Repainting/bodyshop advice needed!!

I realize this might technically fall under the Detailing forum, the exposure and responses are obviously greater here.

In about 3 weeks I will be getting my 126 completely repainted. Can't wait!! However, I am having some difficulty selecting a bodyshop to do it. I don't know what to look for. I am also not sure how picky I should be about what paint they use. I have been to two bodyshops and they both look like nice places. One uses PPG, the other DuPont. Will it matter which paint goes on my car? Should I find a shop that uses OEM Glasurit??

I want nothing short of a first rate paint job. I will absolutely not settle for a we-need-to-get-this-one-out-of-the-way paint job. If anyone has any advice on choosing a bodyshop or which paint to use, it will be greatly appreciated.
