Thanks santhosh. I avoided up-sizing primarily for keeping my warranty and secondly, I think OE size should be the best balance between ride and handling.

Ford is generally very accommodating about these things. I asked them about the free-flow exhaust and he said go right ahead. We will take care of the warranty and all that. He was a senior guy.

And about that uncovered metal behind the pedals, it is the same in my Fiesta. So that's cool.

Not sure about security provided but they certainly look cool, especially "IND" written.

Thanks Vroom. Figo's "Fun to drive" factor would be ...
Punchy engine. (at least for diesel)
Maneuverability which includes good steering response, minimum body roll.
Good, a bit stiff, suspension (to zoom over patchy roads.)
Comfortable seating position.
And to sum up if you are left with the feeling to drive more despite being fatigued, which happened today. :-)

I am getting FE of about 15.5 kmpl on highway, with 70% AC. Isn't it a bit low, maybe not since I drove mostly between 100-120kmph reaching 140kmph once. Please advise.
