05-10-2006, 01:54 PM
Hey guys,

I have a '97 328is. A few weeks ago I had an accident. The car is hit in the driver-side front corner. I want to get everything fixed but don't want to pay the ridiculous dealer cost for parts. (I don't want to get aftermarket) Looking for used/new OEM parts.

I need:

-driver-side fender w/liner
-nose panel w/kidney grilles
-front bumper (entire assembly)
-fan shroud
-headlight (drv-side)
-clear corner light (drv-side)
-and whatever other misc shit in between...

Also looking for an M3 kit (front, sides, rear)

Anyone know of any used parts dealers?... BMW scrap yards, etc..?
I've tried a couple... no luck. Front end parts are hard to find. :(

Also, anyone know of any bodyshops that do good work for a fair price?

Thanks guys

I have a used passenger side '97 fender from an M3 if anyone needs one. 100 bucks.

That's what I needed too and had bought the pair to get the driver side. And I had given up on looking and was gonna suck up the dealer cost but thankfully found this pair.

i think your best bet is to go aftermarket. It wont run you much .

no aftermarket parts (read post). They rust easy and the plastic is too flimsy. Not to mention the thickness of the panel is thinner than stock...to save on costs.

Only OEM :)
