Default Best body shop in south metro area?

Some dumbass on his cell phone clipped the rear bumper of my 100 Series the other day; just some minor cosmetic damage (my wife was sitting at a stop light when it happened), but it will need a small dent repaired in the back corner above the bumper.

I am going to call their insurance company today to file the claim.

I am picky as hell about my vehicles and want it to look brand new again. Who is the best body shop in town that uses Toyota OEM parts? Any good experiences out there with local shops?

Thanks--

Bradford auto body, in Littleton, has a very good reputation. RE: OEM parts, that is pretty much driven by the insurance companies AFAIK by what they will pay for. Often you can specify OEM, you just have to pay the difference. Your insurance company will pursue theirs (go through yours so they can sue if necessary), and yours can advise you on that.

Any other body shop recommendations would be great. (In other parts of town too). Not sure if we have a thread about this already, but it's always helpful to hear opinions and feedback on shops. We need a couple of dents hammered out on our Tacoma too, so any input is helpful. Keep them coming.

They look good too...thanks. I like the fact that they do a lot of higher-end vehicles, so they obviously know how to apply a quality paint job.

I have had very goo luck with Eurocollision. They are right at Colorado Blvd. and C-470. They work on all models and makes, not just European cars.

I've always been treated well by Mike Chavez at Sam's-Oxford just east of Santa Fe. I believe they may be more expensive than other shops but if the other guy is paying...

also they have a rental car Enterprise outlet on site.
