    well now your username on the board makes more sense... 'over land er' ;)

    Unfortunatly the last body shop in the area I used I wasn't pleased with. Small dents can easily be repaired.. the cost is going to be in the paint/prep. If I had to throw a ballpark number out there.. probably expect 400-500.

    We used Craftsman Auto Body in Sterling - (703) 478-2210. They did a great job. My only compliant was waiting on a part to come from the manufacturer. Dealing with insurance was also no problem with them.

    I have been told that one of best autobody shops in Northern VA is WagonWerks, in Arlington (down Rt 1, near the Porsche dealership). That is a hike for anyone in Loudoun.

    A coworker had his Audi repaired there and I could not tell where they repaired the front end (fender, front bumper cover, headlight). The metallic paint match was excellent.
