Got bumper?

Someone just rear-ended me last night, and my bumper got a little crunched. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement? Do you think BMW has old parts? It's a 1989 325I - bronzite colored - any suggestions will be appreciated

try your local salvage yard... that is one of the most popular colors you might get lucky and find a mint one that doesnt even have to be painted!!!
are you sure that your bumper is damaged because it looks more like the metal below the bumper is dented?? and thats a bodyshop job..

How do I get ahold of STEVE so I can check with him? yes the metal is dented, but as may note when you click on the picture, there are two plastic pieces hanging down.

Steve doesn't have an extra one. and i really dont think he'd ship one anyway.

+1 on salvage yard. I paid $25 for one there in perfect condition, and the color even matched!

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines
