Wow. You got a 1.6S in blazing blue. You are one of the luckiest autohead on the forum. Fill up the tank, go for a drive and treat us with more pictures. Wish you many more happy miles.
Thank you :)

A drive is on the list, soon after I complete a visit to SVC.

Hello VishnuVichu Bro,

Congrats on your New Buy The Ford Fiesta 1.6S, And i wish you a Long Long happy and safe miles ahead[:)] Wow actually the Aquarius Blue colour is an awesome one to pick with in Fiesta S i too Own a Fiesta Its a Fida Edition Copper Rust Colour, When we bought our Fiesta the Fiesta S was also available we had a big confusion in which one to go for but finally due to the dual tone black beige colour scheme and some cool features like the ORVM Mount turn indicators we opted for the Fida edition also the colour that we own was a very big reason on the deal breaker of Fiesta S. Any ways a Heartful Congrats and Wishes I've Subscribed to your thread kindly Update it as am very much interested and a fan of fiesta S Specifically the Aquarius Blue And the Paprika Red

Did a Quick Visit to the Service Center

Both the Indicator's Lock was broken. So changed both.

This was the Condition of the rear Braces [cry]

IMG_20161012_154315953.jpg

Luckily they had ready stock and hence changed ASAP !!

Both sides replaced and you can see that it's starting to rust. The Service Manager assured that he can do an Under body coating ASAP , since I didn't want to leave the car there. Since I had no other plans for the day, though of waiting there since the whole process is done.

Before, no leaks whatsoever :)

The Exhaust has to be done with another Coating separately, unfortunately they was not having it in stock. Will have to revisit them soon.

Attaching a picture of the bill for the rates of the changed items, FM antenna also was damaged. Replaced it.

Ohh Bro,

The Previous Owner Has maintained the car so badly Especially Under chassis!!! And thankfully the awesome thing that you've did is that you did under chassis coating, Now the Under chassis would be safe from rust[clap]. And Bro One Suggestion Better Give The car for full check up.

I am envious [evil]

First the City VTEC and now this Ford 1.6, you are lucky man. Grand father of a friend owns exactly the same car and I am envious to that old man too.

With the right set of tyres, this car is a hoot to drive on hilly roads and those noises which the engine makes, they make the pleasure multiply by a factor of 3.

Found that my Rear Right Door Beading has some marks on it. Like someone has teared it off or what.

IMG_20161112_114641918.jpg

Replaced it right away as I got a call from Harry Ford informing my Hub caps have reached [:D]

IMG_20161112_114701662.jpg

IMG_20161112_114744176.jpg

3 out of the 4 Hub caps were missing and it was really an eyesore. Thankfully got all 4 changed and it was pretty cheap too.

IMG_20161112_114922699.jpg

After this quick job, asked them to do a Full Quick Checkup for my car and they were always happy to help.

Attaching the Status Report.

IMG_20161125_141031693.jpg

Bill amount for the parts

IMG_20161125_141202032-01.jpeg

I must say that Harry Ford is light years ahead of Kairali Ford in each and every aspect. I have many friends with horror stories from Kairali Ford, Trivandrum. [frustration]

Wow man, I really love these Old gen Fiestas.
The design is classic and timeless. And the blue color makes it very special!
The alloys are looking very sweet and do gel well with the design of car.
Wish you many happy miles with the car.

BTW, what was the cost of underbody coating, And was it 3M?

Thank you so much bhvm [:D]

Yes it is 3M. A friend of mine is working there so I go for some special rates. Normally it should range around 3K with a 5 year warranty.[:)]

Few of the initially ordered parts came and another quick visit to the SVC

This boot bush was missing. Luckily no water entered in. Might have gone missing from my side. Replaced it.

Rear suspension bush condition [frustration]

New Bushes in

IMG_20161123_162733257.jpg

Rear right Shocker was found kaput when removed for replacing the bush. So changed that. Asked them to change both the rear ones, sadly only one was available of the S variant. Else have to get the normal Fiesta's rear shocker. Any way have asked them to order one for the left too .

Total Damage[lol]
