Is that dirt or rust in between the Palio ELX badge? Any way to get rid of that?
These are just dirt marks. Use some solvent and a toothbrush to get rid of it.

Don't expect anything great.

To Palio 1.2 owners, is this a good mileage? Or do I have to alter my driving style to stretch this figure more.

Have not measured the City mileage yet, will probably do over the next fill.

I am guess at 11 kmpl with AC in city. Let me check and update.
Most people get an average of around 13Kmpl with AC. Don't bother driving without AC.

Default Re: A long search ended when I found a White Angel (Palio)

Bumping up an old thread of mine. The palio is being used by my brother in law. Nothing much to report apart from the fact that the car has cross 100,000 mark with the regular service and things like that.

The tyres needs to replaced. The rims have a bit of rust in it, so switching to tubeless wont be that easy.

Actually looking at getting hold of the 14 inch wheels from the punto base model and upsizing the tyres to 14 inchers. I have shortlisted the Yoko A drives 185/65 R14 with the 14 inch rims.

Also need to fix up the small dents and scratches on the car and replacement of lower arms both left and right.

Will post more when I get the car probably this weekend to refurbhish and hand it over back to my brother in law.

Congrats on the milestone. You could get new 14in steel rims and better rubber too
