I got rear-ended yesterday :/... Body shop recommendations in San Jose?

My M3 got rear-ended yesterday morning. Sad times :/... My car is currently sitting at Stevens Creek BMW. Anyone have any recommendations on Bay Area body shops? The closer to San Jose, the better, though I don't mind going a ways for a good job. Thanks!

DO NOT go to B-Line! They take FOREVER. Peter NEVER returns calls. There was MASS overspray on my car. To top it off they tried to strong-arm my insurance company over $100 which ended up delaying my repair 2 weeks! Of course they told me it was all the insurance company but I called my regional manager and he explained it all in detail, which convinced me that B-Line was trying to scam as much $ out of them as possible and delaying my car in the process. Apparently they have a rep with the insurance companies for doing this.

Net, net...stay away. Go to Int'l Autobody....they rock! Johnny is a straight-up guy and a major car enthusiast. His shop is a Porsche museum

I never had a problem with them returning calls and never had over spray on my car when I had to get paint work done on my 335i. They also did a great job color matching and molding my lip to my bumper for my M3..

Off topic, but since its all SJ guys, anyone know of a good shop to replace/wrap the silver trim on my e93 with black? Tried posting in the cali forum, but noone answered .Sorry for the thread jack

If you want to go a little further south, Excel Auto Body In Gilroy has done amazing work on some of my other cars, also, Advanced Auto Body in Morgan Hill.

May be too late to help, but Works Auto Body in Santa Clara does fantastic repairs. They were recommended by Dinan.

If you go to works it is hit or miss with their work. I took my bumper over to them to have it painted and the color was really off. They told me that there was nothing wrong with the paint and it was "quality" work. I took it to b-line and had them fix the poor job Works did. It turned out very good.
