Recommendations for excellent body shop in GTA??

I am located in Newmarket and long story short, my hood has so many stone chips I am considering getting it resprayed. Anyone know of any good shops that respray aluminum body parts?

TIA

Off topic, but you probably have one of the most CREATIVE username's I've ever run into.

btw, I'm Indian (I think you're Indian too since I saw your avatar)

So the best 'indian' handle I have seem on the board so far is "PunjabiM3"

Sorry, don't know any good shops...

European Autobody is most likely going to be your best bet for a higher end car but they will definately not be your cheapest.
They are the same ownersip as Maranello BMW and Ferrari of Ontario. They are the only Ferrari factory authorized repair shop in Canada.

I have also heard good things about Mr. John autocollision.

European Autobody is the best.
Engineered Automotive is also very good, talk to Steve there.

surprisingly, Royfoss (yes the GM dealership) has a first rate body shop (yonge/steeles area)... they do all the work for Town and Country BMW. They have some very expensive frame/panel straightening equipment that a lot of shops can't afford.

someone hit my e90 330i a couple years ago long the rear door and rear fender, totally creasing up the panels...they fixed it up to look absolutely brand new without replacing any parts.

Excellence Auto

Well, I was just browsing the forum and came across this post...I just wanted to add my experience. I had a terrible experience with Peter Woo and excellence auto 4 years ago. I had a bought a brand new 550i with M package at that time. About a month into ownership I scratched my passenger side 1/4 panel against a pole. Small damage so paint scratches and a very tiny dent. I asked Parkview BMW who they would recommend for body work and they told me to contact Peter Woo so I did. He seemed great on the phone and got me to go in next day. He seemed like a great guy in person too and reassured me that the car would come out great. 2 days later I got a call to go pick up my car. I was super excited. As I walked through the shop door I saw another 550i with M package but looked a lot older. Went to the counter and saw Peter. He pointed out the same car and asked what do you think? I was in total shock. Basically the car looked 5 yrs old. As I inspected closely it looked like someone had taken a scuff pad to the whole car. The clear coat was so badly scratched that I could barely recognize my car. The area that he had fixed at the wheel arch looked ok (Although the arch line was not as sharp as the other side). I asked what had happened to the car and he said that they had washed the car prior to painting it and that the only reason I can see scratches now is that the Wax that was on the car before is now washed off. I paid him 1200 dollars for the repair and left still in shock. Long story short I ended up selling the car a month later because I couldn’t stand looking at it.
I would stay all clear of Excellence Auto.

Excellence is very good from the stuff I have seen same with 427 Auto collision (Fil or Frank) and the obvious European Autobody (Deal with Manny),....although personally I use Rich at Luxury Auto Body.


BTW +1 for being Indian
