@arijit- pls refer highlighted rectangle in your photo (re-pasted below).

All Tata Safari Owners - Your SUV Pics here-photo0165.jpg

Is it part of the bull bar or bumper? Mine (part of bumper) is broken last week, thanks to the dorks on two wheels. I am mulling between a nose job (read bumper replace) and bull bar to camouflage cracks. Depending on the cost, I will choose one. Nose job will cost approx 10k I think, assuming body color painting.

The highlighted part of bumper (skid plate garnish on bumper) is available separaetly and costs about 1800/-. It does not need painting, even for VX.

The bull bar was around 4800 installed.

I do not like the GoldSun plate though (I think it is half covered with the cloth in the image).

Othetrwise it is great.

The bull bar takes abuse pretty well and protects the internals in case of minor accidents (from my experience).

@arijit Congrats on your purchase!
But I think that huge bull bar looks a tad tacky,I'd prefer something more subtle or better,nothing at all! Buts that's just my opinion.

I see your car has Nadia(?) registration,but please get rid of those shiny number plates,that are now getting alarmingly popular all over WB.Those are illegal btw..!

well, thats a Malda registration. regarding the illegality, its not so serious an offence there in Malda.

the bull-bar.these indeed add negatively to the looks of the vehicle but they are very essential brother. I prefer compromising a bit on the looks rather than cutting a hole in my pocket.
