    Something I dont want to type and share as I cant believe it happened! too bad feeling that after covering 1350 km in 4 days immediately after delivery, I was sandwiched at a toll line between Octavia and a Qualis. The Qualis suddenly came to screeching hault forced me to stop just by touching it ( speed ~60kmph and distance in bet was around ~8-10feet), but my Jiju's Octavia hit me from rear n I skipped a bit. However main aftershock was an Indigo who hit the Octavia from rear, making the pile of 4 damaged cars!

    Scene : Qualis(stopped insanely) <--- my poor Linea <<-- my jiju's Octavia <<<<<<<<<<--Insane Indigo ( Bang!) :shocked

    damage :
    Indigo : ( 4th in Q and who actually made he accident brutal )
    1 front bumper broken into pieces
    2 radiator grill.... gone into radiator
    3 Radiator: burst, water leaking
    4 front right headlight: ..crashed into history
    5 car : seized

    Octavia: (3rd in Q, my Jiju with 17 years driving experience)
    1 rear bumber: scratches and only small hole as something poked in from Indigo
    2 front bumber : scratches as it smashed Linea hard

    Linea:
    ( 2nd in the Q, my unfortunate beauty who had to stop as front idiot felt like he has to stop suddenly)
    1 Front bumper : one small crack
    2 top radiator grill : damaged and got inside with broken chrome ring corner
    3 Bonnet : 6 inches dent with chipped color
    4 rear bumper : 2 feet dent due to massive Octavia above silensor


    Damaged Radiator grill ans bonnet:

    Damaged rear Bumper:


    Qualis: ( main culprit..who caused the cars to pile up! )
    1 broken right taillight

    Synopsis:
    Qualis stopped, i stopped suddenly just with a touch to Qualis, Octavia behind me too managed to stop with a touch to me from rear, but in half a second i got a huge bang when the Indigo hit us hard from rear. Indigo pushed the Octavia on linea, Linea was sandwiched and pushed hard on next Qualis resulting in damage.

    What I think:
    the two tanks in family, Linea and Octavia made me sigh in relief as no one felt anything inside until we came out to see what has happened outside! All were safe and both families unaware of the sight outside till they stepped out! Looking at Indigo, I felt pity.

    YESTERDAY 1/11/11:

    Car is with Pandit Automotive for Insirance claim.
    1 FG claim was reported on phone and got claim no... hassle free.
    2 Assistant Mr. Amir was very generous and sympathetic with me... explained details and assured to be relaxed and things would be pretty neat within 3-4 days.
    3 Within 10 mins received a verification call from FG.
    4 within 30 mins received claim no and surveyer name via sms from FG.
    5 Quatation promised after survey.

    TODAY 2/11/11:
    1 Called Mr. Amir to check status, he said survey finished and work already in progress, car would be ready on friday/saturday.
    2 Asked for estimate : plastic 50%, bonnet 95% covered.

    Would visit on thursday to see the status.

    not that I am not upset for whatever happened, but thats part of life and moved on! now unable to control the excitement to get her out of service station. any idea how much the rear bumper, front bumper and front top radiator grill costs? any tentative guess for how much I may have to shell out?

    Sad to hear about the pile up - did you give a piece of your mind to the qualis guy and to the Indigo guy?

    Hope you will soon get your beauty back in top condition.
