So what. He damaged your car. He shouldn't be telling you where to take your car. Tell him you only take your car to European Autobody if there are any problems and that's the only place you want it to get fixed. Talk to Manuel or Emillio and tell him you know Mitch.

european autobody is kinda far from me, plus the guy at carstar is my friend's uncle and he's done great jobs. he's going to start modifying his e34 and probably join a club. lets see if he joins maX.

seneca down by lakeshore and cawthra area?

I know the owner (Robert) personally, we do lots of business with him!

Just make sure u tell him exactly what u want, and that insurance is paying for it or something along those lines!

I've had 2 cars completely sprayed by these people, and more than a dozen cars, if not 2 dozen cars worked on by them...

well i got my car back yesterday and took the tape off the trim that has been glued on. (isn't there a screw or something that is supposed to hold it on??)
the trim is coming off right after the door slightly. (i'll post pics later). i can see the black glue they put on and it's not holding too well. i was told i could take the tape off tonight by the guy who worked on my car. i'm probably going to take my car back to them to get it put back on. the paint was pretty good with barely any "orange peel" on it. no overspray except onto the sticker a little on the inside of the door and they painted over the tab for my rust proofing. i'll post pictures later or tomorrow.
here is what it was before:

so i went back to the body shop today and they used urethane glue to hold that part of the trim on. this was the result since the glue couldn't dry properly.
i'm going to go get some clips and tell them to put it on properly. this is just one thing that can go wrong when you take your car to a body shop. they use glue instead of the proper clips.
