BodyShop Rec to install m3 front bumper in Dallas?

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this, but I am having the JLEVI M3 replica front bumper for my e92 335i delivered today.

Can anyone recommend a good place to take this to? So far, a friend from work has recommended 'Details' in Addison. Any others?

I have a blue 335i coupe and can't wait to get this on! Hoping it will add a more agressive look.

I just got mine in from JLeviSW a few days ago. I'm going to get it painted at Service King in Fort Worth and then put it on myself. I'll post some pics here when I get it back next week. Let you know how it turns out.

Thanks man. I'll let you know how mine turns out as well.

Fort Worth is kinda far for me so I think I will take it to a local place here.

I've got a guy at the David McDavid Acura bodyshop in Plano. The facility is big money and they do fantastic work. I'm not entirely sure they can install it but they will take care of you on paint. Send me a PM if you'd like his info.

Installed Pics

I finally installed the M3 bumper...here are some pics.

I opted not to install the fog lights. You can still see the circles in the grill, but that doesn't bother me as much as others. However, if JLevi decides to sell the grill without the hole, I'll be the first to grab it!

Next up will be the M3 skirts, black grills and window trim, and 19 inch gunmetal wheels.

My friend and I installed the bumper, however, we had some clearance issues with the air ducts. I was surprised that no one else had this issue. We removed the ducts and it fit just fine. I have an 07 if the year matters.

It's a known fact that the ducts need to be trimmed. Gotta say not a fan of the holes with no fog lights. Looks weird to me...

I may just take the side grills out completely, and see what that looks like.

I'm getting mine from **********s, but all the vendors are selling the same thing. I'm going to be taking mine to a friend of mine for paint.
