RGK. Searched for storage but the stock reply is that Figo accessories will take some time to be available in the market.

Not sure about other alternatives.

Finally I have seen all the colors of the figo on the road & observed them carefully.

In my opinion the top 3 are The dark grey, the goldenish silver & the White.

The interior shade is similar to one found in some of the BMW M Cars. I kind of like it.

Is it possible to fix a tachometer to Figo ZXI and any recommendation for the same, including price list.

Thanks

The ZXI comes with a tachometer. Do you mean EXI?

Default Tyre pressure.

Has anybody tried putting 36-41 psi in the rear tyres which is the recommended pressure? I usually put 32 in front and 34 in rear. Was thinking of increasing it to 36 in front and 40 in rear next time i get my tyres checked.

All models barring the base Lxi version comes with a tachometer. Guess english was referring to the Lxi version.

That would be Sea grey,chill metallic and diamond white in Figo lingo. Personally, I liked the Chill most. You have to see it in person, the website gives you a erroneous idea.
I feel light and bright colors are the best for Figo

Here in Chennai i see atleast 5 figos in my daily commute.
The most popular colour seems to be the normal mettalic silver (maybe safe choice).
White is the next most popular choice.
Green is the least seen but somehow i feel it looks much better and fresh than it looked in the pics.
maybe @mkerala was right.

I keep 32 in all four tyres. I have a personal feeling if you keep 40 or more at the rear you may loose the comfortness sitting at the rear.

Yes. Trrk's squeeze with red lipped alloys really look very nice.(taken from Trrk's ownership thread)

@RGK why is the manual suggesting a high tyre pressure then? Shouldn't they have put something like 32-34? The interesting thing is even in our fiesta the manual seems to suggest around 36+ but seems like we have been using only 32 all this time.

@vishnurp99. Yes need to test by keeping 41 and see the comfort of the ride. But the higher values are for all full load.

Depends on the number of people sitting inside the car. I drove to Bangalore and back with 36 in front and 41 in rear. Comfort was good. Or I didnt notice.
