This is a list of standard questions/comments which will be thrown at Denzil. So I'm making life easy for people. Depending on what you want to ask Denzil, just quote the number (like in telegrams).
Example a post below.
Hi Denzil! 1, 3, 4 & 5.

hey thanks pedro that was a nice one

Yea. With the work on the E-800 going so slow, there'll be plenty of time to work on your Baleno.

Hey Denzil, since your looking for new headlamps, why don't you try fitting the Alto lamps on your car. Photoshop experts can you put the Alto lamps on the Baleno. Also try fitting lamps from the SX4, Ford Fiesta, i10 etc to see what it looks like.

Neither. The Baleno was originally available in only one variant. The fully loaded one except for the alloys I think. Then came the VXi/LXi versions. So you can call it a VXi without alloys.

Denzil that looks a clean deal at your disposal. Plain jane looks yet appealing is what I can say and yeah this from an ex baleno owner.

BTW just check the manual and confirm, coz the older baleno's were 94 bhp unlike the post 2005 models which were detuned to 91 bhp. Correct me if I am wrong.

Whats that for engine upgrade ? The G16B by itself has oodles of torque and the biggest question mark is that how often do you get to use it.

Ya Riju i KNow its a 94 Bhp. and as its a daily use vehicle for me, i hardly get the road to push it, in traffic. well i would say the only time i would enjoy driving is on the highway. so no engine mods for me ... as oof now

well will be be going for FFE and a K&N.

Any updates?

Did you go through the routine service and could you share the details of that and the driving experience so far. What is the FE you are getting and any problems faced so far?
I am likely to go in for a similar baleno in a few days so looking to benefit from your experience.
