lol @ velocity. Did you hear how they damaged a Lamborghini Murcielago last year on a joy ride? Consequently they are now banned from the company that insured the lambo (I don't remember who the guy was insured by). In short any car that is insured by that company CANNOT get a claim and receive work done by velocity.

Lol, I never heard abt that. But I was speaking based on past personal experiences. Not saying I don't believe u, but u also have to understand that everyone/shop have made mistakesn jus so happens they had to do it on a lambo. Not disagreeing on what u were saying, to be banned from a insurance company is pretty serious aswelk. By any chance do u know the full story to this? But anyways, from someone that never been there obviously stories like wat u said wud scare them away, but personally they do a good job, personally experienced and seen it. =) op was asking for a body shop, I reommended one. Hahaah its funny how out of all cars dey hav to **** up a lambo tho lol

I was actually there the day it happened - not @ Velocity but a shop very close to it. A customer brought in the murcielago to have minor paint work done to (from what I heard) scratches. It was coming to the end of the lease and well it had to be fixed.

Customer leaves and my cars in the garage nearby so I was walking around in the back area. I heard them revving it and naturally want to take it for a drive. The whole time I'm wiping the drool off my face while gawking at its beauty.

It started to either snow/rain (I don't remember which one). If your familiar with Heritage road you know that it is a long stretch and people naturally boot it for fun only to realize the bend at the end when its too late.

Drive lost control, spun, hopped the curb and all sorts of fun stuff. From what I was told - the drive shaft was damaged, a rim, fender and more. Somewhere near $20k+ in damages.

Needless to say there garage doors stayed closed for a couple days and they told the customer 3 or 4 days after.
