Your car simply looks good. I have read through the thread posted by you. In fact i also own a Baleno and would like to go in for FFE. Can you get me the contact details of Mr. Raj in Bangalore.? Alos please suggest which make is good. The full kit from Automech? any other combination with Remus or Magna Flow end cans? Need your inputs on the same.

Had heard lot about this car and the way it was maintained.. In fact one my friend a BHPian had seen and was about to go for it, but he found a OHC VTEC and finalized it. The looks of this car is stunning and very neat. Hope the new owner respects this car and takes care as Riju did.

Hey Riju it was not pleasant to hear you depart from your beloved Baleno.
You got good writing and photographic skills man.
Can you PM me the address where you fitted FFE and K &N air filter.
Just wondering how did you manage your car without a scratch in Bangalore?

I got the front bumper repainted before I handed it over to her new owner.

Riju, Thanks for sharing your experience. Looks like selling off a Baleno isnt going to be easy.
4 Sets of tires
Innumerable variations to shutter speeds
Sad that you have given up your Sedan driver tag to being a Diesel Mile cruncher.
Its not going be the same into a corner. neither when you floor it at a Green light.
Those who want to see what Riju is missing....
This is me following Riju uphill to Yelagiri.
It was a fun chase (sorry to be cliched) NFS style. Uphill speeds of 80-90km/h is what I could glace to see. Did we reach any higher speeds?
2 Balenos in Tandum
Sowmya, Congrads on a great buy!
Trust me, take her up Nandi hill early in the morning. One of the best drives you will have.

Re: My Baleno's review at 38,500 kms "The poor man's fast car "
Nice thread on the poor man's fast car. I got the used DEC 2006 Baleno 2 years back. Enjoyed a lot. No expenses on spares apart from 2 service.
Recently I relocated to Mumbai from Pune and there's no one to look after my car so decided to sell off. Got good offers but finally decided to take off my decision.
Posting few pics
