Why do you want to put a bull bar? Just for the looks or is there any other reason? In my opinion, if its only for the looks, then I suggest you leave it stock, that is without any bill bar. It looks good like that! If its as a deterrent from small scratches, then I suggest you consider the fact that the crumple zone on the beast will be greatly affected and thus it is not recommended to put any bull bar.

Chaxy, I think this bull bar seems to be obstructing the air flow and so I wouldnt use this on the 2.2. Anything that blocks fresh air to the radiators cant be too good. BTW - if you do go for a bull bar, stick to one of the light plastic ones that wont damage the chassis in a minor impact.

The Arms already have the springs to put the adequate force required to clean the glass. Extra pressure doesnt help.

While doing high speeds (140+) the wiper blades tend to flutter. The wing on top of the blade will help to hold it down at high speeds. And when the blade on the driver's side flutters it cause a minor distraction in the field of vision.

No it is not for extra pressure for cleaning the windscreen, because the angle of the wing changes when the blades work and the wing will not help create downforce when the blade is near vertical during it's movement.

Those test drive cars are generally screwed up so my humble advise to all potential buyers is to consider driving a friends 2.2.

This BULL has more brute factor than my earler Bolero. Also the dealer has promised me 9k worth of accessories. I will be fitting a BULL bar for sure.

Here are the pics -
brother, i am Arijit from Kolkata. Even i have upgraded from the same vehicle to the same vehicle as yours...hahaha !!

I own a Bolero GLX 2002 and just this January i=I have purchased a 2.2 GX 4x4. Both of them are great vehicles I must say. However, don't know why but, i can rely more on my Bolero and not on this as of the TATA brand name attached.

What i want to know is, i want the Diesel sticker in my fuel cap. Any idea, where can i find one ?
