Total money paid was 2.5L
wouldnt you have got a Baleno for 40-50k more. But then for another 50k, you would have got a Honda 1.5. Was just getting greedy.
The limited edition looks nice. Keep her well.

Hi Dipen,

I could bought a baleno for another 50K and an OHC for more 50K and the list will keep on be going... but according to me one should settle for a car which the heart goes for and for me, am a long time esteem Craze fan cheers:

It is the tightening of the body/chassis bolts to the specified limit.

There are no wooden dash board JP, the dash panel has been given a wood like finish in plastic, certainly not an attractive proposition. Today the limited esteem seems like a joke, but when it was released in late 2001 or in 2002, it had the works, there were no esteems with OE alloys, leather seats or spoiler, yeah they were great at that time.
