Need a bodyshop in fl. lauderdale/ west palm area

Hi guys,

Last weekend driving I-95 north I hit some sort of bumper that the car in front of me hit and bounced to my 335i i was able only to hit the passenger side front bumper (fog light heavily scratched). I got a clear bra so the hit was not as bad, but it created a small bump-small hole on my bumper. I am only 2 weeks from returning my car to the dealer.

The clear bra seem to have taken most of the impact, if it wasn't because of the bump/ small hole i'd just remove the clear bra and return the car. I need to find a decent place for my bumper to be either replace or fixed. Can anybody recommend a body shop in the fl. lauderdale / west palm area

Thanks...

p.s. i'll try to post some pics of the bumper

Do you have to pay out of pocket for it? If yes, let the dealer charge you 300-400 as excess wear on turn in. Will probably be cheaper.

i will have to pay out of pocket, my deductible is 250. I am returning my car bc i am my dealer is going to give me a buyback due some issues with the car and I will be doing euro delivery next month.
so you suggest me to take it to the dealer and see what they'll charge me?
Maybe i could negociate something since the this car is a buyback!

I thought it was a lease.

When my old lease ended I had a ton of bumper damaged. I was charged 400 to fix everything.

I would ask the dealership and see what they say. Can't hurt.

I tend to fear insurance claims being a young male. I expect any payout by them to increase my rates for the next 7 years. This is probably an incorrect fear.
