Great TOM,
It rocks.To be very frank this Lenso wheel model is my favourite for a long time.But avoided it for my SIENA because of the PCD.Congrats on the buy.I have fallen in love with White MJD.Today went to Concorde and saw a White Mulijet which had done only 2k kms.He had fixed a Lenso white wheel 100PCD.The model is Maglite in White.i dont know exact name.I adviced him to change the Engine Oil to reduce noise as other guys told.

Easily one of the best Palios around. What is the secret about the license plates? Where did you get them made? Was this design known to the number plate guy or you showed him somehow? White wheels are excellent. Great choice!

Tom,

Congrats on your car. Palio in white looks good.

Have you fitted a 100 PCD alloy on the Palio?

Hi TomRider,
Most other owners here in Bangalore have mentioned a FE of about 16 with AC. Was wondering how come you are getting only about 13-14. Would this be because of the 14" wheels?

Brilliant.... and to be very frank I still like the interiors. They are not as bad as they are made out to be in the forum.
