i like the palio's rear bumper, the front bimper is ok dont really like those round lamps....the scoop sucks big time (what ist ment for i dont know, if it an mpfi engine the air intake is further down on the left side) so scoop only for show i guess, unless he has the filter right above the tbody.

the palio looks overdone ...
the fog lamps are soo out of place the ad the hood scoops and the rear bumpers loook so not inline wid the car ... i'd rather let the palio be stock looking ..hook a subtle spoiler ,some xenons and 15 inch alloys ...

hey guys ny of you seen the red and white RIO OHC
that looks so awesome but i would take one without the vent on the hood
it looks like the one posted above - VTEC only has a better paint job

anyway
i like the palios skirts and alloys
the NHC looks awesome
and if the optra is what i think it is i wont mind putting my money on it

In this car its purely cosmetic.
Maybe a few "just so happened" kinda advantages like more place under the hood, more air and airflow under the hood, but then a couple of disadvantages like more drag, and more weight.
But either way all the advantages and disadvantages will be pretty tiny in my opinion.
