body shop Raleigh area

Looking for body shop recommendations. I know Performance in Chapel Hill has a OEM certified shop. I've also heard good things about Triangle Collision. What local shops have people been happy with?

I went to paragon after I was rear ended. Paint work is 100% spot on but some of the gaps in body panels are slightly off. Not sure anyone could have gotten it 100% perfect though.

I would definitely go back to paragon again they were super helpful.

That looks bad. Sorry!!

Someone hit my car the office parking last week and didn't leave a note. Pretty bad scratches and dent on the driver side. Ended up claiming my insurance.. now at the Performance Body Shop.

Yea it was a disaster. My convertible top had to be completely removed and repaired as well. Body shop had the car over 3 months and 10k in repairs.

But I think paragon did a great job. Sorry about your accident it amazes me how people try to get away with this stuff.

Looks like Paragon did an awesome job Blindside_137! I ended up going with Performance. Just now getting it in the shop. Will update w results once I get her back.

It's been a long road, but I got my ride back from Performance on Friday. I'm super impressed! Perfect paint, zero fitment issues!! Highly recommended!!

I'll also say that although they look horrible, I'm glad our composite panels tend to shatter when hit. I think in my case the damage would have been a lot worse.
