Default Pictures of my S10

Friends, here are some snaps of my S10. I am not camera savvy, so pardon me if the pictures are not up to the mark.

Thats one hot hatch. So as per details provided by roms, this looks like an ABS, airbag version. Thats a steal!! but there are 6 spokes though they are of the same design as shown in the pic by Roms.
enjoy. Get some dashboard/plastic spray polish (turtle wax) and get the black shine on the bonnet air vents. will make car look new...a bit of tyre wax etc etc..

Nice pictures sultan. The car looks great and the interiors clean as well. Have a good time with her.

By the way is that your Gypsy in the background?

No. This is NOT the ABS/Airbag version. Also the wheels are different than the ones from the pics posted by Roms.

Infact, after driving just 300Kms in the S10 i wonder why did they not provide ABS atleast. the car has insane amount of power and you feel the absence of ABS while braking at high speeds..

The pics look great Sultan! Considering the kind of traffic we have in Bangalore, the lack of blemishes on the bumpers show a well cared for car!
Congrats on your new ride!
What did you finally pay for this?

@khan... Brilliantly kept car there. Here is a car which was launched 5-6 years back and even to this day looks absolutely hot and sexy and can still give any hatch a run for its money.
God help me find a good S10.... its a collectors car now.

Try New Cars, Used Cars, Buy Cars, Sell Cars, New Car Prices, Used Car Prices - CarWale.com India or see the Palio Users Group. You can find some S10's there..

one of my friends got a pristine OHC VTec (his words, his car ) for 3.6L. He just didn't wanna look anywhere else. And yes, about the same vintage too. Dilli is cheaper man!

K_Sultan, As an enthusiast who bought a Palio 1.6, you must get an after-market exhaust fitted. Somehow, free-flows sound awesome on Fiats (Palios and Padminis alike).

Yes GTO... an after-market exhaust is top of my to-do list for my S10. I want to experience the stock S10 for few months and then go for the mods.

Initially, I had concerns of FE going down because of FFE but i think a good FFE should not reduce FE to a great extent.

BTW, I am getting reasonably good FE in my S10 ~9 KM/L in bangalore traffic

Cheers,
Shahnawaz

Awesome Pics!!

Looks like the car is brand new if you look at the interiors... Really well maintained car and looks smashing in that yellow color. Enjoy your ride.. A 1.6 giving 9kmpl in Bangalore traffic is not bad at all... Wonderful ride you got there

Drive Safe n have fun!!
