You're right on, Zak . Even adding skirts is a bit extreme for the kind of guy I am. And I will go for skirts that look like the S10 OE ones only. I like the way the S10 looks hunkered down, because of the skirts. And like you said, that will be the limit of my exterior mods. Money spent on ICE is always more VFM. Unless of course the kind of skirts you're spending the money on have a hot babe inside

@carfreak, yessssss! By all means, ask them. TVS guys don't have it in stock. On order only, and that too they say we'll need to keep our fingers crossed after ordering.

Yow! That s10 spoiler (original) is like 10K with painting. A friend of mine got one for his black Palio a couple of years back. Do you really want to spend 10K on a spoiler?

I'd want really good finish for the skirts too :-)

Man! Changing alloys again?

Hey, this thread is turning out to be something now. A few uncontrollably mad Palio owners, engine Mods, exterior Mods, ICE, Sachin Tendulkar's skirts, FAT Skirtings, Alloys again (Please, not again GOD! Please!), Head jobs, Decision making like Bush's policy of pulling out from Iraq........
Guys, what's going on?

There're many modders around who can make not only skirts, even a Madonna out of fibre. Kitup (their quality matches OE & maybe better) has it's people doing this locally and at Coimby, PaulRaj & co who mods cars for Madaparambil etc.., Kurian from Kottayam (he's got a lot of hidden talent) and then some local fibre fabricators born with fibre in their hands. They'll be able to design and make any type of kits you all want.
But before you jumping in, think twice. Getting a kit made locally may not satisfy many (Carfreak, R U ears?) unless finished like a rolls' seat. That is not very easily attainable. Then, fibre can easily break, crack and get scratched (some fibre kits are stronger than metal too, but that is very rare). "The new look didn't last long" etc.. Problems caused by a fibre body kit is many.

Yes, I'm being too pessimistic here! Damn!!
But I am a Q car guy, right? Yes, I voted so in the poll somewhere.
So, you guys know what to do.

Whatever happens, I am going to be in Malaysia when Carfreak goes for his (soon, according to him) next alloy change. Check the Team-Bhp meet section.

Thumbs up Namaskaaram!!

Hey guyz! Did i miss something??
I was out of team-bhp for some days and i can see that quite a lot have happened.
First of all congatulations on your new buy. 1.6 is simply great and with todays rates, its the easiest to lay your hands on if all you need is high performance. But as my granpa said "With great powers comes great responsibilities". Welcome to the world of FIAT. My advice to you, get a good contact person at the nearest FIAT dealer. You'll never know .

I've done up the induction and freeflows on my S10. Let me know in case you have any queries on this. Also try to get a nice set of 15 inchers. 100 pcd with the alloy nuts will fit in fine for a palio. I'll put up some more pictures on my performance mods and ICE shortly in my garage.

HOW????
palio has a pcd of 98.arent you facing any problems by fitting 100pcd.whats the relevance of the alloy nuts in the above sentence.is it because of the alloy nuts that the 100pcd rims have fit the car

This was surprising for me too.. well here is the whole story..

I bought the 100 pcd hijoin mags and thought of getting it altered to the hub or vise versa. The hub has actually an inner rim/disc where the nuts really dig into. So i got this disc removed and went to a laithe with the mag. The guy there told that this can never be altered since its a perfect fit . Well, he was correct, he fitted the disc onto the wheel and showed it to me. He told me that the alloy bolts were important because of the taper it has on the edge where it contacts the wheels. The taper makes sure that the wheel is aligned properly on the disc when the the bolts are tightened.
