When you purchased it, did you got the Leather steering wheel n leather gear knob?

I'll be holding her probale in 2-3 months....lets see if 1.3D comes in that price...

No, they no longer have the option of the leather steering wheel or gear shift. yes that's correct, it has a demister no defogger.

Accident? Oh! Sorry.

A week to repair? Anything serious? I guess its better to change the tyres once you get back the car. The stock tyres dont do justice to the car!

The bumper and the right headlight are totaled, the week is for the arrival of the new bumper, they dont have it in stock. I seriously plan on upsizing the rubber, the stock tires are a joke on the 1.6.

hi Vinay,

sorry about your accident.
hope that you get your beast back asap.

i have a query though. i bought a palio 1.6 sport.
the spare wheel that was delivered is not an alloy wheel.
was it the same case with you? what about the rest of the palio owners?

Amit

A bad day when my car was damaged twice.
First ones left my cars left front door and wheel arch with a dent and scratches.

Second one left a dome deep scratches under bumper when my car hit the foot path.

Looks like the population of red fiat palio folks is multiplying. Great choice of the color and car.

@ Vinaygv - Sorry about your accident, hope you get your spares qucikly. BTW, were you driving towards Bangalore on 26/Dec via Chamrajnagar, Mysore in a KA03MH registered palio? I was driving a Red Swift and remember accompanying a red fiat palio with right damaged right headlights and bumper...

Here are the details which I have posted on on of thread.

Its been pretty bad day for me and my car yesterday. For first time my got scratches and a dent

First one happend at Pared grounds I was trying to park the car at a better place and my judgement went wrong and this one happend.

Result
1. few scratches on Left Front Wheel arch



2. A small dent on Left front door. Tough the door is working properly. The black strip(dont know what its called) came off but I managed to put it back but am not sure how long it will stick there. Still can see the gap between the door and the strip.



3. Couple of scratches on edges of left door.



2nd incident happend while I was taking a U turn at Tirumalgiri wrong judgement and i managed to bruise my cars front bumper. This one is not visible unless we lie down.

Yes, that was me. I remember your car, my wife was feeling a little anxious and wanted me to stay with you till we hit the Nanjangud.
