    Default First dent on my 2009 City!

    Last night while returning home, all of a sudden an unmanned police check post without reflectors appeared that prompted me to take evasive action and, as a consequence, hit the pavement to my right. I was in 3rd gear and the speed was around 40. The damage is not much, that's why I've decided not to go for repairs as it would further devalue its resale. It could have been much worse. Seriously, the authorities should stop playing with the lives of the commuters by installing reflectors on check posts. The rest of the car is ultra clean with less than 10,000 kms on the dial. Even though the dent is small it still looks hideous.

    @dms664 Damn! I feel sorry for both the City and Corolla owners. All their hard earned money gone to waste. Yes, as human beings, we are always ungrateful to our Lord S.W.T. We should be thankful for the Blessing that HE (S.W.T) has bestowed upon us.

    @hash4u Yes I have been having sleepless nights. Had the color been gun metallic or black, the dent would not have been so prominent. Oh well, let's see what the future holds for this City. Nice tale about the Brothers messing up the City. Could you please tell me the address of the workshop they took the City to? I might get lucky, Inshallah!

    All this had no effect on my car's resale value...as its already been sold...it was just damage to the skirt (like on your car) and not to the body.

    A simple ADD ON simply ask any qualified repairer even Honda,every one has to remove inner carpet,plastic trims and then to cut this sill board then to melt and re weld and then to paint,so hopefully you might not be willing to proceed,secondly no one including Honda or Vebra are going to quote less than 10k for this job.

    @tayyabbaig Thanks for the spiritual advice and Vebra's address

    @razapower Good idea worth considering. Where can I buy aftermarket side skirts and what will be their cost?

    @krazyboy Yes. I keep cars for longer periods that's why I'm a bit over cautious

    @formula2012 Many thanks for the compliments. Well my dad also asked me to leave it as it is. But then, this small mole of a dent is an eyesore lol.

    @BilalAhmedSiddiqui If I were given a choice other than white, I would chose Polished Metal (Gun Metallic) colour or black provided you use a high quality polish. It looks awesome in it.
