They did not give me any option and I am not aware of that.

I appreciate your comments

satya:
I am not planning for any mods in the near future. First, I have to understand my car and then decide what mods are going to help it. Will sure post my mods here when i get them done.

**Gnnnnnnnhhhhh!**

(That's me gritting my teeth to avoid letting out uncontrollable hoops of awe, envy and whathaveyou at the sight of your new acquisition.)

Mucho congratulations, Satish. Don't mind if I do keep peppering you with questions since my own acquisition of a Palio seems tantalisingly around the corner. Would like to pick your brain on how to haggle and get the mostest...

Do keep the post-ownership stuff coming!

And here's a shout-out from another roots-in-Rajahmundry guy.

The new Brazilian Palio looks great.
New Fiat Palio
The car looks more angular than the current Palio especially in the rear. The head lights look more practical. The grill on the bumper looks awsome. But the most noted change is Interiors. It is a typical european.
I am unsure how soon we will get this car in India. With the current sales figures in India, I don't think Fiat will replace their body stamping dies. The new Interiors may never come to India. We can expect this car to come in late 2005 if the sales figures of the current car are promising.
