So, I had an "incident" with my R this afternoon thanks to a jay walking grannie (she was ok) and now I need a good body shop in the bay area pronto. Any recommendations? Anyone I should avoid? The towing company wants to get my car out of the lot in 2 days.

that looks more in the totaled category, not the body damage category. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Let me know if you also need a good mechanic, and I hope that the car lives again very soon <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emlove.gif" BORDER="0">

OMG I'm so sorry! That looks pretty bad. I'm in San Francisco but I take my car to Mckevit in Berkeley. I cant say I know any body shops in the city here for that...Call Royal motors and ask them who does their body work for them. I think their body shop is down by Best Buy near the Costco...right by the Volvo dealer there. Good luck and keep us updated on the progress.<p>My friend had front end work on his xc 70 from them and it turned out perfectly spotless like new...but his was more of a glorified fender bender that he drove away from

Holy isht! I just wish you didn't mention "Camry"...<p>Glad to hear everyone is alright! Not for nothing, maybe you can get a nice upgraded IC out of this??? If not, there are plenty of 'used' ones laying around!<br>

I have taken a couple of cars to Superior Auto Body in San Carlos. They did an amazing job on my Audi. They are who Rector (Audi/Porsche) send their cars to.
