    Man, your palio looks damn cool!

    Please remove the existing spoiler and keep a good looking spoiler while completely restoring it.

    Also, keep some good looking alloys.

    Thanks,
    -SX4enthusiast.

    SX4Enthusiast this is S10 limited edition Palio and only 500 units were manufactured by FIAT India in last decade.

    To differentiate it from other Palios it was painted in only yellow color, different alloy wheel design and most amazing part was Spoiler.

    But IMO, the alloys are not going well with the car!

    So this says that we have different tastes.

    Anyways, sorry.

    Thanks,

    Update:

    S10 is at Pandit Auto, Bavdhan since last 4 weeks and it undergone many surgeries and discharge is scheduled on coming Saturday.

    1) AC System: Complete system checked and diagnosed AC gas leakage at 2 spots. Fixed that problem. AC gas refilled. Now only pending part is AC Compressor Relay change and AC will work without any problem.
    2) Water Leakage: Checked all the drains and cleaned so no more water leakage expected and if problem persists then door beading will be changed.
    3) Front Suspension: Strut, Strut Pads, Dust Pads, Bump Pad changed and car will be running on new suspension. (Lower arm will be changed soon)
    4) Front Wheel hub bearing changed.
    5) All 3 wipers changed along with all 3 wiper nozzles and wiper reservoir tank. Everything was readily available at FASS.
    6) Plastic panel near AC button changed and was readily available at FASS.
    7) Rear power windows wiring checked and repaired.
    8) Got new headlight and adjusted to the correct level.
    9) Removed all the unnecessary wiring of LPG and Amplifier.

    Yesterday I visited Pandit Auto, Bavdhan to check the work done on Palio. New suspensions works very well and no more noise from the front side of the car.

    Worked on AC gas leakage and refilled AC gas, now Palio’s AC is chiller and better than Punto.

    Electricals and wiring is like new and everything works fine now.

    Now Next is power steering rack and lower arms which is scheduled to be done in next few month along with new engine.

    Pandit Auto authorized FIAT service center did fantastic job and I am happy with their services. :cool:

    Today Pandit Auto delivered my Palio S10 at my office and I was extremely happy with the work done.

    Happy with overall experience but only bit is the time taken for the repairs however I will ignore that because they did quality work with my Palio S10.

    I am very excited to drive my Palio after office. :)

    I am extremely happy with the way my Palio S10 is improving day by day.

    After new suspension now it is time to get new lower control arms and new power steering rack.

    This work will take another 2 months and then my Palio will be back to its glory in handling department. :punch:

    The legend was doing good and was using it since last few months.

    Legend's restoration resumed with new lower arms and steering rack.

    One of the fellow FIATian and MyFIATWorld.com member Vikram Nimhan Provided his Palio's steering rack to me. The rack is good condition and once fitted we can test how it works.

    With brand new front suspension, lower arms and steering the legend will be PERFECT on car handling front.

    Next part is to get paint the side skirts, ORVMs and front Bumper from Ravat Uncle.
