Lightbulb Safari 2.2 - A face lift

Having some time over the weekend I have pondered on what I can do to make safari look all the more better. I have noticed that the eyes of the safari sometimes makes it look timid (in my opinion) I did some cntrl + C cntrl + V and came up with the following mock ups.

Things I changed for the face lift ( pictures in the attachment)
1. Replaced one headlight with the headlights of 2007 Volvo XC90 - left the other one stock for comparison
2. Extended the tail lights by a notch
3. Replaced the front grill.

What do you think?

Those fronts will make the Safari look like an impotent Ssangyong.

I liked the first pic with the 'new' headlight.

You never know, Tata might come out with a 'different' (I dare not say 'better' ) looking Safari in another two years from now.

the pic with the 'new' headlight isn't bad. it does give a different look to the beast. and the pic with the tail lights increased by a notch, that too makes practical sense.

i feel spending money on improving the looks of a safari...is a complete waste! it looks good the way it is! instead spend on the diesel and do lots of traveling
