Restoration without voiding the vehicle's warranty


D-Patrick Motoplex on Green River Road is the only collision center in the country certified by all five manufacturers to restore your vehicle to factory specs. When we fix a customer's car, the warranty is not affected and there is no loss to the car's value. Certified repair quality goes over and above insurance minimum standards and is guaranteed by the manufacturer and D-Patrick.

Our extensively trained technicians make history


The D-Patrick Motoplex Certified Collision Center in not your average body shop. Our certified technicians undergo at least four years of training and spend an additional six to eight weeks every year training in the latest repair techniques and proper reconstruction methods for each luxury brand. A few years ago, our technicians performed the first-ever BMW full side panel rebuild in the United States. The BMW Company flew in five engineers from Germany to observe the process.

Our cutting edge technology recreates assembly lines


The "rebuild" process after a collision involves rolling jigs (specialized movable benches on which the high-end European cars are mounted). Each bench has adjustable mounting points that secure the vehicle so every part is in the correct position. The jigs, made by the French company Celette, cost about $150,000 each and allow our certified technicians to recreate a European high line car factory assembly line. Each vehicle has a unique and accurate mounting schematic provided by the manufacturer.

Accurate restoration down to the last millimeter


The manufacturer allows just one millimeter of tolerance. Once the jig is arranged according to factory specs, each specific vehicle model fits perfectly. People falsely believe that once a vehicle has been structurally damaged, it never drives right again. That's simply not true here. The jigs are set up on "zero tolerance according to factory specs. In fact, after the repairs, the car is actually reassembled straighter than when it was on the original assembly line.

We maintain your vehicle's integrity by removing obstacles


Unlike regular body shops, the D-Patrick Motoplex Certified Collision Center does not bend or work around other car components such as wheels, struts and motors when making a repair. Most of the components are removed to allow for repair and reassembly. Each part is tagged and tracked to avoid any mix-ups and maintain vehicle integrity. This is the only way to perfectly repair the vehicle back to original factory specs.

High quality workmanship for your high quality car


Whether it's an Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche or Volkswagen, only the highest quality materials and workmanship go into a luxury German car. That's why D-Patrick has invested in specialized equipment and materials for making certified repairs. The shop includes high-tech aluminum welders for installation of aluminum parts that cannot be repaired and must be replaced. These welders are miniature versions of the robot welders in European factories.

Paint that is safe, waste-free & a perfect match


The Germany luxury vehicles manufacturers will not certify repairs that use lesser equipment. The shop also uses waterborne paint in reconstructive finish work. European manufacturers have used this water-based paint for a decade and requires its use for certified repairs. The paint has no poisonous chemicals or solvents and produces virtually no waste, making it environmentally friendly. It is made to European specifications, which guarantees a perfect color match.
