Angry Swift in Hole (Pothole)

Dear Friends ,

Today while parking my car into office i had a little accident . Since there is not much parking available in side our office , employee have to resort to parking outside . unfortunately the only space available to us is ridden with potholes & on top of it these holes are mostly not visible due to grass.

Today i found my self in one of them , the car took a beating with a loud 'THUD' noise and then came outside of hole. After i regained my cool , i saw the rubber lining ( which encapsulates the wheel arc from inside ) was lying outside. this seemed quite bad. but i was amazed to see the the ditch was just 4-6 cm in depth . their was no scratch on the bumper and car was looking fine.

I will be going tomorrow to get this repaired and will a also post the picture .
Can any one please let me know what else should need be checked.

I am still amazed to see the rubber lining damage even though the ditch was very small.

Hi,

A street dog hit to the left side of the bumper made damage to the Radiator bottom, that makes coolant leakage & made me to change for new radiator assembly to my new swift, a quality of material's used in swift really sucks.

Mods: does this qualify for a merge

These things are fixed by plastic rivets or something. The edge of the cover should have hit the ground and might have plonked it off.
