Where is the car? In Cochin? If it has come, then they can register it on Monday and give it that evening itself. Tue is generally not a good day. Not sure if you believe in all that though.

Every day is equally good and bad to me.

Don't know about it. As per RSM, it will reach dealer on Sunday morning or night. So getting it one Monday or Tuesday as per my dealer.

No problem i can wait for a couple of days more.

I hate to blow my own trumpet, but since my "forecasting credentials" are up in the air, thought this will bolster the same:

Mustang, any news on what vols Ford will be happy with?

Suggest current Ford owners pre-pone their service schedules and complete the same this month itself;-}
Actual Figo figures published in the March Sales thread: 7210.

Mustang, any openings in Ford in accurate forecasting, pls let me know

What I meant was that if you're a poor bloke like me, and you go a tyre huntin' the cheapest tyre you'll find in the market will either be an Apollo or Goodyear or a JK with max discounts too. A rung above will be Bridgestones/MRF etc. Right at the top are Pirellis and Contis etc. This is, if you compare the cheapest of company A with the cheapest of Company B (remember, if you're a poor bloke like me!!)

BTW the Figo is selling like the proverbial hot cakes, I'm already seeing more of these than puntos/Polos. At 7000+ in the first month this debut is better than Tendulkar's

@ windiesel : Wealth is measured in terms of other abilities & not just a bank balance. Are you a britisher? You called yourself a bloke

Hey bro, you do sound like Lord Krishna teaching the meaning of life to Arjun in The Holy Gita.
Me a Brit? just because I travel from Nottingham to Birmingham and from Lancashire to Derbyshire in my private De Havilland Mosquito wearing my Manchester United shirt and Oxford shoes while firmly entrenched in my armchair? No sir, I am just a poor bloke!!

(For the exact meaning of Bloke see this:
bloke - Wiktionary
it just means an ordinary person on the street with no particular reference to Nationality)

Now this thread is really going OT.

Latest report is that the squeeze with ebony is getting delayed. I guess it might not be so latest as thats the prevailing condition.

When i contacted, RSM told it will be available only after mid may.

Go for coral as it is less heated in the sun.

Its pretty much the case since Day 1 of figo launch.

I am referring to both the statements you have made

Better to go with coral or change exterior color.

For avoiding a few weeks wait, I dont want a color I dont like. Not that Coral is bad. But black is what I'm used to.

Stock is avaliable in white and red(apparently). But I've been dreaming only of the Squeeze.

I think I'm under the "herd effect".

Quote:
Herd behavior describes how individuals in a group can act together without planned direction. The term pertains to the behavior of animals in herds, flocks, and schools, and to human conduct during activities such as stock market bubbles and crashes, street demonstrations, sporting events, religious gatherings, episodes of mob violence and even everyday decision making, judgment and opinion forming.
Seeing some people getting their cars, I get the impression that I'm somehow being cheated of a deal. And that anxiety is playing havoc with my judgement and patience.

I think I need to take a break from this forum. Too stressful.
