Reliable body shops in Northern VA (front bumper replacement)?

I'm trying to get my front bumper replaced with M-replica bumper. Need it painted as well. Can anyone recommend some good shops?

Not to thread jack....but anyone know how much it costs to paint the mtech rear bumper? My uncle owns a body shop in sterling, but wanted to know what price anyone has paid in the past.

Painting a new/primed bumper shouldn't be more than $300

I'm not saying a shop will charge $300, but that's what is should cost. Labor on everything in NoVA seems to be overpriced.

I think you're going to be hard pressed to find a quality paint job for that price.

actually there is i guy that does great quality work in manassas, he just did my mtech skirts and job is flawless. i plan on having him re-do my front bumper and future job when i get rear bumper. I knew of his shop for a while, and quality is what you will get. pm me and i'll send his number to you. this is a small shop that does great work, its not like one of those "factoty style body shops" that do half ass jobs to move to the next thing.

i wish my painter should still do side jobs - he would charge only like $100 max for a bumper and do a professional job in the paint booth - you should pay more than a few hundred for a good job with good paint and clear coat.

I got quality bumper resprays in NJ for $250 on the reg almost every show season. Like I said, everything has a NoVA tax here.

I like Autobody of Vienna. I've had good luck with them and they're highly rated in Checkbook magazine.
