E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

From what I gather so far, it's doable. Would like a bit more firm info on it though!

Looks like no responses but to piggy bak off this question, what is the correct name for the part you are looking to replace? I ask because when I search "valence" I always get the small strip that attaches to the bottom of the bumper or rather the bottom of what you are calling the valence. Do you have a part number for it by chance?

Its either Front Valance or air dam. The small plastic piece I believe you are talking about is the lip. If you search that on ebay it will come up with the wrong results. e30tech actually has a "front valance thread" you can search for, shows different examples of valances on plastic and metal bumpers. Hope I helped, I'm newish to the e30 scene aswell.
