Unhappy Repair dents and paint

I got quoted HK$6,000 to repair for the following damage at Amazing Touch in HK.

Is that reasonable?

i think $6k is expensive...though the scratch involves at least 2 pieces. a few yrs back i got my honda fixed at a price of $2-3k for a similar scratch. maybe the charge for bmw is higher?
i won't hesitate to recommend the service of amazing touch, they fixed my rear bumper and a minor scratch at the front bumper nicely at a price of $1k, though it doesn't involve any metal work. and the best part of it is u can get the car back in the same day. but seriously 6k is a bit too much IMO

from the photo i can see there are 3 parts involved,
front bumper - scratches, re-painting the whole part, hk$1800~2000 max
rear fender - deformed metal and re-painting, hk$2000~3000 max
rear door - deformed metal? can't see clearly from the picture but just re-painting will cost you hk$1200 already

$2000+$3000+$1200 = hk$6200, then 20% discount if you are doing it at 1 shop, hk$5000 would be reasonable imo

the wheel - seems like no painting at all, so just polishing touch up, ask them do it for free

sorry to revive an old thread, but uh, any recommendation for a body shop?

Here's the story: driving from tsing yi to Hong Kong (East tunnel), going around 90-100.

Was following this taxi, and suddenly, its license plate falls off, and bam, it hits my bumper with me going at 100 km. Now the bumper is not dented, but a lot of paint has been chipped off. Needless to say, I couldnt get the license plate of the taxi since.. well it fell off.

It also went off at TST. So guys, please recommend a bodyshop.

Was quoted 2000 for a bit of paint chip, which I thought was a bit much...

thoughts?

Any photos to see how serious it was? I'm the ex-owner of that silver e90.
FWIW, I had it fixed for less than 2k... dent fix + repaint.

Came to this post to look for a good and reasonable repair shop in Kowloon area... got into a minor traffic incident the other day where a careless driver behind me rear ended my E90 and left a very minor scratch on my bumper.

Still want it fixed though although it is not too conspicuous!

Any info appreciated! cheers

reviving the thread,

Had my 4dr 2007 E90 two days and the Valet at a restaurant has scratched the front bumper, can't prove it was him but need to get it fixed as its really noticeable on the Black paint.

can I get a few suggestions please?


also, I will be looking to upgrade loads of parts so feel free to spam my inbox with parts for sale, wheels, bumpers, spoilers etc....
