Karthik,

Congratulations. How are the new Federal make tires with the profile of 205/60/R14? What are your observations vis-a-vis the stock tires? Ride, Comfort? Any scrapping of wheel with full load?

How much did you pay for the alloys?

Thanks for your time.

that is one smart looking palio you got there karthik.
love the racy red on the car and with those tasty looking alloys it sure looks sharp
waiting for more pics.

might i suggest that you get rid of those mud flaps, at least the rear ones.
they don't really go well with the rest of the car.
removing them would surely entail more work when cleaning the car but it would look a whole lot better.

Those are some classy pics of the ICE

The Tyres are really broad and the Alloys looks muscular!

Wonderful pics and writings for a beautiful car. The price you've got it as makes it an awesome purchase.

Will be glued onto this thread for sure.

What speeds are you able to maintain on the highways and how are the comfort levels on long drives?

I am yet to post pics of 'Kicker' Amplifier and Sub-woofer! All pics are taken by my other Fiat friends.

Thanks krish! Yes, the Palio is super VFM!! Considering the roads are pretty bad, I touched 160kmph sometimes. But of course, the normal driving is around 100kmph.

@Funkykar: What a great car you have there. The color is smashing. It appears more gorgeous for real than all the pictures you have posted. It is certainly Value for every rupee you spend. I also liked your concept of spending the 1 lakh discount given by Fiat on ICE, mag wheels and tires.

Before our family bought the Punto, Palio SDX was our choice. The Palio was no longer available in any of the showrooms, and unluckily I never got to know about the Dhamaka offer until you let everyone of us know. Our family is anyways extremely happy with the Punto. You have driven our Punto (70% of the mileage done by you) more than anyone else. The difference being, you NEVER let me drive your Palio, but always drive my Punto

Anyways, have a great time with the Palio. I know some day in future, you would let me drive what I consider as MY Palio.

Yes, yes, yes. I would have anyways done the ICE, wheels and all. The huge discount made me do it very immediately after buying the car. If not, it would have taken up to a year in small installments.

It has been a pleasure driving the Punto last few months Sujith. Punto + Palio, I have driven close to 11k kms. Am I content driving the MJD's? No way! This is an endless affair.

Oh yeah, I will consider letting you drive my Palio some time in the future

Been a while since I really updated this thread. I am considering seat covers for my Palio, I believe this is the last bit of additions that I would be making on this car. I find the leather seat covers to be expensive. To cut costs, an idea flashed to me. I thought of leather for front seats, steering and gear knob. Art leather for rear seats and may be door pads. Is this a good idea? Do you guys know of any VFM places that do the leather work?

OT: For some stupid reason, I never came to know about the GPS given by Fiat for referring customers in december. If I had known, I might have had a GPS on my cycle too.

There is something in between, where the areas which are in contact with ; are made in leather, whereas the non-contact patches are of art leather.

This pricing comes somewhere between the pricing of art leather and pur leather work. You can check this option with the seat cover makers.
