Thanks a lot. Regarding extracting freebies credit goes to my wifey. Some how womens always beat mens when compared to negotiation(atleast true in my case). Thanks for sharing the thread. Pics are uploaded without bothering you [:)].

Regards,
Aks

Congrats Aks_hyd
Thanks Nofate & Cooldhaya.

400 KM Update:

My car is serving me pretty well. I am in love with this machine. Features i like most : Handling , space , ride comfort , driving pleasure , chilling AC, road presence.

However i find gear 1 & gear 2 without juice. I am a newbie driver but in 1 & 2gear i really find my machine being pulled by donkey(no offense meant) rather than horses.

Last weekend went to get it loaded with seat covers. Also did went to RTO to get my vehicle registered on my own( yes you read it correct....on my own[clap]). The dealer was quoting the registration expense as 2500 where as the RTO charges are 625 INR only. Will explain the whole process and experince in a different post.

Will be going to re-fuel the vehicle in this weekend so will be able to update the FE part later.

Regards,
Aks

The wait is over ultimately. Congratulations for the staggering white horse, Aks. Do post the after accessories installation pictures and what other add-ons are you considering to go for?

This is going to be an interesting read. Looking forward to the next post.

Drive Safe,

congratulations on your new buy, looks smashing in white.
Regarding your registeration process well thats exactly what i have been doing since last 12 years since my M800 days for every two wheelers i had and for myindica as well.
Enjoy your ride and keep updating your thread.
Even i was able to get my choice no. for mere half the price or even lesser in few cases compared to what dealer rto agent was asking.Also you save a bit for registeration charges as well.

After first service you will observe slight increase in pick-up[clap], but don't expect too much [;)]

Thanks 350Z & AMG

Yeah seems like that. Wait & Watch.

Few days back went to stock yard for freebies: Teflon second coating , Sunfilm for Wind Sheilds(except front) and USB Cord installation. It took almost 7 hours to complete the above. Need to go to showroom to collect Car Body Cover as promised. Still waiting for 3rd Year Extended Warranty document.

My Figo was thristy by now so went to refuel it.

Tankfull Method:

Fuel Station: IBP
Fuel Type : Normal Petrol
Odometer Reading : 485
Last Odometer Reading : 61
Fuel Quantity for tankfull: 35.36
Mileage = (485-61)/35.36 = 11.99 km/lt
Driving Conditions: City Traffic but not B2B, 50% AC

Not a bad FE for a Figo (Petrol ) and a Newbie like me!!!!!![clap]

OT: In stockyard saw two New Fiesta Sedan.They were gleaming in BLUE. Gosh..isin't is beautiful ? I loved it. If priced correctly then it will be a tough competitor for many sedans of its category.
