E30 Front Fenders

Because of the urgency of this I figured post it here. Im looking for a new front drivers side fender or a great condition one if anyone has, please PM me.

Also was wondering what the general consensus is on aftermarkets ones? Are they just as good or is fitment/quality an issue with this part? Also whats avg. price on them?

I think this is a common need. Where is a good place to get new aftermarket fenders?

I got mine from cross canada. Definitly NOT the best fitment but for the price, hey what the heck. Even if you spend time to fit it, I dont think its gonna ever be comparable to an OEM fender. aftermarket fenders generally go for 80~90$ each

^ Rudy would you say it was worth it , or afterwords would you think getting an OEM used one off a car ( in good condition) and having it prepped/repaired , painted and put on is a better choice?

I have after market fenders on my e30 sourced by Euro Design - http://www.eurodesigncanada.com. The quality is good; not as good as OEM but good. It takes moderate massaging to make it fit great but its nothing extraordinary.

Having said that; a rust free OEM used fender would be a safer bet but good luck finding one.

Put it this way, you can always tell the aftermarket from the OEM...No matter for much time you spend fitting it!

Me too, i got aftermarket fenders for the Benz...and i almost regret it, but i have to see how the finished product looks, so far its a big

i'v been told by a few people that the aftermarket ones are never as good as oem fenders, you can allways tell the difference, so i would just get some oem fenders shiped here from the states where there not rusted to hell. spend the extra $ then you know you wont have a problem with them.
