Your rubber mats look good, Nair. Let me see if I can procure them as well. You are right. The Ford mats have gotten dirty due to the rains.

sathee, thanks! You are going to be disappointed if you thought frank and I were planning some secret performance mod. Take a look at this. It's a classic and ultra cool. Features the original Ford logo. Keychain - Gifts & Accessories - The Ford Collection

Ramsagar, thanks. The Cedia is a fantastic drivers car as well, no doubt. But it was a bit beyond my budget.

Gilead, so finally your report is here. Good succinct writeup. The Blue 1.6S makes my knees go weak. Wishing you a wonderful experience with the Blue monster.

Default Keychain

Guys, take a look at my new keychain, courtesy frankmehta. It features the classic Ford logo and the finish is beautiful. Can't wait to show it off tomorrow.

Can i also get one of these goodies? What is the process or procedure to acquire one? Will this key chain be shipped to India or should we ship it to someone in US and then to India? Frank or Gilead can you help... The key chain looks amazing. I am sure there would be more requests coming your way.

@gilead: One observation, i see that you have the key tag (black plastic one) attached to your regular key. Please have it removed and store it in a safe place, that tag has the key code and if you want to make a duplicate the code is required by FORD.

Frank bought it on the Ford site and an importer handled the formalities here. You can PM frank for the details. You should have raised your hand when frank put up a post asking if anyone else wants this keychain. Lucky I saw that post.

Yes, know that now. I was thinking there was another Team BHP Black S in Chennai.
