Good body shop in Chicago

Folks,

I need a good body shop or an independent painter that can help me out. I just came back from the BMW dealer and they are asking for $1300.00 and 4 days to keep my car for this little damage on the clear coat:

Without flash:


With flash:


They are saying they need to take the two passenger doors out, sand them down and paint both doors. I am REALLY not liking this...

Any suggestions?

Johan,

That would be awesome. I am not stingy when it comes to quality work, but the back home in Bulgaria, for $1300.00, I can get 5 cars painted by a private painter and probably get a blowjob from the painter's daughter. LOL
