      Ford Figo Diesel - Titanium

      Hello fellow Gearheads,

      The Hunt for a car was started almost two years ago!!! As any typical middle class family, there were always a thing which took a higher priority than owning a Car. It kept postponing until May 1st, 2012 (My B'day ), when Dad said those golden words. "It is time! Let us buy a Car"
      After all the deliberation and planning, i finally booked a Ford Figo Diesel - Titanium at Metro Ford, Palace Road, Bangalore. Sea Grey was the color we chose. The buying experience and loan approval experience were handled amazingly well by the Staff there.

      We wanted to take the delivery of the car on May 25th early morning by 9:00 AM. The sales person was cordial enough to accommodate this. Hence, i did a small inspection of the car on May 24th. The car is manufactured on April 2012. The car displayed 35 kms on ODO. Finished some paper work and put the Delivery related paper work on hold till the next day morning.

      May 25th: Got up with a huge grin on my face. Reached the showroom by sharp 9:00 AM. My face had a consistent grin on my face which i could not just wipe it off! In few minutes time i would be a Owner of a four wheeler! WOW! The smile is still on my face as i am putting together this post. The feeling i currently have cannot be explained.. It can only be experienced! Tears of joy :')

      Got the Mud flaps, Floor Mats, Neck Pillows, Car Cover accessories at no extra cost Had insisted during the booking that the car to come with Good Year tyres and that was taken care of.

      Completed the formalities. Presented a small gift to the Sales Person and the guy who helped us with the loan process.

      The initial drive was excellent.

      We are driving down to Tirumala this week. Will share the drive experience once i am back!

      All in all. I am very happy with the choice made. I thank one and all who helped me make this choice. Ford Figo is THE VFM car one can buy!

      And yeah.. I am yet to name the car! Will be revealed soon!

      Congratulations autojunkie! Wishing you many happy miles.
      Sea Grey is a good choice. Understated yet elegant.
      Hope to see you in the ICE Section too!
