Ok, I have a 5dr Vitara estate so I'm not exactly going to be doing much offroading, but I do like the look of the wider chrome bull bar.

What do you all think?  I would have to declare it on the insurance, but just for looks what should I do?

Cheers

Hmmm, If you ain't going off road I wouldn't bother. They don't help your fuel economy and aren't very pedestrian friendly.

If you are going off road I reckon they're virtually essential, many a time I've parted the shrubbery with mine (and opened the odd gate Embarassed ), I'd hate to think what condition the front of the car would be in without it Crying or Very sad

As long as the pedestrians stick to the pavement and don't jump out in front of a moving vehicle, bull bars don't do any harm at all  Wink

Maybe I won't then.

Used to think the front looked odd without one, but think I like it how it is now.

Think I'll just save the money to pay the increase I have had in my fuel costs.  Shocked

Having said that The Suzuki is only used off road, my other two 4x4's are used on road and they both have bull bars  Twisted Evil
