The pick upps looks like our TATA ace.The vitara is almost the same one we get but for the bumper insert.Its a CBU we get here so i believe there shouldnt be much difference.

I am sure it is not salomon. It read as the Escudo or something at the rear. Salomon must be referring to something else.

@supremeBaleno, You welcome, and by the by you are right about the GV, it is sold as an Escudo in Japan

@akshay1234, supremeBaleno is right bout the GV, got this info from Wikipedia - "North American Grand Vitaras were built in Japan, where it is the Suzuki Escudo. The 2006 model has had a structural redesign with a new ladder-boxed chassis integrated into a unibody construction. In India, it is sold as a Maruti competing with vehicles like the Tata Safari, Ford Endeavour and Honda CR-V." Hope it clarifies your query.

The Salomon is a up-market trim level available for the Japan only market, it is in collabaration with Salomon, a sports company targeting skiers. Although the GV in question is missing the Ski-racks, not sure about it though

i have seen hanmann 5 series in chennai and can tell you that is perfect way to ruin a BMW, seriouly the bimmer looked aweful. but that comparison this ferrari decent. but i don't know how much of drag those kits will generate. and these are just spoiling the clean look of the car. the front lip spoiler looks like a tray lol
