    I love my TJet as all of here. But mistakenly, I banged it on a pole from rear. I did not follow the best practice of muting my audio system when going reverse, and I could not listen to parking sensor warning until it's very late. And now it looks like this.

    My question is can this be repaired, or will I have to replace this?

    New tail light cluster will be needed; If you are ok with minor scratches, i dont think bumper need a repaint.

    Bumper is also broken, better check with some outside body repair shop in Pune.
    Service center would suggest to replace full part.

    Yes, in your case, I think it can be straightened. Take it to a good denting/penting guy in your locality and check with them.
    Or the ones which have good feedback in TFI, Pune.
    FASS will charge a lot for this.

    You are damn lucky to have missed the boot door. The bumper can be starightened hoever the scratch marks will exists. No need to get a new light cluster since no mjor damage. Since the bumper is of fibre, take it ti a knowledgable garage. As other said FASS will charge a bomb for the bumper replacement or if you have good will with the workshop, they might do it free of cost ir requsted.

    Yeah, when I saw this the first time, I said the same thing - I am lucky. I tried opening boot the first thing, and it did without any problem.

    Tail light is broken. and I can even insert my finger in it. :( It has also displaced from it's position, which is not seen in this picture. So I think it will need a replacement. BTW, If I keep it like that with all the chances of water, dust, etc. going inside, what damages could it make?

    Also, Does anybody know whether BOSCH pune is a reasonable place to look for?

    Regarding damage to Tail light, first of all it will look bad and then water entering inside can short it too;
    I dont have a clue regarding BOSCH

    Very sorry to see your TJET in this state.

    In addition to bumper/tail light I think chrome beading need some work (to fix the bend) or it might need replacement. I heard those chrome beading are bit costly if that gonna be replaced.
