beemer, i have moved it to the edge of the boot lid , not too much to the end though,anyway will try to 1's more , thanx 4 suggestions.

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!
i painted jus the blinkers with smoke affect paint,pls dont paint the full light cluster b cos it would make it look more flat[you all know how flat a baleno tail cluster is]so jus covering the orange area would make it look smaller, the red part of the light looks nice, it looks black when its off, but can be seen when u on the light,so it doesnt get affected,i got this done from "kit up' coimbatore.

Yep, i sure did. Thanks a lot mate, I also know how exactly it would look like if you attempt to do these on our cars . like designtaion said the corvette one is just too cool, but you have to get it smoothened out first before the painting. but the brembo blue is . Please let me know the link for the brembo if you can.

My advice to you, get it cleaned with a sand paper and kerosine and get it painted mat black. Trust me it would look better

Default nice rear....

neat job on the baleno buddy...... the rear doesnt look half as bad now!! thts really something. those blue stickers really ruin the profile of the car.....try to get rid of them.

hey mayb someone should go really beserkkk and try to make the baleno rear look more like the noble m12 gto!!!! lol!!! if it turns out well it'l be a revolution.......if it doesnt someone'll probably snap 'em and add it to the "wierd and whacky mod job thread".

jokes apart i think its something to consider...... check it out!

what blue stickers????i never put any blue stickers,if u mean the logo on the wheels, its a cup[plastic] which is provided by 'hijoin". talkin about trying to modify the baleno to a noble m12 gto..i will have to give it to dilip chabria and every 1 here knows what he does with cars.flipsyde i think v should not fool around with the identity of a car, with the given looks of the car jus make it look better, not change the whole car and try to make it look like thats just walked out from planet pluto.

Very nice car. Glad you've not gone overboard with the visual mods. Keep it clean.

Neatly done car. Looks great. Especially the idea of blacking out the rear indicator was great - gives character to the usually odd rear of the Baleno.

A neatly done job designation. Not a hint of overdone jobs on your car. Simply awesome!
