    Im looking for some help from you guys . Ive got a E46 ( W reg ) 316 SE saloon as my run about car. Ok its a bit under powered but its just to run about in so im not that bothered. How ever going round a round about before christmas the back end swung out after hitting black ice and ended up putting the car into a fence. I have replaced the wing and indactors and the bonnet is getting fixed next week but my question is :

    Are there diffrent front bumpers for these cars - all the ones i have seen have square fog lights where as mine has oval ( like an easter egg ) fog lights and i cant find these bumpers anywhere ? Any ideas ?

    Sorry not had time to get a picture up.

    I think it might be the 2nd picture - just like the sqare ones ( not right at the end like circle ) but they are oval instead of circle. Ill try find a picture on google.

    £390 - for a front bumper?? Could by a car for that haha. Has it got to be the aero front bumper that goes back on or would a started e46 ( with square fogs ) or an M3 bumper or anything else fit?
