Good body shop in Ma?

I know I have done a few threads about the Akrapovic exhaust threads but would anyone like to enlighten me on some good auto body shops in Ma that would install an Akrapovic Full evolution exhaust on an E92? I'm not entirely sure if my dealer is going to install it?

Check out Kaizen Tuning in Acton, MA. Great facility and great people. You can definitely trust them with your car. They are a bit pricey but well worth it. Just ask for Scott (owner), or Pete. http://kaizentuning.com/

I checked w/ kaizen tuning a couple days ago... they intially quoted me a crazy amount but I went in and spoke with their head technician and he said they could install it at the prices that other shops have been quoting me. I'm still debating whether to do it there or on my own, but I would trust kaizen to handle the installation

Take it to a reputable shop that specializes on BMWs. I would avoid anything else. Marc Feinstein at German performance builds BMW racecars and also services road cars. I've had very good experience there. He know his stuff. He used to work at Turner (and he is a top notch club racer).

Of course, you can always take it to Turner as well.

If you don't mind crossing into NH to get better labor rates and no tax, VSR is the place to go. Mario just built my S14 motor. They also service BMW race and road cars.

Dicks Auto Body in Somerville is very good. They have done work on my car as well as others I know and everyone has always been very happy.

Frank always puts in the extra effort and it shows.

This shop has been around for at least 30+ years.

It's within walking distance of the Davis Square Red Line stop....

A body shop isn't what you need for the install of an Akrapovic a good BMW Service shop is. As "bwalshy99" stated:

Turner sells and installs Akrapovic exhausts on M3s all the time so they know what they are doing. Call and speak with Marco, he will take good care of you and the price will be reasonable. They did mine for me.

If it is actual bodywork, nobody is better than Dick's auto body in Somerville. Best in the state for any car. Specialize in BMWs.
