    Hi Abhinav,

    Headlight needs to be replaced as there is no provision for the glass.
    Secondly bumper can be repaired in local car market,plastic welding they call it.
    Pictures says that bonnet is almost ok and can be aligned and fixed back.

    New headlamp = ~ Rs 2200.

    Opt 1: Bumper replace + Paint + Labour = ~ 2200 + ~3k-4k + ~600
    Opt 2: Bumper Welding fix + painting = Rs 1k-1.5k

    Opt 1: Bonnet repair + full repaint = ~ 3-4K
    Opt 2: Bonnet dent removal + paint touch up - ~1k or less

    Why don't you opt for insurance to get these fixed perfectly?
  4. Thnx for ur replies guys:

    The reason behind not going for the insurance option is that I cant afford to leave my car for a week or two. Plastic parts can fetch only 50% of the amount from insurance company. Firstly i will seek advice from one of my known denter and then will decide on the basis of cost and time which i can save.
