Unhappy Sad day today for me - slightly crashed my E90 330i

I'm so upset with myself that words can not describe this. 100% my fault.
Guy with a pick up in front of me and me behind him waiting since we had
to give way to oncoming traffic. I see the road clearing and I see him move.
I check on the left and at the same time I move too. I turn around to look
and I'm moving while he's stopped and slightly rolling back. Didn't manage
to hit 0mph before him so I stopped at his back. Guy comes out "sorry but
it stalled on me" :mad: Bumper needs to be replaced and hopefully no more
but can't be sure until I take it in for an estimate to see the damage on the
inside

I have two options. BMW of SF which has an authorized body shop or B-Line
in San Jose. Anyone has any experience with either of them, suggestions
or perhaps an outstanding body shop they know of?

Any help appreciated

That sucks man. You shouldnt look at it as a loss though, look at it as an opportunity to mod.
Get an Mtech bumper or that M5 bumper.

Have you tried Shiro's auto body in campbell? THey're a friend of a friend so they might be able to hook you up.

Yeah I'll look into the Mtech front bumper assuming it can be done seperately
from the back one. I'm trying to find pictures to see how it looks. Now for
Shiro's auto body do you know how good they are? Thanks.
