It's a bumper sticker, can also be used front of the glass. Do a search on the forum on how to get some.

BTW, is the Blue colour in question, still available? I have my doubts. Had been to RNS the other day to choose a colour for our (hopefully) new Wagon R.

I asked the GM about the colour options on the Baleno and i don't think she mentioned this blue.

While getting my Baleno, my confusion was between Black and SilkySilver (settled for Black finally though it does tax me on maintenance as I do not like someone else cleaning the car). Pearl Silver was also good, but too common on the roads. White was out and Beam Blue was nowhere to be seen to check out.
In its first avatar, the Baleno had some really great colors - a kind of light blue, green and red. Wonder why Maruti does not add these colors to the list so that the buyer has more choices ?

A little off-topic, but just wondering what you guys think looks better - the current Baleno grille or the old honey comb grille. I feel the latter looks better.

hi

i think the beam blue would look great with dark grey alloys. but on the other hand as mentioned earlier by other t-bhpians, getting it repainted when your car gets scratched would be a pain. the baleno vxi in black with chrome rims would be absolutely off the hook.

just my two bits
cheers

I fully agree with you regarding the grill aspect. The old grill (it had less of chrome) looked better than the new one. I also think that a white Baleno would look good if it is fitted with unpainted, black bumpers, to create a contrasting effect. Body coloured bumpers increase the monotony of the car's somewhat drab styling.
