Body repair in seattle

Hi guys, first of all, sorry for posting here since it is for e90-93 post. However, i can get some answer from people here who live around seattle. Have you guys ever hea about body repair named Maaco? Is that good? I saw some post from members in this forum said that kent collision is also good. What do you guys recommend? Either i changed my front bumper to m-tech or keep my old one and fix it? I have been to maaco and they gave me a really good prce and acceptable to my student pocket

Maaco can be ok for simple bodywork...but you do get what you pay for...so it's not the best, but will work if you are on a budget. Just check out the reviews for each shop, I know the one in Bellevue I have used...and felt fine with the results.

I wouldn't touch Macco for work on any car, let alone a BMW....

My opinion only. But as the previous poster said, you absolutely get what you pay for when it comes to body work....

Yeahhh, i am thinking about kent collision too, since many people recommend me to go there for the good work. I am just curious about the estimation of the repair, i need to know either i change my old one to the mtech or keep the old one and get it fixed.

I have heard about them too.however, when i checked it on Yelp, they dont give any good review. So I will consider to check it first and ask my friend who has repaired there.

Haury's is one of the best body shops in the Seattle area. I've taken all my cars there, and never had an issue. Even if I did, the owner would be quick to fix any of the issues.

The best shop I know of for high-end cars is R'N'R on 130th in Bellevue just off Bel-Red. Before the BMW/Porsche/Mercedes dealerships had body shops that's where they sent customers. rnrauto.com

Barrier used Queen City before they opened their own in-house shop.

1. Bellevue Auto Rebuild: Look for Jon Stewart

2. Bel-Kirk Body Shop: Look for Bob or Taylor

are you sure? hmm what I want is that the owner wants to fix any of the issues quickly if I am not satisfied or anything else. I am so not satisfied with M***o's work, i do not want to explain it here but if you want to know, you can PM me

Got works done at both shop. Bellevue seems to be better, but expensive. Bel-Kirk can never beat their cash deal and ppl there are extremely nice. Mention Johnny Lin, they will both hook you up.
