Recommendation for AutoBody/Paint shops

I am west of Boston and might need an aero lip painted AND the chrome trim around my window...

1. anyone have an idea what something like this would cost?

2. anyone have any shop recommendations that have done a good job in the past?

Thanks!

Sansossio Auto Body in Natick. Everyone on YuppieRacing goes to Phil Jr. He did my M-Sport bumpers and does awesome work

I use to use Allston collision center in Allston, but there turn-arounds are unreasonable in my opinion. Now i use Mikes autobody in Malden, i know many people on the fourm have used him as well, he works on many german makes and restores old porsches. His prices are very reasonable

This!!

Mike is awesome he did the work on my car and stands by what he does. Just went to him again for my Dads 535i M5 kit and color match was perfect. Not to mention he used to do all turners cars and races.

I would say he is competitive. I would rather pay a little higher knowing it's going to come out perfect and honestly his prices are good.

Big thumbs up for Sansossio. I used them based on a recommendation I read on here and had a great experience.
