The local RTO here mentioned that a Petrol to diesel conversion is no longer legal. You might want to look into that as well.

Frankly, it wouldnt make sense for you to convert the car although you are emotionally attached to it. Its old and run a lot. Things would start to fail soon and baleno spares dont come cheap-Even the non-sgp/mgp spares.

But if you insist on going ahead with this, i wish you all the best! Hope it serves you for many k miles!

Conversion of Baleno to Diesel is not a good idea, there are multiple options on hand.

1. Conversion to CNG/LPG.
2. Sell the Baleno and put the planned money (that you were planning in spending on Diesel conversion). All this put together you might get a hatch in Diesel.

PS: Before any Baleno lover jumps up and starts comparing driving dynamics of Baleno Vs Hatch, please consider a Baleno with a heavy Diesel engine will not behave on the road as well as it currently does.
