Cheap bodyshop in London?


Whilst a US forum, I know there are a number of the UK contingent on here.

I'm after a CHEAP but decent chap who can sort the rust on my wheel arches - thanks to mercedes not being able to do a decent job with the design of the W08 (or paint it!).

So if anyone can recommend a cheap bodyshop - please let me know.

It's almost like asking for a cheap plastic surgeon . . . discount sushi . . . low cost shoes . .

Ditto the the others. If your car is worth keeping then it's also worth spending a few more quid for a decent job. If you cheap out the rust will be back before you know it and the paint job will be lousy. In the US we have a few MB certified collision centers so I would look for one of those.
