Help!! Body Shop Recommendations in SF Bay Area

Can someone please recommend a excellent body shop in the San Francisco Bay Area?

I was considering Weatherford BMW (Berkeley), EMC (Fremont) and B-line (San Jose). Does anyone know anything about these shops or recommend a better one?

My brand new two month old 335i cpe just got scratched up and dented it by some idiot when the car was parked.

Thanks!

If you don't go through RJ's (which I recommend too) go through EMC in Fremont. Awesome guys, very professional, and willing to do whatever they can to get your car back to perfect. I took my car there after my accident and my car looks perfect. Ask for Homer and tell him Marvin with the Black 335i sent you.

+1 for RJ's, one of the only honest places that still does quality work

you will not find any other place that will take care of you prior, during, and post incident

tell him ZOEB sent you also, I've brought him like 10 of my own cars so he knows me pretty well

Forreal? My brother and his family has gone through EMC with their cars too. Maybe we did just get lucky?

Weatherford BMW Body Shop in downtown Oakland. Took both my E46 & E90 there when someone hit it. They do a majority or most of the BMW's in the bay area that need repair.

If the other person's insurance is paying for all the damage head there! Ask for Jim. He was able to get the other insurance of the person who hit me to pay for a brand new SSR rim, cuz the idiot "bent" the current one when he hit my car. (In other words, I got a rim for FREE!)

About 9 years ago, my new 330i hit a dog that jumped out of a pickup truck going the other way (120 mph impact). It damaged the underside and creased the left front fender.

The Works Auto Body in Santa Clara fixed it like new, and 9 years later, we cannot tell a difference in paint. They tend to work on exotic and newer luxury cars, and helped me out with dealing with insurance adjuster.
