Good to hear you've had it taken care of and are satisfied.
Recommend a body shop? Hell no! In South Florida, most operate by the principal "as long as it's in the ballpark", IE it looks attached and somewhat like the color it should be, they're golden.
The MB of Ft. Lauderdale "offsite Marrone Collision Center" that totalled my 1,315 mile 2005 was closed as part of State Farm's lawsuit against Autonation settlement.
The Coral Gables MB dealer's Silver Arrow Collision Center took a year to get my car water tight and driver's door closing correctly after replacing the door skin due to a very low speed bump into the door. It was on the character line so they figurered they couldn't pull it out. Sure, I LOVED slamming my door 3 times each entry like a $300 Camry so it would actually shut. ;-)
If anything happens to my car, even a small bumper repair, I think I'm gonna ship it up north.
