I am having a hard time finding reviews of just about any body shop near Buffalo. It is really hard to know who to trust with my car. I found many threads asking about body shops in WNY over on nyspeed, but none of them end with who the OP ended up taking their car to and how it ended up.
Did you see my post in the other tread you made?

Thats my opinion, I have not been over to the new shop yet, I think they moved across the street in the plaza actually.

If you have rental car or another vehicle these guys are good too http://www.hoffmanautomotive.net/
We have had cars in our family done there and the paint has been really good. One warning, they are not the fastest turn around hence the need for another car/rental car.

Thanks Jeller.

After reading more negative comments about Autobahn Body Werks on nyspeed I have pretty much scratched them off of my list.

The body shops I am thinking about now are Hoffman which you mentioned, Gerstner Collision on Main near transit, and Bank Street in Orchard Park. Anyone have any experience with either of them?

I was hoping there would be more recommendations by now.
Sent you a PM about Bank Street!

Yes, I saw your post and thank you for your recommendation. I will have to look into Reagan's Stock and Custom a little more before deciding. Do you know if they deal with European cars much?

Thanks for your PM about your experience with Bank St.

At this point I am leaning towards Hoffman Automotive on Elm St in Buffalo. So far I have yet to find a negative comment about them. At the same time however, I am mostly finding threads on various forums where people recommend places. Then the OP never comes back and posts where they ended up taking their car to and the results.

Also any NYspeed users on here? I registered over there, but I can't seem to post or start a thread and was wondering what i needed to do. I was going to start a thread over there to try to reach a larger WNY user base.

Thanks Jeller. I figured you're the Jeller over on NYspeed also. I still can't post or PM or anything over there, but I am in a little less of a hurry now.

As per your suggestion, and after reading about them on NYspeed and
"dubsinthebuff", I had the car towed to Hoffman yesterday evening.

I met with Jeff there today and he put my mind at ease a little bit. He seems like a stand up guy. There was also an X5 over there that they were doing bodywork on. So at least I know they have dealt with newer bimmers before.

I just washed my car to get rid of those disturbing salt and stuff
And when I stopped at a gas station to fill up, I found a dent on both my rear doors!
This is so frustrating when you have no clue how and when that happened

The new 6's are really nice, I totally agree.

I have a close friend with a stg 2 B8 S4, its a really nice daily, not as fast as the 335 in a straight line thus far, but its a really nice all around daily.

winter beast for sale

anyone looking for a winter beast? i'm looking to sell. it's been really good to me in the relatively short time i've owned it. wife has a CRV to throw our dogs in when needed, so no real need for it.
