Hey guys,

I posted awhile ago about different socal body shops, and I came to conclusion (after visiting 3 of the shops) that T&L was for me (price wise). The thing is, I can never freaking get a hold of Steve, the main guy. I'm in no rush to get it done, but if I could find a place where I can actually talk to the people instead of calling back 3 times/day with no pick-up, I'd appreciate that much more.

Anyways, my main question was if anyone has ever heard of a body shop in El Monte called "L' Monty Body Shop". I just saw a show on speed vision channel, and their shop looked reallllly clean, nice, and legit (a couple cute front desk ladies) ;) . Has anyone ever had experience with this shop, and know about their prices and quality? Just by looking at the shop and how clean kept and HUGE it was, I wanted to give them a visit.

Their site is listed here:
http://www.lmontybodyshop.com/index.html

Thanks for the help!

My friend totaled her 318ti, got a 2000 323ci totalled that got a 04 325i (this was all within like 2 months) and she just got into an accident. She took it to L Monty and I was unable to see the work that they did cuz it was dark out but they damaged her car and removed the 325i badging without her consent!

If you can afford it go to Beverly Hills Auto Body they are AMAZING!

^ actually come to think about it theyre right up there with the prices of BH auto body. I'd investigate both of them but I cannot attest to L Monty's work as I saw her car in the dark(which is silver... so quality work is not easily seen on the color). I just dont like that they oversprayed a different color onto her car and shaved off her badges and took no responsibility

her damage wasnt too bad. needed a new rim (& new chrome plating) new bumper and repaint of one of the front fenders. She said it was $8,500 they're pretty expensive

lol dude, i was the first guy to refer u to T&L in ur last thread remember? and like i said, no i havent personally gone there, but u can contact a lot of .netters that have.

most of the ppl that posted on ur last thread have been there, so you should try to talk to those people again.
