If you’re a regular follower, you must’ve already read about the Maruti Baleno to Mercedes A-Class conversion. The stock front and rear end of the hatchback was ripped apart, and was replaced by aftermarket bodywork, centred around Mercedes’s ‘Diamond Grille’. The grille looked original in images, although there’s a good possibility that it was an aftermarket replica. The after-market 16-inch, five spoke alloy wheels were wrapped around fatter, low profile rubber.

    Benz has a very good brand image. The work on the car is quite good and can be deceiving for any guy who is not much into cars. Also one incident and people will talk about Benz.

    Mercedes got an itch in their bumm due to this as if such style becomes popular people won’t buy their stuff. So stop such an eventuality they pulled their strings & got this enthusiast reprimanded officially. Also homologation without prior permission is a crime then why concerned officials allow after market upgrade industry. It’s like to have the liberty to own a pen but do not have the liberty to use it fully.
