Whaaaaaaaaat!! This is a bug. This works perfectly in my zen or the Lancer. Need to check with other Palio users.

My Fiat Linea too has this feature, which is explained in the owner's handbook and I am aware of it. That's why, I did not consider it as a hidden feature.

How to Lock/Unlock in silent mode without the Beep.

Generic feature in AutoCop remote locking (not sure if others support it)
Usually u have 3 buttons, Unlock , Middle * Button, Lock

In case you want to Lock/Unlock in silent mode without the Beeep then
Press Middle button - Release - Immediately Press Lock/Unlock.

It will Lock or Unlock in silent mode.

In my i10, I found that when ever you use the power windows the air flow from A/C blowers reduce, looks like the power windows consumes too much of power.

Where is this? I need to check!!!
Yes, you are right. The second bottle holder is the part of the same cover over where the gear lever is. Just look behind the coin holder and try flipping over that last part and it will open and make way for another bottle that can be accessed by the rear passengers.

I knew that a small touch on the indicator in my Ford makes the indicator three times, which is perfect for lane changes. But, just found out that touching it a second time makes it stop blinking. So, two small taps if I ever want to make the indicator blink just once.

I had some fluids (unspoken word here) last night, that had the funny effect and I have used a wrong word.

It was not submerged. It went into 4-5 feet water. There was this causeway in derabassi and my brother under-estimated the level of water.

Turbo blown, Injectors need replacement, ignition burnt, immobilizer not working, carpet needs to be replaced, air filter and other consumables would be replaced, 2 JBL amps (lying under the seat) blown.
A tractor tried to pull out the car and pulled and broke the bumper.
He didnt use the towing hook.

Estimate given 1.65L. Luckliy, Insurace has Flood coverage.
