Insurance didn't want to total the car, because the repair estimate was only 25,500 on a 32,000msrp car. JMK went the extra step for us. They completely disasembled the entire car, and made an inventory of EVERY single damaged componenet. The extra few thousand dollars worth of damage they found was enough to convince insurance to total the car out. I have NEVER had a body shop come to bat for me against insurance like that, and I really appreciated it. It was quite a site seeing my car in their body shop... just a bent frame, surrounded by body panels, suspension parts, wheels, brakes, seats, and everything else that makes up a car.


Now that's impressive

Thats good to hear. I met him once over a year ago when i was car shopping for a M3. I barely remember him so i'm sure he wont remember me either . I ended up buying a 2004 cobra coupe so i never went through JMK; however, when im in the market for a 135 I plan to contact him first.

They are putting on a new addition too right?
