Hey jagan
What dealer did you go with? How was the experience? And where are you getting it serviced, same place or a different one?
Doing some research to see which dealer is better- lathangi or metro.

I booked a Sea Gray 1.6 SXi (does that make me number 4 in the Sea Gray owner's club ? ) yesterday for my wifey... I already have a 4 year old SXi Moondust Silver, and have loved every one of the 75000 kms! Add the 1 lakh plus on my old Ikon, and the Endy I bought last week, I am floating in Ford heaven

For all those debating which hatchback, sedan or SUV to buy, one simple advice - go for a Ford baby

I don't think anyone on TBHP has got a sea grey 1.6S. Capt Rocker has booked one and should be posting photos soon. Search on other forums in the meantime.

Wow @siddesh that's quite a collection of Fordy's you got there. I was just wondering I am yet to get over with the Fiesta effect how are you managing so many Ford's. Would request you to post some pics of the beasts you have in your backyard.
I am sure you would choose Figo, this would complete you collections. Maybe Ford will use your garage as the showroom

Congrats amit verma! Which Variant? One of the best color for Fiesta for its matured look!

hey jagan

i dont know how i missed this thread. congrats mate! :-) many years of great driving. i wanted you to put up some pictures of the cubby holes in the car (storage aspects) if possible. I think I ll check with ford shortly on the car as well. Who cares if the new fiesta is about to be launched now? I am sure it will be hell a lot costly.

Ghodlur, check out my garage for some pics of the Ikon, Fiesta and my Endy. Will post a detailed review complete with pics of the new baby as soon as she comes!

@Geeksrik, I think you should come over and take a look at the car as the photographs may not do it justice (esp with the crappy cameras that I own). Suffice to say, there is adequate space for storage in the cabin.

my car is also getting ready for its second due service, is it advisable to go for teflon and anti rust coating now, the ford service station is charging 3500 for anti rust coating of 3M and is providing the teflon coating free with it.

You can read my long-term review---I've uploaded my FE figures in it.
I've never got less than 11 kmpl so far. Of late, on my return from a 3-month stint abroad, I have been getting a little over 11 kmpl---the car was used little in my absence-- only 700 kms in 3 months.

I remember getting 11.5 to 12 in the prior summers. I shall add sytem g to my car and see if it makes a difference.

Perhaps traffic in Cal is bad---I heard it is a lot better now after many trams have been decommissioned, but I have horrific memories of it in the mid-80s.

hey congrats amit,

its a very good choice that you have made and will enjoy it to the hilt.

The color is also great. its a new color and i havent seen any other Fiesta in this color till now.. not atleast in Delhi..
