Need recommended repairer in Sydney

Hi All

Had some a$$hole back inot my front bumper a few days ago, of course they left no note and i didn't see it happen.

Looks like a towbar from the height and size of the damage. Its has not split the plastic, so I wondering if it can be repaired without a new bumper, and can anyone recommend a repair shop in sydney (I'm near Hurstville) who will do a proper job on it?

Sorry to hear that, I'd recommend O'Brien at Caringbah, about 10-15mins drive from Hurstville. They are recommended BMW approved repairer. Ask for Tim!

Sorry to see that I am sure you are very upset about it. I'm not from your way but I hope you are able to get it fixed fast and cheap.

Sorry again mate

Sorry to see that. Maybe the Touch Up repair guys could patch it up for a cheap price. Google them.

Lee's Smash repairs did an excellent job of repainting my old 996T, and I have a bit of experience in restoring cars and their work was excellent.
