Any other suggestion are welcome.

P.S. I haven't been able to claim insurance as the car ownership transfer process is not complete yet. While the insurance is in my name, the registration is yet to be transferred to my name.
Approach your insurance person and ask. The RTO paperwork is in progress right? See if you can get it done through insurance.

Else please PM and I will provide the number of a local garage in Chennai that can source from a reliable person at Pudupet. There is less chance of your getting ripped off that way.

Thanks a lot. Yes, the RTO paper work is in progress. I guess it should take anywhere between 15 days to a month before all formalities are completed.

Another reason for my checking out Pudupet resource was the cost. VW gave me an estimate of about 42K for:
1) Front Bumper
2) Inner wheel well/ fender liner (left)
3) Fog lamp assembly (left)
4) Painting and laboour

Being plastic parts, I guess insurance would only pay half. If I could source these for lesser than what I have to pay out of my pocket (if I claim insurance).

I was thinking of checking out the cost I would incur should I get used parts.

Inputs appreciated as always

Look, depends on the policy coverage so check with your agent. If you have bumper to bumper cover you might save substantially in plastic parts in exchange for a much higher premium. Also in any case painting and labor costs would be met by insurance so that's 10..15k out of the bill right there.

Pudupet parts will be from scrapped vehicles so they may already have been tinkered before being sold to you - keep that in mind. The guy I will steer you to will source reasonably good quality parts though, but scrapyard parts are all what you see is what you get, no guarantee.

(Edit) here's the chap I recommend you contact if you want the pudupet sourced parts - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/chenna...r-chennai.html (Multi-brand Car Workshop - Speed Motors (Shastri Nagar, Chennai))
