'12 LGT front end damage
1 Attachment(s)
I had the privilege of hitting a large traffic cone SB on I-5 this morning and you can see what that will do at freeway speed. :icon_mad:
I live in Bothell but work in Seattle, so any input on a good shop in either area to do the repairs would be appreciated.

Sorry to hear of your accident. I think you should keep it like that. That character line actually makes the 5th Gen looks better! :hide: :D

What a bummer! But I've always taken my subaru to GW auto rebuild in edmonds on highway 99, they do all of carter subaru's work. The work is so great it's like it never happened, just like it should be. Ask me how I know.. :spin:

So LK5, how do you know? I called Carter on Friday and the did suggest GW, i will check to see if they are preferred under my insurance.

Depending on your deductible and such I think I would just get a new bumper cover for 130ish and get is painted. Seems like it would be between 400-500 if you just got the parts and got it painted. My not be worth going through insurance. My 2 cents

Last year my car was backed into in the school parking lot by some girl not paying a slight bit of attention to her surroundings. Crushed my rear passenger door, and the door jam as well, all together it was about 4k worth of damage. To this day you'd never know it happened and the work is absolutely phenomenal, I will take any car I own to them.

Queen City Auto
I have had pretty good luck with Queen City Auto in Redmond (right by Redmond Town Center). Their post work detailing is phenominal. I hit a roll of astro-turf on I90 near spokane at 75 and it almost ripped my whole bumper off, they did a great job. My wife's truck has been there, and then my LGT again when someone decided to do a lane merge into me. Any issues with workmanship were always corrected professionally and with excellent customer service.
