Default My White Fiesta SXI

INITIAL OWNERSHIP REPORT

Love the Fiesta i got delivered on Christmas Eve, it was a wonderful day and i loved the day more because it was my fiesta delivery day.
It was a overall nice experience at the dealership since all the paper work and payment were already settled.
I carried the list of PDI with me (mostly jotted down with the help of fellow fiestians),
got the following accessories installed at the dealership only:

1. Floor mat
2. Boot mat
3. Mud flaps
4. Sporty pedal kit

Got the Sunfilm installed from Garware dealer:

1. Icecool Windshield with 94% Infrared protection
2. Icecool Grand with 70% Heat rejection

I am happy with my decision to go for a Fiesta over other models like city and SX4,
I have driven only 75 km till now, that is because we have put a new gate and it takes time for the gate to get fixed, that is why the mason told me to open the gate after 5-6 days (car is standing in the garage and waiting for a long drive)
So, took the car out yesterday with outmost care so that the gate position should not get disturbed.

Congratulations ruchirtnt!
You might want to take some pictures & post them while you are waiting for the gate to set.

Congrats. I saw pics of your car in the other thread but we need a few more here. What are the other accessories/mods planned for the car? I read somewhere that you planned to put the S bodykit as well.

Regardimg accessories planned.:
All okay except that of Air Deflecter, which may take away the beauty of a Sedan.
So think twice before going in for this accessory.
Also you bonnet ribbon is still there (or these are photographs taken on delivery)?
Time to throw it away !
Cheers!

@ruchirtnt - I thought the SXI comes with Chrome OVRMs. Yours are in body color.

Congrats Buddy,
Please post landscape images.
I agree with Nair saab- Air deflectors will take away the look of your sedan. Also I really dont see a use if you would have your windows closed 90% of the time.
Post some outdoor pics too.

Congrats on the Fiesta. Wishing you many more miles with it. The car looks great in White. Didnt know that the SXI had chrome ORVMs.

Drive safe.

Pour more & more pics

Yesterday my M/C completed formal 3 months and ready for its first servicing which is scheduled for this friday. With 3 months of ownership experience I can say that whenever you take control of steering wheel you enjoy every meter you drive.

Its awesome that everyones day starts & close with this Josh m/c

Happy Motoring!
