A few more picture about the features. Frank has already given a detailed image+desc summary in his cargasm post. And i am so jealous that he has left nothing for other fiesta owners to show off.
But I will still go ahead and post a few for those who want to see more of the Fiesta.

He's giving some story about 3rd party insurance being higher 'cos the engine displacement is above 1.5L.

FYI, for my ZXi, Ford arranged the insurance (free offer) and the premium
amount shown in the insurance certificate is Rs.17,666 for an insured value of the car Rs.6,16,284
Thanks

One query though has the chrome inserts(my car has three but no airbags as it was not available then)in the steering wheel disappeared due to the inclusion of airbags.

Yep, you are right Yogi! The other 2 chrome inserts disappeared when airbags were introduced.
But with 3 chrome inserts, the steering used to look more classy.

BTW Rastapapoulous---the pics are nice. Wow, a DTE reading of 569!!! You must be driving real sedately to get that kind of a reading. I got it only once or twice in the past 2.5 years, that too after a long highway drive! My reading on refill varies from 480 to 520.

Thanks vnabhai.
I am wondering if a sedate Fiesta drive is a compliment or Pun. Just kidding.
My daily route is 20 kms largely 2 lanes with fast moving traffic. except a few kms which is single lane. So on way to office I am as usual late and so at a comapritive higer speed than return. While on my way back I usually like to have a smooth drive listening to my music forgetting the office worries and head home. The return journey can be categorized as sedate

Nice pictures there. Btw, where did you the spoiler fit from. I was surprised to see it with a Brake light. The stadard Ford Spolier doesnt have a brake light. And how much did you pay for it?

Its not the original ford accessory. The original For spoiler doe snot have a light. I chose for a spoiler which I got for almost hal;f the price of the original plus got a brake light. The finishing for this spoiler is not as good as the original would have.

Congrats Moonraker whats the color of your Fiesta? I did not try the aux in, I guess I will check the mp3 issue in detail and then update everyone on what happens ! !

Mine was a platinum ZXI. Wanted to go in for silver but the dealer informed that he cannot make the delivery before diwali and i settled for Platinum.

Nice color. I also had come down to Platinum and Silver as the last 2 options. But chose Silver over Platinum.

Congrats!

Very Nice Pics. The SXI Premium is definitely VFM and silver is the color to counter the chrome.
