Yea, a well tuned Fiat is awesome to ride (rather than to look at). I have quite a history with modified fiats, its brilliant to learn drifting in one, actually. Well cant say drift, its more of a controlled tail slide (that doesnt last long, but surely raises the tiny hair on ur body! )

Anyway I dont mean to steal the show of this thread, but I hate to start a completely new thread, mainly coz its just a thought at the moment.
I have a Palio Diesel 1.9 *which is in mumbai, and me being out of town for work most of the time* its more of a spare car at the moment. Could any one of you give me some details / suggestions on tuning it?
Not full tuning, but just may be a turbo, a power/performance chip (if available for a palio d. that is) !
How much would it set me back (buying/fitting)? Would you recommend a suspension / tyre change. It has some shitty company 14" alloys but are a much firmer ride than the original alloys that came with it.
And I guess the standard Fiat Palio Suspension is pretty stong and stiff, but I may be wrong.
I have no idea of the market scenario at the moment, as I said the thought just came to my mind, and my only intention of tuning the car is to blow away those annoying hatches (zen/santro and its likes) in the city and on highway!
I'd really appreciate some help and suggestion. On do you think a turbo and a power chip is a good idea on a Palio D. ?

Fiat has exactly the product for this situation - The Palio 1.6 GTX. Rumours are that it is yet being produced on order, and the last I checked...prices were hovering around 4.5 lacs on the road in Bombay.

Sell the 1.9D and add the money that you were going to mod it up with. Get a 1.6 GTX for 4.5 or better yet...go for a pre-"worshipped" example at 3 lacs. You can never go wrong with a 100 Italian horses in a hatch!

Loads more modding options this way too...In fact I am tempted to buy one myself now after looking at market prices.

there is no way that ur polio oops palio will ever blo w away a zen .
ask any zen or santro who had the misfortune of buying a palio ,aas top what is more annoying.

dont dare u call a zen annoying.
and the only vehicle that u can blow away will be truck
the palio diesel may be good car ,but not better than a zen in terms of performance
