    The only challenge I have is the lights. The car is too quick for the lights it has. lOlzzz

    I had 4 projectors on SAFARI earlier and now just the tiny lights are not sufficient and my Eye Cones are not getting adjusted.


    Suggestions from you guys what can be done other than fixing external fog-lights to the car.
    I have seen some cars with the L Bracket connected to Fog-Lights !!!

    Anyone tried Projectors ? Any Pictures etc etc will be helpful !!!

    Congrats, Bharath.You have got one of the best GTX in the country. The car is still fresh both mechanically and cosmetically. Please do maintain that. I simply loved the new seat covers. Also, IIRC, the GTX Safety Pack had door sill guards, try to source them. They will be better than the ABARTH ones as you haven't gone for complete ABARTH makeover.
    Also, please DO NOT go for projectors. Maintain the originality. Upgrade the bulbs and if necessary, go for aux-lamps.
    Drive safe and wear seatbelts.
    Enjoy your car
    Cheers,
    Sreehari Krishnan

    Congratulations Bharath. Your car looks too good to believe its almost a decade old. It has been kept in imaculate condition by its previous owner. Kudos to him.

    Abarth on a Palio? Hope not. And if it is, I would ask you to think again before making the decision. You are one lucky chap to get such a well kept car. Please don't ruin it.

    BTW, inspite of so many members asking, you seem to dodge the question about the price you paid for the Palio ;) Any special reason behind not divulging the information?

    The moment got hold of parcel I quickly drove down to EVO Cambridge Layout and set this whole thing up.
    Took 3.5 hrs for fixing the lights and Central Locking system. It was a tough job for getting the central locking system up and running.

    First Shot at 1AM today ;)

    For the first time I was able to Drive at over 120KMPH after getting the car in the Night coz of visibility.
