Does the hood deflector have any other function or is it just for the looks?

Quote:
A deflector to deflect oncoming wind rocks and bugs by diverting the wind which is associated with rocks, bugs, and other debris instead of heading for the hood and windshield of a vehicle, and diverts these nuisances up and away from the vehicle's body. The deflector attaches to the front of a car, truck, sport utility vehicle (SUV), or any other type of vehicle that is prone to oncoming debris. The deflector includes a wing and a pair of pillars connecting the wing to a wind tunnel portion. Air directed through the air passageway formed between the wing and the wind tunnel portion is accelerated and is directed upwardly to deflect debris.
And then you also have the kamikaze bugs that go to radiator and/or get stuck on the radiator guard net - these you can't prevent. You do have to take them out manually and/or have the radiator cleaned through pressured air, if inspection demands so.

You can also enquire at the TM dealership. www.safariDicor.com lists Hood Reflector as available accessory.

I bought the sensors and car cover (a little costly) from the dealership. The cover is in my safari Colour (Cycus Grey). Me very pleased .

Srini,

Your ride looks cool! :-)

But with respect to the deflector, I think that your guard might be playing havoc with the air stream. Don't you think so?

Not that we are trying to get perfectly aero dynamic here but just my 2paise.
