    He doesn't own that Uno now simpleson.
    It was sold off and he is longing to have it back, if only the owner would sell :), otherwise we will trace it and wait for a dark night !

    Bala, the ownership bit was about AMBY. That later part was about UNO which he sold to a known person IIRC, I know. That's why I said not the cheapest to maintain assuming he buys it later.

    Yes...Its cheap to buy a Uno now. You'll get it for 40-45k. But maintaining is the difficult part. I'll buy Uno only if I get the one my dad sold :)

    Late to update about the paint job done after the accident that happened in Cherthala, Kerala. Did the work in a small garage in Pattoor, Trivandrum. They did a decent job, not great though. Painted the back bumper too. Total cost was Rs.8000. Didn't claim the insurance. Posting few pics before & after the painting.

    Work done looks good, and cost 8K is pretty nice.
    But why didn't you claim insurance?

    Which shop in patoor?
    paint seems to match but looks like its not glossy in the painted area. more clear coat needed ? or a polishing session would solve that?
    are you in tvm?

    Didn't go for insurance because I would've ended up paying much more. Also insurance wouldn't have allowed complete bumper painting. After calculating the no claim bonus, amount to be paid etc, I decided to not to go for, as the painter said he'll do complete bumper, quarter panel & touch up the scratches in the front bumper. So overall it was a good deal. Also painting pearl white is bit more costlier, so 8k seems to be a great price :)

    There is no name for the shop. Its run by a person named Madhu. I can give you his number if you want. And these pics were taken before the polishing. I took the car next day to them & got it polished :)
