Commendable finish that Nikhil and congrats on the same buddy.

I am not really sure how different this shade is from the original one on the Civic, but it sure looks a lot more glossy.

I have known Ananth & Bharath for a long time now as my cars were always painted at Sai. I also agree with your view that though they have quite a capable workshop, they are still a bit messy with a very slow TAT (Turn Around Time).

I have been planning to get in touch with Nirmal for a detailing session, so would really appreciate if you could share the charges Nirmal quoted and his contact number.

Wish you a happy motoring and drive safe.

Do they also provide regular car service?

The Cartisan JP Nagar have listed them as 'Preferred Workshop' for their regular service.

Thought of sharing some updates from my side since they deserve it! I had last visited Sai some 6-7 years back when i had to get the Swift paint corrected. After i sold the Swift it was jeep's and gypsy's that occupied the garage and those never needed any pampering from a professional body shop. Even the feedback were mixed and since Trend was closer never bothered to visit Sai Colorium.

Recently i came to know that Nirmal from Keystone is now looking into the final finish at Sai Colorium and that prompted me to approach them again, when i picked a pre-owned Grand Vitara. The car needed some pampering inside out and i wanted to do some minor customisation keeda to make it mine..

The body was already re-sprayed on most panels (thanks to dogs previous owner had at home), the doorsils needed some paint, and all the glasses a good amount of clean up. Dropped the car 2 weeks back and got the delivery last Friday and i am super impressed with the outcome to say the least. The owners are also back at Sai Colorium and they ensure tight control is kept at painting and Nirmal and team ensures final finish is awesome. Though the painting was minor apart from the alloys, the overall outcome was really good.

They have also started mechanical repair there, hence super convenient for folks who want a one stop shop for mechanicals and body work.

Some pictures of the final outcome, will post detailed and better pictures over the week since i am yet to take proper photographs of the GV.

The last thread seems to be almost 2 years back. What is the recommendation about Sai Colorium as on date? - is it a good place to go for denting and painting?

Folks with a more recent experience kindly provide updates.

Most of the times they charge atleast 20% extra on the dent and painting. Even for small dents the owner just pushes saying irrelevant reasons. Since this is near to BLR South, i have taken their services in last 7 yrs. However, quality of work and color match is good.
In one instance, my car bonnet was little dented but was not clear at first visible check.
Later when i found and asked they rejected saying the dent was present when the car given in the first place. No bargain on the cost at all and always fixed. I remember initial days when it was good and could bargain. Lately, its expensive for sure. Even for small touchup we have to beg them.

Last time, I preferred Trend Automobiles near Hosa road instead of Sai.

Nikhil, how much did it cost for complete repaint.

Orange peel is still acceptable.

In my case, the paint has started to crack in 3 years at certain places.

My car had received this mysterious dent on the rear left door back in early January. It had been bothering me quite a bit ever since, but I had let it pass. On the 29th of Feb, I decided to get this sorted.

Called up Ananth from Sai Colorium whom I have known for a very long time. He directed me to his brother Bharat, who asked me to get the car down to the workshop. Bharat also offered a regular detailing and I decided that this was the best time to combine both.

Bharat kept me updated throughout the work and as always, was extremely professional.

It took over 2 days for the job to be done. I was requested to collect the car on Tuesday and here is the final pic I got early that day:

So this is not any kind of nano or ceramic coating. It is just a pure detailing job and I am super impressed with the work.

Here is the video of the finished work:



I have to thank Ananth, Bharat and Mr Khan from Sai Colorium for the tremendous work and for preserving my confidence in them.


P.S - I am in no way or form associated with Sai Colorium and the above information is purely my personal views.
