I'll revive this recommendation thread with my endorsement of The Works Auto Body (Santa Clara). Their contact information is in the first post of this thread but I'd like to add my testimonial.

Works Auto Body repaired my rear bumper after a Porsche Cayenne backed into me in a parking lot. They were fast and courteous with an on-the-spot quote for repair and were on the insurance company's list of approved shops. The owner and shop guys were nice and flexible about my drop off, taking me to Caltrain so I could get to work.

They sent out the bumper to be reformed and rescued the rear park sensor in the damaged area. The final color match was excellent and quality of the paint was so close to factory that I could not tell the difference. After the repair, Works washed my car with care (I watched as I arrived) and the whole job took no longer than 3 days. Excellent work and first-rate service, I recommend this shop to friends and coworkers.

Just moved to SF.

Any suggestion on which Stealership/Dealership to go to that's mod friendly? Car has tune/euro coding/mods etc. The car is 2009 but has platnium extended warranty

-For some reason my driver seat sits very high, it's not as low as other BMWs or M3s. Unless US Spec E92 M3 sits higher? Friend's Euro Spec E90 sat a lot lower
-Nav seems a bit kookoo. 09 car. The route it takes me is completely off, compared to google and also my personal knowledge. It would often take the longer route with lots of unnecessary turns.
-Nav, I cannot cancel the route when I decide I no longer need it. Once I cancel it, it pops back up and re-routes

Car Wash:
-I live in Marina. Any good hand car washes around SF (willing to drive a bit if necessary) that knows how to take care of black cars (very anal about swirals, and this is my first black car, always had white cars) that isn't crazy money

Thanks a lot
