need a referral for dent removal in Brisneyland

Ok, long story (semi-) short-

driving out of valley tonight and drunken idiot decides to punch my drivers side door as I drove past him. I pulled over to check it out down McLachlan St and he decides to come and take it further with me. His mistake, I expect he's a bit sore now.

So it looks like car is ok, but I get it into the garage and there's a small dent in the door. Paint isn't cracked and I think it should "pop" out ok, but I'd love a referral if anyone can recommend someone.

Or should I just ask BMW to do it and pay them whatever?

cheers,
Matt.

hey sorry to hear what happened. thats nearly happened to me a handful of times in the valley now as well. really annoys me. anyways i had an accident in my e46 just over a year ago and got the repairs done through:

Brisbane BMW Bodyshop
53-57 Victoria St
Windsor QLD 4030
07 3357 3611

In the end i was very impressed with the work they did, my car looked like brand new when i got it back so i was very happy. only bad thing is the service and they took 4 times longer than the estimated time they stated which was a huge inconvenience. for something minor like this i cant imagine them taking too long with your car though. i cant remember what the pricing was like but it seemed fairly competitive and they are also a bmw approved recommended repairer.

ditto - they've got an excellent back beater they contract; but they refused to tell me who he is . So you'll be paying like 160/dent instead of 80.

Thanks guys. I did a bit of searching and found a business at Aspley called AutoDents and the guy who runs it, Lee, apparently has experience with BMW's.

Will give them both a call on Tuesday and quote something up.
