Unfortunately I came to meet the folks at ISM because my car was smashed in a parking lot. Fortunately they were honest, kind, and demonstrated the kind of professionalism that anyone would hope for in an auto body mechanic. My car looks so wonderful and there were no issues or problems with ISM's work. I think the world of Giovanni and his amazing staff (Sabrina in the office is really awesome). They were MOST helpful and I couldn't of asked for a better experience out of this bad situation. I am ALWAYS going back there even if I move far away. THANKS ISM!!!

As the stars say, ISM is about as good as it gets for auto body repair work in San Francisco. My E46 BMW M3 has an unfortunate tendency to be hit while parked in San Francisco. And while none of the damage has been major, the repair work could easily have been screwed up. Thankfully, the good ISM folks are perfectionists and I've always had my car returned to me with flawless work done.
I really appreciate the professionalism at this shop -- they're not the cheapest, but certainly not the most expensive. They estimate accurately for the work they do and they don't set out to rip you off. Highly recommended and while I hope I never have to do any more work to the M3, I'll definitely turn to them if and when it happens.
Traci P. - Yelp Review
International Sports Motors and Antonio is "as good as it gets" for me when it comes to auto body work. Someone hit the side of my Black 325ci and Antonio worked quickly with the insurance company to repair the car to perfect condition.
Antonio gave a detailed estimate, explained the work carefully and kept me informed every step of the way. The team doesn't just slap some bondo on the side, they go out of their way to make it look like new. This may cost a little more than average, but it is money well spent, especially if you are a perfectionist like I am.
I would definitely take my car there again.
