Yes. I tried a lot everywhere. Came across 2 white Balenos but sadly both were 2000 model. A post 2003 in white colour is too rare to find.
Now that the year is drawing to an end, what would be a good price to pay for a 2004/05 model if its LXi or VXi?

Thanks

Don't get too hung up on white, reason is that very few white Balenos get sold, mainly they are Lxi for the luxury taxi trade, and we all know how taxis are driven.
Hari's Vxi sounds like a great deal.

Thats true filcord. But I would not buy a tourist cab rest assured.
Saw a pearl silver coloured LXi, end '04, very well kept vehicle, Mumbai regd. but 46k kms on the odo. Seller is asking 4 lacs. What would be a good deal according to the market rate of Mumbai? Friends please suggest!

Thanks

To summarize,

autozealot needs a Ms. Baleno only in White.

Thank God I do not possess such witty brains........

Surely there is a difference between M. S. and Ms. and their meanings

Ideas on the price (see my previous post) are welcome.

M.S. = Mild Steel? As opposed to FRP / SS?? Heheheh!

Jokes apart, you could call Anil Hemdev (& use my reference if you like) at JMD Motors - I buy all my cars from him. 98200 63837

Yeah, it would be tough to get a privately-used white Baleno. Or for that matter a beam blue Baleno. These 2 colors are not really fast moving. Till date, I would have seen maybe 2 Blue Balenos and a couple of white ones in Chennai. The easiest would be Pearl Silver or Silky Silver.
