Reputable body shop in NOVA

Does anyone have a recommendation on a reputable body shop in Northern Virginia? The right front quarter panel on my '08 335xi doesn't seem to be "seated" correctly - the gap is not flush between the panel and the hood directly above the headlight. I'd like to get it looked at / repaired. Thanks.

D&V auto body in Sterling, VA. Little pricey but they get the job done right and perfect.

Bumping this thread, searching the forum for a good body/paint shop in NoVa to have my hood & front bumper repainted. No collision damage other than rock chips etc. Can anyone recommend one?

Manassas European Autobody, its my dads shop they have been in business over 15 years, and do almost all of Auto Advantage's BMW's and Sheehy Nissans among others for years now. They do great work no doubt!

Although there are other good body shops around, it really depends on that particular expirence. I have never heard one bad thing about D&V autobody. Aside from price they are #1 in this area. i have even seen a few articles on them. Supposedly Wagonworks is #2 And a bit more affordable. But if your anal about your paint and body work d&V should be your only stop

Thanks for the tip xzbit, I am pretty particular about my paint work. I'll give d&v, wagonworks and the other places mentioned in this thread a call and get some estimates. I don't want to spend too much.

Just a heads up, those two phrases shouldn't be used together with body work.

I thought Wagonwork was sold to Pohanka in 2010? I used to go to a BMW indy shop in Alexandria years ago, and they would take my car to WW for alignments, but I haven't been back in recent years.

Chantilly auto body. Can vouch for them, they fixed my bumper after a collision...Also, I think they are actually the body shop for Sterling BMW...so I've been told.

I've used Schebish Brothers for bumper fill and paint. They did a great job and at a very reasonable price. They are in manasses. https://www.facebook.com/SchebishBrothers Greg is the owner. It's a very low key shop, they do lots of different types of jobs.

D&V is hella overpriced. They wanted $1600 for fill and paint - absurd.

D&V

I had a great experience with D&V.

They did exactly what they said they would. Service was responsive, and the work was excellent.

Sterling BMW *was* using Royal Auto Body in Sterling which I would not recommend. I had to take the car back TWICE to get it done right. the owner is very arrogant as well.

Last I heard, BMW of Sterling was using D&V for some of their cars. Forget which one, but it was either service or sales department.

I would highly recommend D&V Autobody in Sterling,VA as well.
Just had my front bumper replaced due to an accident with the E90 M3 Rep Front Bumper. They also had to replace one of my headlights and quarter panel. The paint job and installation are perfect. I could not be happier. I do believe that they are expensive but great quality work. I know that Ferrari and Porsche guys use D&V as well. So does RRT.
