Question Palio Retro -> Palio Stile

I was at Concrode, Hyderabad last sunday for a free service camp for Palio. I saw Formula Red Palio Stile 1.6 Sports. It was looking very beautiful.

Somethings that I noticed -
1. New OVRMs (lower portion is black)
2. Double barell headlamps
3. Long side indicators (instead of oval ones that my car has)
4. New bumper
5. New tail lamps

Of course, most of these are cosmetic. But, I love the new exteriors and hate the interiors.

I was thinking about updating Palio 1.6 retro with the above. Is this possible?

Only change that I could confirm was OVRMs. They come as complete unit and should be straight port to Palio. I was thinking about others and any changes, that I missed.

Any suggestions?

Well i heard that one headlamp of the stile is enough to burn a huge hole in your pocket of 16 grand.

So, that would be 32k for a pair that lasts as long as your knickers ?? No wonder this car is a super flop.

From what I've heard, a pair of headlamp assemblies (left & right together) runs to 16K for the Palio Stile (1.1 & 1.6).

16k for a pair of headlamps. That's very expensive. Any idea about the prices for the cars in the same segment i.e Swift, Getz, Indica, U-VA

look for a projector housing - Skoda / Hyundai / BMW spares, and do a retrofit. throw in 2 pairs of D2S philips HID.

You will be much happier and shine in more style than the Stile

Thats doesnot matter Finneyp, even cars like Civic's headlamps dont cost that much & for 12k you get projector headlamps so a fool will buy 16k headlamps, Fiat is surely gone crazy
