Arrow Got FIGOttitude?

I present a 'Storyboard Presentation' on the Ford FIGO.

My special thanks to T-BHP for the dedicatedly composed initial review by GTO on the FIGO, and those sales personnel at Ford Dealers esp. Ganges Ford, Victoria Ford and Mody Ford who allowed me to take a vigorous test drive of the vehicle for consideration/comparison. (8 times test driven).

Arrow Storyboard Contd:

The strategy was quick delivery and I was ready to pick any color any variant (as lowest variant as possible). So it was an off-the-shelf purchase just as my earlier SUV was acquired (now happily & satisfactorily sold).

It feels great to be a part of the ever-growing FIGO Fraternity and nice to see so many owners already around on T-BHP.

Keep it up FORD India.

A wonderful ownership experience. Wonderful Photography! ***** from me. I guess Figo would be proud to have a owner like you.

Btw, what tyres and alloys have you fitted aftermarket?

That is easily one of the best looking Figo's on this forum!
Congrats on the purchase!
A few of questions if you don't mind:
Given the amount you travel, wouldn't a Titanium with ABS and Airbags be a better bet?
The Innova is sold?
Can you please post some details of the accessories. Has the tyre change voided the warranty?
Why was the radiator fan changed?
When is the next travelogue coming up?

Congrats on the new ride. Some great pics posted too. Hope to read and see more updates on this thread from your end soon.

Congrats on Figottitude. Nice combo of alloys for the red colored car.

IMO the tyre looks one size too many.

Great F(ig)oto Report. Car looks fine. I think you would hv gone for Titanium. Happy & Safe Motoring.

<<GTO's review on TBHP was the key influencer of this purchase>>
1000% True.

Your answers to lamborghini's questions would be of more help

Congrats dude!!! I love the tyres profile, tread pattern, alloys. Even being base model with such high profile tyres it does not looks like it is a LXI . Now, please share the price details of tyre and alloys and what was buy back price for old tyres may be. May be you can mark this on pictures as well.
