Deja vu for me. Thats a beautiful car. Still stands the test of time I must say, even though its an old model.

You just take care of her and she will never let you down. There is a charm about a black baleno which I cannot explain, and if you ever get tempted to go the mod way you have a good car there too.

The price is certainly high (even for chennai standards) considering that you bought it from a dealer (First Choice !!!). Please do not even believe the odo when you buy from a dealer.

I have to exchange which dealer should I try with: normally my friends pick up tyres from the petrol pump tyre shop in Kalkaji on the ORR. How much can I expect for these tyres?
How did you come to the conclusion that those were new tyres ? I am yet to know of an used car dealer giving out new tyres for used cars. I am sure those are OLD tyres, please check the dates on those tyres.

@manolin, congrats on the new car. Looks great. I have a blackie too - done 6 years and 48K kms and hopefully I would have her for atleast another 9 years minimum.

I agree - the price seems higher, given what Balenos are fetching in Chennai (prices in Delhi being cheaper for cars). But now that the deed is done, no point wasting time on this - go ahead and enjoy the car.

If the tyres are new, you could go to a tyre dealer (not a petrol pump. Do a search on the forum for a good dealer in Delhi), who would buy back these tyres and give you new and better ones for a slightly higher price.
Since these are new tyres, you would get better resale value for them as compared to 10K run ones. So if it is something you plan on doing, and if you do not mind spending on it, do consider doing it earlier rather than later.
