    Body Shop in Austin?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I'm looking for recommendations for a body shop in Austin to review my '14 Rs7. Got rear ended last night and pushed into the car up front so I have damage on both ends of the car. I know there are individuals/shop who are great at matching/blending, and I realize cars are replaceable.... but I'm also really concerned about getting this back to the perfection it was before the accident.... the car just won "Best Paint".....

    Any recommendations?

    I think I'm going to try the local Cars and Coffee next week also to see what's out there.

    I 2nd Berli’s but yep be prepared to wait to have it fixed. They’re quick about looking at the damage initially though.

    Thank you.

    I went and looked at the car this morning and it doesn't look horrible. I was worried the damage got into the rear quarters but they looked ok. The hatch isn't aligned but it's almost like she went under the car.... which is hard for me to believe since the car is on an HR module and lowered. All the damage was in the bumper, crash support, exhaust and the gas tank was crushed along with some under structure supports that I could visually see. Minor visible damage up front bu the grill and hood are slightly mis aligned.

    I'll give Berli's a call though I'm still open to other suggestions if anyone has them.

    I had a few more votes for Berli's including from Elite Motorsports so I had the car towed there yesterday. I'll update this later with my experience.

    Thought I post a quick update here incase anyone is searching in the future. I spoke with Berli's: http://www.berlisbody.com/

    They are certified by Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce for repairs. In one trip I saw 2 Rolls, Bentley car, Bentley SUV, Aston martin and numerous other high end cars getting various repairs and paintwork. Though my first car was ultimately totaled, the shop was fantastic and gave me a great feeling.

    My new car had more rock chips than I preferred so I opted to have the entire front end re-sprayed. Though they aren't cheap, they do seem to be the best in Austin. I'll post another update in a few days when I get the car back, but I am expecting perfection given their reputation and my ongoing experience.
