Payam, IMO you could do a lot of better to your car than a Koni suspension setup. I dont have much details about Koni's but I have heard that they are very stiff. The stock suspension of the Palio comes from Opac which is a Brazilian company. Fiat tried their luck to localize them but none of the manufacturers could match the specs. A friend who recently went to Brazil got some nice Gas filled struts for the fronts of his GTX. They are from Opac too. I drove his car and fell in love with the suspension setup compared to my stock.
Usually people prefer to do the following to their car to make it run better:
1) Iridium plugs and wires.
2) K&N Free Flow filter.
3) Better rubber.
Its difficult to recommend since we do not know what you currently have on your car. I would advice against the Koni's since for the price you would be able to do a lot more.

its understood that your uncle is going to gift you with konis but is it possible for you to ask him to get something else.why im saying this is because the palio 1.2's suspension is very good and i dont think the konis will make much of a difference.try asking for something else.and i dont think you will find koni's in uk for the palio so its better that you ask for something else.and from the link you have mentioned ,there is none for the palio and i dont think it can be fitted .and not to forget these are lowering kits,not advisable in india.for 400 pounds you can get a lot of better things.

One of my managers who owns a Palio 1.2 and he faced some tire problems which were solved by experts here and he is happy with the tires.
There is another problem and that with his suspension.
He claims they are stiff and make a noise even on the smallest speed braker.
He has shown the service guys. They did what they could in a paid service, but
the noise is recurring after a week or so.
His car is pretty old now, I suspect over 4 years.
What can be done? Please suggest.
Also the appraisal period is around the corner
