    Had my 320 touring for 13 years. Bought from main dealers at 18 months old. Last week wife reversed over a kerb and pulled the front drivers side mud flap off, along with part of the wheel arch/sill. Turns out that the flaps were fastened on with self tappers when new. This let in the rot and now there's nothing left but paint and underseal holding the corners together, on both sides! My question is can you get replacement pieces of body for these places? and if so where from.
    Any help appreciated.

    its quite common for the E36s to get rusty front wings amongst other things

    you can get replacement wings from a breakers yard and if you look hard enough you might get one in the same colour
    they are not expensive at all and the front wings are bolted on so you can change them yourself
    its not a big job unless you have to get them painted but even then any decent bodyshop should have no problems at all

    Thanks for that Disco, I took the wings off and the bottom anchor points are totally rotted away. Can you get pieces to patch up the main body frame or will I have to make up the pieces myself?
