Exclamation Car Crash! Need AutoBody shop Recomendation - Orange County

Hello all,

First of all, I've been searching the forums for this type of info, and all I've found was numerous posts about accidents and pictures of accidents but not many recommendations about autobody shops for major accidents. If I post this in the wrong place please let me know! Feel free to flame too. I'll post pics later for all to oogle.

I've never been in an auto accident so I do not really know where to take my car except for maybe the tow guys recommendation since I didn't have time to research. However I need to tow my car to a shop today and would like any recommendations anyone can offer my way. Currently I'm thinking of Sterling Collision in Newport Beach or Spectrum autobody in Irvine. Though both say they're bmw certified on their sites, BMW NA's site says that only Spectrum is certified. I'm leaning toward spectrum, thoughts anyone?

In any case, yesterday a car swerved onto my lane and I therefore also swerved, but ended up demolishing the bottom half of my front right undercarriage as I carefully went into the center median of bushes and a 9inch high curb. The airbags didn't deploy, so the damage wasn't very abrupt, however the front right bottom portion of my car and tires are pretty much toast.
