Sad to know about this incident. Its a freak thing as never heard anything of that sort happen before.
I feel both options were good.
a) Getting a brand new bonnet and twist their arm for discount would have been a good option
b) Getting a new car is a no brainer the best option
If i were in your shoes, i would have gone with option a) and saved some really good bucks.
Goodluck on the next delivery date.

Also, the dealer has confirmed that this particular color is not available ready with the company. So it will be made to order and also, the color is not with any dealer from whom it can be sourced. Thus, I will have to wait for atleast 45 days. No other option unless I decide to change the color, which again, is not an option for me.

^^ hey if the color difference is your only concern then i suggest you go for it. Because, color should be matched as the body shop uses as the same paint as it is used in the factory. Also, speak to GM customer care and if they promise to send a "factory made" bonnet I dont see any reason why should not accept the car with a good discount.

Wait for the car, mate. This time they will ensure nobody drops anything heavy on it, you can be sure of that! A couple of months is worth it, especially considering the car will in all probability be a 2011 manufactured (direct impact on resale value).
And forgive me for saying this, but there is no "auspicious" time to take delivery of a car. Whenever you get it is the auspicious moment!

BTW, did you check whether the dent was only on the bonnet or whether any other part under the bonnet was dented? Did they mention how the dent had happened? Please ascertain if there is any other damage other than that visible. A painted bonnet is nothing new and not something that one has to worry about. Cheers
