Front bumper replacement
Hey guys,
I need some help with finding a replacement bumper for my E36 coupe. It has some irreparable damage on the front left side and could use a whole new piece. Any suggestions for where to purchase one at reasonable cost if a friend will be helping me to do the manual labor to replace it? Recently moved back to PA so I'm not familiar with body shops. Thanks! :)

You can get M3 replica bumpers from DDM Tuning for very little money. The quality is just as good as OEM, but they're way less expensive. Their customer service is very spotty, but the products are usually good. Alternatively, you can always find a used non-M bumper from a parts car on Craigslist or at a junk yard for pretty little money. Either way though, you'll have to find a body shop to paint whatever you buy. Installation is very easy - just gotta make sure you still have all the little screws to secure the underbody and fender liners.

This is where I got mine. You'll need to trade off price with shipping distance. These come in a big box and the shipping is a big chunk of the cost.

EBay also has quite a selection of them also, right around $100...just a suggestion.
