You can take it to the dealer and they will give you a detailed estimate. You can then compare it to the one the shop gives you. SF will let you use whoever you want. I think they'll cut you a check for the amount of the estimate less your deductible and let you fix it however you want. I knew a shop that was highly recommended and the fact that it was already a "select" shop just made things go faster.
As yours is drivable you can take your time. I would get a State Farm shop to quote it as well as a dealer like was said above - if there is something hidden they are most likely to find it. If you know a good shop that you trust then you can let them quote it and even use them. The quotes I had from both shops actually had M-B parts #'s on them so you could check them out using EPC as well.
I'm picking mine up Friday so I'll let you know how it turns out. I'm having the hood painted as well while they're working in it.
