This means on red light you can't just zip ahead but give it couple of second and it will roar like anything ready to take on even bigger cars. To this I would also add that I am able to take it from 0 - 100 within 17sec. whereas the Overdrive magazine gave it 20.1sec. I already got 3 challans for high speeding with this. Infact one time I just started from red light and within 10sec cops stopped me for speed and when I checked their speedgun for my speed it was whopping 84KMPH in less than 10sec. But the best part is its handling at high speed, its absolutely awesome. Few weeks ago I and friend went for trip (he was in Santro eRLX) and we were driving neck to neck and then few turn came and I zipped at the same speed but he had slow down for curves and after that he was not able to catch me for entire journey.

@humans , great review there, i had also mentioned the same thing when i test drove 1.1, it does not feel so much underpowered..

here is the link for my earlier post
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...tml#post412667 (The new Palio Stile 1.1 - Test driven !!)

@humans, use a K&N stock replacement filter, NGK iridium plug & synthetic oil, it will definetly make a difference, also use IFTEX systemG regularly, it helps...

Question Need some info on deciding on the version

On a slightly unrelated note to the above thread, I wanted some information.
I have decided on the Palio Stile 1.1L. My problem lies in figuring out whether to go for the SLE or SLX. The SLX is basically the SLE plus rear power windows, co-driver side ORVM, rear wiper and defogger. The price difference happens to be approximately 25k/-. Two questions that I have are -

1> How much would these accessories cost if you got them fitted outside? And is there a place where the price of these things can be found online anywhere?

2> What is the utility of the defogger in a moderate place like Blore? And is a co-driver side ORVM really necessary? I see many cars driving with this mirror folded and they rely mainly on their rear view mirrors.

Thanks in anticipation of your replies.

First of all forget the very idea of getting the assecories you mentioned to be installed post purchase...as they'll put on hold for month saying they dont have in stock etc.
Secondly its pretty cheap if you see the features they provide for 25k
the set of rear wiper with defrogger itself will cost you around 15k if im not wrong in my pricing.
The left or right ORVM costs 2000/- (body colored/painted)
Add 6,000/- for Rear Power windows.
Defrogger/Demister is actually helpful in moist conditions or foggy areas.
Since bangalore witness lots of rains so I guess its pretty useful there.
About using ORVM is actually depends on style of driving. If you are used to drive by looking at ORVM left / right the you need it else many keep it closed in bumper to bumper traffic there is every chance of it getting banged here there left right with ORVM open just my personal opion.

As per me 25k is not big amount for which they offer you these goddies plus few more like tachometer digital clock silver color ploish i guess on AC vents etc and wiring for 6 speakers and few more may be im missing.

Go for SLX and rest in peace else keep running dealer to dealer for asking spares.

dont even think of buying these from outside, 25k is marginal, go for SLX. a defogger is definitely required in Bangalore my dear friend. if you want to know what a car feels like without defogger contact me or read here.
