    My hood got slightly bent. Excellence auto collision in toronto recommends a full new hood piece.
    Can anyone recommend another reliable collision shop in which to get a quote in Toronto?
    Thanks

    I expect more Torontonians would see this if you posted in the Canada section instead.

    Excellence does pretty good work, and is Tesla's only (as far as I know) approved shop in the Toronto area. I think Aluminum is hard to work with and on a big flat surface like the hood, any imperfections would be very noticeable. What are they asking for the new hood piece just out of curiosity?

    Seems a bit steep, but I imagine that's painted and installed. Wonder if there is anything like "junk yard" parts from wrecked Model S cars yet?

    There should be given the frequency with which they're totaled for cosmetic damage, particularly in the rear. I'd guess the economics of tracking one down would be difficult given the low volume, though. It might be more feasible in the Bay Area where there's a more suitable density.
