hey ruchirtnt,

Its the alignment issue mate ! You should be careful with the guys who are checking pressure. I mean the way he checks it, rather the way the pressure is applied on the valves to check.

This has got a lot to do, since the person checking may leave the valve out of alignment, which causes the air to escape between the valve base and the tyre wall.

i have had this issue with my scorpio, atleast this is what my tyrewalla made me understand.

Air deflectors ? well i always thought its called the window visors ! Its useful to put down the glass a bit during the rains, without getting the rain water in to get some fresh air, if one is too sensitive to A/c

Posting some snaps of the Scuff plates installed, got it from Ford at Noida,

The Ford dealer at lucknow was telling that my car is the first to install the scuff plates in their entire fiesta dealership experience. Felt great to hear that.

Nope the car bends are left as such, and i have not added anything to it.

following is the link which shows that the FOrd provides a majority of accessories for Ikon but not for Fiesta.
