Congrats! White is the best colour on a Figo. And your alloy wheels look awesome! The red dash was optional, right? Didn't you prefer the simple black dash?

Congrats Joe. Its a fantastic buy - the best diesel hatchback. Even i feel that the Figo looks really good - well proportioned and not over the top.
Enjoy the drive !

Congrats on the car!
She looks great! Once you get used to the gearing, you will love this car even more.
The turbo-lag is present, but since it's very little compared to its competitors, you get used to it quite fast and don't tend to notice it.
I only notice it when I started driving the car after switching from a high revving petrol.

Congratulations !! I saw your pictures & went "Woah!". I'd liked the green Figo in GTO's review but the white looks out of this world!
Love the bluetooth feature you mentioned, you've made me start to miss it in my car
Can't wait to TD the TDCi!
Do post some more pics of the interiors & driver's view
drive safe

So fresh, so untainted, so WHITE ! Great color and the car looks dashing !

Nice looking alloys too. But again this is subjective, the alloys could have been black

And generally how is Kairali Ford service and customer orientation aspect ?

Good choice Joe. Just want to check what is your height. I am 5.11'' and found driving Figo bit uncomfortable for tall people. This was the reason I dropped idea of going for Figo.

Wow, white is THE colour. I am falling in love with the car. Congrats Joe. By the way, which camera you own? You have taken best pictures of the car.

Joe, thank you for sharing the pictures. Loved the way you described the bluetooth pairing exercise, are you an engineer by profession?

You also mention that the bonnet is visible from the driver's seat, that should be a big confidence booster for new drivers.
