Hello guys!
Any advice on good body shops in/near London?
I have tried Autobody Technic in the past (good people) but hard to reach and out of the way for me (in Slough) for me in North London.
Thanks a bunch!

Autobody Technic is quite good (also used by my mechanic). They do a lot of sports cars so have a good sense for detail. My main issue is that it takes me 2 hours to get to them and 2 hours back - as well as hard to reach. Therefore looking for something closer / easier to reach

I agree I wouldn't travel 2 hours for a job thats "quite good" but for an excellent paint job I would.

M&A coachworks in Highgate are excellent. V.expensive though but I trust them more than any other painter I've experienced.

1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 4

Exact same question came up recently and I recommended Langley Autocraft in Kings Langley. The OP used them and was very happy. One of the owners has a very nice 993 and is a real Porsche fan. Situated almost next door to JZM they see lots of Porsche and know their way around them. Ask to speak to Pete.

Hatfield use M@A, or certainly used to. Not sure if this is still the case.

I live in North London (N10) and I can happily recommend M&A Coachworks. They painted my Boxster a few years back as part of an insurance claim. They did a great job.
