So, the new owner of the 'best photographed Baleno' in the world reveals himself!

Among my friends, there are people who hated the Baleno for its look, who have started feeling that this car will be missed for long!

Just curious - why are people so secretive about pricing? Had the same issues in the photo forums where I am frequent. If I were buying or selling or discussing price would always be open.

I guess its an "Indian" thing. Stores here also frequently do not label the pricing and you have to ask for it while stores abroad always have a tag.

I guess thats a very wise advice. maybe i should talk to you man. Knowing my bike path i dont know how long i can keep away. should catch up sometime.

@deepak: i dont have any issues with pricing in open. But i need to respect Samurai's opinion as it was his car.

Ok, I am new to Team-BHP and stumbled upon it by accident.
I was searching for info on the Black Beauty I bought in Mumbai.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno LXi - Sept 2004 and voila, Team-BHP to the fore.
Well, I've been browsing through learning a lot more about cars and the works.
Is there a baleno owners club as such on this forum ?. do direct me there as well.

@Crazydiablo - I have a doppelganger car in Mumbai, Cheers to that.

Just chanced upon this when I was searching the forum. Its really funny how things have turned out in the span of the year.

Looking back some of the craziest things you do in life are some of the best moments of life.

Hi crazydiablo! Congrats on your new purchase. Today I would also be taking the plunge. It would be a Black 05 Baleno Lxi. Will post pics soon.
The car is mostly stock except for the 14" Aura alloys and 185/65 Appolo Acceleres. Samurai's pics of your Black Beauty had really turned me on. It really did bring out a sea change in my view point regarding looks of the Baleno.

His car is a year old now and he picked it up 2nd hand. One of the most beautifully photographed baleno on tbhp.

That's a new kind of muffler mate " a free flow muffler " . Is it only an end can change or you got yourself a complete free flow setup ?
