[attachmentid=23352]Hello,

Last friday I decided to go Canada and take a trip to winnipeq but on my way thru one small twon some guy rear-ended my 04 325XI causing my vehicle to strike a pick up truck in front of me. There was minor damge to the front bumper (that I can see) is out of place by about 1/4" and my rear bumper got hit pretty good. It has a big center dent along with cosmetic damage. Here is my QUESTION: Do I have to bring that vehicle to a BMW dealer or should I trust my local body shop where they do good work? Should I be concern about any hidding damages? The impact was at about 15 MPH or less. I had placed my vehicle in neutral and held my foot on the brake because I saw the guy coming in my rear view mirror and I knew he was going to hit me. I will be grateful if you guys can give me some feed back
Thanks,
Oscar.

Hi Oscar! I do not think you should take now your car to BMW stealer , if you have good body shop let them do the job and after -if I were you- I would take the car to stealership for aligment- they are really good on it . Best regards!

Take it to the body shop, not the dealership.
