Recommended Body Shop / NYC,CT

Saturday afternoon after working, I was driving home and stopped at a red light. A Range Rover drove right into the back of the car, crushing the area under the passenger side back light. Of course that guy's car is fine, but our '97 silver Boxster is damaged. Sigh. Does anyone have a recommendation for a reliable body shop in New York or CT?

Cortes, you might contact Danbury Porsche and see who does their body work. I had a front console replaced and the paint is a perfect match and silver is hard to do. Where are you located more specifically as that may determine and answer from other members. Good luck.

Several years ago Luke's Auto Body in Norwalk, CT did an excellent job on my rear-ended IROC-Z. Couldn't have been happier.

Need good repair shop in NYC or outside city

Hi, thanks for responding - we're in NYC (in Queens). Now to make things a lot worse - there's been a horrible squeaking sounds that's been slowly developing since the accident. The last time we drove into Manhattan it sounded like the car was going to fall apart. Not sure if its the suspension. The insurance company said that we'll need to prove that its related to the accident. Instead of a body shop, we now need a really good, reliable Porsche repair shop.
I'd appreciate any help.
