How come you had to pay cash and are still awaiting insurance?
Did you not have a cashless policy?
To the best of my knowledge you pay only 50% for plastic parts, so your damages should be much lesser.

Oh My god!!!
You sure are a lucky man and your gods must like you!
That is a nasty accident. Thank god nothing happened to that guy otherwise the bill on the safari would have been the least of your worries.
The damage can be mended, but if anything would have happened to that guy, well lets not even talk about that!

He was awake by the time they brought him back afer the CT scan.

Since they didnt have any issues and thr local crowd saw how it all happened we all didt want a case and split after settling his hospital bill.

JK, you have demonstrated the perfect example of fellow care risking yourself to the wrath of mob fury. Almighty was kind on you. So was the crowd which gleaning from my road experience appears an exception. Anyway all is well that ends well I am sure you would have been a little shaken by the incident but appreciate doing everything that you did Hope you enjoy driving the safari without any further incidents.

i am very glad to hear that you took the initiative to take him to the hospital and cover all his medical expenses. i have heard that the people in kerela beat up the car driver in the event of an accident? true?
Well depends

As I said I was lucky. I guess the Tvm reg fancy number helped a bit.A friend and TBHPian's (Sameerdg) uncle etc helped me a lot. And people saw this accident happening and knew how well I tried to avoid this happen.

I know the best man to do these kind of jobs at Tvmor maybe this part of Cochin. Even Steeroid met him and was all wow about his knowledge when it comes to paint and stuff. He runs a shop called N.N. furnishing or so aka Color Wheels at Chakka.

They will give me the DD not the workshop and hence.

JK, although i had an idea that something had occurred since you didnt get your vehicle for the KL meet, i didnt think it was this bad.

Thankfully, nothing more than this. As we all know, could have been a lot more worse.

Could have avoided if there was no damage to front glass and reflector.

JK,

Just read your tyre cut and accident. Sorry for both.

The tyre cut looks like a clean/controlled incision - vandalism perhaps ?

Also unfortunate that all the parts damaged in the accident turned out to be plastic ones, with insurance clauses about reduced payout for plastic parts.

Hehe, nice one.

Kp, the headlight is fixed using two bolts to the body and both of these were broken.

Default odo @ 26200kms

Did trip to Kovai last day and was wondering if I would need a sedan couple of years down the lane as now roads are getting wider and better. There's a safe speed limit for an SUV:(

People were against beige interiors coz they say it will get dirty. At 26k I would so I dont have that issue and dirt goes off in a wash.

Mileage max is 11.25kmpl, city or highway.

Ah,met the Bolero Storm on the way to Kovai. Well, its fast. Was able to keep up with me till 120. In gear acceleration is good but he knew he cant overtake me. Hope the car isnt for a customer (it had no reg plates).
