Absolutely...the best in the business. BTW...it is Oceanside Road, not Long Beach Road. They are meticulous and true professionals.

Mid Island Collision in Rockville Centre does great work.
My friend and I both go there. They do a lot of work for Mercedes which the service center is right across the street.

AMX in Hicksville, NY

They rebuilt a Mazda 626 from the firewall forward and it was better than from the factory when it was new.

Amazing work, and all they're work is lifetime guranteed! Plus they are a DRP shop, and work very closely w the insurance companies to make sure the customer is completely satisfied.

Any other suggestions guys? Island Auto Body is right down the road. Barron Body Works messed up my paint job (there are sanding scratches underneath the paint) and the paint match looks 95% under overcast skies but under sunlight it looks maybe 60%...I had the work done last April, and didn't take it back for a redo...my father wasn't there with me to evaluate the poor job and I figured it was in my best interest to leave it alone, I didn't want to regret sending it back in..maybe it was a poor decision but it could of turned into a nightmare if they fixed one problem and created another one. The place was reccomended to me on a forum and it was brand new, state of the art....included all types of technical certifications and the best equipment. The guy seemed genuine and we took a shot - we missed.

I guess I am frustrated with the body shops here on Long Island....shoddy works runs rampant, so if there is ever a next time (*knock on wood there isn't*) I want to know a top-of-the-line place. Not only that but my cousin is looking for a place right now...I might suggest Island Auto Body, because I would never reccomend a place that does cheap work.

Like I said Normans in Great Neck, I walked over to look at a blue maybach, turns out it is Jay Z's, hmm guess if they are good enought for his Maybach they probably could do a decent job on your 3
