Cheap E30 front fenders?

I've never really gone hunting for replacement fenders so I don't know if this is a good deal or not, or how well these fit seeing as they are not Genuine BMW parts , but $100 for a brand new primed fender seems like a decent deal. Only problem is only ships within the US, but shipping is free...

And they currently have a 10% discount code... two fenders for $135 shipped is worth a shot even if they don't fit perfectly... again shipping is only in the US.

There was a place in the GTA that sold them back in the day.

I bought two for my e30 and had them painted, they weren't perfect fitment and the metal was thinner than OEM. But for the price and considering that a rust free oem fender would probably harder to find they aren't too bad and much better than I had anyways.

This was 5+ years ago, so things might have changed.

I did the same thing ..Try a paint / body shop supplier ... I bought (2) new aftermarket steel fenders for my e30 318is for $80 / ea - I just wanted the lower section to use as patch repair panels. This was a few years ago, but I imagine they could still be available.

A lower patch isn't available - that's why I bought the whole fender. I cut it at the side moulding line and welded it in to fix my rusty fenders- I didn't want to have to replace and paint the whole fender.

crosscanadaparts.com they have some E30 body panels. fit won't be prefect but better then rust. not sure if they still offer fenders.

Croscanadaaparts has fenders or at least they did. passenger fender fitment is problematic. the inner fender mold that mates to the body doesn't match the mold of the body. Sheet metal will be required to be cut to fit. I think they are around 100.00 or so locally. they are pressed in Tiawan

There's a place on Speers in Oakville (near 3rd line) that carries aftermarket ones for 75$ per side. Can't remember the name for the life of me, but they even warrant fit issues. I ended up finding an OEM one for the smae price, but it was a good deal.
