I just got hit by a bike that scratched up the paint and put a small dent into the back corner of my 02' Jetta. Can anyone recommend a good paint/body shop to get this fixed at? I live near 32nd street and the 51 in north Phoenix, AZ.
I bought my car from Chapman so I have already tried Chapman Scottsdale Collision Center.
They want $753.59 to repair the damage.
I would like to get at least two more quotes.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you
Update: I took it to "Select Auto Body" and they quoted $780.06
The corner and the trunk is dented and scratched. Here's some photos of the problem area:

I feel your pain ... Tuesday night, my car was parked in Mesa while I attended a meeting. The car was parked under a light, isolated from the other cars in the lot. Some low-life dirtbag proceeded to kick the driver's door with his steel-toed boot, for no damn reason. He put a nice wave in the center of the door, beneath the molding. The worst part is that I just replaced my last new car with this 1.8T Jetta. The last car was hit head-on by a guy who had been drinking at happy-hour. He totalled it after only 1 month

Any other body shop recs? I need a shop that specializes in euro cars, not domestics.

Select is the only Factory autorized VW repair facility in AZ other than dealers (Earnhardt and Chapman) .. they do the best work and never cut corners.. So glad I got refered to em for my old school Cabriolet.. no other body shop will ever get a penny from me.

i know its a late reply, but avoid chapman collision in Scottsdale at all costs. I work for a Chapman dealer, and they screwed me over badly. I can only imagine what they do to the general public, but I've heard several horror stories from co-workers and general public. The advisors are incompetent and liars. The manager is a jack-ass who treats people like sh*t. The work is 2nd rate at best and they take 2 to 3 times longer than any average body shop.
