the black pillars would look great if the window film/tint is a darker shade. suman prefers this film though.

black alloys.... ahem, i prefer the normal ones. white/black/red/golden (!!!) alloys look good on sporty saloons/hatchbacks & not SUVs, IMO. even black machined chrome alloys will look good on a SUV.

OT: few weeks back, i saw a crazy guy in kurla (mumbai) in a maroon TCIC safari with red painted alloys! eek...

Thanks, raj_5004! I find the 6-sensor parking system pretty helpful, especially while wading through the sea of traffic on B'lore roads, hehe. The front ones are active when the forward gears or neutral are engaged, but not when reversed (during which the reverse sensors are active).
By the way, the Indica's got the black coloured sensors .

if the front ones are active in forward gears or in forward motion, wont they keep beeping in heavy traffic when you closely follow the cars in front?

Gotta trademark the red carpet and stud stuff.

badboyscad ; nice job.

My alloys get a neat coat of brake pad dust after long runs and it looked neat. Got rear tints to more darker ones last week. Guess I should get the pillars blackened.

Thanks Benny & Raj, I'm a little finicky & try to keep it as clean & shining as possible

No idea yet, it's been already 1 month since left Bangalore and i think another 1 month and later will be in Bengaluru.

Pavan its really waste buddy, we guys don't meetup and nothing happens.

We all should plan up a meet up of Safari guys or T-Bhpians in namma Bengaluru. cheers:

A few more pics of my Safari from here and there around Bombay.
Finalllly got time to fix original Hella-Comet 500 focus lights. In addition also fixed a reverse camera and front windscreen film - Garware Ice cool shield. Seems to be good.

Jay, nice, where did you pick up the Hellas from? Mounted by drilling holes in the bumper? Any brackets (can't see any though)?
