Probably Midtown now? Pauls Auto was good but no longer there. Midtown does all the work for Continental if I recall. Though I've been told some stories from dissatisfied customers, however, mostly good reviews.

My fault :<. I knew I saw it before, though I haven't been here in a grip so I could not remember. Though thanks for the helpful locations

Pauls auto body is excellent. They are not gone, but they have relocated and are still on the same street, just moved to a larger spot. If at all possible go there. They have done some excellent body repair. I've been on and off with their painting ( they do not colour match very well sometimes ) but for the most part their repair work keeps people coming back

Reason why I pumped Markel's is because they do body repair for Mercedes Benz as well as BMW I think. You'll pay more for it, but everything will be done perfect.

Haha, it would look a ton better with duct tape if I can fix the bottom portion of it. Though I would want it fixed soon so I can do some outside work.

Edit : Once again, thank you for everyone's input and sorry I didn't read that first link before I posted.

I thought you and me just talked on how it's not the same with this new staff of theirs. Jarred(if I recall?) being gone leaves me in distrust imo.

Not that. I used to get a discount because Gerald knew me. So I could get people like you in discounted. Now that he's not there I just don't get a price break. Same good service though.
