Its the problem of you computer not the ISP. You need to update or reinstall the flash player.

Adobe Flash Player

Try open in other browser, best on I.E. I have a few seconds delay on google chrome as you picture above. But it will load after 30 seconds.

Sid, are you able to play Youtube? Try that and if not, you might need to install the Adobe flash plugin.

Probably some compatibility issue with Windows 7 and the Flash version you are using.

Do other websites with Flash load in your PC?

WHY?
Below are the screenshots. The flash content does not load, even after I disabled the antivirus.

Dang - I just heard from inside sources that Employee discount wont kick in until after 6 months.

After 6 months, Ford could hike the price and that would make no sense buying it later as it would revert back to the introductory price probably(with discount).

Mustang - got any ideas on this?

Does figo need a under body coating? I have seen many dealers of small car keep insisting on under body. Is that really necessary?

I dont think you need to go in for a under body coating, manufacturers have already tested vehicle paint protection for corrosion resistance. Dealers insists on it because they earn a good margin on such jobs.

<<<I am ready for a acid test. Tell me when you TD it. We did extensive tests in India, south africa , australia & even in Europe with the figo. Temperatures ranging from -10 degrees to 50 degrees, Humidity ranging from 5% to 100%, inclines ranging up till 47 degrees. Kilometers = In lakhs.>>>

Like many of us, everyone wants a VFM car and expect a lot. GTO's review and your inside info makes more interesting to do a TD and see the performance. Heard from some of Ford guys that even on Sundays people are asked to come and work in the Figo project. No body is against your views and infact eager to hear more and more secrets about Figo... Lets hope for a killer price from Ford..

Not needed. Just a way to make money. I think there's a dedicated thread for that.

The brochure shows fog lamps but they are not a fixture even on the titanium. Guess should take about 3-4k to get them fixed. I'm sure a lot of features will appear when ford releases a "special" edition.

I checked a fiesta TDCI special edition that is 7.43lacs on road that has a lot of features that you wont get for the 8lacs on the regular fiesta. So there is lot of hope for figo to get special bits on special editions.
