A "Repeat Order" deserves a separate thread on its own;-}

i can see that you have explored every car i guess before going for your 'Fida' and can see the effort you had made in finalising your dream car. Very few people go for such extensive test drive before purchasing, appreciated! and I believe you must be enjoying this paprika red beauty especially the handling of it!

do let us know its pros n cons accordig to you after running a while.

CPC2 is one of the best tyres out there! I am having great difficulty in finding one for my Fiesta as well ( I want to stick to the stock size though)
I so wanted the 195/60 R14 CPC2's - But they were not in stock and the distributor could not give a firm date of availability.

Check if Tyrestore has it in stock. They can help you with the shipping I guess!

anybody can give any insight on the original FOrd Fiesta Spoiler and is it viable to go for it and above all can we remove it when needed,

Ford dealer is offering the same at 10.5k and after market is selling the same at 2.2K

its a major difference.

I got myself at the time of purchase for 10K for the non-Sports version. The sports version costs a little more.

I have no idea regarding the OEM vs after-market benefits. Quality/Paint matching may be an issue. Removing the same also may be a problem, since either it is soldered or fixed into holes - removing in future will leave ugly marks.

Why don't you guys personally check the after-market one's. if it feels ok & the color matching is not an issue, go for it..I mean it is a addon-accessory (with no performance/safety/electronics related side-effects). Even if lasts for a year without rusting etc, you can always throw it away and go for the original later on, or every year install a new design spoiler for 5 yrs considering the price difference;-}

If you are getting a spolier, get the S one. It looks better than the regular spoiler. After market ones are prone to rattling after a while and the noise will drive you crazy. And you can't do much about the holes in the boot after that. You will have to get another spoiler to cover it up. It's either pay now or pay later. Get the OEM spoiler now itself.

somebody in the forum suggested that the spoilers are connected through clips and can be detached later without holes in the boot, is it so, because as far as i have seen, it is always a hole in the boot,

so once it is installed, we have to keep it always.

Spoilers on clip ????

somebody tell me that can be done.
They look good; particularly the ones on the S.
The only reason i dont want to have one is the thought of someone punching holes on the car.
That for me is a cardinal sin.
But clips ????
Would that be stable at speeds; i'd say thats unfeasible.
But i have been wrong in the past; anyone who knows about this ???

I don't think that clips can hold a spoiler in speeds of 50-60 kmph or more. I really doubt.
