Portland Collision Shop Recommendation

Just bought a 2018 M2 from Portland BMW and the only imperfection was five indentations in the rear bumper where someone tapped it with their license plate frame/screws.

What is the best body shop in the Portland metro area for a repair like this? I want the paint and finish to match perfectly.

Active Auto Body did a good job matching my HS M2C. I checked on the BMW app while they were working on it and they even moved my car inside every night.

Kuni BMW has a certified BMW shop in Beaverton. I got nicked on the bumper several years ago in my red 328 and they did an absolutely perfect job, and were very easy to deal with.

Thanks for the recommendations, guys. I decided to go with Active Auto Body. Their attention to detail was impressive and Joel took good care of me when I brought the car in. When I had Kuni look it over, the estimator was pretty brusque and said they absolutely could not fix the existing bumper (look at the picture in my first post - Seriously?) and they would have to buy a whole new bumper skin. I asked for a quote to just fix the existing bumper, but he refused and said it would be $1,700 for a new skin painted and installed. Active Auto Body agreed to fix my existing bumper for basically half that price. Said it is a simple job. I haven't seen the result yet, but I don't think I'll be disappointed.

What you say is correct. Kuni won't fix it... They replace it which is why I went to them. However, I was rear ended and another body shop was going to fix it (basically heat it and reform the plastic) but I wasn't paying for it so I took it to Kuni who just replaces the entire thing with new OEM parts. If it was me paying for it, I would have done what you did too.
