Default Hit from behind! Need shop and murder weapon

So exiting a parking lot I see the car behind me NOT stopping, so I hit the gas but too late. I need a shop to take it too that is reasonably priced, but also good quality. Anyone?

Here's pics

Let me guess, some soccer mom talking on the cell phone while driving an SUV hit you? :monkey: That sux0rs dude. Try taking your car to MOB Works, they do some really good bodywork and will have your ride looking better than before. Good luck!

It's hard to tell from the pix, but those are groves about a mm deep. I'm hoping we're talk just a wet sanding and touch up. Anyone else have a good shop maybe in the San Fernando Valley area they could turn me too? Please?! It's gotta get done soon.

Jake, where's MOB located??

Sorry about your damage...
Check out Auto FLM in N. Hollywood and ask for Craig. 818-980-9396. They've done good work for me.

Sorry to hear about the accident...hey, at least it's just body damage.

You keep asking how much repairs will cost, which makes it sound like you have to pay for this out of your own pocket...Did the person that hit you run?

:monkey: :monkey: :monkey: Inattentive drivers (my poor WRX has been victimised by them at least 3 times)

Hey business,
No, she's paying for it. I just want to find a good price for her because she's a friend of a friend and frankly, the lower the price the quicker she'll be willing to pay for it. Of course quality is a must have. I got one quote written up today. FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS!!!!! Man, I had no idea. I'll let her know but I'm sure she'll just change her numer after I tell her. Business, wasn't Star automotive the place you said you went to and would never go back to? If so remind me why. Need more info folks!!!

Hey...I feel yer pain man....I was just recently rear ended also...on the freeway...in stop and go traffic, one morning on my way to school. My damage was just as bad as yers....the bumper was pretty messed up and dented in... Insurance recommended a good shop for me down here in San Diego. Good luck getting it fixed!

aw, sorry man, welcome to the club. I got hit twice on the back. The first one was a hit and run. So the second one was pretty much a blessing. I feel your pain of not having the car for a while...twice (both different situations). Good luck!

Oh yeah, you can do better than that. I rented a Dodge Ram V8 when my car was at the shop. Didn't have to pay a cent.

So, now that you're driving the Metro, how does it feel to have real HP under your right foot?

Looks like its time for a Body kit, a law suit, and chiropractor.
