The alloys and leather seat covers prices I have quoted were offered sometime before, not now. May be they'll offer it in March-10 again.

For all those who did not do TD before you booked, I can vouch for Fiesta - not just because I own one, but based on my TD experiece. I had tested SX4, Verna and Linea before I made up my mind last August. Now after 4 months and 6400+ kms, I'm happy and a proud Fiestian like many others in this Forum

Make that 72 or 73 (+1 to the current no.)to the owner's list Nairji. Got my Platinium ZXI delivered yesterday. Took almost 4 hours for the whole delivery process which includes 1.30 hrs at the bank to get the DD ready, take the bank manager to hand it over to the dealer. As i had mentioned before, Canara Bank has this policy of handing over the DD themselves to the dealers. Spent close to 2 hours on PDI, took a good TD again although i had checked the vehicle last week as well. And around 30 mins after i approved to the dealer for delivery.

Everything was absolutely fine and I have loved every bit of that 30km drive i have had on this baby so far. Wanted to go for a long drive but have not been well for the past 2-3 days so just resting for a day or 2 before i go for a really long drive.

Will be writing a detailed message on my whole experience along with the pics very shortly.

'20 years from now' sounds like a totally different world, generation and technology. With the present global warming, shortage of drinking water and many other necessities, we might be all forced to dump all our present cars and go the hybrid way. Seriously, all the roads in the universe might be filled with REVA type cars. Fiesta hybrid, Honda hybrid, Toyota hybrid etc.

There is no gurantee petrol or diesel will be sold in 2030, even if it is, water will be costlier than petrol. How many of you thought of paying money for drinking water 20 yrs back ?

Congratulations on becoming the proud owner of Fiesta

Take enough rest before you fire for a long drive.

Safe drive - Cheers !

Shaju - How about @kiku007 getting all the parts of a fiesta through his friend working in Ford at a discounted price and we assemble it elsewhere-
worth saving couple of Lakh rupees

Congrats. That is indeed a Dec manufactured car. Good luck wading through the muck at the Poonamalee yard. Don't get a heart attack if your car looks dirty as hell. It will be cleaned up well.

We have always been paying water charges and tax. But I am looking forward to driving an electric Fiesta with a fake exhaust note in the year 2030.

If Kiku really wants, he can make enough extra every month even if he acts as a mediator. So comeon Kiku, post 'your' price list, lets see which one to order first !! My spoiler is a guranteed order for you.

I dont think its possible, Gilead. Noise pollution department might seize your car then. Imagine a world with only hybrid vehicles, there will be midnight silence around the roads 24/7 !!

This is yet another proof and certificate from a HAPPY Fiesta owner
Those who short listed and want to buy Ford Fiesta but some doubt somewhere in mind (about ford cars) can take above words and go for FIDA without any second thought?

Guys I work for the IT division and not at the plant

Here's a surprise - The dealer all along swore that Employee pricing is NA for the 1.6ZXi. Spoke to the Ford Plant Sales team and they made sure that the dealer gave me the right pricing which is 5.37L ex-showroom

Only Rs. 5.37L for 1.6ZXi ex show room price?
Previous showroom price for this car was Rs.6.48L (if I remember, for new model they have increased another Rs.5000 or so?)
so you are getting a discount of Rs.1.11L or more??

Oh Kiku, my long lost friend, we need to meet up soon !!! My rear looks boring without those spoilers !!

Nairji, I stuck the transparent sticker which you gave me, the other 'Live to Drive' is not yet finding the right spot. I was walking around the car for 15 mts holding that yellow monster sticker, my security guy asked me "Sir, are you doing some pooja walking around your car"?
