Yesterday, I got a chance of driving zest on Yamuna Expressway for a brief 10 KMs. I maintained speed of 80-90 in ECO mode, AC on, no braking. It churned out 23.4 KMPL.
One sad thing happened 2 days back is that LHS front bumper has got some scratches and a hole.
Now, I have below options:
1. Replace the bumper and claim the insurance. I'll have to shell out Rs. 1000 for insurance claim and will have to forgo the NCB.
2. Replace the bumper from own pocket to retain the NCB. Body shop guy told that bumper costs Rs. 2000. Adding labor and paint cost, it will add up to approx. Rs. 3000, I think.
In either of the above two cases, I'll have to get the HSRP reinstalled. Any idea, how much will that cost?
3. Do not replace the bumper. Is this option feasible at all. I mean can these scratches and that hole be fixed without replacing the bumper with factory finish?
