Unfortunately, the wet weather that has descended on the Bay Area has brought not just rain, but a lot of fender benders. Keep in mind that you DO have choice of where to take your BMW for body work and repairs. We are hearing frustrated consumers complain that their insurance companies are trying to get them to go somewhere other than a qualified BMW specialty shop after their BMW has been damaged in an accident. This is the kind of thing that you want to check out when you are purchasing your insurance. Read, and understand your contract so you know what your rights are.
You will probably be told that you have a guarantee or warranty with one of the insurance companies Direct Repair Shops, but, you probably have that with the repairer of your choice, also. Remember to ask!
