Hi all,

I'm a noob here but I'm simply amazed by this thread ! Quite unlike anything else I have ever seen before.
@Ms Mclaren - I'm simply blown away,considering my better half goes to sleep everytime I talk about cars
@Mr Mclaren - You're the object of envy amongst us all sir..Earlier I just envied your ride,now another reason.
Godspeed to the both of you and good luck restoring this gem of a ride.
Everyone else has been more than helpful but to put in my two cents I agree that taking the car to MASS was the best option,not for nothing are they rated so highly.

Cheers to the both of ya

MASS charges a bomb for new battery. Try getting from elsewhere like amaron shop.

@Vid - who's driving that car ? McL1885 ? Would be sight to behold

oh, and did I see something plump blasting past ? I guess it was heading towards Cunningham Rd area.

Man, what happened that the one if not the fastest baleno(s) in the country!!!

First it would be best to get the car into shape like technically at MASS even thought it might cost a bit more and then the rest like interiors, painting and all can be done else where.. And keep it reliable this time and avoid mods like real low CR that u had earlier. Mod it in a way that u can drive it everyday instead of having fun for a few days and spending the next few days in the garage due to lack of reliability..

After all the hours and days u spent on doing her up, dont ditch her man, get her onto the road or rather the track and let her rip!!!!!!

What kind of mats have you picked up ? Any pics ?
Yes condor. The idea is to get the car ready in such a way that when it comes out it wont have to visit the garage again for reasons other than just ordinary service. That is my aim.

Rahul's dad has agreed to get the new battery.

If that happens you will soon be driving my baleno and I shall flick your lancer and drop in velvet seat covers onto it.

Nice to know this Rahul. Listen find some time prolly next weekend, we will call our very own Rudro and have an exclusive bangy baleno's photoshoot which is open to all.
Should cost us a few single malts, heck I don't care as long as his eyes are behind the viewfinder. What say ?

PS : Non baleno owners are also welcome.
