    Where should I go to repair this ?.......

    Where do you think I should go to repair this kind of scratches : Should I go to the stealer, should I trust the local body/paint shop ? Can you recommend somebody in the Dallas area ?







    On a different note, I am coming back from a 1500 miles road trip (during which I managed to scratch my bumper f#ck, f$ck, [email protected] !!!!),
    I didn't have any problem with the car, the only thing is that on 2 different occasions I had to drive under very very heavy rain (with 2 passengers + luggages), this car felt so unsafe it really pisses me off, I mean this is the best handling car in it's category under dry conditions and under heavy rain it feels like you're driving a bathtube on 4 pieces of soap and that you're going to crash at the next turn...
    (I have only 8000 miles on my Michelin PS and 19' wheels)

    I am just venting, I love this car but it still pisses me off that I am so scared I am going to trash a $60,000 car each time I get caught under heavy rain !

    I have similar damage...

    I'm probably going to take mine to Concours over by John Roberts, though I've heard great things about German Technologies in Euless. My 540i got lightly hit 3 times in the first 3 months I had it, resulting in bumper repaints for the front and rear, and I took it to Classic BMW's own body shop. They did a perfect job and matched my Sterling Grey paint flawlessly (I was concerned about that), but it was $524 for each bumper. Fortunately I wasn't paying, but that's a lot for a repaint.

    GTI or Stuarts

    GTI is the best, Stuarts is a close 2nd. I can't recommend Concours since they are average and nothing more. I've used them 4 times over the years I lived in Dallas and all 3 times the outcome was OK but it took multiple return visits on each repair for them to get it right. I never got out of there on any single job without needing to bring the car back to them at least 3 more times and then deal with getting rides to and from or getting another rental car...just a real PITA IMHO to throw a few acronyms out there.
