body shop

  1. NY / NJ / CT
    I got sideswiped in one of the recent snow storms and need to get some feedback on bodyshops my insurance company is recommending. I prefer to go to one of my own choosing closer to home, but here are the ones Allstate recommended, at least for the inspection piece: PRESTIGE AUTO BODY 34 W...

    Ok, "build thread" is a misleading headline. I'm not really building it, but I wanna share with everyone what I am doing (and what I want to do). Should you choose to follow along, you can. My first 24 hours have been interesting. Bought it from a dealership in OC and didn't get home to LA...

    I'd like to clean up my E90 - it's got a bit scuffed over the years - dings on the edge of doors, a small bumper scuff from a garage, whirls from car washes, a few scraped rims. Has anyone had a good experience doing this with a Seattle-area body shop? This obviously isn't an insurance claim...

    Read bumper damage any way to tell needs a new rebar without taking the bumper off?

    I'm looking for a trustful repair shop in the Bay Area that I could go to regularly. However I don't really know what to look for and how to know if they are trustful or not. Looking at Yelp reviews most repair shops have good reviews but then there are these few guys who explain (sometimes...

    Hi, This is my first post. Someone just ran a stop sign and hit my 335i as I drove in a parking garage. Most of the obvious damage is to the driver's side front bumper and quarter-panel, but who knows what lurks below the hood. I have used Wagonwork in Alexandria, VA years ago and had a...

    Hey all. I bought my 2004 alpine white 325i about 2 months ago. I have done a couple body mods. Wheels and tires and carbon fiber emblem. Im of course trying to save money but would like something to save up for. I was looking to get a better sound out of my exhaust without having to get all new...

    Came out to the car to find a dent on the rear quarter panel and some scratches...and of course no note. Sick to my stomach (the car doesn't even have 5k miles on it!) but looks like no recourse but to take it to a body shop. I was thinking it would be best to take it to either a dealership or...
  9. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I posted a while back on this forum about how I dinged my driver's side door within the first week of getting my new X3 - awesome. I've been going around LA, reading reviews on Yelp!, getting estimates, speaking with insurance... it's truly been a saga. I'm at the point now where I am going to...

    Hi - My nameis Manu and I am new in CLT, NC. I picked up a CPO 2006 330i recently. Red colour. I have minor scrattes - 4-5 lines, and a nail head sized dent/ding on the passenger door. The scratches extends to drivers door from passenger door and is about 1.5 foot each. Only the top latyer of...

    I have had a minor accident and need to get some bodywork done on my 1998 328i: door, rim, trunk side etc. Can anyone recommend a quality but not overly expensive shop in the Herndon, VA area? Many thanks!
