There a shop in Pasadena. The name is c & c collision. They did a excellent job on my front bumper. Contact this # (626) 795-4749 and ask for Nathan.

I believe there are only 2 "certified" BMW repair shops in the LA/OC area. New Century in Alhambra and Spectrum Collision in Irvine.

Are you guys "Certified" or "Authorized"? On the BMW Certified Collision Center website, it does not show McKenna as a Certified Collision center.

We're a BMW Certified Collision Center. I'm guessing BMW hasn't updated that online list in a while.

I'm about to pick up my M from C&C Collision. They've been nice to deal with so far, and I can't wait to see the end results. I had a Euro bumper and new hood put on and painted. I'm planning to post a review on here after I get my car back and finish spending some quality time catching up with it.

I also had my euro bumper painted from c&c. I was worried that the paint wont match and what i hear is that mw is very hard to match, but c&c did a excellent job matching the paint.

How much are they charging? Do they put bumper material in the opening?

My bumper is from europe. So it comes with no reflectors. You might want to give them a call and ask them how much it cost to fill in the reflector gap.

If your brother is really picky, go to New Century, they use BMW color system for a perfect paint match.

Nc BMW is good, very good...but every expensive. If going thru ins, then why not...out of pocket, u will pay. Their estimate systems are meant for insurance companies and hard to get a quote just alone. Anyhow if u go there, go see William D.

They've done two of my cars, flawless

I just got back from C&C and they did an incredible job on my Euro bumper and hood. Nathan said it would be perfect, and guess what? It is!

Go to C&C, I'm glad I did!
