    Bodywork and respray?

    My 92 E30 Vert was hit by a backhoe this week I was planning on getting it resrayed a differant color this winter. So now it needs bodywork and with pending respray are there any shops out there that will work with me in getting the whole care resprayed and the dent not to cost a fortune?

    I know a shop that will work with you etc. Problem is the cost. Best bodyshop in the area is Wagonwerk and their prices reflect the quality of their work. They work for you adn not in cohoots with the insurance company.

    Stop by Edison High School on Franconia and see what kind of deal they can work for you. Usually it is just material cost and if you are not pressed for time
    it maybe your best option.

    Edison is on Franconia Rd about 3miles or so east of Springfield Mall. Edision and Wt Woodson have auto body programs in Fairfax County.

    I recommend Springfield Auto Body. They sponsor my racecar and they love working on BMWs. Call Jim Scott (Owner) or Jim Amery (Shop Manager) there at (703) 569-5055 and tell them I referred you. They'll take very good care of you. Several people from this forum have used them and everyone's been very please.

    Well, if quality matters to you, you'll be real happy with their work.
    Several NCC members have used them and they were all VERY pleased.

    Yes, they are the shop I will be using. I got my check toady from the landscaper company. I will be doing a total color change from Laguna Green to a Pretty BMW blue.

    There is a very nice 92 318iC in the color here on Post. It will look very much like that car.

    Body Shop

    I have to recommend First Choice AutoBody in Arlington off of Route 1. They did excellent work on the front end of my E46 M3!!!

    Ask for Ray Moxley 703.836.6920.
