    Vecto told me that they can do it for rs 2000. I guess i will go with them,as its a new car and i wouldnt want to risk that at local garages.

    Do give the Trend Automobiles a try. They did a fantastic job on a red punto. So expect good finish and paint matching. It will be lot cheaper too.

    That is sad. I have almost similar story that happened on Sunday night (yesterday).
    An idiotic guy on his bike was trying to squeeze in between my Punto and road divider on my right side and his bike got tilted on rear right door and I quickly showed my hand and try to hold him. He got angry and he threw his bike on the right front door - needless to say, I repent on my decision to talk to the guy. It caused some deep scratches (around 4 inches big) and chipped off Punto's beautiful red decal beneath the window along with paint underneath (this is just like a dot).
    Later, when I checked there is a very small dent on the long scratch :( - that really hurt me. Anyway I let that guy off because I was in a hurry to attend reception of my friend's marriage.
    Back home, I tried Meguiar 2X scratch remover and it made the scratches almost invisible. The dent too is not easily visible. But it really pains me since this is the first time a guy is doing like this to me and then getting angry on me even though there is zero mistakes from my side. After going forward for few meters, he even tried to pick up a stone to scratch my car further (as was seen by my friend and my wife), but luckily I took a left turn which he did not really think of. But I don't have a pic right now.

    Not sure now if I should go for a paint/dent removal job with or without insurance claim (I can club two other small scratches I have on car's right side). Worse thing - I couldn't note down his vehicle num or take a photo.

    Does anyone of you have experience in claiming insurance for small amounts (say it exceeds the NCB amount).

    I have seen many such incidents from B'lore. Do guys in B'lore have any road sense at all or are they all just some eccentric road users. I have seen myself many incidents in B'lore or Karnataka where they have been absolute nonsense in terms of road sense.

    No offence to any of the forum members

    My incident happened when I was waiting in MG Road-Brigade Road junction signal peacefully. He tried to squeeze in to a space that was almost not existing.

    @vayfiat Sorry to hear that. Today I had an altercation with a cab guy near the electronic city toll plaza. He went to an empty queue and conveniently squeezed his way in the regular queue. Bangalore has probably some of the worst driving sense among guys. The neighbouring states are far better.

    Somehow, I have to stop caring about these idiots. I would give anything at this point of time to move to a different country (developed) and be among civilized gentry.

    Sorry for the rant, I guess at the end of the day, they are failures in life. Since they cannot afford what we can (through hard work) they pick on us.

    Story I guess is same everywhere. I'm not sure how to deal with this. If some experts are out there, please help :)
