A few dig outs from the net :





Just shows that a slight change to the design of the rear bumper with a spoiler would make a huge difference to the so called bland looks ..

A small suggesion, a suzuki logo (big "S" in chrome) placed at the center in between "maruti-suzuki" and "baleno" letters on the back side will improve looks, just like swift or zen.

Regarding the number plate, a wide plate (as in post #89) looks better rather than sqare like. The chrome strip over it definitely looks better. A different shape for the strip instead of uniform height (like slightly tapered towards both sides) may look even better.

this is just my personal opinion/taste, need not match with others!

What colours do these masking paper come in? Maybe a matching one covering part of the tail lights would look better.

Hi all...... as an immediate improvement....... can add bulbs to the inboard side of the tail-lights where Maruti has given blanks but no lights. All it needs is a coupla bulbs and coupla metres of wire. With dual tail-lights, the whole look changes....... try it and see. Then you can sit back and admire the brighter tail end while you ponder on how to make it look even better..... :-)
