Exterior can be done, but those alloys are gonna suffer bigtime on Indian roads. They look like 17" or 18"ers, so would definately get bent due to the poor roads

Wow I never thought the Baleno could look that Good.
I'm seriously going to consider one when I plan for another car.

The Alloys on the Black Baleno's look sweet Man.

I think the best it has ever managed was a 15.11 at the 2005 Speed Run in BLR. Not sure of the Mumbai timings. Recently at Burnout it was clocked at 16.402, and came first.

I don't think it's in for Saturday, however. Part of the infamous boycott.

How do you say that? Iceman's baleno didn't have any external mods, it was a very innocent looking car except for the wheels and tints. I have driven that car, and it even drives innocent until you push the petal little harder, then it turns into superman, er... superbaleno.
