Recommended Miami Body Shop

I Have some very small chips and curb rash that I want to fix; wanted to know if anyone has recommendations to either a forum user or body shop to give me a quote. Thanks!

I don't know of any. I have a few buddies who are great at wet sanding and detailing, if you think it will come out with that

Ill give him a heads up if you want to bring it by and see what he can do.

I just had my car keyed. so I'm going to be stopping by him sometime soon.

Hey Louis, try Bimmershop just across Braman Body Shop, they fixed my front lip at a very reasonable price, they work on bimmers only, good quality job
Also there is a member in this forum who owns a well known body shop, I think his member name is IFX, you may contact him as well

Last time I went to bimmershop it looked like a junk yard. Too many cars and not enough space...maybe it's changed.

But back on topic, I've been to countach body shop behind the collection...not cheap, but very professional.

Chinos Ink is good, but only from what I've heard.

I appreciate the recommendation buddy!

OP, if you are willing to drive up to Fort Lauderdale, I have a shop there.

PM me if you need anything

I was recommending the OP bimmershop based on the price and quality of their work and not based on the looks of the shop, if you want a nice looking body shop just go to Braman and pay double what you would pay in any other shop
On the other hand there is IFX body shop which has a very good reputation, never have been there but only heard good things about them

Thanks for the input guys. It is really minor, basic stuff (thank god) so location being close to my office downtown or my wife's office by Merrick Park is a plus so that I can take the Metro or get a ride while the work is being done.

IFX, I will keep you in mind if I ever get anything larger that is more of a multiple day job.

I had a quote by Bimmershop, and it was very good. It did look run down, but again that isn't reflective of their service.

IFX's shop gave me a better quote though. I haven't had the work done yet, so I need to go by again soon.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know IFX did work on my car last weekend. Came out perfect. I had work done on a scratch/dent from where someone hit me on the passenger door, as well as where someone scratched up my back bumper from rear-ending me. All came out very well, and at a very good price. I highly recommend the shop.
