Default Can a Palio Stile be modified to look like the Palio 1.8R currently in Brazil?

Hi, saw the 1.8R online and its a stunner. Was just wondering if the present Stile can be modified from the outside to look like the 1.8R. Visually the size and shape of the grill, headlights, etc look the same.

Jasher,
Just looks like a neat paintjob + smoked headlamps + alloys to me.. Or is there something that's missing ?

There is no reason why it can't be made to look like that. Most customisation shops should be able to do it. Try Rio, MKraft etc. in Mumbai.

most of them are over done. when manufacturers do this (not japanese! no offense) there is a lot of subtlety to it

Just click on the link Fiat Palio 1.8R
and enjoy. and then Use the buttons on the bottom of the TV to navigate the rest of the site. Why in gods name is fiat not getting these cars here, is their marketing so weak that they cant sell such amazing machines. Just creating a fan base and selling like the Bullets and Harley davidson will fetch them more sales than what they currently manage, not to speak about the brand value they can create. Just tie up with Jagdish Khattar for the service part of the deal. All Set. Fiat Rules. Or am i too optimistic. All the best Fiat

did see this link earlier. they should get these versions to India.

Always observed that manufacturers who have come into India with no confidence have never done well here as they have failed at the A.S.S

BTW can we get these smoked headlights and the grill out here? Side mirrors can be custom painted to that pattern I guess
