Yes, it is a huge thing and is almost impossible to miss. But I still don't get it. People love it so much they might even start conducting prayers on a regular basis!

IMO, here is nothing great about it! It is not fast at all, it guzzles fuel like a dehydrated animal, it causes traffic jams, it's hard to drive..!
+1 to that
if you really want to give credit to an suv give it to the Cayenne's , The Landcruisers , Rovers and also sometimes the rovers.

I just saw a VW Transporter which looks similar to Tata Winger, near Infantry Road. Silver color with black bumpers. The Regn plate said "1CC for Regn".

Googled pic of VW Transporter.

I saw a dark grey Nissan Patrol with the intake snorkel routed onto the A-Pillar yesterday underneath the Richmond Circle flyover. It looked amazing!

I also saw a snorkel mounted Patrol sometime back in M.G.Road but it was more of a dark-blueish shade, not grey. Also I saw a snorkel mounted Landcruiser outside Forum Mall last week. Indeed snorkel looks great particularly on the Patrol.

No man! Sigh! I commute by namma BMTC so I couldn't get a clear shot at all! The traffic on that day was particularly horrible too so I just got to see the top half of the Patrol! My excitement was pretty obvious in the bus though
