Body shops in Seattle area? got hit

Anyone know any good body shops in the Seattle area?

I got hit by some idiot today

The accident was not my fault. Im going to need the passenger doors replaced, the right rocker panel, and right rear quarter panel.

University Mazda recommended Aurora Collision. Any experiences with these guys?

Thanks


*********UPDATE****************

Aurora Collision is part of the State Farm "network".

So I already took it in today for the estimate.

Ill drop if off Monday Morning. It'll take 7 days to repair.

New door skin on the passenger door.
Whole replacement door for the suicide door - Mazda doesnt sell skins. (yeah)

This part I dont like- they will be cutting out the section on the quarter panel (just above the rock guard) to past the dent in the rocker panel and welding in a piece from a new part.

Does this sound right to everyone? I guess it doesnt matter, as Im taking it in on Monday.

Sorry to hear that.

You might try calling some other high end car dealer like Barrier Motors and see who they recommend.

From reading about some of the other repairs that needed to be done on 8s, it sounds like cutting and welding is standard operating procedure, and is about the only way to repair that rear quarter panel.

Sorry for the pain/loss/inconvenience because of some other stupid driver.

At least 7 days is much better than a month or more!

I swear people are really out to get us 8 drivers lately. I've had to use some evasive manouvers every day this week! Idiots pulling out in front of me, cutting me off. I even had one stupid girl go straight through an intersection from the turn lane! Then she got pissed at me, and waved the bird at me, when I honked because se was slowly creeping into my lane (the only lane that goes straight through the intersection)!

I saw her playing with her phone, and her fat friend in the passenger seat was writing something down...I really hope the cops call me so I can describe to them what the stupid bitch did and they can revoke her licence or something. My 4 year old was in the car.....I don't take kindly to people putting her in unneccesary danger.

Well that's my rant....glad you're ok.

Spring fever maybe? My sig other, with no wrecks in 26 years of driving, had a Tahoe run a stop sign and pull out right in front of her last Friday. She t-boned the Tahoe at 30 mph. She is pretty beat up and the Civic Hybrid is totaled. A Civic won't win a fight with a Tahoe. And a friend was hit and knocked down in a crosswalk today. People are nuts out there! Sorry for the hijack.

Whether rain or shine! Washingtonians are prone to crash: into the I-5 barriers during rush hour traffic, into street lamp lights no matter how few of them exists, and to each other like we're magnetizes. Remember! In Washington, you drive like hell when it's pouring and HOV lanes are for slow traffic! :p Glad to hear/read that you're okay though! :D

I didnt take any pics. I dont want to be reminded over how she looks. I dropped her off for repair this morning.

It makes me sick everytime I look at the damage or think about it.
