Can anyone recommend a good bodyshop in Derby?

Hi AOers,

During the bad snow a few weeks back, my Father-in-Law's 946 Spider decided to slide off the drive by itself and partially demolished a dry stone wall!

There is some damage to the rear bumper and we're not really sure where to take it that will do a good job and not rip us off.

Anyone got any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

Hi matey, sorry to hear about you in laws Spider Best place I've taken my Alfas to is Martin Buxtons in Horsley Woodhouse Martin Buxton Paint and Body Repairs - Derbyshire

Did a cracking job on my old Moon Blue GT, resprayed drivers door, front wing and bonnet for under 500 colour match was perfect even though many people told me how hard it was to match. mrsgtlewi has used them a few times on her old golf when people seemed to have a habit of driving into her

Looks like the Spider is going to Martin Buxtons in Horsley Woodhouse. Got a very reasonable quote so my Father-in-Law is a happy man!

Thanks mrgtlewi (and to everyone else who kindly replied)
