soory to see the beauty get tainted, hope it all sorts out soon.
oouch, looks you need to claim insurance, bill will be in 3-4K+ range.
Ouch, thats paining !
The headlight comes with full assembly and not the glass alone. Each headlight cost approx Rs. 3000
Such encounters cause a heart break amit. Get it pristine ASAP.
You gave me a ride in your car to Lonavala. It hurts to see this. I am sure you will fix the car ASAP to get your sound sleep
Finally, the philosophy which I follow of keeping the car new by claiming insurance prevailed !!!
Went to TASC & got it assessed. Headlights, front bumper are to be replaced. And since I decided to claim insurance, front right fender will also be replaced. May be the right fog grill also need to be replaced. SA was saying chrome moulding (worth 2500/-) also need to be replaced which I said no & insisted to fix the same moulding since there is no hit on it.
Front bumper - 3,200 + 4,000 Painting
Headlight - 3,800/-
Front fender = around 2500/- + 3500 painting
My damage would be 50% Headlight & bumper cost + insurance = around 4k-5k
What worried me came true. Had to go to TASC, - had to spent 2 hours on a holiday :cry: But did not leave car there. Asked for pick on on Monday. Meanwhile all insurance formalities to be completed & survey appointment to be fixed for Monday. All Parts are available ::T . I guess I'll have to remain "carless" for 2-3 days from Monday. :cry:
Sad to hear about the accident. Why dont you claim 50% of the charges you are going to bear from the fellow who bumped into you. It was not your fault.
Why the Front Bumper is replaced, it could have been touched up & painted, is it broken.
The guy is from my society only though I don't know him. I did not get charged up since he also did not say anything. he started checking damage to his car & I started checking my car. Both of just muttered why each of us did not honk? No other words. Has it been on the street, I might have got aggressive.
Actually I still think that front bumper can be repaired. SA said against it saying the the inside clips could be broken & the bumper alignment is distorted which may not be retained to its pristine condition. And heck, I decided to go for insurance. Even if I have to pay 50%, the car would return to its like-new condition :mrgreen:
Bad to see the beauty scratched for no fault of yours. Btw your car color in profile is being shown as FTA.
I am sorry to hear the damages caused to your Fiat Linea, Amit. It pains to see a well-maintained car getting injured. Hope, you will get back your Linea at the earliest.
