For the non-chrome lovers, the simplest thing MSIL could have done is given us atleast an option to buy these Euro Spec Grills as an accessory here in India. How I wish this alone could have had some additional impact on the sales numbers .
Wow that is so much value for money for what it offers. Time to stalk some swedish sites I guess and hope that they deliver as I do not know anyone there

Superb transformation KeyNote. Two things

1. The water fall design of the Euro spec grille looks great on the S-cross in my personal opinion.
2. Grey and black combo truly makes this a tusker

Having owned a city 3rd gen, I always liked the waterfall design and this grill design flows with the front end of the S-Cross too.

I'll likely upgrade to these grills sometime in the future. For now, budgets are exhausted.

Yes, completely agree. Heck this grill looks much much better than the toothy chrome grills on the facelift now.

+1 to that. The Euro spec grill would any day look better than the two-slat CHROME grill we have on the pre-facelift version. So, go get it Sudeep.

A friend of mine Sandeep got the Euro grills too. Lets see how it looks on the White shade. Plus, with the risk of being repeating the pictures sharing the ones on Grey shade too to give an idea how it looks on different shades.

PS : Sharing these pictures of White Scross based on Owner's consent.

All these pics are doing is making me want them more . Any way to get these online? My searches did not yield any results at all.

Sorry to have caused you this sweet trouble Arvind. The grills were bought from authorized Suzuki dealership in Sweden and were hand carried back.

Not sure about other online options, but have you checked "aliexpress" url?

Yes, it is available in aliexpress. One can always get it de-chromed at 3M etc., if they can't procure from any of the European countries.

Tusker crossed 20,000 KMs milestone during a weekend drive with like minded folks and it has never let me down anywhere.

Sharing few pictures of the drive.

Had a great holiday season driving through the roads in our God's own country-Kerala, Coimbatore and Pollachi and covered almost 2000 KMs over the last 10 days.

Really really hope you got the car pressure washed after that and checked. Sea water is like acid on the car. Possible the worst torture to a car than anything is driving it through the sea water.

Yes Vid, thank you for the pointers and advice.
Could not resist experiencing the drive-in beach at Kannur but limited it to a 15 minute drive. Later got the car washed thoroughly within 24 hours at a reputed 3M outlet.

Throwback Tuesday :

Just another day for Tusker at the Hills with some awesome company
As a co-passenger, had a lot of fun climbing up the hills while my stock car was driven by fellow bhpian friend kpzen.

Tusker performed seamlessly without breaking a sweat.
