Baleno is too curvy for a spoiler.

Try a Evo type spoiler on the baleno. Will surely look nice.

baleno looks good without a spoiler, i saw a white baleno with black rims and a wide bodykit.
it looked amazing.

no stickers, no spoiler. even the body kit (which i am normally against for indian cars) was neat and had a good finish.

Saw one last nite near Fanoo's too. Should have been Silky/Pearl Silver, nice body kit and no spoiler. Looked like it was running on 16 inchers and had blackened tail lamps. Was fantabulous.

Stock spoiler as in Shuvc's car, yes.

Anything above that will be a crow wearing peacock feathers!

Seems everyone is starting to love the rear of the baleno, after it has been discontinued.

I, for one... am missing the car.

You have to see the rear of the chevy spark to realise that we had a decent rear here & still hated it.

I have seen Spark only once, and was not much impressed by its looks, specially the rear. Somehow, a bit too curvy, and not all that different from Zen estilo on the road. May be, it was just that particular colour playing the trick. Got to see few more cars before i can say something about that.

I have this feeling Baleno will end up to be another Zen. Where the car will be missed loads after it has been discontinued.

Come on men, lets be practical now. Who doesnt like curve's ?

Back to the topic.I somehow think the baleno looks good with/without the rear spoiler. Depends on each one's own perception.

I have had a zillion looks at the pictures of the baleno's I shot and I find that both looks equally good.

I did not for once mention that the rear was bad. Infact I like Shuvc's cars getup from the rear. Its very understatedly stylish. What I was trying to say is that some people go overboard with the spoiler thing mimicking cars that actually need the spoiler functionally.

Infact apart from enhancing the looks (in terms of adding visual balance to a few body structures), spoilers on our cars dont make much sense.

In my opinion, the car that has a bad rear is the Ikon, it does not gel with the rest of the otherwise flawless design. The boot was "designed" by our folks. But then, when I open the boot to store luggage all is forgiven. Ikon looks bland without a spoiler.

Edit: I found a few more bad rear's, the first gen Sienna, The Indigo (not the Marina) and obviously ugliest of them all the Corsa.

ok, misunderstood your previous post
I have become over possessive about blackpearl, but two years back I hated the rear...

A spoiler is a must along with alloys and wider tyres! IMO, the Baleno really has to be done up to make it look good. else it's a very ordinary looking car
