In Karnataka,KA 05 A,B,C or D signifies a taxi. Is it the same in Goa? I ask, because our office car(Govt.) is a taxi on lease hired by the government, and has a taxi registration, ie- KA 05 AB **** on a white plates. So this Baleno might be a taxi hired by the govt.

Poor, poor taste. People like abusing cars that they can buy for cheap.

Spotted this in front of the famous accessory shop near my school (NPS) in Indiranagar.

I do not see anything wrong in the sx4 (except for the tiny flag pole on the boot).
The alloys would have looked better if it didn't have the chrome centre hub caps.

THe thingy on the boot is W&W. The wheels are definitely weird.

Whats that thing sticking out of sx4's butt?. Is it an antenna?. I hope that guys hasnt screwed that thing onto its body, as such cheap aftermarket fitments due to inappropriate fitment can cause the body to rust.

Great thinking! I wonder what he will do If he wants to put something in the boot. 'UnPlug' it? I still can't figure out what that thing is.

I think even the owner of the car didnt think about that when he stuck that "THING" there, I guess its just a "PIECE OF ART" which has a spring so it bends in case you need to open the boot.

That Shark-Fin radio antenna is not attached correctly (actually reverse of the way it should be attached) on the SX4.

I agree that the while wheel look bad in this car, especially with the chrome in the centre.

... & the actual radio antenna attached to the boot is a lift off from the 70-80s.

Thanks for the info. What exactly is the utility of this 'Shark-fin' radio antenna.And what is the right way of fitting it?

Reminds me of the "Concedes" That is, a Contessa with a Mercedes front & rear end officially sold by National Garage Mumbai (premier dealer of HM at one time). It was quite popular too, and many an untrained eye mistook it for the real thing.

One legal notice from Mercedes and the conversions came to an end.
