Great looking and detailed photos. I don't know why but your photos are more detailed than I saw anywhere else. Maybe I am inclined towards the Pearl White that is why. My heart is burning and will vanish soon if it continues

Congratulations Chaxy. Its great.

One question for Safari owners though.

In the attached photos, why are there two holes in the dashboard?

The two holes that you see are the A/C ducts that port the AC vent on the doors.

Another question, not necessarily specific to the Safari. I have noticed that the wipers have a broad plate on them. This can also be added to wipers which come with them. Does it have any function?

Also the dealer has promised me 9k worth of accessories. I will be fitting a BULL bar for sure.
Isnt the BULL BAR is a compromise on the safety issue??? (1)

I had the bullbar on my Bolero also and found it very useful to keep all the Autorickshaws/taxis away from the vehicle. It ensures your right of way
autos and call center taxis are such a pain in Hyderabad. I agree that it may be harmful to pedestrians.
