Go to r3vlimited.com and read the write up Jordan wrote about doing it properly. Decide from there.

Unless you have SOME bodywork skills, don't try the whole plastic bumper thing.

I know people that have taken my writeup to bodyshops and asked for a quote on labor and paint. The lowest I've heard was about $1800.

I don't think any of you realize just how much TIME and SKILL is involved.

He's right, and I've gone to a lot of body shops around, that specialize in the older BMW's, so they really know their crap, to going around to backyard style shops that don't charge that much less cause they think its a huge job. (Which it is)

All in all, its gonna cost you, and the price Jordan said, is reasonable, very.
