Default Baleno - Delivery Taken

Guys.. thanx for all the gyaan.. I have finally picked up the Baleno on gudi padwa.....

Stock car.. have done some basic works... sunfilm - Lumar, autocopxs and change of head lamps....

Have installed the the Alpine Head unit with JBL front and rear speakers - total damage of 22 K.. awesome sound!!!.... art leather seat covers over the next few days will complete first round of deck up....

Now for the car... runs like a dream.... all those pot holes that scared my poor zen are now mince meat...... cabin noise is minimum.. family happy thanx to the excellent rear seat leg room..... after a lot of debating.. have decided to stick to stock tyres and rims till they wear out.... and frankly.. dint really feel anything wronf with them..... absolutely smooth...

sadly tho'.. on full load.. one of the speed breakers scraped the undebody and almost gave me an attack.... now i am yet to understand whether the speed breaker was big or the ground clearance is low...

All said n Done... I AM IN HEAVEN!!!!!!!

Cheers

Hey congratulations on your purchase. The baleno is an excellent choice. Although a tyre upgrade would have been better. But if you are happy with the current rubber then no problems. Enjoy your ride.

As for placing this thread in the Mods categ.... more so as a culmination of the Deck Up time thread that i had started.... the major mod that i intend to do is on the tyres n rims.. but mayb 6 mths or 10k kms down the line... this obviously is ceteris paribus

till then the moolah is towards accessories....

Hey ICE - Any interesting inputs that you would like to give....
