    Hi

    Can anyone recommend me to a good bodyshop repairs for my bmw x3 in around london and essex. Recently someone scratched and dented my rear wing and back bumper. As usual my insurance is offering all rubbish body repairs garage and i've been told to pay for my excess if i want to repair at a bmw approved workshop.

    Also has anyone used Acton Coachworks in London

    Any advise is much appreciated.

    I've booked my car (to have the rear arches done) in with Dips at Custom Cars. He's based near Heathrow.

    A lot of guys on here use him. I can PM contact details to you if you want?

    Zahir,

    I've recently used a place in Walthamstow to have a bumper scuff put right and a mate has had his M3 sorted both jobs were top quality and as your in Ilford it's not too far pop down for a quote:

    Hey,

    If your going through insurance, I wouldnt think twice but to take it down to BMW instead of these back street garages. At least original parts will be used, as non genuine parts dont always fit right.

    We had a 335d Coupe with a hard front end repaired from a independenet, fantastic job cosmetically but his boys weren't up to scratch when it came to the mechanical side.
