This?


This?


This?


Or this?




Wasn't quite sure which of the last two pics might look better to you .

PS: First two pics from Riju's thread. The others are arbitrarily taken from Google Images. Can't remember the particular site details. I had saved these images long time back on my desktop. Just uploaded them.

Whoa that paint job rocks. Looks killer. Can also see an intercooler. Is this a photoshop job or for real (linky points to the photoshop thread, hence asking).

I like the metallic brown baleno the most. The pearl silver and white are equally good too. But white can be painful to maintain in the monsoons. White looks best when clean IMO. On a lighter note, the babe in the 3rd pic will do just fine. Then the color of the car wouldnt matter. I dont like the boxy rear bumper though. its plain ugly.

Rahul my car is Silky Silver and Mallik's baleno is a shade called flat white(not the one's you see on the newer swifts).

I would say try the shade which pawan has photoshoped. IMO looks super cool on a Baleno. Else check GTO's garage(V-tec), that shade too would look nice.

Adi thats a photoshop job man.

Isn't your car the same colour as mine ? Mine is pearl silver for sure.

Turbo plan was to anyways start only in Feb 2008. Thinking of a new paint job next month.

Haven't decided yet. Looking at some other alternatives who can do as good a job if not better.

Nopes our car colors are different.

Regarding the paint job call me over the weekend,there is a place in Nagawara which does a pretty decent paint job(read resonable).

Maybe we can drop by at Nexus also and check.

I am looking at a place with a proper paint booth, hot coat (?) et all. Last time I got a reasonable job done all the paint pealed off.

White with bodykit and your black wheels will look amazing. Why dont you try photoshopping your car?
