I am gonna sue you for plagiarism.

Naah, just kidding. How god hatches same plot at different places and with different people. You may want to check out my write up on me buying a car here to know why.

And congratulations, I am sure you are enjoying the car. Do keep us informed on the ownership experience.

Hey Butters, it was my first sedan so I wanted it to have all the luxuries - Leather seat covers, rear head rests etc. and this was readily available in the color I wanted so went for it.

What a twist in a tale of your buying experience, enjoyed reading it!
Thanks Ashish, I too am quite excited with the car and desperately waiting for first service, I like it so much that I just ask my wife to sit and we just go for drives every weekend . Only worry I have is FE, if it gives 11-11.5 I will be very very happy

Congrats carfanatic on the purchase.

That was one twisting tale of purchase decision, but I guess you got what you wanted at the end.

Have many miles of happiness with the Fiesta!

Congratulations Carfanatic! Those silver color grill looks gorgeous.
Your car buying incident is really a twisted tale but ultimately its good you went ahead with your wish.

Congrats carfanatic!

Though of course, you have an awesome car in your hands, this is a good story of how VW lost a customer due to their insane waiting periods :P

Thanks AvonA7, I too like the grill color, IMO it enhances the front look quite a bit, just itching for run-in kms to get over

Hey Quadmaniac, Yes I am enjoying the Biesta and yes I admit if the waiting period wasn't that long I might have been in a Polo now but I think I was destined to own a Fiesta. The drive is amazing, in nice Bangalore weather this Sunday when roads were clear it felt like the car was effortlessly cruising and so silent

Carfanatic man, your writeup was too awesome. Long back I had congratulated you on booking a Polo, now I will have to congratulate you on buying a Fiesta. Welcome to the Fiesta club. The red colour looks good on the beast, is it still the Paprika red?

What a dramatic twists and turns, the way the mind games play, a sureshot receipe for a mega hit movie.

All I would say, enjoy the feel, the drive, the brilliance and lots more in Fiesta. Believe me everytime I sit in my Fiesta, I take a few moments to adore it and later the engine responds back by its sheer power and handling for all the adulation and adoration it receives.

I am loving it. Go Fida.

Thanks Ghodlur, hope your Fiesta is also treating you as well as you treat her . It is the Parika red and at a 1.25 lakh premium to Polo I am definitely not complaining. I too am trying to keep her in pristine condition

nkrishnap, Thanks mate, I looked at the car in flesh with beige interiors and instantly decided it over Sea Grey

@Carfanatic,

Any chance of upsizing or tyre replacements on the cards. I swapped the stock tyres with the Michelin XM1+ from the dealer directly. The tyre grip is too good and have seen them in action during the present monsoons.
The stock tyres are not that great.

The Fiesta is worth paying a premium over the Polo, you will realize that you have actually made a good choice by opting for the Fiesta. Dont let the FE bother you too much, control the beast and you can control the FE.

By any chance have you used System G during the tank full, suggest you to use one on trial basis.

Ghodlur,

No plans to change stocks yet as haven't felt the need so far and I am very happy for choosing Fiesta. I haven't used system G yet, plan to get it this weekend and use it. Tell me how are you maintaining the interiors, using jopatsu and alloys?

@carfanatic

the car looks superb! Congratulations.
About keeping the car clean, go through the following thread:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/owning...esthetics.html

Also, IIRC Jopatsu is used to wipe of the dust from the exteriors, so that you don't have to wash it everyday.

Edit:
Also, it is very important to run in your car. Many manufacturers may not mention it, but it is always beneficial to do so. However, 3000-5000kms is longer than usual. What does it say in the owners manual?
