Itís time to take car home. We reached showroom by 4PM in the evening. There were so many fiestas parked in front. My eyes keyed particularly for Morello colored one.
There were 3 of such parked. Out of those, one was diesel.
At last I saw my dream car. Yeah!!! My name was written in a cardboard and placed on carís dashboard. Imagine the mind set and excitation I might have had at that time. Then we went inside the showroom to get the papers. Checked everything thing and kept it inside a file. They gave me mango juice. Yuck!!! It tasted quiet bad u know.
Itís time to have a check. A thorough inspection we carried over. There came some hassles. Here it goes!!!
Me: Sir!!!! (Called the sales person politely)
Dealer: Yeah Saar, please tell me.
Me: ZXI comes with chrome finished head lamps right???
Dealer: Yeah Saar, you are right.
Me: EXI comes with normal finished head lamps right??
Dealer: Yeah Saar.
Me: Look at mine!!! On side the head lights are chrome finished and the other side is having the normal finished ones!!! (Imagine what a mistake it is!!!)
A huge car manufacturer had done a lousy mistake with headlamps. EXI variant headlamp in one side and ZXI variant on the other end. Now I was in a terrible state. I thought what else are remaining like this???? After everybody in the showroom checked headlight collapse, all showed same reaction. What else it could be? Speechless!!!
A chief called the GM of MPL ford immediately. Thank god!!! He was near the showroom. He managed to come there in 20 Min. He saw the headlights and came to me.
GM: Sir!!! We are really very sorry.
Me: You pals ran out of stock when fixing lights or what??? How come mismatch in headlights?
GM: Even I donít know how this happened. We generally do a QA (Quality assurance) and there is where we check all this. Some how if missed all the checks and came.
Me: What shall I do now? Can you suggest me some solution.
GM: You donít worry sir!!! Please check it again and take the car now. Iíll send you new lights for replacement day after tomorrow as tomorrow is Diwali( Itís holiday).
Me: Where do I have to get it replaced?
GM: You need not worry about it sir. Iíll send guy to your home. Heíll come there and fix it up.
We did all the checks and nothing looked fishy after that. Let the showroom and headed directly to temple. Still I had a small thought in a corner of my mind about this headlight.
In excitement, I forgot to take the camera. Got a mobile cam and took some snaps from it. Please adjust the image quality. Iíll post awesome snaps tomorrow as I promised.
