      Question SX4 Hood Protector

      Guys,

      I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, if not? Sorry! Would the kind mods here move it to an appropriate place then? Thanks!

      Would it be possible to get the Hood Protector for SX4 in India? Or i would have to ship it from the US? (Shipping charges too expensive!)

      If your are looking for synthetic, leather or sticker protector/bra you can get it done locally. Any plastic hanging there will be another source for rattle or cleaning.

      Me thinks, it makes it look fugly? Doubt these are available in India, unless you plan to get them made in fiber glass/plastic locally.

      Always thought these were to prevent scratches or paint chipping off from flying debris from the vehicles in front? In which case, this sounds like a better option without ruining the looks of the car?

      Yup this is some kind of carbon fibre vinyl bra... Similar to vinyl stickers...

      If you want to cover the hood with something for paint protection from scratches/rock chips etc best to go for some kind of clear bra...

      I had checked with 3M Bangalore a while back, they do have some clear bra options for bumpers, lower parts, however they were not willing to quote a price without seeing the car...give them a call if you want

      The SX4 Hood Protector is a Genuine Suzuki Accessory. As per what i read it installs right under the hood using existing holes! Yes MechaniX there would be chance of Rattle tho! But as per some users on other forums, they do say they don't hear any!

      Yep it does kinda look Fugly! Even tadukuttan was saying these are available only in the US and unseen in India! No specific reason tho, kinda adds a different look to the vehicle (maybe something to keep the evil eye away too) This Genuine part costs just 60 to 70 dollars only, but the shipping is a whopping 300 dollars by UPS!!!

      Exactly! This is actually why i would like to have one. But i don't want to have a sticker there. Wonder why they ain't providing this in India as most of the time we have to deal with stone crapping Quarry Trucks that don't bother to cover their stone or sand loads!

      Guess shipping from US is the option now

      Thank you
