Great body shop (for paint) So Cal

I just ordered the Kirscher front bumper for my E90 330i and would like some opinion on body shops in So Cal that can do a great job painting it....matching the paint.

BTW, my car's color is Saphire Black.

Thanks!

Talk to Vu. Tell him Miguel from E90post recommended you.

Expo Auto Body
4535 Baldwin Ave
El Monte, CA 91731-1107
6262791900

They painted my Mtech rear and my DTM M-style front---perfect match to black sapphire! They are average in price...but quality is awesome! (some other LA body shops are cheaper in price...but paint can be soft and chip easy!)

I worked out a deal based on the parts being painted.

It all depends on size of the part you want painted...and the quality of the item. (do they have to do alot of prep work??)

Anyways...rough estimate for a generic bumper that is ready for paint (like the Mtech rear out of the box) would likely run $300-$350. But you need to talk to Vu to get an exact price on the piece you are looking to get painted. Lips and smaller pieces would likely be less. Fiberglass that needs to be worked on...might be slightly more based on size of the item of course.

Nevertheless...their work is top notch! Give them a ring and tell them what you are looking to get done.

spectrum collision in irvine, ca. they are the only BMW approved body shop in the country and only use OEM BMW paint... they aren't cheap... but they are the best. talk to Rob DeJong. for a cheaper route but still SUPERB quality, and the best custom body workers i have ever seen in my life.... Wet Works Garage in Costa Mesa, CA. DIRT cheap too....talk to Joe.
