I had this happen to me last weekend -



Does this damage look like something that a body shop could repair, and then repaint just that area? If so, does anybody have a recommendation for a good body shop in the Chicago metro/suburb area?

Otherwise, I'm looking at putting a new OEM bumper on and getting it color matched to my car. If you have recommendations on a shop that does exceptional paint matching, I'd love to hear about them.

I am not from the area, however I have had a very similar type of damage repaired and painted/blended with excellent results..Myself and the shop were the only ones who knew it wasn't a new piece...

A&L Autobody. Anthony is a big in the car community
Thanks Mark. I'm obviously interested in getting this fixed ASAP :) If it takes a new front bumper to do it right, so be it.

Bummer :(

That looks fixable. A&L has a great reputation and they are in your area. You do not need a "performance" body shop.

I'm going to apply a variation of this fix.
