The black car belongs to a friend of mine. Older Bangaloreans may remember him. And no, he's not a distributor for Thule or anything.

Sorry guys, the black Endy looks plain stoopid IMHO. No offense anyone, please!!
And the limo.... er... well less said the better. I would like to hear the driver's views on Indian roads!

I never understood what those Thule racks were for, aren't they supposed to be for snowboards or kayaks?

Maybe body coloured trim, a size larger tyres and no stickering would make it look better.

THULE from Sweden known for car rack systems. What you see here is covered roof rack. They also make snow chains.

That roof rack looks like it was built to fit a snowboard or a kayak, whats the use of that in bombay?

How much do these racks run for? any idea?

Well, it does look like kayak storage but it's a regular roof rack for bags and all. For other stuff they have different offerings.

See here.

Sorry but no offence intended! But the fellow just murdered a handsome looking SUV.
The best pimped up Endeavour i have seen was outside Harpreet Ford, Vasant Kunj. All black with no exterior add-on, light tinted windows and the best part were 21" Deep dish chrome finish alloys riding on ultra-low pros, its been a long time so dont really remember the tyre specs, but they were 20/21" for sure and unfortunately dont have pics either. I hate chrome but i loved it on that vehicle and especially the design of the wheels.
The Endeavour is massive as it is and looks good the way it is, at max maybe roof mounted FLs but that too only if required.

Unhappy

IMO instead of all the little stickers here and there the guy could have used a "billboard" like the one you seen behind Bus's.

Yuck...!

What is that a coffin on the top of the Endeavour ?
I wonder why people actually pay 15L and get a nice SUV and fit that kind of crap on it spending money and make the SUV look like prospective candidate for "wacky" thread winner.

It definitely belongs to the CONFIDENT GROUP and you can find it in their newest resort off Bannerghatta Rd in Bangy, Confident Cascade. Nice posh place to spend a couple days in, a perfect weekend getaway from the city type of restort.

Pics of the Limousine and the resort attached!! I was in AWE for a few minutes the moment i spotted the car, even tried looking through the windows, dark tints it's got, !!

Hats off to whoever Modded this car, super de duper!!

+1 to that. Even I feel the same. OE rims looks a lot better.

i somehow feel that the current alloys look cheap!

My thoughts exactly. Actually the Group's name on the side too looks kind of silly.

There is one Red and Black Endeavor parked near Globus Bandra.
It is done very neatly. Has some great Rims and tyres.
Also I think it has some changes in the Suspension made. The car looks raised.

I think the same guy even has a Fortuner on some Bling oversize rims.
