Hey Riju.

Nice write up and pics. The Lensos on both cars look great..cancel that they look Awesome. You guys are just tempting me to splurge on rims and tires right away. Some of the angles were well thought out.

The Grill on his car is the EXACT think I spoke about in another thread.. the Swifts grill is perfect. His idea to use the swift grill and custom it for the Baleno is simply brilliant. Please find out where he did this and how much it costed him. (PM me)

Riju, Malik, Rahul, Binz and other Banglore Baleno boys we should have a bangy meet of just the balenos on one of these weekends. Drive along ring road / airport road or something.

Someone mentioned about the BBC remember maybe we can really have a BBC meet even though the club aint really a club.

That will also be a neat photo session. The white baleno will be the main attraction with 4 slivers swarming around it.

The white one looks real neat. But he should be having a hard time to keeping it that way.
I prefer the mags on RJs baleno better... Looks great with the mirror lip..

Daniel it was DIY that he tried. We have been trying different types of mesh for the front and he came up with the idea of the swift's mesh.

200 bucks is what it costed. Hard to digest ? Yes thats how much it was.

This weekend we are planning to get the frame off the OEM grill and put it on my car with the existing mesh. Need to see how it looks.

Hi Dude,
I desperately need some good Bangy headers. And if it's from Raj, it can't be better. Please please please gimme some info as to how I can get in touch with Raj and whether he'll be able to send it to Mumbai. I don't mind paying for the transportation at all. Or I can even come and pick them up.

Wow ! Really cool cars, especially the white one... One thing though, the red horns show through the mesh, you might want to replace them with black ones. Really nice cars !

Hey, add a triplet to the looalikes!!

I went to bombay today to get my set of alloys and tires.

Looked around and tried to get the Lenso Samurai Alloys, but with no luck. The dealer told me that he wasnt sure when he would be able to arrange the Samurais.

So the next best option was the Lenso GTR! (@ Rs. 4000 a piece)

For tires, I looked at Bridgestone Potenza G-IIIs (@ Rs. 4000 a piece) but they were manufactured in early 2006, so buying them was out of question.

Michelin PP2 were highly recommended by friends, but I simply didnt have the Budget to buy them. (They retail at Rs. 5600 a piece)

So my next option was Yokohama S-drive. 205/50/15 retailed at Rs. 4000 a piece. Perfect!

A set of four alloys and tires fitted my budget well, and whaddya know, I've got the same alloy & tire combo as Riju

The car's looking fabulous now! and it was a pleasure to drive back to Pune on the Expressway!

Will post pics soon!

Cheers!
Shrivz.
