    Default Baleno Deal struck thru Pakwheels

    I bought a 99 Model Baleno through the courtesy of Pakwheels.com. The car was in Karachi and I was in Islamabad. After the initial introduction, we exchanged all information on the net. Finally I transferred the money (also on-line) and got the car in four days time through NLC. Both of us were Pakwheel members and trusted each other.

    After receiving the car, I installed powered steering, changed tyres, upgraded upholstry and other minor replacements including halogens etc.

    Here are some pics as of now.

    In the upcoming Islamabad Meeting, I am looking forward to sharing this experience with other Pakwheel members.

    Dear hasnain2005
    I would like to ask you some questions:

    1. What is the actual price of the car
    2. How much did you spend on the car as you said that you upgraded it with PS PW etc.
    3. Are you interested in selling the car; and what would be the demand

    Thanks
    Shah Mir

    All told, the car has cost me 550,000. I will be sending the car to Fuel Tech, Rawalpindi for CNG Installation day after tomorrow. The kit is Lendi Renzo (EFI) with 55 Liter (dead wieght) Influx cylinder. Cost of kit...brace yourself for this...50,000 with Lendi Renzo emulator and advancer.

    The car will eventually cost me exact 6 lacs. But its worth it. Power steering was for 11 thousand. Yokohama tyres traded in for 7000.

    I will consider selling it, if I get something I am dreaming....not spectra now (sorry @spectra)..."dil ka safar aik hee manzil per bus nahin...uus ka khiyal hamain iss baras nahin"....

    No one asked who was on the other side of the deal ?

    @SL my baleno 2005 went for 815,000.

    The car was originally ELI, after conversion to PS, I changed the monogram to GLIP. In fact I remember there was one version called " ELIP" in 1999 wherein PS was introduced in simple ELI and thus labelled ELIP.

    @ robin Its 1.3 L.

    As for treat, anyone in Islamabad is most welcome. On working days you would be taken to my bank's executive cafeteria for soup, chinese, hot gajar ka halwa, and on weekend to KC Grill for Kalmi Tikkas, the most in thing.

    I might not be able to make it on 21st as there is a tentative plan of my going to Karachi on an official trip on Friday. I will try to be back by the 10 AM flight on saturday so that I can join you people. However, if I miss it, it would be unfortunate for me. Will get the updates though.
