Mercedes put a bolt on the back of the trunk star and it is secured with a 13mm nut. Just saying.
They also charge me $110 for a piece of fuel line that I bent.

You could get creative with rear view mirror glue (yes, there's such a thing), but then you'd never get it off.

Is there a single good bodyshop in the area? I have yet to find a really good one.

I asked a similar question last summer, people recommended Auto Elite in VA Beach. They did work on a local guy's E36, the pictures looked great, but he totalled the car shortly after, so no up close reviews.

http://www.autoelitellc.com/ - Don't mind the rice on their main page, they're probably just catering to the local market.

My Ride: is a DIYer
Hey guys I had to back out of getting the fenders rolled. That **** is rock hard and I can't get it out. Maybe it will free up when he roll's it, but if it doesn't then I don't know. I've never rolled a fender before but I wanna get that stuff out. I need a lot of pull anyway. I think I'm gonna get a heat gun and try that next.
