Boys, I am yet to get the pricing from my guy. Once its out will give you all the details.


Sumit, which part of the lower bumper are you talking off? And if you have noticed I have been sleeping a lot these days. No more ashoka's, only sat nights out. That is the reason I'm fat. Too much sleep and nothing to do.

hey guys... at the beginning of this thread, I mentioned that I had enquired with Bimal Auto regarding the rear brake lights of the 2nd type baleno (the one with the white indicator lights, not yellow). They had told me that it costs about Rs 8000, whereas the light assembly with yellow lights is Rs.600/- . But I enquired with Popular Motors in Trivandrum today and they told me that both the types cost around Rs. 800/-. I asked him to double check and he came back to me with the same reply! Any idea why this difference in pricing??

Leo, last I remember I too had got a similar quote for the clear and the non-clear tail lamps. Though I don't see a reason why they ought to be that expensive. Haven't checked the latest prices though.

Ooopss, I mean sanjeev. Not sanjay.

Goddy, spadival. I have the grill at the lower half of the bumper too. The grill is inclusive of the complete kit. Btw, spadival I just had a look at your avtar. Is it just a PSed image?

Anyway, the mesh on my car was done by a mechanic cum painter cum used car broker called Kumar from Chennai. Really talented but lazy chap..

Hey Spadival,

nice job... I also want to do the same with my baleno grill but only for the main grill. I want the sliver lining to remain and the swift like thicker bigger holes mesh would look better I feel. some how not a fan of the mosquito net type.

blueraven316 has the type I want..

Apart from that... the vents also look good.. Next time I am in chennai I will be looking out for your baleno.

spadival-i agree with ironwolf,the mosquito net looks really bad,in your case the workmanships bad,whoever did it could have done a neater job,like you mentioned its purely cosmetic, but even cosmetic job can be done neatly and aesthetically inclined.

Actually, Its quite functional in a way.. prevents "dristi" or "nazar" from folks
