Amu I think it can be repaired... only the front part of the fender where the blinkers sit looks a bit suspect. It looks like the metal has broken. If that is so it may need to be weld. But even that is possible without much visible effect.

By the way, I am curious. How is it that the front is so badly damaged and yet there is not much damage to the front bumper on that side? Looks like the tree had a bulge/protuberance that hit the upper part of the car...

Edit: Just noticed that the exposed interiors of the engine bay is showing signs of rust formation. Give the car a rust-proof treatment before it ruins the metal surfaces...

Broke my headlight, side indicator and the side-body is badly damaged. Can I just get the side-body replaced? It's the part that runs from the door to the front bumper. If yes, any idea of the costs involved? Also... where do I get it done in Pune?
Where in Pune do you live? I know a person in NIBM who did a very good job on my 800, I could not make out the difference in the paint job. He did the entire panel where the petrol lid is situated for Rs.2,700.

I live in Aundh, Pune and I have a similar newly acquired fender bender on my Baleno. Any recommendations on where I can get the repair job done? I prefer someone who does it quickly and also ensures that the paint match (Metallic Beam blue ) !!

It's repaired now... Fitted a new fender. It looks perfect, and brand-new now. Fender + Painting + Headlight assembly + Parking light assembly = Rs. 3900
Quite an expensive phone call..
