FIesta Premium in white is really beautiful in flesh and blood, till now i have seen only the snaps on net and TBHP, but when i got hold of one in the showroom yesterday,
It is attractive, the chrome (or more likely close to silver) looks good with the White

Yes indeed, white is good common colour.
But only thing is that you can find so many white colour cars of various make on the road plus most of the government cars in white so like you are in a big crowd. Wheras other colors will give different look and attraction among the crowd.

I too have seen a white fiesta when I went to book my car, and ofcourse it looked very nice with black B pillars and tinted glass(window)-certainly an attraction it was (my dealer also pushed me to take the white).

Now this white color is posing problem for delivery, the dealer is able to deliver any SXI color except White, but i am inclined towards white only

Surprising, normally white is available in stock with all dealers or readily available with Ford and one should get it within 7 days from booking.

Are they trying to push other colours which is their in the yard?

You have only one Ford dealer in your area? If more than one, you sould check with
others too?

So with this huge crowd and more responses, feel you will not get any
freebies or other discounts from your dealer other than what FORD is offering on the cars? Probably if one more dealer in your place, definitely you should have got some more benefits (competition benefit the customer!)

Yes, that is important.
Since you have got only one dealer in your area and you had to go back to them for all future services and if any other emergency work, hence keep a cordial relationship with the dealer

Addition of a Ford spoiler will enhance its beauty.
