It will give the same looks externally. EX has lot more goodies for the extra amount you pay though. The interiors looks far better than LX for one.

If you will have to buy a EX only for the painted side cladding : YES

But if you are considering other differences between LX Vs EX : NO

Is it practical to buy a LX (no body colored cladding) and get the body cladding painted similar to EX or VX? will there be any substantial price advantage this way??

Look Fw to have your views on this subject

Thanks.

No discount whatsoever, the dealer will willingly give accessories worth 10k and slightly more if you negotiate hard.

It speaks for the TATA's marketing and Safari brand value.

Maybe if you bargain you will get the extended warranty free or a better HU.
