Anyways i will keep the news flowing.

PS - If there is no launching news from ford india about the new fiesta sedan or a figo 1.6 by the year end then i am going to buy myself a current gen fiesta 1.6S to replace my ikon. Decision is final
I too own an 2004-Ikon flair and no AC service has been done till date. Great job by Ford on the aircon systems.

Good decision to buy the 1.6S - I endorse it! So will you be looking to replace the Ikon by year end or earlier?

And now a really stupid question for you, Mustang.
Is it any ways possible to get a Figo in any other color that exists currently on the Fiesta line up but not on the Figo (read Paprika Red) ?

first @Gemi : I am still going to be regular on team-bhp but not with a lot of inside info. But still will try my best.

I am going for year end only as that time i will accumulate the necessary funds required so its Q4 2010 for me.

Any other color? No you cant. If I could do it, i would buy a figo right now in the aquarius color & also fit a 1.6 duratec in it.

but sadly thats not possible, I think even our MD cant do that for himself, lol

Not that much money in my hand. For the last one year i am increased my budget every day and reached 4.5 lakhs from 2.5 lakhs. I will be using figo not that often, may be 3 or 4 times a month. Because we have two scooters here and use it. Family trips are not that often. I am student and this is our first car(Owned few old ones years ago), so don't need a diesel which will cost me nearly Rs 1 lahks more.

My father had owned few cars few years back and sold them when he went abroad. Till last year I had been with a 93 model(First generation) zen which my uncle owned. He sold it. So we decided to buy a new car.

You know guys, i got license few months back only.

@Mustang

By the way mustang at which department you will working at delhi? Why did go for transfer request? Is delhi better for you? Hope that department will be much useful for team-bhpians some how.

Thank you very much for all the insider information. I think you will be really missing your friends in Chennai

hmm.. The salesperson was trying to woo me towards a Black Figo with coral dash.. but it wasn't on display. I assumed he is trying to push off something that he has in stock .. and continued booking as per my colour preference.

Well, it does look beautiful in these pics... feels good to know that my apprehensions about the salesperson were wrong. (atleast until now)

So you will be getting a lot less insider info from my side but i will be travelling to Chennai every month for 3-4 days & I will try & bring you the latest from the plant.

No Pics from my side though now. Plus Delhi guys, You will be able to see both of my cars in Chennai, Both have team-bhp stickers on them.
Hi Mustang,

Welcome back to Delhi! Chennai's loss is Delhi' gain.

BTW, did you mean - "Plus Delhi guys, You will be able to see both of my cars from Chennai, Both have team-bhp stickers on them."

I have a question. The Zxi and Titanium models sync with the phone thru Bluetooth, what exactly does this do?

If I get a call when I am driving, will I be able to answer the call and hear the other person's voice in the car's speakers? How will they hear what I am saying, in other words where is the "mic" that I speak into?

Sorry if this is a stupid question...

I appreciate all the work you have done Mustang.
Proof - I booked the diesel today. This thread and the prices thread has motivated me to do so. Not Ford Marketing or any other factor.

That's part of Ford Marketing. Slightly inflated price leak and forum support for potential customers. Proof: Thread popularity Good move by Ford.

I also had the same question. Nut i guessed that there is a Mic. After all a Mic is cheap. So ford would have added it.
