Default Looking for a good bodyshop in the North Dallas Area

I am going to try and remove the STi upper spoiler and have a body shop fill it in. I am new to the area and am looking for a GOOD shop to do this. Any recommendations?

To be exact I'm located in the Highland Park area.

The rest of my STi looks like a stock wrx and I want to get rid of the upper wing because I don't like it. Especially with the wrx trunk I'm running.

i heard stuarts is good

i have had extremely bad luck with body shops so:

stay away from plano collision and service king

plano collision finally just gave me my money back (after trying to match the paint 4 times, and causing other damage)

service king...I have yet to find one that after talking with them I felt confident leaving my car there

Ok, just got the Leg Wagon back tonight. Looks great. Stuarts did a great job. Used genuine subaru bumper and painted it really well. Matches perfectly. I recommend them!

Details is a good shop. Attention to detail like Stuarts but not so much the wait time. They're in Addison off Midway north of Beltline. They've done minor body work and paint on my previous Audi S4 as well as my current STi. Paint matches perfectly and they offer a lifetime warranty on their paint workmanship.

Yeah, that was the downside. Wife waited 2 weeks for a bumper. The guy told her that it wasnt that bad, some guys wait 6-8 weeks. I guess better to do it right then quickly and bad....
