Default Painting and Body Work Shops in Mumbai

I need to get some minor paint touch up work done on my car, before the rains. Mostly on the front bumper and fender. What are good workshops who'd do a reasonable job of paint touch up, without charging the earth, the sky and everything in between. Workshops like Mazda Motors and some MUL workshops are good, but I do not want to spend 3k painting a bumper. Also, I would prefer it if the workshop is within Mumbai city limits.

I too need a good workshop, banged the front-left headlamp area of my palio 1.6 black stile against a BEST bus; my mistake.

Can someone pls suggest a place? How much would do you estimate?

I've attached reference pics.

Thanks

Amit, I would suggest getting the headlight checked from an authorised service station - the housing might be damaged. I had a similar problem with my old Swift once.

I got my zen overcoated for about 22k with metal work (replacing rusted pieces.)
The quality of work was good.

The car was given to our family mechanic (something like a family doctor...hehehe) to "Ahura Garage" at Bandra.

I got my fender-dent, fixed and repainted. Liked the work, and sharing mechanic details

Dent removal and repainting with black metallic paint cost 1400

Narayan 98692 67205 (cell) / 95251 456710 (res)

Mention the name Durai (my driver) - this guy will immediately recognize. And give good rate.

The problem is, he's deep in Dharavi. Hard to find. So he even comes to your home, or a reasonable location (sion, matunga, bkc etc). He'll give a quote and do pick-up and drop too.

Durga Auto Garage - Narayanan 98692 67205 - excellent car body work, paint, dent removal, workshop

Any more suggestions for dent repair, touch-up for scratches etc? Also, I have a gash in my aftermarket bumper, which is one of those fiber bumpers. Anybody know where to get that fixed?

I live in Bandra, but anything close by will also work.

@amitsingh08 - I didn't. I wasn't very excited about the prospect of heading into the depths of Dharavi (no offense to anyone from there).

I have exactly the same question now. I am looking for some shop close to Goregaon.
My 5 month old Figo is now scarred with a couple of big scratches and one small scratch, and also one small dent.

Is it better to give it to the authorized service center for repairs or to some other body shop? I don't want to spend too much. Please suggest.

There are only authorised workshops in goregaon and malad area. i don't know of any good body shop in goregaon. Better you get it done from authorised centre if the cost is not too high. If you want information for unauthorised ones pm me.
