Baleno like the OHC has been one of the favorite cars in this forum...Goahead and buy it..parts are pretty strong and reliable..and with Marutis backing its indeed a wide decision.

Default Instead buy New Baleno

Instead of searching for used baleno, try ny suggestion. there is a brand new baleno silver colour vxi at varun motors, begumpet, hyderabad, go there and ask for sales person Mr. Muralidhar Chary ph-9885382500, give ref as Mr Rajan, and ask for bargain price of 5.5 lakh and take home the Baleno. best buy.

So, I do not want my parents to be suffered.

Also, tell me some good model seat covers and their prices.

PS: Please pardon my ignorance and asking so may questions.
Please don't modify the rear seats with additional foam, it will do more harm than good. Baleno can comfortably seat 5. If it is your 1 1/2 year old kid, please remember to seat him at the back as front seats are never advisible for kids.

Why don't you get the car first and then think about seat covers etc? You can get art leather seating from 4k to 25k based on your budget and requirement

That seems unbelievable. I am not sure if there would be a Baleno still in stock. Varma, even if you can get this car, remember that it would be 2006 manufactured. So, if you're ready to register it now and have a car that hasn't run for a year, it is your call.

He will not be able to get that car registered since the car is no longer in production.

My suggestion, do up the seats on either sides to match the level of the arm rest.I dont think this is a herculean task as such if you go to a some decent seat cover dealers. (G-sport/Ceralli/Ovion/Stanley types).

You can see my baleno's seat covers here.

Umpteen number of threads exist. Read through .

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...price-11k.html (g-sport seat covers price! 11K)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...her-seats.html (leather seats)

Happy seat cover fixing .

Checked with Mr Chary ! two pearl Silver Baleno VXIs in stock . Price quoted 6.5 lacs. I did not discuss further so may be some scope for bargaining.

No such thing. What if a 2 year old Baleno is brought in form another state. Will they refuse to register it? Many display models are registered 2 years after production.

I second Mpower. That way, it would be impossible to register brand new Ikons and Accents. Poor automakers, what are they supposed to do with their old stocks if that is the case!

If you don't mind the re-registration process, there is a 2004 Baleno VXi 20000km on ODO, UP registered in Bangalore listed in "http://www.carsalesindia.com/viewadviewseller-redirect.jsp?adid=21876". The owner is asking for 3,60,000 apart from the re-registration costs. You can check that out. I have his phone number, I can PM it if you want.

Regards,
Mohan.

I am not talking of re registration, but registration of a new car that is out of production.

re-registration of a used car is never an issue.

I never knew there existed a policy such as this one...Is this a new rule or did it exist from a longer time If its a new rule then I am not sure.
I have a friend who had or still has the last peugeot 309 in south india. he got it brand new for 1.75 lacs, the diesel variant from sundaram motors and had no issue regstering it, even though the car was out of production for a year or more.

Car can be registered even after going out of production.

I tell you one incident, I was inquiring about Baleno (New from show room) in last month for one of my friend and I fond one in a show room in Allahabad (do not ask me detail, it is a long story) and dealer told me that registration is possible. 100% confirmed.

Any how my friend did not buy the same due to budget constraint. Is anybody interested? He ask me 5.10 Lakh excluding registration charges for LXi.

Yesterday I took my Mechanic and he examined the vehicle and told me that the whole body [including the bonnet and top] was painted. He suggested me not to take the vehicle. He was saying that if there are scratches they will only do a touch up job and will not paint the bonnet and the top. Also the paint job was shoddy. I could not see this last time as I went in the evening. The manager there was saying that it had some damage but there is no structural damage. So, I am back to pavilion in search of a Baleno.
