Platinum Auto in Marina del Rey always did excellent work for me and VERY reasonable prices. Ask for Sue. The rest of the people in there were clueless. It's right by Costco.

It's been a few years since I've been there since I moved.

I've worked with several body shops in the LA area and the only one with work up to my standards is Bastoli Auto Body in Inglewood. Call (866) SMOKED-1 and speak to Jim, tell him Eric Turano recommended you. Being I am a detailer, I have very high standards when it comes to paint and body work quality. No one is better than Jim.

+1 for Jimmy Bastoli. He does all our paint jobs and is next door to our shop.

+2 on Jimmy. He does all my paint work and I'm anal as hell... He always blows me away with his work

Premier Motorsports in Culver City. Their location in Carson is specifically for exotics while the one in Culver city takes in the rest.
