The lift up trunk along with the CF with gray combination doesn't look good at all, IMO.
Looks like somebody is going a little DC'ish.

Really looks like a horrible waste of funds and too much 2 Fast 2 Furious!

The rear doesn't look good. Is it a spoiler ?

It's on the border of looking weird.

The ducktail bootlid is a popular mod for E90s abroad but somehow not looking good here. I guess it happens when you have too much money but don't know what to do!

Also.. won't these 1.3" H&R lowering springs completely kill the stock dampers unless it's the owner's weekend ride?

that being said, quite frankly this Baleno doesn't belong in this thread IMO.
A Lancer done up in a similar way was spotted a couple of times near Kazhakootam (Trivandrum). It had a similar spoiler too. It sure looked nice.
I think the color of the lancer was pearl white not silver.

This Autopsyche 3er has been posted here before. But without that integrated bootlip spoiler.

That looks horrible in this picture. The boot lid of the E90 is one of the best designs around with a small depression on top running up to a milder lip. Why spoil it?

Off topic, how do u find the BC coilovers for spirited driving? Considering a set for my polo but cant decide. Inputs/reviews would be really helpful.

That's what I call over kill. The rims are simply too big. Even the tyres are unable to hug them. He needs tyres that are atleast two sizes broader.

The rims are big and are 10.5J wide,and already running on 245 section tires,doesn't look like a staggered set up;
that said,i quite like it.Only if there were big discs to fill those wheels

If it weren't for the DL plates I would have mistaken it for Europe but 20" rims? That too Vossen in India. I am assuming the sidewall height is about 3"? Going to be tough maintaining them.

10.5J works out to about 265mm wide. 245 section tyres on 265mm rims? You got to pity those tyres. He needs atleast 285 section tyres. Or narrower 8.5 ~ 9J rims.

I guess he got the rims but was unable to source the tyres. Probably 245 was the best he got. Sourcing 20" tyres must not have been an easy task.
