Need HELP with a GOOD, Well priced body shop

Bumped into a brick in my garage at 1-2mph and punched a hole right through my front bumper. (Cant believe how thin the plastic is) Anyway went to a body shop and they want $1500 to fix it and got the normal, "this is a BMW and takes lots of time to fix"

Anyway figured there are a bunch of you who could recommend a good shop with fair pricing...Thanks in advance!!

the other option is going down the replacement bumper way, any recommendations on who makes a really good after market bumper??? (maybe thinking of going the M3 style bumper)..

If you have a hole in the bumper, I would've thought the body shop will replace the fromt bumper? $1500 seems like the price for a bumper replacement plus paint and labour...

better off replacing bumper, add 300 for paint and you can probably pick up a used bumper if u want to save some cash

+1. They did some major repairs on a family member's car a few years back and the quality was excellent.
