Body shop in Philadelphia area

My 6 month old, 5100 mile 325i was hit pretty hard from behind while merging into highway traffic. In the event that my insurance company does not total this car, can anyone offer any suggestions where I can ake the car for necessary repairs? Car was purchased at Otto's in West Chester.

Thank you in advance and Merry Christmas!

Dude, that sucks...hope your ok. Did it happen on 422? I noticed your from Limerick. Had bodywork done at Grand Sport Auto in West Chester years ago on my Mazda Mx-6, did a pretty good job.

As a matter of fact it did happen on 422 while merging westbound at the Armand Hammer Blvd entrance. Sounds like you know the area. Yes, I am fine, thanks for asking. I will certainly look into Grand Sport Auto.

...from Pottstown, know the area pretty well. Have you considered Otto's at all? Or, are you steering away from the 'stealer'? Hope you get it fixed soon. See you on the road soon...good luck.

The place on 202 between ottos and the PA/DE border looks pretty good. Cavalis. Always has high end cars being repaired there.

hope you're okay. shame to see that happen.

when my dad pegged a deer in his e39, he took it to bavarian motorsport in kennett square. they did a nice job, the car looks flawless. of course the damage wasn't as extensive.

Sorry about your accident.

For over 25 years I have had all my body work done at Richmonds Automotive in Newark, DE - 302-453-1173. They specializes in BMW, Mercedes, Porsche and Ferrari. They do outstanding quality work. Doug Richmond is an artist.
Good luck with your repair.

The update is the the car was declared a total loss by the insurance company, which I thought was good news. The replacement is a TiAG 2007 328xi. Thanks for everyone's warm wishes.
