Now that as a matter of fact depends on every individuals likes n dislikes.
Dont really think its necessary that looks and performance should go together.

Default hey all

i feel all those who feel rio's kits are not that good, first they shud have a real close look to it

the finishing quality and the paint job is extra ordinary

and for those who feel the kit is heavy, just take a drive with a rio kit car, then u wil change ur iopinion
i admit that it does add some weight but these are made keeping in mind the ergonomics of the car, i.e the air intakes and wind pressure and all

and the bonnet scoop, there is no one else who gives a scoop in his design

that scoop makes it standout of the crowd

the normal air vents are of no use unless u have those gadgets under the hood. (ones like the evo)

and just to tell u all, that red getz is repainted, its not the normal red.

when i went to RIO this time he was working on a innova and i tell u the front just looked like a landcruiser prado. if he can transform a ugly looking car in a masterpiece then he is a pro

and the reason many people dont like his car coz they dont have any stickering or decals on them, thts because RIO doesnt let them be.
he removes my stickers whenevr i send my car for touchups or polisshing

thats rio

I saw A white Getz by RIO with same alloys and kit as the red one.
Also it is parked where I used to see the red one.
I think the owner has repainted it.Since I have never seen both cars at the same time
Anybody have any clues???

Also I saw those same alloys on a Black Corolla..

All this was seen in Bandra!!!

Saw this outside Otter Club. Looked real good.Sorry for the quality but the mini's cam doesnt work well at night. The front bumper looked real neat but I couldnt take a pic of it cos there wasnt enough light

Hey guys have seen almost all of these rio modded cars here in mumbai as im in bandra all the time have not seen the workshop till now anyway i have seen a similar looking red palio the allows are painted red and i think there are more than one red coloured palios done by rio cos another one i saw had ferrari stickers on it!As of the rio designs they are pretty original and look decent seen alot of modded toyotas done by rio look sweet only thing is that rios hood designs are a bit too radical!
