3. Quarter panel
4. Quarter panel glass
5. Rear RH door.
6. Front bumper
7. Rear bumper
8. Rear Tail Lights
9. Running board repair.
10. Right rear view mirror repair.
From the parts which you have listed, I think the quote of 5.5L is too high. Any other dealer from whom this can be checked?

Im not really concerned with the cost since the Insurance will cover the bulk of it. I just hope the work is done properly. I hate rattles and niggling issues that usually crop up after such repairs.

It is impossible for all these parts to cost 5.5lac. The Skoda Rapid parts are not typical Skoda expensive and even if it did, it is impossible to arrive at 5.5lac. All of this should cost about 1.5lac tops.

Do you have zero depreciation cover? Otherwise for a quote of 5.5L, I think you will have to pay a significant amount. How old is your car? I still feel though that the estimated quote is very high

+1. That is what I am thinking as well.

I dont have zero depreciation cover. I going with the faith that insurance guys will know an inflated price tag when they see one. The surveyor also needs to take pictures of the damage as evidence. they are bound to get caught if the price is over inflated.

I second your thought. I felt that Gurudev motors sales team is not courteous and they look at you in a way that "are you a buyer ? "

Did you felt anything similar in service too ?

This can be avoided only if they have competition
