In a market like India, you'll easily find alternative part brands in the after-market. Choose a make that's different than the one on your vehicle, as long as its still reputable. On a related note, what are the chances that your replacement set was counterfeit?

The indicators cannot just keep breaking on their own. Our indicators have broken only once in the last 10 years and that too because it was hit by a ball while playing cricket.

Another problem with your indicators breaking could be while washing. The Qualis indicators jut out towards the sides and if you indicators are fakes and of inferior quality - they could break easily. You can also go in for the indicators of the facelifted Qualis, but you would also have to change the headlights for that.

no counterfeit, changed twice, once from delhi authorised service centre, second fr udaipur authorised service. and now the right one needs change again. the car runs on kacha roads quite a bit so i guess its the excess rattling etc causing the problem. strangely, i don't think it has the black beading that v12 has put up. i'll check again what they've done.. it's the old model one, don't know if it came in that.
