I have clicked these photos of the interior of the glove box. You can see that all the fuse etc are visible. Also beneath the steering wheel their is no steering wheel adjustment lever. I would request figo owners to please tell me whether they can see all these fuse etc when they open the glove box??? My variant is ZXI.

Yes the fuses are visible when you open the glove box. The steering wheel plastic shroud is taken form the Fiesta which has steering height adjust. The Figo doesn't have it so you see a hole.

ps: Mine is a Titanium.

Hi HappyRoadie, congrats on your new buy.

Any plans to upgrade the tyres, how much is the car now costing on road. Are you planning to go on any long rides now?

BTW, the seat covers look great, though I actually felt Figo comes with a good seat not requiring covers.

Yes Agreed. Lot of Figos are on road now a days in areas around Coimbatore, Erode and Tirupur districts. In chennai lot are seen now a days.
Simple reason - Competitive pricing with overall good features. No major complaints from owners (me being the one of the customers having issues with my figo - all detail in my thread)

The delivery delay in Swift & Polo is another reason for Figo sales.

Congrats Happyroadie - Car looks good in squeeze. If you maintain the car regularly squeeze looks good. Happy and safe motoring.
No steering tilt option in Figo so no lever. Figo review thread (around 233 pages) has lot of knowledge sharing can throw more details about the car

Congrats on the car dude! I have a question about the sunfilm, can you provide the specs? Is it allowed to have sunfilm of this visibility (or lack of)?

Its been a very long time since I updated this thread. I have removed the sunfilm because the visibility had become very poor during night. My car has completed its 1st servicing. I have also got the connection for usb. As usual no problems in car and its going smooth.

I dont have much idea about the sunfilms. I had installed sunfilm that was very dark. Persons inside my figo were nearly not visible to people outside. It was so dark. Due to this it was difficult driving in night. I have removed solar film from sides as well as from back. I am planning to install a less dark solar film.

^^ you can always ask for the visibility the sun films you apply. 30% is usually for the sides and back. 70% visibility is for the front.

Yes we should ask for VLT of films. To best of my knowledge the legal limits are 70% for Front and Rear. 50% for side windows. I my opinion we should install 70% on side windows too if ORVM are extensively used. Its better to install cheap films with 70% VLT on sides and Good quality > 90% IR rejection films on Front Windshield, Since Front windshield contributes more than Side windows to heat accumulation in Car.

If rear windshield has defogger installed then rear sun films are not advised in many posts which I have read. The reason is while removing the worn films chances of damaging defogger lines are more. Some owner have mentioned occurrence of this problem due to bad workmanship while removing sunfilms. So please be aware of these matters while installing sunfilms.

^^ its better to not have the films rather than compromising with cheap one's. Again in the end its a personal choice. So no offense *peace*

Atleast for me in mumbai, it gets really hot and humid, so i personally make sure i get the best for heat reductions which also helps in keeping the cabin temp cool enough.

As for the rear, well i have got the films installed by Vkool guys and have also warned then that if the defrogger are damaged they would have to bear the cost. Surprizingly they agreed !

@dar3devIl It is good on their part that they have agreed. Figo pickup is great.

Well I would like to know more about this school of thought. Can you please elaborate it ? It will help me getting things done right at first time itself.

I am also planning VKool for front windshield and plan not to do at Rear windshield since Figo ZXI has rear defogger. But if they agree as with you, how effective will it be to have Sunfilms at Rear Windshield ?

I will be uploading better pictures of my Figo in coming days because the pictures that I had uploaded earlier were of very poor quality. I have paired my phone with the bluetooth of the audio system. It works wonderfully. I have had no problem using it. It is really a very convenient feature.



Regards
