There is K&W Autobody on Lemon Ave. in Diamond Bar. Right next to Walnut.
Ouch on the damage looks like that damage is easily ~1k+.

K&W are awesome and experienced. They will definitely do a good job but the down side is that they aren't cheap. They showed me around the whole shop and it is HUGE, they have 2 warehouses to keep the cars to do repair, and they keep the nice cars such as lambo, porsche, fairlady z, etc.. in the garage behind the office. The paint quality looked nice on the custom paints and seems like a lot of nice cars gets send there to be repaired. If you go, ask for Ken and I'm sure he'll show you around.

My mom and my car has both been repaired at 2020. Their facility are about the same size as my house (which isn't big at all) and when my car came back, the battery was completely drained (couldn't even start the car the first time) and battery low warning light came on. The people they hire would blast the music while working on your car and I saw that with my own eyes. Also, they were very rude when I asked about some broken tabs on my rear bumper even though I was just asking a question if they might've broke it, they instantly yelled at me for blaming they are unprofessional when they have done 'millions of BMWs'. Other than the service and incident with my battery, the work itself is decent and looks flawless as of this moment (6 mo.) However my mom nor I will go back to 2020 again.

ps. in my opinion, it would be just cheaper to find a replacement fender for e92, find a place to paint it and install it yourself (or you can have a shop near you install it). As far as bumper, I might know a bumper repair guy that can do it. and just leave the headlight as is.

I can't seem to figure out what's on your photo. Are you missing a chunk of metal from your fender?
