Suggestion to Moderators.

You could create and sell tow straps / lanyards / anti - static strips with Team Bhp branding in assorted colors for folks who wish to put these behind their cars. Seems like a new fad coming up. Though I don't want one hanging behind my car, would love to keep one with the spare wheel.

Not a bad idea at all. I second this. To be sold as an "Earthing Strap" and to BHP'ians only. That way we would know the genuine BHP'ians on the road.

Nothing silly about the strap, both as a means to discharge static electricity(utility), or as a nylon tow strap (looks good enough). There is nothing silly in fashion. Why do people follow the fashion trends like keeping beard, wearing torn pants, high waist, low waist, etc.? and then change it from time to time as the celebs change theirs. To some these trends might look silly but everyone has a right to do what they feel right, unless you break a law or something.

Finally, I got my answer to my OP. Thanks everyone, it was quite a discussion, I can understand most of them are divided in opinion to use them on cars for the fancy purpose. But where can i buy them? Any online links to buy/shops in Bangalore?

Reminds me of the dangling car nuts trend that had caught up in Australia in 2016. Supporters and opposers both were strongly opinionated on those.

New car sporting the straps, but no number plates.

People and their priorities!
