Voted. Came across this thread today.

But my opinion might be subjective as I do not like spoilers.

Anything in proportion looks good, specially the spoiler you have installed.

I have voted for Yes, looks great. Please do post more pictures of the Baleno. Thanks!

To this level it is Okay, only those tall "cloth hangers" are a put-off for me.

Thanks Eddy / Anurag! This is the OE VXi spoiler which looks the best on the Baleno. The best part of the OE spoiler is that they do not end over the boot - but extends slightly over the sides.

Here are some more pics :

I must say one of the spoliers which looks nice, clean & uncluttered. While I personally prefer the clean lines, if I had to get the spoiler, this is closest. The contours on the sides are

I envy you.

What a car it is! And hats off to you for maintaining it beautifully. Looks like just out of factory. Ages well IMHO.

OEM spares are best as they are specifically designed keeping the car in mind and not some 'universal' fit for all types.

I think it looks good with the spoiler than without. I had a silver baleno lxi, and did not get any spoiler installed. Maybe I should have! It looks fabulous!

v12, the car looks better with the spoiler. Did you get the OE Vxi spoiler recently ? Where did you source it from and what is the cost ?

Thanks Sheel, Anurag, Shyam, Eddy and Supremebaleno. Yes, this is the OE spoiler from the VXi model. We got it for 500 bucks only from CST Road where a VXi was being scrapped. It wasnt in great condition though - but we managed to get it fixed and repainted.

A minor addition to the Baleno's rear. A pair of reflectors on the bumper.
