Due to Vitamin M problems, had to choose the Exi (SPL) version.

hai, when your car will be ready for delivery - did you check with your dealer recently???
Please update!

Does this mean that the HU is worth 15k?? (you said the difference is 17k from the original cost of the DX5032) and the dealer or any specific accessory shop agreed to buy the HU?

I guess Ruchir has budgeted upto 15K for the vx140 or whatever model for the gps thing..and hence the addl diff of 17K to buy the HU is the issue.

EDIT:
Just got an update on my order with dealextreme..they have asked for an addl payment of 8.4 USD for air shipment in addition to 13 USD already paid alongwith original order. Guess, this is becos of my request to ship all 3 items in separate packaging to avoid customs issue.

Yes, you are right - probably the MMI vx 140 for 15k.
if he opt for DX5032, then he dont need the VX140 hence the difference of 17k he calculating and straight away he can purchase the DX5032 at rs.32k

A very nice thread indeed. I read most of it before buying mine.

many members ordered and almost all of them got the pack except me.
Since the parcel was not recieved on time, I have asked for the refund which was approved by ebay. Now I am planning to order the product again (subject to the listing will be still there).

Hope this time I succeed?
I bought it through a very simple step.
1. Got Mr. Nitin Singh's number - + (91) - 9921000264 from Contact Us page in www.jopasu.com
2. Called up and got local distributer's number
3. Called them and ordered it.
4. Got it next day with bill after paying the MRP.

You can try this way too.

@mayukh

Good that you also got this product.
am waiting for the refund amount to be credited back to my account.
But I feel they dont have a distributer near my place as I have already checked with certain car accessory shops here and they have no clue about this product!

Once you get your refund, you can try talking with Nitin once. He may help you in delivering the product (if possible by post).

How did you make the payment - advance payment?
because if we pay via ebay, then the refund is assured,in case the product is not delivered within 10days. whereas if we pay direct to them, how do we get the money back if something wrong with their despatch?

(I paid the money on 6th December 2009, seller sent to me a confirmation through ebay that material couriered on 10th December (he took 4 days to pack/courier the product) with a guarantee that the product will be delivered to me within 21st december. I waited till 23rd december and then applied for the refund. (In between I spoke to mr Pankay twice but seems they never despatched to product to me at all)

Not possible. With all the bangles and rings in her hand, I dare not to get scratches without any fault of mine. Also, I have a opinion that very few people can take good care of things and my wife does not comes in this list.

I think when you exchange the pedicure time with the car cleaning, there naturally arises an issue which is not covered by Ford warranty !!! So, dont cut down the time you used to spend for wife (pedicure, manicure, shoulder massage etc.), but try to clean the car when she is sleeping or cooking. Be brave and be a true Fiestian !!
She indeed loves happily moving around in a sparkling clean car. But now she want to enjoy only the happiness, without the cost of labor.

Want an example? She always wished to drive a four-wheeler as she cannot drive a two-wheeler. We too decided we will be both driving our Fiesta. She was also supposed to start her driving lessons from January last. But after being driven in the rear bench for last couple of days, she is now not very eager to start driving classes. She even insists to be driven from now onwards. Sad to see such a huge change of intentions.

I paid only after home delivery, but to a distributer's person only.

This is only possible when you have a distributer nearby.
Anyway once the money in my account will talk to them and see if they have any other altrenatives to despatch the product on time?

One moment I thought you are talking about my wife (the italics part) !!! Here the difference is, my wife holds a driving license from 2001 (as many women do for the sake of it), and has also successfully got a middle east license in 2004 (costed me 50k until the 3rd test). She can take my honda activa in a stright line, not possible to turn left or right, LOL. Now after having a maternity leave of 9 months she has forgotten everything, in other words, all the driving skils are gone to dogs !! So, except a drive around my compound (less than 2 kms), I havent allowed her to take the fiesta till today. But now I feel she should start taking it out, than enjoying the co-passenger comfort all the time.

Are we changing this thread title to "Fiestians, Wives, Kids and Pets" ??

yes, looks like (but believe there is already a thread on pets?).
What I can understand is that you spend all those money (50k plus) to
obtain multiple licences. Suggest send her for a refresher course(driving) and let her start driving your Fiesta and then you can enjoy the Backseat comfort-

Nairji, she was driving in the middle east without issues, but our return was an immediate decision, otherwise I wouldnt have thought of an expensive license there. Now this 1 year break has put her back to a newbie, although the skills can be regained within a month of regular driving.
