sorry to hear about this. take it to Martino Auto Concepts (MAC) in Glen Cove. they do outstanding collision repair work, loads of high end cars. i was just there yesterday for a few mods and saw their amazing facility first hand. derek from MAC is on the forums a lot, you'll find him over on the E90post NY forum if you want to get his exact name to PM him.

thanks for the quick response guys. i've heard but praises for MAC but i'm just scared of the pricetag. i'm not sure GEICO will be able to cover their labor costs. i'll give derek a call tomorrow, hope he's willing to work with me. thanks.

No worries on the price tag... we would never charge you above and beyond the cost of your claim.
Going to the best doesn't have to cost you the most!
Call or PM me to discuss further.
Thanks for the love guys!

Oh, and PLEASE whatever you decide, DO NOT bring a car like a M3 to an "express" or "pro" shop.

You would think they are expensive by the pics they post from their shop. But surprisingly they are priced very fairly. Even cheaper than most of the crappy body shops where I live.

I did some shopping around when I needed my hood repaired and MAC's prices were very fair and work was really good.

spoke to derek and john earlier today, very nice people... they just had their flatbed pick the car up 30 mins ago! i'm so at peace knowing that the car is in excellent hands. i also spoke to nate and ilia from IND and ordered an oem bumper with the molded vrs lip . can't wait to visit MAC's shop! again, thanks a lot guys for your input.
