Very neat rear Spoiler too, very snug, fits the Baleno well.
without anything on the grill it looked too bland & empty,but maybe a smaller suzuki logo would have been better.[i put the esteem logo, should have gone for the alto 1]will be changin that soon, thanx blue raven for the suggestion...

Beautiful car!!!!!!

I liked it...
Though the interior looks a little dull to me..I think it may be the pic...
Also that cf spoiler looks high..it would be great if it were are a bit lower...
Also that decal at the back could have been posted on the no. plate..
Last one thing..I think your car has a black & red combo..but there is a blue sticker on your rims..If possible get it out..Sorry I like to go in for details.


But in the end your car is really superb..I wouldnt mind doing such thing myself if I had the money..

i went in for the red b cos my car had red and black theme, blue looks good on u'r car and infact blue blends well with the silver,but 1 suggetion manveet, pls dont paint the drum the same color,calipers ok , pls not the drum,i have got loads of magazines on car modifying[1 of them is "modified mag"]you can really get good ideas if u get a chance of flipping through it or try 2 get it from some 1 coming from abroad, nobody or not even a single car u would find with drums painted some flashy colours only the caliper..

Blue for a brake calliper? I'm not sure Manveet. I just saw you garage and i see that you have even painted the drums blue. The way i get it, painting the callipers with any colour other than shades of yellow, or red (or even a shiny black or champagne if you can get your callipers smoothened out) is really annoying. I have never seen a brembo or for that matter any super car or rally car with a blue calliper. and painting the drums is a defnite no no for me! No offence meant, Please correct me if i am wrong here.

I was thinking of starting another thread on this, "painting the calliper and drums - whats and what nots?" but since we have already brought it up we can discuss it here. Moderators, any issues??

Ya. I know. Even I don't like it. But once i put the alloys, the earlier non-painted ones were looking all ugly so i was like, what the heck

Hey Designation very clean looking Baleno. I just had one suggestion though. You could actually move that spoiler a little more to the edge of the boot lid. Cause the design is sushc that it its supposed to stick out. Try and visualize it like that. I think itll do wonders for the side profile of the car!

Default Awesome!

Very neat job. For me the blackened tail cluster, since it knocks off the flat bland rear view, is the key. But one question, arent the blinkers on top of that cluster? Wouldnt they get affected?

I was going to ask the mod-experts here (just for academic purpose) about the most suited "other" tail cluster that fits the Baleno. I was thinking of wrap-around ones. But looking at your work, it doesnt look necessary.

Great work, dude!
