Absolutly the best SMALL body shop in town. These folks are artisans at what they do and you too will become a stock raving fan of David Bosada and his crew as I am.
I'm an INSURANCE AGENT and I've been sending my clients to Discount Auto Body Shop for years and here's why. They can usually repair your damaged bumper, keyed paint job and kicked in door under most people's collision deductible. But that doesn't mean there is less workmanship and quality! Oh heck no my friends. His uber low overhead means you save the money. No waiting area with flat screen TV's or Keurig coffee makers. No FLUFF means they can hit it and get it.
He can also do the BIG repairs too so instead of having to wait for your favorite body shop to "get around" to your repairs David and "los hombres" can get you back on the road in no time.
I wish I had HOURS and HOURS to tell you about his attention to detail and his passion for his work. Oh me? Yes, I'm a customer too and he's worked on many of my cars and my Harley too!
I was a bit nervous to get my body work done at a local shop since my insurance was covering it anyway. So I checked with the big shops first (Service King, Caliber Collision, Ellis & Salazar) and they were all so unfriendly and uncaring about my situation. I had no desire to do business with any of them, so I took it to Discount Body Shop at the recommendation of other Yelp reviews. And I'm glad I did. David and his team were a pleasure to work with. They went above and beyond to make sure that I was satisfied with the work, and I couldn't be happier. It also feels good to be giving back to the Austin community by doing business with a locally-owned business. David dealt directly with my insurance company and it was seamless from start to finish. He even gave me a discount on my deductible. I know sometimes people get a bit suspicious of 5-star rave reviews on Yelp because they think that they are fake. But I can assure you that I'm a real customer and I have no relationship to the owner. I'm just a very satisfied customer who wants to let others know about my experience with Discount Body Shop. Again, I couldn't be happier. They were excellent, courteous, prompt and super easy to work with. What more can you want?

These guys are amazing. The best quality at a price you can't beat. Here's why:
1) I'm a co-founder of Silvercar, an all-Audi car rental company. We have over 100 silver Audi A4s at the Austin Airport, and naturally, through the course of renting, they get everything from small dings and chips to big accidents. We went through a number of shops before we found Discount Body Shop. They are AWESOME. Honest, thorough, trustworthy, and willing to go the extra mile for you. We've given Discount Body Shop all our business ever since and we've been impressed every step of the way. Hazel is the man over there!
2) I wanted to put new wheels on my personal car, but before doing so, I wanted to paint the brake calipers red. Sounds simple but my request was pretty complicated as I wanted the name of the car preserved and painted in white on the calipers as well. Naturally, I went to Hazel at Discount Body Shop. I left him the car and 4 new wheels I purchased on the internet. He coordinated the entire process from drop-off to pick-up. That included sourcing the paint and the painter (brake calipers run incredibly hot so you need special paint that won't melt/bleed as you use the brakes), sequencing the job itself, even going down to Discount Tire down the street himself to balance the tires, get special nitrogen caps that weren't included with the wheels when I purchased them (but were required for wheels/tires to function properly), and even put on a new wheel lock/bolt set to protect my new rims. All completed in just 3 days, and all done at an incredible price in the hundreds that would have cost me thousands anywhere else not to mention the added hassle of having to try and manage it all myself.
So there you have it. I take my girlfriend's car here, my sister's, all our Audi's and my own personal car. Every time. These guys are 5 STARS ALL THE WAY!
This place should get an award! Unbelievable customer service, reasonable prices, and quick turnaround. I will be recommending discount body shop to my friends for sure.
