Thanks Surprise,

Just got back from the Maruti Dealer workshop Spectra Motors Mumbai, they told me that the RVM will cost me between Rs 2000/- to 2500/- and it is not in stock at the moment with them and will have to be ordered. The color of my car is Beam Blue.
The guys at the workshop told me that these are available only in black and will not be available in different colors, and they have to paint them as per the color of the car.
The price you have indicated, is it from the Maruti Dealer or is it from the other Spare Parts shop. Can you please let me have the name and contact number where it is available Chennai/Mumbai. Will try to get it couriered from Chennai if possible

Default Dents

Tough Luck "The Lucky"

I can understand that wringing feeling when this sort of a thing happens

I have just dropped my swift at the Maruti workshop, they have given me an estimate of Rs 3700/- + taxes to remove the dent and the whole door will be repainted to avoid the mismatch of the color. was contemplating insurance claim, but I guess its not worth it, because it will take an extra couple of days to complete the formalities, so dropped the idea. Regarding the rear view mirror, I have been given to understand that for plastic parts the insurance claim is only to the extent of 50%. But so far I havent received a proper quote for the same. There has been an indication from one of the members on the forum that it costs around 1300.00 for a complete assembly.

Bumping an old thread .. I know.

I reversed my Palio (100 odd km on odo) into a low brick wall.. No damage to the car, but the wall fell down (probably the builder used sand instead of cement) !!

Couple of days later, somebody parks a scooter right behind my car below line of sight AFTER I had got in and turned on the ignition to reverse !!

LOL, just last month I was thinking of creating a new thread of successfully completing 1 year without any scratch/dent!!...

Guess what, last month I banged my car in a hotel parking lot (to one of those iron posts which they mount with the chains connected).... of all the traffic in Bangalore, it had to happen in a hotel parking lot (I was so pissed off).... small and barely noticable dent, but it was I couldnt open the door, the place of dent was pretty bad (near the hinge). And it doesnt get over, the next day I go to the service center to get it fixed, atleast to a level where I can open the door easily, the guy does it in minute, next minute, I am outside and an auto hits me so double tragedy in 2 days....

Thankfully no noticable damage in either of the cases.

Aha! Really nice threads here. All pushed bacccccccck in dates! Glad someone brings them up again! Let me think & remember...

Ford Ikon: at 4,500 km or 10 months i think.. First accident on the car, in the GQ involving a dog (damage to radiator and bumper broken). after that, dont know why, but every now and then, people scratch my car when its parked and some people dart in traffic to leave a small scratch on the car.

Hyundai Santro: 1,500 km or 4 months, rear ended by a speeding bike who couldn't stop and stopped with the help of my car..

A few hundred KMs (15 days in to new car), I was coming towards Nagarjuna circle from Somajiguda circle, I am in the right most lane passing a bus, suddenly a cycle fellow weers from infront of the bus towards my car and lands on my left RVM. Well a little dent and broken door handle, but he escaped death as the bus could have run over him.

Only 800 kms done on my new esteem and the only scratch it has has been done by someone living in my own house. It was done with a key on the driver side door. These crazy uncles.
