I recently used Superfinish Australia 698 South Rd Moorabbin

They did a great job (If your insurance will allow you to choose repairer)

My experience with Superfinish wasn't great when the dealer engaged them to fix a scratch they put on the car (my 2er).

They attempted 3 times to respray my rear bar in Mineral White with a different issue each time. They also snapped my Mperf front splitter the second time and left the car covered in polish residue and wipe marks each time.

To their credit, atleast Con (I believe the owner?) never argued when I took the car back to complain about the work.

That being said, the 4th time it ended up getting a new bar and taken around the corner to Mr Gloss, who I can recommend (they also did work some years back on my Clio)

I have also used Mr Gloss and was happy with the work.

But if you have any Sun Corp insurance products (like AAMI, GIO, Shannon's) they probably wont deal with you.

Thanks !
Also how does one change their profile pic on this app? Went to settings and can't lock in any changes, and can't upload anything on the desktop either??

City Auto Group in Richmond - look them up on facebook etc - they do most of the exotic dealers cars (Ferrari, Porsche, lambos etc) but have found them very reasonable

Another question - has any one had a good experience with PPF protection? the ceramic nanos offer resistance to stains and bug innards etc but not much defense against stones.
And if you used PPF and had a good experience, recommendations?

ive used BMW Bundoora Bodyshop many times for my G01, unfortunately!

the second time i got many quotes and after some negotiating with BMW Bodyshop, they were pretty much the same price as other panel shops or cheaper, plus they give you a good service.

Happy with the job both times.
