Good body shop/Paint place in Cincy?

Hey guys,

During the recent storm of '08 some nice person pulled a hit and run on my bimmer as it was parked on the street in front of my house while I was out in Colorado skiing. Luckily, it is only paint and bumper scratches, so no rust issues to worry about, but one local place who the BMW store recommends want ~$860 to "refurb" my bumper. Basically repair and repaint the bumper. That seems like a crap load of money to sand and paint plastic.

I also inquired about the cost of painting and installing a new bumper (I was thinking about buying a preprimed M-tech bumper ~$475) and having them paint and install it. They said around $600 to paint and install the bumper which is also a crap load of $$. The vendor from California who sells the bumpers says that several local shops there do the paint and install for $200.

Any one have any suggestions on good, reasonable places I might check out?

A little late but did you ever find a paint shop in Cincy? I just picked up my 08 after the install/paint of the aero kit. Precision Frame and Body did mine. Great work! Ask for Roger the owner.
