    Recommendations for auto detail in Austin

    I was thinking of getting my car detailed, any recommendations for a good place in Austin. Also would appreciate some recomendations on where to get the bumpers repainted and some dings taken out.

    Dings in Fort Worth or Lubbock

    I need a recommendation for something similar - I need a good paintless dent repair place in either Fort Worth or Lubbock.

    Moritz recommends Ding Empire at the corner of Front and Elm St in Arlington.

    183N, next to Krispy Kreme

    I forget their name, but right next to this Krispy Kreme on 183N close to Spicewood spring exit. Have a donut and some coffee, watch them work their magic.

    Ditto times 4... They do awesome work...

    Both bumpers on the M5 (parking lot idiots), front bumper on the Z3 (dead animal in road), and some hood and trunk touchup on the Z3(vandals stealing cheap roundels).

    All done at Berli's, all PERFECT.

    Thanks will go get an estimate. The front of my M Coupe looks like it has been sand blasted and someone keyed my rear bumper.

    Ryan at Stuarts is awesome...

    He's a subcontractor for Stuarts Paint and Body in Dallas, don't know the name of his company. He took hundreds of hail dings out of my truck (including the difficult aluminum hood) and it's perfect. I highly recommend him. He had to drop the headliner, hood liner, and many interior panels to do my truck and he did a great job on getting everything put back together correctly (I think this is what most PDR guys are really bad at).

    Let me know how much the front is?

    I have considered getting the front replaced and shot for the same reason as you..._________________

    FYI, my front bumper was ~$500 for paint only

    That's on top of the ~$500 for the bumper cover itself. (Had to be replaced since it was cracked where it got punched by some a-hole's receiver hitch.

    If I remember correctly, sanding, filling, prepping, and painting the rear bumper was about $800 when a drunk a-hole tapped it putting two license-plate-screw-shaped bumps in it.

    Their color match has been absolutely perfect. Only downside has been no waxing for a few months while it cures. Dunno why they don't have an oven?

    Re: Dings in Fort Worth or Lubbock

    Xtreme PDR...John Roberts BMW use them. I had them remove approx 30 dings and dents from my 95 530i. They car looks great. Contact Ryan at 972-754-0206. His shop is in McKinney but I think they do work there at John Roberts.
