idling is not necessary. even manual states so. just keep revs to around 2k when you first start of in the day and let all the parts gradually warm up

But logic behind idling seems to be reasonable. Agree that manual says so. Atleast idling would be helpful in winters.

Hmmm Hmmm.

Check these pics guys am quite worried bout this.






They are rusted i wonder how many time would one find wheels in this condition. Is this condition serious? What should i do now? Is this rusted condition normal? if not then what should be done to avoid this?

Are those the disc brakes? How long was the car not used before that happened or did you have the car washed before that? Please let us know, rusting disc are not a good sign they will wear out the brake pads prematurely.

For the price see this thread:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...rmula-red.html (Fiat Palio Stile 1.6 Sport (Formula Red))

mileage would be between 10-12.
And it is palio stile 1.1 dude not 1.2.

All the new gen auto engines are preconditioned hence they don't require any rev limitaions till so n so kilometers as mentioned by others. Be happy and rev. Only thing don't rev when u have cold start.
