So, finally - a decision made on the variant.
Now about colour - White only?
Cheers!

Thanks @frankmehta, white color is my own choice and my family also love the color, and overall fiesta is the best car in the sedan segment of indian automobiles

I love how Frank put it - DING DING DING we have the winner.

One thing ruchir which I want to recommend is Dont miss on installing the reverse parking sensor.
I was stupid to think that I have been driving since years and I dont need such modern tools to assist my good driving skills. But added them on the pretext that my wife or parents might need them if they ever drove it.

But today I think it has helped me numerous times and i dont feel it as blot on my driving abilities. Its really useful and you will realize this everyday as u reverse the fiesta with confidence.

Reverse parking sensor with 'BEEP' is also good ( I have it on my car)
but initially you may have some confusion to understand. I am doing the reverse parking, totally depending the sensor beep (no looking behind).

Ok, COOL will learn to follow the same, going for booking the fiesta,
any guidelines to follow, I will ask the Dealer to first give me the PDI of the car and then i will go for registration,

All the best I am sure you are all excited. the only Guideline at this moment after you done all the homework and preparation. Stay calm and use your common sense for the PDI. The checks are a good guidelines one also needs to be calm and use his common sense.

Please tell us how it went.

All the best @ruchirtnt and hope to have a nice booking experience with your dealer.
Do not hurry to sign the booking form - see it properly and make sure all offers and freebies, if any are well written in the booking form.
Cheers!

No Freebies for me as I am doing the booking through Corporate, dealer is saying the only benefit he has in corporate sale is the Number of Vehicle Sold and rest there is no such benefit.
Car will come only when the trailer will be completely filled and then only will come to my place.

imo, it is not totally necessary that one should TD a car before going to finalise/buy one. Especially a car like Fiesta where there are plenty of positive feed back from various fiastans.
In fact I bought my car, without a TD, instead I have seen and compared few cars
and also read many reviews prior finalising the car.

Get the white SXi and put the spoiler (without lights). It will look great!

Don't pay the full amount if the dealer does not have the car in stock. Make the payment only after you have physically seen and inspected the car.
