I recently had my 7 series repaired at Spectrum Collision. There was significant damage and the job was done in a reasonable amount of time (2.5 weeks) and executed with perfection. There is absolutely no trace of the damage. My car looks

If you love your vehicle as I do mine, Spectrum Collision is the place to go the next time it requires some T.L.C. Regardless of the nature of the visit (e.g., quick wash, reasonably priced detail or major paint & body repair), I am ALWAYS remembered by name, ALWAYS treated as a valued customer & my vehicle ALWAYS receives the care it needs. Chris, Dan & Tracey assist me regularly & surpass my expectations each time; however, the entire crew know what they are doing and work together as a team. The pride they take in doing a good job, the degree to which they strive for perfection & their ability to understand how important my car is to me is refreshing, unsurpassed in my opinion & just some of the many reasons I sincerely recommend Spectrum Collision Center.

Cons: Can't think of any, seriously.

My wife's immaculate BMW 530xi recently got keyed at Staples Center which was a real bummer. The only good part of it was the great experience we had with Spectrum Auto Collision in Irvine. Just before the damage to the car the BMW Club of Los Angeles had a meeting there where we all got a chance to see the fantastic work they do at Spectrum. The thing that came across was the passion and the incredibly high standards Spectrum had for their customers repair to their cars.

When I had the car repaired after the keying the work was done to the highest standards that BMW owners expect and the service was first rate. The car was repaired when promised and looked even better than new !! Luckily our auto insurance policy paid for all but the deductible and our experience with Spectrum made the low point of the keying of the vehicle into something very positive. I have recomended Spectrum to several friends who have had the same great experience and would have no hesitation in returning for future work, if ever necessary.

8 years ago, my baby sustained bumper damage from being rear-ended. I called my local BMW dealer and was advised to go to Spectrum Collision Center. The insurance claim was handled smoothly and efficiently. My car was returned to me in a timely manner and in pristine condition. I was so impressed with the service provided by Luis Pineda, I filed away his business card in case I needed repair work again in the future. Many miles on the odometer later, my baby has become a project car and in desperate need of a makeover. Of course, there was no question who I was allowing to work on my car. This time I was greeted by Dan Gonzales at Spectrum Auto Spa. And once again, the committment to customer service was obvious from the start. Beginning with an accurate estimate of repair costs, courteous and prompt follow up, and ending in quality workmanship. My car was returned to me in such beautiful condition, I could hardly believe it! I am obliged to write this review because loving BMW owners in So Cal need to know that this is THE place to take your vehicle for collision repair and restoration. I especially recommend those of you who are bringing your older model BMW back to life to give Spectrum a call. You will not be disappointed.

I took my car in with some significant damage to the front end. The technicians at Spectrum thoroughly evaluated the scope of the damage and were careful to repair everything necessary without overdoing it. The final bill was less than the original bid and the car was completed earlier than promised. most importantly, the quality of their work was perfect. The car is showroom ready and the work they did is better than any other repair work I have ever had done on any of my other cars over the past 30 years! While I hope not to need their services again, I will not think twice if i need any other body and collision repairs in the future. thank you very much.

I had my 1990 BMW repainted by Spectrum Collision 8 years ago and it still looks like new. I took my car in last week for some minor scratches on the rear bumper. They gave me an estimate of $393.00 to repaint the bumper. When they got into the job they noticed the bumper was cracked and recommended that the bumper be replaced. Because they guaranty the quality of their work they wanted to do it right. I appreciated that were honest with me and they didn't want to do it half-assed. I gave them a few extra days and the repair was done on time and it looks like new. When I went to pay my bill it was $393.00. They want totally happy customers. I've had other work done at Spectrum Collision and the repairs were always done on time and at the price quoted. Their customer service is excellent and their body and paint technicians are BMW trained. It's as good as it gets.

This is a followup to the review made previously. At Spectrum Collision we strive to put the vehicle back to its pre-accident condition. This particular vehicle took a majority impact "directly" to the rear decklid. When a panel "collapses" like this, there is a chance that the panels adjacent to it will sustain some "indirect" damage. Once the new decklid was replaced, it became evident that there was movement to the rear body panel.
The vehicle was reinspected by the insurance company who agreed with the additional neccesary repairs to return this vehicle back to the proper alignments. the unibody was checked to insure that no further damage had occurred. The end result is a quality repair, not just a repair that looks "cosmeticly acceptable".
This repair will be backed by a lifetime guarantee, not just by the shop but by the BMW certified program guidelines. All of our customers, (no matter what gender) are treated with the utmost respect and dignity.
Our customer satisfaction rating is one of the highest in the industry. As any business owner would want the best service for there customers, Spectrum Collision would like to always address any concerns immediately with the proper solution to any problem.
I invite anyone to see our facility, backed by BMW trained technicians, using factory approved technics, parts and materials.

Thank You!

Pros: BMW certified repairs back by the manufacturer

I took my car for a minor repair on my trunk to specturm collision authorized bmw dealer. My car was bumped on the trunk when someone backed up into my parked car. It had a minor ding on my trunk. They told me they wanted to replace the trunk as insurance is paying for it. Upon serveral arguments I agreed on replacing it. They kept on delaying it making excuse and than finally after 2 and half week asked me to come pick up the car. Lucky for me, My husband had a day off and he went with me for the pick. They were handing over the car to me when my husband spot that they hadn't fix the trunk properly. There were gaps in the tunk alignment. TRYING TO RIP A LADY CUSTOMER! We refused to pick take the car and the next day GM manager called staying that they see the gaps and they agree with us that they repair was not done properly. IT WAS AN OVERSIGHT? the had changed the hinges and still not able to fix it the problem. On closer review they come back to us and state there is a FRAME DAMAGE ON THE CAR?????????? WHAT THE HACK?? a 5mph collision has a frame damage on 5 series???? ridculous.!! they said it must been from before. When i stated I bought the car from IRVIne BMW certified they changed the statement saying its done cause of this freaking accident! Mangers and working crew had different stories to tell. THEY WERE TRYING TO RIP A LADY CUSTOMER OFF!! DISCRIMINATING and not fixing the car in the first place! really!! they were trying to rip me off. CAN ANYONE EXPLIAN ME HOW CAN A 5 SERIES HAVE A FRAME DAMAGE with a DING ON THE TRUNK THE STICK us with a 10,000 bill ?for what a ding on the trunk? THe GM defened by saying that fame had been damage and while the techinician on the car denied still having looked at the car closely and deined that he can confirm if its a frame damage or not? thIS THE SERVICE YOU EXEPCT FOR A CERTIFIED BMW DEALER??

Pros: $10,000 BILL and below par work

Cons: INCOMPETENT WORK STAFF AND A RIP OFF SERVICE

I was recommended by Shelly BMW to go to Spectrum for my auto collision because they were a certified BMW repair facility, as it states in their catalog and practically everywhere in their facility. Well They promised me to have my car repaired in less than a month, but it took 3 months. They Promised that my car will look like it just purchased from the dealer, well it wasn't. My insurance says that because they are NOT a insurance approved facility, they cannot warranty the work. Well I think that says it all.I dont understand how these repair facilties, like Spectrum Collision owned by BMW and Shelly BMW can just rip off customers and make millions of dollars from insurance companies. I am very dissappointed in their service, craftmanship, and overall repairs.

I totally disagree with the comments below, for the most part. In all honesty, yes - they do have an issue with returning phone calls. It can be a bit of a challenge getting through to someone when you're calling to check on the status of your vehicle.

However, let me be the first to state with great authority that the results they produce is well above par.

My first interaction, about one year ago, was when my wife literally drove our BMW 330i under an SUV. Yes, she's alright - BMWs are fantastic in regard to safety standards and saving lives. The total cost for the 330i repairs was just under $16,000.00 but well worth it. I still can't believe that it is the same car. It looks brand new, as if it weren't even in an accident. There isn't a single thing on the car that was repaired that stands out as being repaired. It looks like it came straight off of the showroom floor.

This time around our M3 convertible was backed into in a local parking lot, damaging the rear passenger quarter panel. Although the damage was purely cosmetic it was in an area with multiple angled contours - requiring quite a bit of work to get it right...which they did! Again, as with the 330i, you can't even tell it's been damaged and repaired.

Now, just to put some perspective on my review, although being a man of medicine now, I put myself though college as a ?car guy?. Starting in automotive, moving into auto body, detailing cars on the side for extra funds. Combine my auto experience with a my OCD and my anal-retentive personality, I demand excellence out of everything - myself, my employees, and those who work on my car...Spectrum Collision provides this, therefore making it worth the hassle of phone tag when viewing the bigger picture.

All in all, they truly do provide the very best BMW repair around. Flawless would be a good synonym when describing the end result. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. Oh, and it only took 2.5 weeks - more then acceptable!

Very bad experience and the vehicle is still not repaired. They now claim damage was there when brought in. Moreover, I now know what they charged insurance.. no wonder we all pay so much for insurance. RIP OFF. Keeping it short, we were misled about the time and quality of work and then blamed for some of the repairs they refused to complete (because, as I learned, they would have to outsource). They took a straighforward job and took 8 weeks and screwed it up, then another few days and screwed it up with near tragic results. The only reason I took there was because it was BMW recommended and approved and now I LEAR it is BMW owned. AVOID.

Cons: Ripp off and untruthful

I recently got my 645Ci fixed at Spectrum Collision and I am extremely happy with the results. Not only was there great customer service but when I got my car back it looked BRAND NEW! With as much damage that was done to the car I didn't think there was any hope of my baby being back to perfect but it was! Yes the repairs took awhile but I understand that putting a car back together is a task but it was well worth the wait.
I would recommend Spectrum Collision to anyone with a BMW that needs repairs!

I definitley agree with the man below. I had a small fender bender to the right side of my car, there would be no large accident repairs. You would think it would take a month and a week at most but NO, it took them two months to fix this small problem.They also falsly claimed every week that my car would be done at the end of the week, after the first month, then claiming they are still missing parts. Every week they called telling me my car is in progress and that it would be done at the end of the week, they were definitly wrong. I am a college student, and living an hour and a half walking distance was quite hard, especially when missing the public bus. I HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND spectrum collision center, you will never have your car back.

After a minor accident, I was referred to this place by a local BMW dealership. Spectrum Collisions boasts of its specialty in BMWs and other luxury cars, so you'd ASSUME that they'd treat their service and customers with the same class. You assume wrong. It only took me 4 months, a lot of excuses, and a lot of grief later to see my car again. Even down to the very last day of their promised delivery, they still managed to be "missing a part" and blamed it on the dealership from which they ordered. After months of excuses, I sadly, became immune to them. I got tired of chasing down unreturned calls from my technicians and having them mislead me daily about when the repairs will be finished. Never in my life have I experienced such a horrendous experience from a service-oriented business. Never.
