I don't think anyone older than 3 years can come out the rolled down windows. They roll only half way down.

Very true. But I don't think the lack of rear power windows should be a deal breaker. If they only go down 60%, they just require one turn of the handle.

Well, not exactly one turn of the handle but I agree, they're not really a bother to turn down all the way either.
Regards no rear power windows, it's a user preference thing. For me, it would actually be a deal maker!

Is this offer for diesel model ? Although you have mentioned tdci vxi, just to confirm again as vxi model is not in Figo.
In Bangalore, I was offered free parking sensors, seat covers, perfume and polish only for titanium diesel.
Can any one tell me how much parking sensors costs without display?

Thanks

Yes highoctance. It is for the zxi diesel. The same applies to the titanium as well. I am trying to push them a little further for the titanium and get my on road Mumbai to around 6.8 lacs. They will get back to me today.

I have been quoted 6.80 for Titanium black panther ex Navi Mumbai. Seeing your quote I believe there is still some scope of negotiation. Is 6.8 ex Mumbai that you are getting with octroi or without octroi?

It's with octroi. But they have not agreed yet. 7 is what they are stuck at. Hopefully will get them to come down considering the facelifted version will be out in 3 to 4 months

@Shadow - they may also use the impeding tax on diesel cars here

Or they have another buyer pick it up at the price they want to sell, I lost on a great deal on the Chevy Beat, I ended up buying the Figo, a better car.

I am not sure about the present rates and mode of fixtures, Parking sensors were offered to me @2k when I was buying Figo last October, Sales agent told me that its sound alert system. Like it will beep, beep if there was no obstacle or if the obstacle was far away, it will beep continuously if there is any obstacle.

I think these sensors can be fixed on any variant of the vehicle, no matter if its petrol or diesel. It must work :-)

Few kids have done some mischief with my Car's rear wiper and it wipes just 20% of the area and then goes below the glass area.

Will I have to take it to a Ford a.s.s or any competent mechanic will do?

You will have to open the hatch plastic cladding and then realign the wiper motor.

That reminds me, need to get my Figo's rear wiper blade changes. It's not wiping properly.
