When I was buying my fiesta I too for a momnet thought the door handles should have been chrome . But later thought it might make the car look too chromed up. I guess the way it is now is kind of classy. by the way there are quite a lot of fellow bhpians who think the body colored ORVM looked far better than the chromed ORVM.

Yes, it is quite correct - each one have different taste and style.
If you ask me, I like body colour orvm.

will post few more pics soon
I have got the air deflectors installed...

the pluses
- it somehow look good if you view it from outside.
- you can lower the windows just a little bit during rains, winters to take away the fog on the screens without resorting to a/c, blowers etc..

the negatives
- since these are dark in colour - would add onto the width of A pillar and would restrict the visibility to an extent (my personal observation)
- well the worst part is the noise that it generates post 100 kmph... I hate this to the core and curse myself for getting this on

Take your pick - it's an individual choice anyway...

Good one indeed, dont regret now, when you have invested, enjoy the new look, removing the deflector is always an option with you,
Anyway which brand have you purchased.

I have seen deflectors mostly in SUV's and Amby's and it may somehow look okay for these cars. But harldy seen any sedans having fitted with deflectors?

Sachin - Can you please post some pictures of the sedan with air deflectors. This will definetly help fellow Bhpians to know how the car would look like. then it is upto their liking if they want a sedan with a air deflector or not.


I saw a Logan with air deflectors today while comming to office. It did not look bad nor was it very attractive. I guess it might be because of the structure of logan. For me it was just okay types.

The only regret is only account of noise generated when I touch 100 kmph, as it reminds me of the speed am touching. Which has never been the case with both of my fords. I always felt in control even when driving at speeds of 150 kmph, have touched 170 kmph in my Ikon.

As far as looks are concerned I feel that fine and ofcourse am not toying with the idea of parting with them.

Have got the Ford deflectors from the showroom.

I had paid around 5K for gear lock and air deflectors. Don't remember the break-up right now. Will check the invoice and let you know
