Paint matching looks immaculately done. Was the entire right side painted??

They have done a superb job with respect to denting and paint matching. Lighter colours and that too on older cars are too difficult to match.

If I may, I would like to suggest a rear spoiler (OEM ones), rear looks really sporty with a spoiler.

Observation after driving a little over 500km
- Ride is superb after changing the shoes.
- Tire noise is almost negligible but prominent in wet condition
- No complaints on Tire grip (both dry & wet conditions)
- Steering is little heavier after changing the tires
- Brakes are beyond my expectation

Overall I'm very much satisfied with the current condition.

I've just got the exact same bulbs installed. They aren't bad for the price.

The flippy looks great. Can you share a link where you got it? Id be very interested in one.

Yea, completed 1 year of happy ownership.

Updates so far,

1) Mileage:
Covered 88k+ on odo

2) Battery
A month back battery started giving troubles (after not using the car for more than a month) Charged it, but the poor fellow couldn't help any further. Replaced with Amaron 38B20R.

3) Wipers
Not sure how old were the wiper blades that came with the car. Replaced with Bosch wiper blades

4) Wheel Alignment
Had a free alignment check and found every spec in order

How is the keyless entry system holding up? Especially the key fob. Been thinking of getting one for my baleno since a while.

Cheers!

Pretty good. Quality of plastic and rubber keypad is far better than the one I used in Chevy spark. Overall I'm very much satisfied with it.
