Suggestion for Body shop in Chicago, Northern Suburbs.

Anyone can give a suggestion for a good body shop in northern chicago? I got into a minor accident today which left two screw-size holes on my bumper. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=266240

Preferably a shop who can mold my aero lip and reflector to the existing bumper.

-mtech cf front splitters (painted)
-helix fmic
-mtech sides (just b/c of the paint already being done..0 damage tho to stockers)
-vk dp
-same jet black painted outer ring front kidneys
-maybe rpi red scoops? (opinions?)
-gloss black window trim overlay
-and for you guys that would get this..stage 3 proceeeeeede

I'll be honest... there are only like 5 people in the country with the red ones... RPi found out about the "impersonating police" bullshit with the red ones and began mass producing them in black.

do they even still offer them in Red? If they do it's probably overstock from what they originally made.

I can get them in red, not sure if its overstock or not...

not sure though I guess, I feel that they dont provide any benefit, so why waste 100 spot

then don't bother, the isn't going to be any airflow gain since you are still sucking air out of the engine bay and not straight from the grilles to the engine. the point of the scoops is to force more air into the intake straight into the engine. with a dci, you're still just going to be drawing in hot air from the engine bay, whether you have scoops or not.
