Rear Ended. Sacramento Area Shops?

So I was rear ended on thursday in sacramento,

anyway the body damage was not that bad, he hit me at about 15-20mph, I was stoped (due to heavy traffic at rush hour) and he was checking out a girl in a mustang (his own words).

anyway the body damage is just on the rear bumper, it would seem as it just needs to be raplaced (as it cracked)...

Here is where it gets tricky, the bottom part of my passenger side tail light (i believe this is an LED) went out too, and my car doesnt give me the "tail light malfunction" on the dash that it normally gives me when i need to replace a bulb (it gives no code or warning at all)... also my trunk has been popping open randomly ever since that...

anyone have any ideas as to why my car is acting all strange after the accident?? or know of any shops that would be able to figure out what is wrong with it in the area? the body damage is simple enough that any shop should be able to fix, but what if theres is an electrical problem?

my car is a 2007, 335i, coupe, 6 speed, sports package, idrive... (if it would make any difference)

thanks guys

Bertolucci's of course!

That's where mine is right now.

You'll prolly need a new bumper support/core, and if you have PDC those might need to be replaced, inspect tail light issue, etc.

Call his insurance; since you're not at fault there's no reason to make a claim on your own policy.


The females confuse me.

Did you ever figure out what the deal was with the tail light issue? I got hit on the right side of my rear bumper and it seems isolated to just the bumper but my left tail light intermittently is having issues. Only says "tail lamp malfunction" when the light isn't actually working but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Probably about every other day it's not working. I'm taking it for insurance inspection today so we'll see what they say but it's been working fine all day today which is annoying.

I would recommend TNT auto body off 51st. They've worked on some very nice cars and there's a brand new GTR in the shop right now being repaired. My E92 is there right now too. Tell them Steve sent you if you decide to go there.
