Need opinions on great bodyshop in Bay Area

Folks....looks like I am going to go with a new front bumper. Probably going to buy a used one that will need to be repainted to match my car. Can someone recommend a really good shop that will repaint the bumper and install? I have used B-line in San Jose before and they are good but too slow and kinda far from me (but distance is not a deal breaker).

Thanks for any help

These guys did a very nice job on my rear bumper and right rear quarter panel after a someone hit my car while it was parked. They came highly recommended by the guys at BMW of Fremont, who claim that they send all their body work there. Ask for Homer.

all shops are slow. just go to the best shop. b-line is good.. the works in santa clara.. if you're in sf cars dawydiak is probably the best in the bay.

I've used the Works Autobody in Santa Clara and Brooks in Oakland, both of which were very good. I'm pretty anal about my cars, so you can't go wrong with either of these shops.
