I need the following:
1. Metallic trim on the door handles
2. Sun Film
3. Body coloured side door moulding with chrome (Are they kidding? 7K for that!)

P.S: They've earned thousands servicing my Ikon
Except for the sunfilm, have attached an accessory price list XLS from both chennai dealers in my post in the 59th page..you can refer that. In case you find some major difference, pls keep us posted.

From Chennai Ford, got a quote of 13K for Huper Optik sunfilm - for all windows (side+rear+front) if i remember correctly.

Sanjayji, may be we can classify "Driving Fiesta" and "Watching Fiesta" for the listing. Even the 'booked' category can come in the 'driving' gang, because they have put money on the table already. 'Watching' gang will include even people who will ditch this group and prefer the 'men are back' gang.

"MEN" group, no intentions to fight with anyone, please dont take it personally. I would not tell anyone to buy a Fiesta because I drive one, instead I would ask anyone to drive as many different brands as possible before taking the final decision.

You may have to CURSE the company (Ford).
We, all have already owned one and happy for our decision to buy fiesta and our report was solely based on our satisfaction on the car.!
(For your information, I too did not TD the car)

Thanks for the replies guys.

Chennai Ford Prices
Mettalic trim on door handles: Rs.1050
3M Sun Film: Rs.3490
Body coloured side moulding with chrome: Rs.7050 (Not taking this now)

We'll get some Ford Employee discounts later so thought of picking up the moulding then. Earlier they had given leather-vinyl seat covers for 5K, alloys for 12K etc.

Shaju already replied on your suggestion.

Let us not spam this thread opening so many categories like you suggested. Initially there was only "Ownership list" but now 'added Booked list' and feel thats enough?

So you car has arrived and you are heading there soon for PDI?
So what decision you took - are you going to register now or wait for January dates?

Metallic door handles -rate seems okay
body side moulding - expensive

Vinyl leather seat cover - 5000? It cannot be of FORD seat cover as that
costs Rs.10,000+ and alloys Rs.16000+ (the same one fitted in SXI models)(see my thread where the photographs of the seatcover and alloys can be seen).

Will most probably do the PDI today/tomm. Since I am taking the insurance on my own, will get the cover note on 18th it seems. Will have the regn done on 18th itself..it has been raining past 2 days here and bad weather forecast is there for next 2-3 days. Some plans may go haywire becos of this.

I am not too concerned about resale value..will be keeping this car for the next 5-6 yrs minimum, if all goes well..so the dealer themselves will do the regn on/before 18th.

The seats and alloy prices are for ford employees Not offered all through the year. Offered at times. Benefits of working with ford

kiku, are you a Ford employee? If you are, then these prices sound okay. Else they are a bit low.

wow, thats a good rate.
Try to get it soon before they change the prices.
On the alloys -they have got two models -one is the old model (which all dealers are still trying push through) and the other one is similar to the one of SXI variant. Go for this SXI variant model alloys.

I do not think doing registration in new year is of any benefit except the expiry year will have a benefit of one year, anyway there are hard chances that person will keep a car for 20 years (Till registration expires)
