Mein Auto: 330XI
body shop in Maryland

hey guys. My brother banged into my driver side door while pulling his car out. Now my immaculately maintained 330XI has a small though ugly dent on the side. Can anyone recommend a bodyshop that does good work in the MD area (I live in Rockville) but wont fleece me.

thanks in advance.

I've had work done on several cars at Auto Body Craftsmen near 800 E. Gude Drive in Rockville, and they've done excellent paint match work. The latest job they did for me was for my wife's Buick Regal with $2500 damage - great paint work. There's another place right next door called "Zamora's", but I've never gone there myself. I got that name from a guy who had a new diamond white Maxima damaged a couple years ago -- it looked brand new when they were done. Good luck!

Another vote for Zamora's in Rockville. I had my wife's car fixed there, and several friends took theirs there and were very satisfied with the quality of the work.

Now that said, it may take time to get your car in, and sometimes they're so busy that they may overshoot their delivery date by one or two days. Didn't happen to me, but happened to a friend (but the repair was flawless, I could not tell her metallic grey Passat wagon had ever been hit, or painted).

Good luck,
