Body shop for bumper (paint) repair in Chicago

So, my 2011 5-series has finally succumbed to the ravages of city living and needs to have bumper dings/scratches fixed up. Too bad they can't seem to come up with a technology to make these things a bit more impervious to minor damage.

Can anyone recommend a good (and rea$onable) place in Chicago (proper) for this?

You might want to find someone up in Andersonville. However I have been very happy with west loop auto body. I now live in west town.

Their service is horsesh*t, and the people suck really bad, but workmanship is the best I've had at Gold Coast Auto Body.

In the unfortunate circumstance I need bodywork in the future, I will go to them without a doubt for the quality of repair. I do know, however, that I will have to micro-manage them to get it done.

We've been taking all our cars to Guy and Sons for years. On Van Buren just east of Racine. Never had a problem and when they did an insurance repair on my crumpled Volvo Itook it to my dealer for a post-repair inspection and they said everything had been done to factory specs. Really nice people to work with.
