He said that they will be shipping almost 4k ES in 3 days. I laughed at him saying for one month they haven't done anything how come they will do it in 3 days. For which he said the invoices are raised for those cars and they have to ship them and make money. He also added that this kind of huge shipping is not something new for Ford. They have done in past and they do the same. They are still confident that they will delivery all 32K by End of this year. 90% by Nov End. Looks like a plan and lets hope they do.
There is a saying in Tamil " Azhugira Pillaiyukku thaaan Paal" Meaning The baby that cries only gets the milk. So we will only be taken for granted if we don't bug the SA at least on weekly basis
Our all original live station from Ford factory is again in action.Very-informative man.In-fact, your words like "4K in 3days" is like sweet music to my ears.It really gives me patience to drag along.
You are bang on right about continuous pestring of our SA's.If one do not pratice this,the SA (ideally,he should not) will assume that the person is in no hurry to get the vehicle and might pass on the allocation to someone eager to jump the line (Many are there).

Motorbeam has just broken the news that Maruti's Compact Suv shown as a concept in Auto Expo 2012 is ready for ARAI approval.The article aslo mentions that the car will be powered by the 1.4 petrol and 1.3 diesel doing duty on the Ertiga.The car will not be a sub 4m vehicle so it will not get any excise benefits,but due to part sharing with the swift,dzire and the ertiga expect a competitive price.The article also mentions that the car will launch in september with delivery commencing from October.
Now that's a true Ecosport challanger,expect deliveries of the Ecosport to increase substantially.
As Raja bhai said, it will just be showcased at the Frankfurt show.Actual realisation on Indian soil will not happen this year, as per me.

Swift with bigger wheels side opening rear door. Spare wheel on roof. And some dirty colour. You get swift Ecoster.
Now Maruthi Engineers will be working on., how to make the concept car look ugly.
PS. Who will buy that Sea Green color Swift Desire . Seriously! No offense.
I do agree that Maruti folks are good at spoiling the designs (we all see ample examples daily).
Again, no hard feelings!!

Pretty much in line with what I think.
p.s : The desperation becomes even more pronounced, with that spare wheel mounted on the tail-gate.

Try the following things, Involve your wife also in this excitement.
Try not to visit all these websites frequently! The more you know! The more is the problem.
More than 87% are waiting for 2 months are more!
Keep your wife happy! It will be a disaster if she is not happy on car delivery date!
True friend. Although, I have still not joined the couple-community, but I do understand your situation. (Humans observe and learn

But can't help. Luckily I am making most of the waiting period. Honing my wifey's driving skills on old alto ! before I sell it.
Wow, that is a good way of utilising whatever is left in your vehicle.It also reduces the risk of your new ride getting spoiled by wifey,if ever she tries a hand at it.
