Hit and run fender bender.. need advice

My drivers side rear fender got dented, it's pretty bad, but I believe only the fender got damaged.

Can anyone recommend a legit body shop that can repair this?

Anyone have any idea how much it'll roughly cost?

My car is alpine white, hopefully that makes repainting it cheaper/easier.

This sucks!

+1 for Nathan at C&C in Pasadena.

They can repair your baby to mint condition.

I highly recommend this paint & body shop for their repair work and color matching skills. C&C will make you car look like it was never damaged at all. That's how good these guys are...

Mr. Harris, for once...don't argue with me please.

Just trust my advice and give Nathan Simmons a call.

(626) 795-4749

I'll trust you LMB, your advice is 99% spot on. Are they experienced with BMW's? Particularly the E9Xs?

Sorry to hear about this bud, I had a similar issue and its an infuriating thing to deal with. Best of luck with a speedy and reasonable repair!

Go to C&C, that is a repair that needs to be done right.

If it was hit and run it might go against your uninsured motorist coverage if you have it.
