Nice job on the car.

Not an avid lover of wooden interiors unless sparingly used but overall a neat finish and adds oodles of class and elegance to a lovely car. Makes every baleno owner proud.

Thats really good!! I like the finish of the dashboard.

When my dad was looking to get another car last Dec, someone suggested getting a good baleno and re-doing the interiors.
Should have given it a try..

IMHO the wooden finish goes best with beige interior. I dont think the centre console would look good in Aluminium finish with rest of the dashboard in beige color.
Aluminium or the carbon fibre finish would go well with dark grey color dashboard.

Hi,

He has paid a lot for this. I know some people who do the same job for approx 30k with Art leather seat covers and pure leather steering wheel, gear boot and knob. Add say 15k for the leather seats option and its still 25k cheaper.

The wood finish looks tacky and out of place. But the beige is welcome....far better than the dull grey.

the wood finish looks good when the car is in the luxury segment,not for a sporty car like baleno,the finish of the work is excellent,the top part of the dash beige and the bottom portion a darker brownish shade would've looked better.

Don't know exactly how much the Stanleys cost in the market but i read somewhere that the Nappa leather ones cost around 30-40k.. It also had Stanley door trims....
I would also say that 70k is little too much but the fit and finish was just fantastic.
Around 50-60k would have been more acceptable IMO..

Never knew that Baleno interiors can be mod like this. Too good. Just of curiorsity, how do one change the colour of the dash boards without stiching leather on them?

wow! thats a LOT of money gone into interiors!
good finish, but the wood is a little tacky. Had it been something more realistic without the gloss, it probably would've worked!

Good work Prajesh.

The interiors look classy by themselves. The exteriors look classy by themselves. However, the 2 together becomes a formal-racy combination.
