My car is almost ready.Will be taking delivery on wenesday.I am requesting ideas from all of you to solve my nagging but real inconvenience of not having a single bottle holder in the car.I am looking at custom modifying all door trims for providing the same.I am not finding any space to fix an external holder without making the look shabby..please suggest where how my intention can be achieved.Any shop whom you can recommend for getting my trim job.. done.

My suggestion is do not accessorise ur car any more. You can always keep the bottles in the seat pockets provided on the rear of both driver and passenger seats..

Thank god, that God saved you by other means.

What if it would have fallen when you were in car, that's why he saved you.

Car can be repaired but life?

Yes as an Automotive Enthusiast we can't see a scratch or dent on our cars.

But all happens which cannot be avoided.....

So continue more about FIR and the process you went with the insurance, Which company insurer are you with , and how did the process went on?

Oh that's so sad to see the car in that state! But thank god you were not inside when the tree fell! So how much was the total expenses in getting the car back to shape? I hope most parts were covered under insurance.

Hi,
During test drive there seems a problem in AC.So spares are ordered and i may have to wait again.Fiat service and particularly major repair we are their mercy.Looks like I may have to wait for another 10 days.Its really agonising..Total cost not clear yet but approx 1.25 lacs.25-35k from my hand & rest in insurance.

Great to see you car is coming back in action. How is the body alignment? check straight road driving and braking, weather its puling to side while braking and how straight its with hands off steering.
Check for rattles and wind noises.
Ac problem can be connection during refitting, have a through check and don't get into additional expense due their lack of competence.
If you were in mumbai i would have come along.
