    Insurance will cover 50% of the cost for the tail lamp. Don't go for old one. Get new itself. The cost for new would be around 2-2.5 of which insurance will cover 50%.

    Thanks for the info. I'll get the quote as soon as I reach back Chennai. Don't have the guts to try out Mohandas Fiat in Trivandrum.

    The left side tail lamp was once damaged in my car when it was hit by a motor biker. I got new one for Rs. 1650 from Kava in 2011. With FASS, I am guessing it shouldn't cost more than 2.5k.

    99rpm is quoting Rs. 2771. It should be same with FASS too.

    Sorry to see your accident mate. You can go in for insurance.

    I think lamps are covered in insurance. I once had a accident in my old indica and the headlight unit was cracked, i had claimed insurance for the same.

    By the way, when is your trip happening. Am eagerly waiting to hear about it. Do share your experience.

    Very tough these days to keep car from dents and scratches etc. Anyways get the car in original form soon.

    If bumper was to be replaced cost could shoot upwards of 20k.

    Kailas - Really very sad to see a well maintained car in this state :(.

    One good thing is nothing major happened, bus just hit the back of the car.

    Which dealer are you planning to go in Chennai ?

    Replacement is not needed anyways. But painting is a must.

    It really got delayed due to my friends work. Now when he is free, Im not. So most probably we got to cancel it. :( Trying our best before that.

    Im regular to RDC. But they don't have body shop workshop in Ekkattuthangal centre. Its in Ambathur & thats really far away. So I might consider giving my car to Bosch service centre in Vadapalani or Ashok Nagar. Heard both are good.

    Im in Trivandrum now. So will be fixing it only after reaching back Chennai. Last time when I serviced my car after a small accident, the job done by Hyson Motors, Cochin was pathetic. Also they don't care about the customer feedback. So better I do it in Chennai.



    Noticed excessive smoke from the silencer after 75k service. Its affecting the FE & power too
