my car keyed...

So my car had been recently vandalized and keyed from my driver side panel to bumper. Actually happened a while ago but now I'm just fed up every time I look at it. Just placed a claim with my insurance so now its time to shop around. I'm located in Fremont bay area and wanted to ask for any awesome paint shops you guys know near my location. All replies welcome thanks!

If you are willing to drive to gilroy, Hogue Brothers does an awesome job if you call ask for Laura. 408-868-5103. My girl got her e90 fixed there.

Or Acura Collision Center in Los Gatos.

Is it the rear bumper? Go to RPA Body Work in San Jose of Almaden Expressway, the owner's name is Hugo. Get some custom work while you're at it. He redid the whole rear bumper with vents for $400 painted. If it just needs repaint, probably $200 or less. Cool dude, he'll hook up pricing. He's doing custom work on my hood, bumper for my LCI conversion. Here's what he's done to another local. Tell him Jason referred you so I can get a cheaper bill too haha. The more referrals the lesser the payment.

IMO, the absolute worst place you could take it would be LT! Even tho your in the bay area and it wouldn't matter because you wouldn't drive down to SoCal and especially not for a 'you don't know what you'll end up with kind of paint job.' Lol.
I'm sure others will agree or disagree but LT no longer has any sense of ownership over there work unless you throw money at them blindly!

Agreed 100% (from first hand experience) and know several others that would agree.

I am shockeddd at their quality control. 👎

I recently changed my deductible from $500 to $250, and it only cost me like $2 more a month. Score.

I had my whole front end redone and the paint match was 100% from LTMW. I've seen them repaint a bunch of things and colors come out right! I know one guy that brought in a pearl white and LTMW repainted the part until it was 100% even though the costumer didn't complain about it.

Im sure some people they give 100% but its hit or miss with others.

You get what you pay for. LT will beat most shops prices however with that lower price comes with the gamble of quality work you're going to get.
