Was considering that. It was at my business, and we do have CCTV but I was only there for an hour so parked in a blindspot. Still, I'm hopeful I can pick up who it was.

I was going to go with BMW Bodyshop, but heard Charlie Batisti is the best in VIC?

Some people need to be fucking shot, the impact scraped the rear panels right down to the metal.

Charlie Battisti is the best, but usually booked out for months...

I feel your pain mate, I don't trust anyone these days, and on the odd occasion where I am forced to park between other cars I now take photos of the cars on either side of me with my phone, in case anyone tries to do a runner.

I heard also Mr Gloss thrown around for these things. Talk to the dealer also, they may not always use BMW body shop

I didn't know woolworths had CCTV ha

Just kidding mate, that's bad news. I've witnesses a couple hit and runs now and both times they pretended nothing happened and drove off - but I left the details on the damaged cars windscreen hoping someone would do the same for me, touch wood. I've used the bodyshop in port melbourne before and they were great, but sounds like CB is better if they can squeeze you in

Sorry to hear mate, hopefully you catch the bastards!

I can highly recommend Charlie Battisti. They have done some significant work for me in the past (numerous occasions) and the car always comes out perfect.I always dealt with a gentleman called Noel who is very knowledgeable and goes out of his way to make sure the customer is 100% happy.

The only "issue" is that they can be a little slow because they are so booked out
.
I've also heard of Mr. Gloss a fair bit but have no experience with them.
