Need advise.. just got hit on back bumper!

Hello,

I just got hit from behind, looks to only be the bumper. Is there anything I should look for besides the bumper replacement?

Can anyone recommend a good body shop in Houston, TX?? I was thinking on taking it to Momentum BMW, any thoughts???

Thanks!

Dunno bout Htown body shops... but the general rule of thumb is to keep away from stealerships, no?

Dude, that sucks. I know how you feel because it happened to me 2 weeks ago. I'm dropping my car off tomorrow at the body shop. I'll let you know how it goes before I made a recommendation.

Take it to M performance @ 17545 Kuykendahl Rd Ste A. The owner is David. The shop is new so the sign is not up yet, it is the one with the BMWs, Porsche, Lambo, Maserati and ferrari

I just picked up my car today and he did a very good job on my repairs. If you go, tell him the owner of the monaco blue 335 referred you.

Hit up one of the Austin guys ........ they've bring their cars down to Houston for different body panels to be painted. Can't remember the name of the shop but sounds solid.
