Such a beautifully kept car. Congrats! My 1.6 is nowhere close to this condition.

A functional mod. Tilt steering in Palio, probably the first in the country in hatchback.

Fiat gave nifty features in Siena Maestro, Palio Adventure Sport BS-3 and Petra ELX, one of which was tilt adjust steering column. Asked my mechanic to source one for me from any source possible and after waiting for 5-6 months, the part arrived yesterday. Was a bolt on Fit in Palio, and the up down adjustment range is 1.5 inches. Long journeys will just be more comfortable and ergonomically better. But then, this is real comfort, to the max.
