After walking through the shady BS of most bodyshops, there are only two shops that I will let touch my car, or personally recommend to others:

1) Richard at what was formerly Atlantic Etobicoke.
-he has worked on several of my friends' cars, including people on this forum and there has NEVER been a complaint. He's a car nut himself with a crazy modded M3, so he understands and appreciates the expectations his customers have from him when he works on their cars.
-pricing is more than reasonable, but not exactly cheap. It's worth every penny though knowing you don't have to worry about the quality of the job or the customer service afterwards.
-Call him between 8-5 @ (416) 881 4607, tell him Anuk sent you.

2) European Autobody
-arguably the best paintjob money can buy in the GTA
-very expensive, but again, you have nothing to worry about when getting work done. I believe they are the only factory authorized paint facility for Ferrari in Canada and handle all of the R. Ferri group of dealerships (BMW of Mississauga, Maranello BMW, Ferrari of Ontario/Toronto, Mini Vaughn, etc.).
-Call and ask for Manny (416) 679 8722.

Hope this helps!

-A.

Anuk, do you know any prices off the top of your head? I'm looking to get my front end (bumper,hood and fenders if needed) resprayed this summer, because there are too many rock chips.

Any idea how much a full respray would be?

European wanted $2500 just to paint from the fenders forward. Just to give you an idea.

Fender forward ..no hood? if it's with hood $2500 is not too bad....

For front/back bumpers and sides.. any bodyshop with 15 to 20 years in business should be able to provide good workmanship at a reasonable price... key here is Life Time warranty..as long as you own the car...

No idea. It's best you phone up the places and find out first hand.

+1 for LAB.

Just had Rich paint/mold my lip on my front bumper and the quality of work is amazing. Don't take you car to European there prices are ridiculous unless your getting it covered under insurance but still they have had complaints from people, of course the work they do on Ferrari's is going to be top notch because there getting paid 5-10x the price lol... Also someone on this forum had there car painted there and the work was crap for how much they paid (how much insurance paid actually lol)...
