Some people buy the raised air intake just for the looks 

I have no intention of ever actually "needing" it

My snorkel on my Gen 3 saved me a couple of engines. I don't habitually take on deep water, but I have had at least 2 occasions where I ended up in deep water unintentionally.

The direction the snorkel faces has no real bearing on how much dust is sucked in, but I did drive through a swarm of flying ants which instantly clogged the air filter. Since then the preferred direction is facing backwards.

​​​​​​They should make stick on snorkels for this market. It's so frustrating when you find a good clean Jimny for sale, almost standard except for the snorkel which can't be removed as it reveals the whopping great hole in the wing. It makes the car instantly worth £500 less to me.

Hence the benefits of the Bravo Snorkel for the Gen 4. No holes need to be drilled and you can easily revert it back to looking standard.

There's a precedent for a fake snorkel: the fake air scoop on the late Gen3.  Is it for an intercooler, or a massive Holley 4-barrel carb?  Take your pick!

You leave the fake bonnet scoop out of this! It's a thing of inestimable beauty that brings light and joy to the masses!

I think nearly most 4x4s I see out on the roads with Snorkels have never actually gone near water or the mud. Most tend to be on tarted up defenders and d4 discovery’s. There’s no risk to someone buying my Jimny with the snorkel because as you know it doesn’t even go out in the rain

I'll admit, for me the Bravo Snorkel was purely a vanity purchase as I really like the look of it. And like said above you can remove it without leaving a trace it was there. But I'll never be selling my Jimny anyway

In my opinion, all drivers side snorkels impede, to some extent, vision past the "A" frame.

Can't tell it's there. Only the head slightly, but that doesn't obscure your view.

I wouldn’t know my snorkel is there from looking out the window but then mine is pretty flush to the car with no snorkel head sticking out.

It will depend on where you sit. A shorter person, sitting further forward, will see the edge of the snorkel.
