Established in 2005- DTM Autobody® has grown into one of the most recognized brand names in the automotive industry. DTM originated from one of our earlier brands- DTM Autohaus. What was once a European parts store, is now a full service body shop, specializing in custom body and paint.
Our recognition comes with the support of the automotive media. Magazine publications have continued to feature our work in magazines such as European Car, Super Street, D Sport & PAS Magazine.

DTM does awesome work! Their body work has consistently been featured in magazines and has won awards at car shows for years. That's gotta say something. It's family-owned, so you can bet that if you aren't satisfied, there isn't any corporate red tape to cut through to get your concerns addressed. The girls in the front office are super knowledgeable, friendly, and straightforward.
I've been going to DTM for years and can understand where the criticism comes from: When it comes to body work at a premium shop like DTM, there are three aspects to consider: Good, fast, and cheap. You can only have two. Expect all three, and you're dreaming.
So if you have some body work you need done (collision repair or otherswise), and you want an award-winning quality job, DTM is a great place to go.
The work here is extremely poor and the staff will literally treat you like you just insulted their mother if you call them on it. I would give them zero stars if it were possible.
The paint work they did on my Lexus had a LOT of dust in the base and clear coat. I honestly don't think they wipe the pieces down after prepping them before paint. Also, the color was not a match as it was a darker white than the rest of the car. This was noticeable even in low-light conditions. After some arguing (they will at first completely deny that anything you are pointing out is AT ALL a legitimate concern) and double-checking they were using the correct paint code, they reluctantly agreed to repaint the parts, and the result was again very poor. Worse still, they treated me like I was completely crazy for pointing out these flaws and claimed that inconsistencies are normal for every body shop and that this is "the best anyone can do," and a myriad of other excuses, all of which I personally know could not be further from the truth. I hate to admit this, but I paid in full, gave up and walked out. They are that good at bullying you into thinking somehow you have unreasonable expectations or are giving them a hard time for no reason.
Their prices are higher than average (I originally assumed this meant they would deliver higher than average work) and I ended up having to get the pieces repainted by another body shop so they would not look out of place on the car, putting me out quite a bit of money. The best thing I can tell you is to closely inspect work they have done on someone else's car before ever using them. I wish I had done this. One look and you will never even think of going to them.
I really cant believe the work that DTM has accomplished with my dream car. I was recently rear ended by some dude on his phone going at least 35 mph while I was at a complete stop. Already devastated by the fact that ive only had my car for 3 months I didnt want to deal with insurance. Thankfully Maggie and Narita helped me through that. Contacting both insurance companies for me so they could work on the car as soon as possible and get the best pricing for me. And my favorite part, Kelvin and Long worked wonders in both ordering the parts I wanted and getting my request done. My trunk was probably the hardest request but they exceeded all my expectations ! Ill let the photos of my Evo do the talking now. They have earned a lifetime customer and I always recommend DTM to all my car enthusiast friends !
I haven't had such an enjoyable experience with an auto body like this before.
I was paying out of pocket so they worked hard to keep costs down and quality up.
I had them replace the front of my S2000 and modify the hood, along with color matching the metallic paint.
It all looked factory fresh. They paid great attention to detail and turned my dream into a reality with this car.
It's like a brand new car, everyone asks me what kinda Honda is that???
This place definitely deserves the ratings they're getting, they're awesome! This place was recommended by a friend of mine. First off, I'm a college student who works part-time where I get paid minimum wage. So clearly, this mission was never going to be easy in the first place.
For months I've been looking for a place that could help me out on finding rims for a knockoff price and when I came here, I was not disappointed. Other places were offering me prices too far out of my price range. I'm very cautious when it comes to spending hundreds of dollars but I trusted this place.
I came in on a Monday. I was helped out by Maggie, who was super friendly. She gave me the whole low down on what was going down and how much I was going to have to pay. Before I came in, the order was already placed, she just had to get a confirmation on the measurements I needed. That's great customer service! Even the communication between workers are great. The size I needed was a little off but she contacted the person who had taken the order (who was not there that day) and they responded right away to changing it to the right size and still have it here by Friday.
The total price was about $550. Great deal for the rims I was looking for. I didn't even have to pay in full the first time I came in to place the order, I just had to put a small deposit down. For what I'm paid, that was a stress reliever. Maggie even let me make payments until everything was paid off.
The best part was that I had asked a general question on what the shop specialized in because I recently got rear-ended. It was the first time I had ever been in any kind of accident so I had completely no idea what to do. Not only did Maggie explain the process to me, she even told me she would help me find out more about my insurance if I was having a hard time.
Definitely recommending this place. The people are friendly and easy to work with.
