Well it happened the other day, slow bump in the rear from another car. Minor scratches and maybe a crack in the rear bumper. Also a scratch on the silver (plastic) diamond shaped piece on the rear of the car. Any suggestion on where to take the car to get it repaired. Fortunately, the other driver has insurance and took full responsibility since I was stopped. Not sure if it can be repaired or will need to be replaced.

Suggestions or recommendation appreciated. Thanks.

Not sure where to go in the SD area. In San Jose, the place I went to has a guy who can rebuild fiberglass so that it looks better than new...

(It's just recently changed names, was L&M, now Fix, in south San Jose)

I agree with ct. Fix (L&M) is a good choice. The shop owner also has a Karma and loves the car.

I have also used Preferred Image in Los Gatos. They specialize in high-end luxury and sports cars. Maserati, Ferrari, Lambo, Tesla, etc.

The biggest issue with whomever you chose is their paint booth technology. Applying Dupont's water-based paint (especially if it has recycled mirror particles imbedded) is not something every body shop can successfully deal with. Mending Fiberglas is the easy part.

Thanks all, I will see what I can find here in San Diego. I have a few options to talk to and see what they have done before.
