Body Shop Recommendations?

Can anyone recommend a good body shop in the Seattle/Tacoma area? I need to get my hood and fender repainted. I called a body shop that BMW Northwest recommended and they quoted me $1300... just for repainting. Jeez that seems very unreasonable.

BMW Seattle paid $500 to have my hood repainted on my previous car. So yeah, $1300 is very unreasonable. Unfortunately, I don't have any recommendations.

Mmmm... the body shop I went to fucked up my paint.. took like 3 tries to get a color match, and yet, I can still tell its not 100% But I guess its close to impossible to get it 100%.. The one that BMW NW recommended is good, it should be Paramount? Somewhere by the Tacoma Mall if I remember correctly, other than that, might want to try calling around :/

There's one in Lynnwood (collision 1 I think) that did a good job several years ago. I saw K.G. Jr.'s white Saleen there so that'll give them some credit I suppose. One at Northgate by the post office (collision 1 too?) is good too, though it's usually more expensive than other shops.
