e-biz, congrats ! When did you book ? I know many BHPians will be having a laugh at this question as I ask this to every new Figo owner on this forum. When they says they booked after me, I have that feeling of - Oh my God, why not for me !!! Still, feel happy to see one more Figo owner on T-BHP and I hope to join the group soon. Enjoy your ride and wish many many safe miles !

Dear All...Thanks for all your wishes...Am on vacation and hence unable to take any picture of my car..am back to India on 6th...Will post pictures then.

Note: The mat set / mud guard offered by Ford as part of the essential pack costs Rs.2000/-. Boot mat (rubber) and mud flaps are good but the other mats (in the front & back floor) are fabric (not rubber) and catches dirt easily. Mat set is optional. Perhaps others can take a cue from it...

Thank you for your suggestion ElantraGT

20 days is worth the wait hiren959. Ebony dash is so much classier than the coral red dash in my opinion

Thanks Mustang. Will PM you if i require any support

What about the rear seat leg room? How would you rate them?

Congratulations on your new car. Even I have made up my mind to go for the Figo. I will soon be a Figo customer as well.

You don't have as much space as in the Indica Vista, but definitely better than swift / Ritz. Due to the design of the front seats, you can stretch your legs under the front seats

Chennai Ford. Dealer experience was good. Though the sales guy did not have much clue about the product except reading from the brochure, they took good care of us - attentive & on time but not knowledgeable

The carpet mats (non-rubber), if ford branded, are of good quality and tough. I prefer these over the rubber one's since it gives a plush feeling. Also, it is very easy to vacuum/water wash it. They also tend to be long lasting (used for 6.5 yrs in my Ikon and looked as good as new).

During rains, I do put the rubber one's.

You can always get the paint protection and other treatments done outside anytime you want, and for less. But please be aware that for a new car, the pricing will be lesser than a 3-6 month old car. If you are interested in 3M, suggest drop in at Sri Balaji Agencies, near SIET college. They are the authorised distributors for 3M.

The Ford branded carpet mat for Figo is really "Figo". Saw a pic of them on Captain Slow's ownership report. I am going get those even though I have already bought after-market ones. I can always use them in the rainy season as you mentioned.
