    Default Hit & Run: Now need a body shop

    Well for Christmas I got some nice damage to my car. I was parked in front of my parents for Christmas on the street and came out to it. Well called insurance and they informed me I would not be at fault but would need to pay the deductible. The fender has a nice scratch and paint gone and they scratched my rear drivers side door.

    Anyone have recommendations for a good body shop? I have a metallic white of course and want to ensure it looks good when I get it back. From what I have been reading the below are well reviewed but some reviews are over 5-10 years old.

    Thanks T

    I've used Martino Brothers (Dixon Road and 401) and would recommend them.

    I had a 04 M3 that needed some body work (typical M3 rust) and they matched the grey metallic paint perfectly.

    I strongly recommend Kevin at Paintforce. He runs his business himself and will even come to your driveway to do the work. Has always done fantastic work on our cars for a fraction of what body shops charge. His number is (416) 627-3948

    I vote for 427 auto collision. All the work they've done on mine and family cars (4 different times) have been spectacular.

    Other shops, often an issue of cutting corners. Wrong clearcoat, poor blending, incorrect shade, overspray, or dust settling on fresh paint.

    A good body shop needs to have proper isolated rooms for painting and drying.
