Bad luck

Well, I was driving from Florida to Pennsylvania at about 80mph. Fox ran out in front of me in the middle of the night and of course I hit it. Blowing out both fog lights and destroying the bumper. About 80 miles up the road I hit a tractor trailer tire taking all splash guards and the back bumper with it. So in turn I need all the plastic under the car driver side wheel well lining front and rear bumper and all the trim for the front, fog lights and lower bumper grill insert. Anyone know a good website to get all this stuff?

ouch, i actually have tears in my eyes right now from that carnage...

my first search would be a junk yard maybe. looking for an e38 that had some side collision or something. obviously you're gonna require some paint work as well on any part you get. But it might be worth a day trip to a junkyard to have a look see...

or try ebay, just did a quick search on ebay for E38 bumper and there is a bunch of hits on it.
