Thanks very much for your kind suggestion. But my Palio D still be used as a city commuter. IMO, this NA engine is a breeze to drive in the city as there is no turbo lag and gives great mileage too. But Yes, we've to face certain problems for the sheer pleasure of driving.

UC Abarth Tjet will be used as highway cruiser. Hopefully, they will announce some discounts in the new year.

Car started to show some heavy smoke and other engine problems, mainly losing power etc sometime around in February 2017. Though, I bought Urban Cross Abarth, I wanted to run this car too. Hence, gave it another try with all new setup.

Updates:
- Installed New Front Suspension including Lower arms stabilizer bar bush kit
- EGR Cleaning
- ECU reset
- Replaced Diesel Tank
- Replaced with New Alternator, Belt
- New Timing Belt
- Replaced Tensioner Pulley
- New Water Pump
- Replaced with decently maintained Radiator
- General Service with Petronas Vision Engine Oil
- Installed New Air Filter /Fuel Filter
- Changed all fluids, coolant
- Bumper & Fog lamps installation
- New Number Plates
- Few other things...

My special thanks to Bhpian Micki9559 for his kind involvement to make this beast back into good condition. Without his support and help, this wouldn't have happened. Thank you my friend.

However, few things are still need a concern.

- AC is not working. I'm thinking to install Swift AC in it. But not yet finalized. Let's see how it goes.
- Complete body paining
- New seat covers should be installed once all things done

Now some pictures

Thanks for the kind words! Glad that it's back on the road with a bang after all the work carried out. The Car is looking great! Although after a much needed coat of paint, it will look even better.
