well this has got to be my worst car day for sure..decided to get philips crystal vision headlams for my zen,so sent my friend with the money to get the same..then we started towards my garage to get the same fixed and as i was discussing about some stuff with him didnt realise that the signal had gone red and went through..and as usual these cops are always waiting for a chance to pull us over..so pulled over went to the inspector apologised to him,paid a fine for jumping the signal,took the receipt and drove off..no the bad luck doesnt end here..get to the garage and got the lights fixed only to realise that they were still yellow only..damn my friend who got vision plus and not the crystal vision as i had told him to..and thats 850 bucks down the drain and that too these are without the pilots..damn how unlucky can 1 get in one day..

Caught this baleno with old Honda city tail lights... I think the Owner got tired with the original lights and want to try out something different.

This Baleno looks equally disgraceful as the original Baleno... I would prefer the original lights any day to this... Waste of time and money.

[quote=lamborghini]pl autopsyche
dont do that unless it looks better than the other cars
luckily where i stay these "cool" cars dont exist
by cool i mean to the owners NOT TBHPIANS LIKE US
man i wont like to be caught dead in one of these contraptions, not that sitting in it will let me live incase of an accident.
the spoilr will just fall on me and crush me to death
anyway heers
lambo[/QUOTE
Uh... buddy have you seen some of the contraptions that stand outside Cathedral infant in the evening.They are enough to make you puke especially the white esteem-this car has decals from every possible tuner,has a snake on the hood,a scoop on the roof,and these sad looking mag wheels.
The owner is ofcourse looks like some 18-20 yr old fool who thinks he is from the hood or something.
It is my misfortune to see this car every single day when i am going home.
Lambo dude go see it.

You forgot to blank out the number plate reflection on your hood...

This must be some gulf country where the Baleno is probably sold as the Esteem...

I'm guessing it's Dubai, since Catamaran lives there!

Ananth sorry about that....You always think ahead as is the case with your dolphin....

This is in Dubai...Although the baleno used to sell as the baleno itself here and not as an esteem...I Think this particular car might have been imported from US or like, wherein it's sold as 'esteem'

Byram -
I haven't seen that esteem as yet. But did you notice the black lancer with the 15" mags was vandalised with yellow spray paint on the body and the alloys? I think he just got it removed.
Anyways, i have this pic of a modded Astra which was made to look like a City Type II.
Looked like the owner wanted the best of both worlds - the City's looks with Opels Solidity and comfort but the job was so horribly executed i doubt if he got anything except gaalis.
Oh and i saw this car near Mahim Church. A silver Palio with red spray painted bumpers and red spray painted S10 alloys. What i mean by spray painted is that if you look closely you can see the black bumpers underneath.
No pics though.

looks more like a cartoon car, he could have made it worse by putting a DC kit ..
A dc kit and that paint job will definately go well together !!
