    During previous weekend long drive, Red hotty lost its left front fog lamps due to my stupidity. While getting out of Kamat Sira hotel, failed to notice a concrete payment (about half a feet above the ground) and ended up brushing the bumper against it. Hearing the sound, I feared a tyre burst, got down to check the damage, fog lamp was the victim and few scratches on the bumper! Fog lamp was displaced and was hanging with the help of wire connector. Fog lamp plastic bracket was broken but luckily there was no damage to fog lamp unit. Disconnected it from the socket and continued the drive.

    Upon inquiring at FAAS, was told that bracket wont be available separately and I have to buy the entire unit for @3k + labour. Was really not ready for it as fog lamp unit and bulbs were in perfect condition. Checked with 99rpm and they too confirmed the same. Then, decided to take a chance with my trusted local mechanic and here are the results. Issue fixed at 10% of the cost, Rs.300 :p through mesh welding. So far its holding well.

    Milestone update: Red hotty is going strong and achieved 50k milestone. Coincidentally she was treated with quick weekend drive to a homestay near Belur. Both me and my ride were tired driving around in bustling Blore bumper to bumper traffic. So, it was a welcome break! Idea was to just spend some leisure time with the family. Hence, did not venture out much. Visited Belur temple which was close by to the home stay
