Front air dam

Looking to either have the front air dam cleaned up and repainted, or just replaced. Most vehicles are cheaper just to replace. What are we finding with z3's?

Bottom of front AD is worn from repeated scuffles with steep parking lot approaches and parking barrier curbs.

Can I buy a regular OR an "M" part for this?

I saw replacement dams starting around $200 on E-bay and other sites. I had the same issue with mine. The people who had it before me busted up the nose pretty good. But since the car was getting repainted anyway, I spent a couple hours and glasses/sanded the lower lip back into shape prior to taking it to be painted. I also came across "Duraflex". They have some pretty cool looking dams for about $500. Good luck.

Mine was a bit bent up by the previous owner, but the shop was able to fix it and repaint it. Cost about $250 to fix and paint. You could get an M bumper but you'd lose your fog lights.

Before I bought my current Z3 I looked at a 2001 Z3 Sports Pkg that needed a new "bumper cover". I took it to a reputable body shop and they quoted: (Feb 2014)
Parts & Materials $442
Paint & Labor $487
Tax $ 35
-------------------------
Total $964

Thought you might like the info.
