Lightbulb Recommend paint job in MA or RI?

Black 03 325xi needs hood painted. For some reason hood is faded bad but rest of the car looks great. Any recommendations in MA or RI would be greatly appreciated.

Included a image of hood (taken while installing new windshield).

Best job will usually be from a BMW approved body shop. It will be pricey but they will renew the corrosion protection and use the correct paint. Just call your dealer and find out who they use.

Contact members of the local BMWCCA chapter. Every chapter has a website. Google "BMW CCA #####" where "#####" is your zip code. Members are more than happy to provide recommendations.

I've had good work done by Sublime Restorations. They used to be in Rowley, but they're now just over the line in NH. They're building an E46 M3 Touring. :-)
