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.
Kept that in mind and i have told the sales guy that i will make the payment of around 48k on the delivery day,
In respect to spoiler, the sales guy is quite nice and told me that i should go for accessories from after market as it will be very cheap, but asked me to go for ford spoiler only because as per him it is very good in quality and good looking too. But it is quite expensive.
Its around 9k where in the aftermarket it is costing 1200 only.

Aftermarket at 1200 is dead cheap. I think either its of VERY poor Quality or the figure is incorrect.
The Original Ford spoiler definitely looks gorgeous. White Fiesta with a original spoiler is a brilliant combo.

DON'T put the 2K duplicate spoiler. It will start rattling after a month and drive you nuts. And then if you want to get rid of it, you will have to get rid of the boot lid as well as there will be holes in it. If you want a spoiler, put the genuine Ford spoiler only. They look and feel great. The regular one costs ~8K and the sports one costs ~12K.

What is a sun defractor?

Buy the scuff plates and sports pedals from Ford. You can get te rest from outside.

Sun defractor is the one which is put on the window skirts for saving from sun and rain showers, its costing 3k in ford and 600 outside.

Rs.1200 for a FORD original spoiler - Definitely impossible. it may be duplicate with ford name embossed on it. If such difference in price on a original product of Ford then no one will buy any accessories from Ford Dealer?

Is this the plastic (glass look) item and it projects towarad down with a
curve ?. ( I have seen many amby' and suv's with this product) I dont think this will give a good look on a sedan?

Correct, it is a duplicate only, the Ford guy is suggesting me to buy Spoiler from Ford only as it is quite nice and rest can be taken from aftermarket

I agree to nairkk. The sleeky stylish look of a sedan would be lost with those projections.

Also from a functionality point what I understand is that this is useful only to avoid rain water to trickle in or hot air waves from entering the car during monsson and summers respectively.
But I dont think you would be driving the Fiesta with your windows rolled down. largely due to the pollution (air+sound) and the aerodynamics for longer drives.

IMHO dont think of these as of now. These are not so costly accessories and can be fitted later if you really feel the requirement.

I also thought the same thing, but that plastic defractor is costing 3k from Ford,
i am planning for the following accessory at the moment:

1. Mud Flap
2. Mats - Floor and Boot
3. Body Cover
4. Sporty Pedal
5. Scuff Plates
6. Sun Film

Please suggest which one to buy from Ford only, and which one from After Market

You are missing the reverse parking sensors as an accessory. For that either go with what the dealer has to offer or an after market.
