German term or phrase: Spenglerei
Austrian text.
This "Spenglerei" has been built as part of a car dealership complex, together with a new showroom and repair workshop. As previous answers for "Spengler" suggest working with sheet metal, could "Spenglerei" be translated here as "body repair shop"?

agree  BrigitteHilgner: Austrian/Southern German: Spengler = Klempner everywhere else in Germany, in in general is a plumber, but in your context obviously the guy who repairs your car.

neutral  writeaway: seems your answer may be good, but your ref is completely useless and meaningless -you don't have to prove that car body shop exists-your ref should show that this is the correct translation of the German.
