Save your money and avoid a headache by avoiding European Auto Body, I went to have a new bumper installed and repainted after being rear ended. They ended up damaging the rubber seals around all the windows for some reason (looked like it got chewed up by a hungry dog lol), leather interior on the driver door got ripped and damaged (didn't even bother going back to argue just wanted to finish with the headache), one of the mechanics was putting on my set of winter tire/rims on and snapped one of the bolts inside and tried to hide it and argued it is 100% fine to drive off without and nothing would happen. Also my bumper wasn't even install on flush with the rest of the body of the car, had to have someone else install it again afterwards.

Just avoid them please.

I've been to European. Nothing but great experience.

Really went out of their way to help me out. Hats off to Manny, great guy.
