Got rear ended this weekend

I was stopped at a red light when this mid 20s girl just plowed right into me. She apologies and admitted her fault (not sure how she could have missed me since the light was red for a while).

Anyways, I'm looking to replace my rear bumper (E92). Does anyone know or can recommend a good body shop near Sherman Oaks / Westside area? Its important to me that the work gets done right (no cutting corners) since the car is purchased and not leased.

Thanks

Saaaame ! Go to Legacy Auto Body in Reseda. My car is there right now because I just got rear ended. They do great work, I took my car there when I was doing an LCI conversion. Their paint job is spot on. They actually fully restored my friends e92 335i.

Thanks - will check them out.

Has anyone heard of Pride Auto Body in Van Nuys? This is the shop recommended by the dealer.

Any damage to the girl? Otherwise the girl would probably feel a little uncomfortable. Or you could have said let's work something out.
