Great choice for a car buddy! But i also doubt that the formula red color is avaliable in the palio D. isn't it only avaliable in the sport model or is it that the sport model is also avaliable on the diesel? Haven't fiat included alloys on the top end versions when they launched the NV series? these alloys were earlier seen on the GTX. Great car though - I took a test drive of the diesel when i was buying my palio and boy was i impressed!
all the best and happy shopping!

p.s. haggle hard for freebies and discounts. Fiat dealers are quite stingy when it comes to giving discounts so be tough with them.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions. Well, I would like to have a look at Getz and I doubt if they have a CRDI Getz it's going to cost closer to Palio D.

Also I am very fond of European cars...

I have a problem with my car parking at work. I don't have a sheltered paring at my work place. It cost Rs.2000/month to have a sheltered parking. My open parking costs Rs.400.

If I am going for a red or a black palio, the sun god is surely going to show all his powers on my car paint.

Apart from covering it all the time, is there any other way i can protect the car from sun?

Get a body cover. These cost less than a 1000 bucks and work like a charm for me.

1. > Always Park your car in the shade.
2.> Always cover your car when you are leaving it somewhere for a long time [whether in the shade or sun].
3.> Wash your car with water everyday. With car-shampoo [not detergent] once a week. Pressure wash it once in 2 months during the rains.
4.> Never wipe your car with a dry cloth. Always use a moist cloth.
5.> Wax it every month.
6.> Do not park your car at places where children play [whether they play Cricket or marbles].
6.> If you are parking in the sun, always use a sun-blind and keep the glass 1/2 inch open.
7.> Get a good dashboard cover. Prevents it from heating and fading.

Now I know atleast one person who follows this comprehensive routine very diligently. Oh wait..its you! V12, you ought to give all of us lessons on how to keep our steeds looking like new!
