Thumbs up My modded Baleno

I've been trying to figure out how to put some snaps out here for quite a while. Well, here it is finally.. Some snaps of my baleno. Let me know what you guys think...







With the recent mesh work from chamaleon, bangalore...



15" alloys with bridgestone rubber - 205/50..
Calipers painted marinello red..



leathers from stanley.





taillamps - got it darkened from coimbatore
Decal - reads-> BLACK MAGIC



carbon fibre spoilers.. (my friend got it for me from dubai)



mats and sport pedals from hot tracks bangalore.



I'm looking out for a neat set of skirts now.. Any suggestions??

I havent done any kind of performance mods yet, but seriously thinking of geting a freeflow (without a loud end-can) and a K&N. This is my daily ride and i drive a lot. Would these effect my mileage? please let me know, (any of the baleno lovers out there, please advice )

- Dilip

Good Job bro!
Neat and good looking without being to bling bling flashy!
Why don't you bring the car for tomorrow's Tarmac race? So, that everybody can drool on it.

EDIT: Don't forget to build your BHP garage once you become a BHPian.

Woweeeeeee...! That has gotta be the best Baleno I've seen. No OTT mods, Quiet & dignified, yet sporty. Angel-eyes (like in Memo's Baleno -- may she rest in peace) would be a good addition.

BTW, how much did the leather run to?

Do come to the Tarmac race tomorrow. I'd love to see this beauty in the skin.

desigNation, you have spent a lot on visuals mods with good results. It deserves better photographs though. But the 205 tyres need some extra power that you can extract. First go for the K&N universal or extreme, that would add most power with least risk. With free flow you are entering a little risky territory, it has to be done right, else could cause problems. Also if you are driving around bad roads a lot, better get your suspension redone by an expert, the 15 inchers can give you lots of beating.

Pretty simple car not too much jazz and that makes it nice, try getting rid of that chrome Suzuki Logo from the front grill it will look very mean.
Very neat rear Spoiler too, very snug, fits the Baleno well.

Good job there Desgnation nice mods & definetely not OTT. I think a FFE setup should be the next logical upgrade.

what you said is true i should get better pics,roads are pretty good here so 15"ers are not givin me any problem,for bad roads,i use a mm540[very soon will be posting pics of it]. hey samurai u'r baleno looks really neat.1 suggestion, pls try to get a set of good brand fog lamps, theres a high chance of water seeping in if its locally made 1, i am using "hella micro",its 3k, oe [stanley] would cost 13k.
