    ive owned above motor for a while now.

    some one smashed my fron end during bad weather and drove off,ive been given a quote that was quite expensive from the bodyshop.

    i think i can almost half this bill by buying the parts myself off ebay.

    i need front bumper and all trim headlamps and indicators.

    the thing is that on ebay most are listed as 93 to 98 not 99 like mine.
    and most are listed for 316/318.
    is there a difference between these and mine ?

    You can use the front bumper,nosepanel and headlights from any E36 bmw.The indicators and wings will need to come from a coupe or cabriolet....saloon/touring/compact ones won't fit.
    Also if I were you I would try get nosepanel/wings from a post 96 car as these are facelift like yours is

    I bought an m3 replica bumper off ebay in october for £119 it came with all bumper inserts and splitter. All it needed was spraying. (stay away from fibre glass, Get plastic) What type of bumper is it?

    Thats about as bad as what mine was. cheaper to buy a new bumper than it was to get the other repaired. You thought about M3 front bumper? It will go straight on.

    Thats very similar to the one i bought, but that looks like it has the bumper mouldings and splitter already moulded in, There should be one with all the mouldings seperatly.

    thats a great offer but are you sure matthew it might be hard to wrap but you could just stick in a coulple of bin bags??,plus it would mean waiting in for courior.

    Its cool mate I dont mind to help a fellow bimmer man out. You have the choice of two. Both will require painting though but have all the trim etc .
