Resprays Leicester area

Hi
Thinking of getting the Z3 resprayed this year, can anyone recommend a body shop in or around the Leicester area.
Thanks

It may sound unlikely, but try the BMW main dealer bodyshop.

At Williams Stockport near me, the body shop is a separate facility, but working to main dealer standards. When l bought my Z3 in 2014 it had some stone chips to the front. I took it to the BMW body shop. They took off and resprayed the front bumper, and resprayed the bonnet.

The job was literally perfection and the bill was £550.

Hi
Thanks for your reply, May give them a try, Have found BMW parts from the main dealer too be not that much dearer than independants or motor factors. Just seams to be the labour rate that's the killer!

I had a full respray at BMW Sytner Sheffield for £2000. They sorted all the problems (and there will be issues with any respray) without quibble.

I know that Sheffield isn't Leicester, but it was a main dealer.
