Question Replacement headlight assembly for Zen

Hey

I need to replace my front right headlight assembly as it got smashed when my dad took it to somewhere in Kurla recently. The lights are a-okay, I just need the assembly. Before I just go and get it replaced at my local mechanic, I'd like to know where (in Mumbai) I may be able to get a good quality assembly for the lowest cost. My dad gets some dirt cheap accessories from Opera House (like 90-buck side view mirrors), so that's where I'd make a trip, but if there's any other, do let me know.

the best and cheapest place would be opera house for spares and lamington road for mostly wheel and alloys.but for normal spares opera house is the best and cheapest.many shops to choose from.

Hey Adityapd,

Opera House is the whole sale market for spare parts for almost all cars. You also have one of the largest selection of accessories there.

Thanks to name " Chor bazaar" but was wondering whether all the parts sold at CST road Kalina in this market come from dubious ( theft, etc) means ???
