Auto walas obsession:
The obsession with chrome mesh grilles!-1442070074362.jpg
The obsession with chrome mesh grilles!-1442070088851.jpg

Rear view mirror, auto metre, wheels, exhaust, exterior lining, even the Rickshaw starting handle bar (I don't know what it's called exactly) are all made of chrome!

MODS: Not sure why the pictures are tilted. Have observed, this happens when a pic is clicked at portrait mode.

Next on the target of the chrome mesh fellas will be Honda Activas, Dios, Suzuki Access, TVS Jupiter and all those scooters where such grilles can be fitted.

And no, they cannot be of metal due to the costs. It will be plastic with the coated metallic shine, breakable, replaceable and a good source of income for the manufacturers.

Everyone has the right to his/her choice, but sometimes it becomes really difficult to understand some of them.

This one looks way too flimsy, has fair chances of breaking apart one or the other when this guy washes his car.
He has spoilt the looks of that otherwise elegant, clean and premium front end of the Creta.
