I dont really know how it stays on cos i bought it as is. But its not that sturdy, especially when u got mates pushing on it all the time. i tell them that it doesnt move if you dont touch it. idiots

haha that is a hot baleno hey !!
I havent seen one done up in white - and you are right that pic looks soooooooo much better !!!
We have lowered heavy duty kings on the car - 17inch wheels. We only just put the 17s on it not too long ago - and it kept scrubbing all the time !! A mate of ours works in suspesion and we discovered that the car had NO boots !! AND ....... the struts were totally gone - I mean totally stuff hahaha
We have put new struts on the fronts, which has stopped it from scrubbing and rolled the guards!! Just need to do the back now haha.....

Have you done any mods to your engine?

My rear bar has never rattled loose ?? The only time it did slightly was when some idiot backed into it at a servo - other than that we havent had any probs.

Ah k, i got kings on my car aswell and currently have 14" rims. im thinking about upsizing cos the car really needs it but was concerned about the tyres scrubbing even with the guards being rolled. As for mods, i havent been able to get anything because i had to pay for a brand new head to be fitted as mine got a huge crack in it and the bearings in my gearbox went so had to replace those. lots of $$$$. but its got catback exhaust (pretty much just for the sound), pod filter, and some sort of aftermarket cam, you can feel and see the revs fly from 4000rpm and onwards, which probly explains why the head needed to be redone, its the 1.6 model aswell so its not that powerful.

Yeah well you should have no problem scrubbing - as long as you dont change the rolling diameter of your wheels. You may need new shock absorbers though...just depends when they were last replaced. Ours used to bottom out soooooooo much !!! unitl we put new ones in.

That is a lot of money $$ - we have gone through 3 gear boxes - had them all rebuilt hey - and that set us back a bit.

1.6 are fast haha !! Our old motor used to beat GTi swifts, 1.8 GTX, etc. We just recently rebuilt the engine - we have put a gti twincam head on the 1.6 block, ECU, cultus pistons and cams, adjustable cam gears, MSD ignition and a few other small mods. Its got a long way to go though....hasnt been properly tuned - or should i say tuned at all !! Even though $$$ was spent to get it tuned haha - long story......

By the end of the year we plan to get the head ported and polished, bigger fuel rail, fuel pressure regulator, lightened flywheel and hopefully some strong brakes to pull it up lol

Ah yeah so u've done quite a bit to ur baleno, when i got the head redone i should have asked for the gti head to be put on. Im a student at the moment so i cant really afford to do much, but ive been very tempted to buy a gtx and go down the turbo route as a project later down the track.

hi folks

last saturday i bought me a Baleno GT for the daily drive :)
it has only 85'241km on the run and is a 1997 model with abs, sscs and air conditioning.
i'm afraid the 14" original rims are not really impressive... ok for winter and sommer its ok^^
on this car is only a little low-midle budget hifi planed. my mk1 is stil waiting for repair :wink:

Hey Jimmy,

Yeah there has been a bit of work done to it but a lot more needs to go into it. A dodgy job was done so we need to get a few issues rectified. We have actually lined up Robbie Bulger’s engine builder to re-work the engine a little more. We are now expecting 200hp at the fly – with the weight to ratio it should give a few cars a good run for their money !!

Hows your rebuild going? Wouldn’t mind seeing some picks ;)

Celina

Hey , it's good to see a long time member back in the Baleno. I regret selling my 3door GTX when I did.

Good to see u have picked the pre facelift 3 dr, best looking one IMO.

Well after all these years look like my mint GTX is going to another owner.

Just fitted all new shocks and need to fix some very small item, sad it is going to my sister so won't be mint condition very long.

I still have the Baleno GTX, my sister didn't come up with the money.

Was going to sell it to here for $3000

Still only has 102,000 klms on it.

A true bargain at that price!!!
If it were me I would prefer to keep it as a low km survivor than give it away.
