Hey mclaren,
What is the update on the car?
Is she being used? Any plans for the future once she is back to stock?

She is not being used as often as I would like to for the moment, because I am mostly out of town and dad hardly ever takes the swift out, let alone the Baleno. But that will change in a few months once I finalize my plans on the business front.

Have been chalking out some big plans over the last few years, basically doing some research, talking to the right people, buying the right stuff. Hopefully, all this will materialize in a while. When I do begin this time, I hope it will come out exactly as I planned. As crazy as people might think I am, that car is going to be modded again .

Wow, that sounds pretty good.
Any pics of her in her current stock state?
Waiting for the mods to start once again. I am sure she will be a blast to do up again!

No! I haven't clicked any pics of the Baleno off lately. Will be going out of town for the weekend, once I get back shall post some pics.

Actually, I am really looking forward to doing up the car again. Just waiting for everything to fall into place.

Sorry for OT post.

Drive one on highway and you will know that the real beauty is under the skin. Looks are subjective and for me Baleno is a very very beautiful car. But a drive will make you fall in love. Drive it over rough roads too and on smooth highways. Trust me, you will not find a single car under Rs. 9 lakh to have all what Baleno had. Space, pace, grace, ride quality, FE, reliability, AC, comfort, driving pleasure. It involves you in the drive and one gets attached to the car. Do search for Baleno reviews and you will know more.

Guys! No point in arguing over it. If one has already made up their mind about a car, that perception is very hard to change.

I for one am sure Rahul is beefed up now(now that he has seen those diesal heads showing off ). And i cant wait for the car to be ready. Would like to see it get ready also.
