    I may've got it wrong on the wipers, but 2 weeks ago a Punto with a damaged bumper visited the A.S.S ( KHT Motors) where I was for service.

    The SA quoted 4K cost of bumper + 3K for painting. Total around 7-8K for the entire bumper.

    The OEM bumper costs 2059 as seen here. It might be possible that the grille's etc had to be replaced on the vehicle you saw ^^.

    Hi Team,
    I had my 3rd free service for Punto at 26k kms from Pandit Automobiles, Pune. The service was fine, there was no glitches which needs to be rectified during service, no complaints and it was just normal free service. But the bill was more then my expectations because mostly people quoted till 7k budget. But mine went high with some labour charges also. Experts over here please suggest if this is fine or they charged something extra ??

    I don't know what's this Total labour: 720 and while alignment and balancing costing. Also, as per them there is no warranty of Balancing and alignment once you leave there service center. Is it so??

    I got my fourth service done at Pandit Auto on saturday. I was given 10% discount as well due to free check up camp. The total bill was 11k. Turbo hose pipe and linea emblem were two things included apart from all filters and fluids.

    650/- labor for changing the mud flaps, isn't that on the higher side ?

    Window weather strip change is a 3-5 min. job, and yet they charge you Rs. 200/- labour. One somehow can't garner courage to complain of these otherwise inconspicuous charges in an era of spending equal money on mineral waters and sodas, what can be done. :(

    There is no dearth of private mechanics in this country who will dance their way to do these jobs for you even for a fraction of the labour charges mentioned here. It certainly doesn't need a service center for such jobs, but they won't give parts now..:mad:

    I agree mud flaps charges were overpriced, Initial estimate was 1300 including taxes.

    Must say I overlooked this particular expense considering overall workmanship they carried.
