revtech, IMHO the Honda City Vtec spoiler wouldn't blend with the Baleno... if you ask me, i would go for the stock Baleno spoilers... i think they come in the VXi version of Baleno...

yeah ,
i agree with u.the baleno spoiler also is nothing great.the lancer SFX had a good one.
if u want a custom made spoiler ,contact MKRAFT who is the best.

Yeah, the VTEC spoilers are Rs.24000 to be precise. There was another spoiler offerred for around Rs.15000 by honda which had a reduced height.

By the way the original fog lights cost Rs.28000.

Honda accessories definitely isn't cheap.

And regarding the lancer spoilers, the centre portion is attached via screws, which can be removed without effecting its cosmetic looks.

Can vouch for the prices of both the spoilers and the fog lamps. I thought the cost of the fog lamps are gonna shock you more.

Anyway the lancer spoilers are available in the accessory shops for Rs.3000, not sure of the price of original SFX spoilers though.But there's absolutely no cosmetic difference between the two. The original lancer spoilers might weigh a bit less.

Yeah when I enquired for the Original spoiler for my car I was told 27k & 28k for foglamps at Linkway Honda. But now I do have the Original spoiler in my car.
