EBC Ultimax-2 Front Brake Pads:

I have driven more than 2k Kms and happy with these pads. They perform better than OE. Initial bite is better and overall braking has improved. I need to change the brake fluid to Dot 5.1.

Dents fixed and Painting done

Left rear door-linear dent

My Maruti-Suzuki Baleno Zeta Petrol - Now Wolf'd. 5 years / 35000 km done-img_20210219_112026.jpg

It was not possible to remove this by PDR. Full door painting had to be done.

Right rear door and quarter panel damages

My Maruti-Suzuki Baleno Zeta Petrol - Now Wolf'd. 5 years / 35000 km done-img_20210219_112015.jpg

Dents were fixed and full painting was done at Try Auto Gears, Udupi which is Mahindra first choice workshop. They did a decent job. Color matching was perfect, but I can nitpick on few areas and I can't expect factory level finish anyways. Pricing was very good. I paid around 10k for painting both rear doors and one quarter panel.

Let the picks talk

The gear knob had developed cracks and it used to get super sticky to touch after parking under sun.

My Maruti-Suzuki Baleno Zeta Petrol - Now Wolf'd. 5 years / 35000 km done-img_20210730_180543.jpg

Got a new knob from Boodmo

My Maruti-Suzuki Baleno Zeta Petrol - Now Wolf'd. 5 years / 35000 km done-img_20210730_180630.jpg

Tried removing the knob and ended up peeling out the entire covering haha

My Maruti-Suzuki Baleno Zeta Petrol - Now Wolf'd. 5 years / 35000 km done-img_20210730_182626.jpg

Rotated this part anti- clockwise and it came off. But it was not possible to remove the knob at all.

My Maruti-Suzuki Baleno Zeta Petrol - Now Wolf'd. 5 years / 35000 km done-img_20210730_201946.jpg

Took it to lab / kitchen and cut the knob with hot knife

New gear knob in

Updates:

The boot shocks were fully weak, had a near miss as it almost fell on my head. I got Motherson boot balancers from Boodmo. Hope the quality is better than MGP.

I had damaged the gear lever cover while trying to install the knob. It comes as a full panel from Maruti and costs less than 300 bucks.

Changed wiper blades to Bosch Eco. The quality is average, they make sound and leave behind water streaks. Better to stay away from Bosch for wiper blades.

I also put back the OE springs. Cobra lowering springs are good when driving without load. Dad didn't like it when he drives with passengers and said it's very bouncy. He would be using the car and ordered me to get rid of lowering springs

Bye bye lowered stance!!

My Maruti-Suzuki Baleno Zeta Petrol - Now Wolf'd. 5 years / 35000 km done-img_20210902_182713.jpg

I got all these fixed at Wagen Tunen, Mangalore. Good job as always

I also tried XP 95. It's only 4 bucks more than 91 RON. Throttle response is very sharp. I didn't find a big difference under WOT.

ODO is getting closer to 40,000 km. Need to change the tyres soon!!

Update:

My Maruti-Suzuki Baleno Zeta Petrol - Now Wolf'd. 5 years / 35000 km done-screenshot_20210925124743.jpg

I got new map from Wolf Moto customised for 95 RON fuel with revised revv limiter. Stock limiter is at 6200 RPM and it is 6500 RPM now.

There is good difference post 3500 RPM. Overall drivability is better with sharper throttle response.

The revised revv limiter is not really helping as power is dropped after 6200 rpm. But I can shift easily at 6200 rpm now without hitting the limiter
