European Autobody in Etobicoke

Has anyone dealt with them for body work? How's their work?

They are very pricey. I ended up refinishing a rear bumper with them which they colour matched 100%, but had a slight run on the rear bumper which needed refinishing.

I didn't pay out of pocket (no fault insurance claim), which I am not sure had anything to do with it. I noticed it a week later when I washed the car, called them up and they said to bring it in to do again.

Had some out-of-pocket work done for my bumper. Flawless job, I would not go anywhere else regardless of discounts given at other shops.

These guys did the complete painting/install for my M-Tech kit I bought in the GB earlier this year.

100% matched the color and installation time was quick and flawless, would not hesitate to do business with them again! Top-notch work

Paint match and paint work was great. Install was only ok. They made no effort to make M3 rep sides fit any better, fit was decent (98%) out of the box, but I'd expect a high end body shop to do better.

Hey? You've seen my ride. It was done by a local body shop in Mississauga. He's honest and will take care of your ride. Let me know.

Garage List
I had them paint and install my Mtec body kit through a not-at-fault insurance claim. The paint work was flawless. Can't comment on them about price though. Can't imagine them being cheap as there were tons of Ferrari's and Maserati's in there getting work done. They are also Maranello BMW's go-to paint shop.

Thank you so much but I'm staying with Euro autobody.

Thanks everyone for your input. I am keeping my car at the shop.

Super expensive... tons of other body shops that do just as nice jobs as they do for less than half the price.... all personal preference though
