      First of all, in a forum you cannot "Expect" the response you want to hear. There will be good advises and bad advises. You have to be ready to go through both of them and take what you like. Pouncing on a forum member on your second post is not a good way to start.

      Suspension modulators are a cheaper way to achieve the kind of ride you are after. however there are no guarantees that they would work for you. It can go both ways. Since you are yet to buy the car , its better to rethink twice if you really have to buy this car knowing that you are not happy with the ride. Afterall its your hard earned money and you don't want to regret buying it if just in case even after all the mods you are still not happy.

      This is only when car is fully loaded.

      It is too bad that it gives travel sickness over long distances for people sitting in the rear.

      Am planning for these suspension modifiers, probably the roger abs one. People have tried it in cars like Civic and Verna with good results. The new age Marutis also join the same bandwagon due to the lousy rear suspension.

      I fear this make it more wallowy. Won't a nice dampner from TRW, Bilstein etc be better?

      imho ground clearance gain is zilch. Remember the donut sits inside one loop of the coil spring. So Under normal conditions there is no perceptible gain in height (unless the coils are already compressed). However, in the event of heavy loading this may not strictly be true.

      The donut essentially stiffens the coil as the load increases, so is a dynamic phenomenon. My own view is that under normal circumstances the donut does nothing. However, in the event of high spring compression it is a stiffener and reduces / eliminates bottoming. I think my Civic has bottomed maybe once since I put in the donuts.

      So... Have to 'bought' the Baleno ? or still planning to buy ?

      I've test drove the Jazz and the City. Both as you might be aware is based on the same underpinnings.
      However the ride seems to be more bouncy in the Jazz. Yes you can get suspension, change springs and all that.

      This is usually a hit and miss.
      If you are not satisfied with the ride do try other options (other cars) that are available.

      If you have indeed bought the Baleno, there is little you can do without messing up the warranty.
