Prince, thanks for the correction. I was under the impression that the i tag came with MPFI engines. I have owned 2 Esteem LXs, both carbed. And driven tonnes of MPFI Esteems, including Godfathers! While the Esteem is typically Japanese in its driving characteristics, and is shockingly quick, given its price, I'd still go with the Baleno. And btw, the Baleno's pretty cheap to maintain! Unless you take it to track every month

Please check this baleno has an original paint . I doubt whether year 2000 balenos came in black colour... i have a feeling that midnight black balenos were introduced in 2002. Correct me if iam wrong...

True, no way the Black color is stock from the company on the 2000 Baleno.
Check the RC book for the original color.

Yes the baleno was originally white.My friend(the previos owner) parked the car near a construction site and the labourers managed to dump a 20litre can of paint on the car. so he got the car repainted in september 2005 from maruti dealer (so the car looks brand new)

dude get the car checked thoroughly by a authorised person... also ask your friend if the 20 liter can landed on the car.. that would have created a MAJOR dent on it bro... check the service records of the car and ask at the service station where the car usually goes for servicing about the car... best of luck
