yesterday when i was near sterling theatre in mumbai i saw this beautiful palio S10.
the car looked awesome
i spoke to the cars owner - darshad parikh - who said he had self modified the car and had done some other modifications for other guys with other cars.
any way i liked the car so much i thought that i should post the cars pics which are pretty good for pics taken from my cell but unfortunately my FREIND deleted the nice sexy ones i had taken so all i got left was this not as good pics but anyway
here goes







some of the mods he had put on the car were -
iridium spark plugs with wires
k n n filter and head
195/65 r 15 tyres on sexy alloys
automech exaughst

and some beautiful side skirts and a front fender which looked awesome with its dark crease.

if i find some more pics i will definately post them

and if anyones intrested in contacting him his no. is 9819209222

cheers
lamborghini

hope this helps all palio owners who wanna modify their cars.

Hey Lambo,

I saw this car just yesterday evening at kemps corner while on the way to my grandparents place...ie your building!
Do tell him abt team-bhp.
I only saw the car in motion so i didnt get to look at the wheels properly, though i noticed they werent stock alloys.

is the car in the picture a sachin tendulkar limited edition?

if it is then the crease in the fender is part of the original design. correct me if i am wrong. also the exhaust is also OE as it comes with something that is completely differeent from the other 1.6 palio's. just adding a k&n filter would have made it a bit more louder and more refined at the higher revs. also, the filter would have given him an increase in performance anywhere between 5 to 10 % of total depending on installment.

so basically the only extra fitting that i see on this car apart from the filter is the mags and tyres which are nothing great. plus a stickering job which you can get done at any local shop. i agree that the car looks nice but i would not agree saying that he has done an excellent job...anybody can do this much.

lambo,

y so much color diff in the first 2 pics??

btw, the palio in the S10 avataar looks cool as it is..no need to add xtra ..

yeah like killjoy says the front bumper and skirts are stock...the exhaust tip looks like automech and he must have the K&N.

and yes a ok-ok decal job...
and yeah gto...ugly alloys i hate them too

my verdict...an ok looking palio...if he wud left it untouched it wud rock!!!!

cheers
