Lost all engine covers =(

Hey guys, wazz up,

The other day on a freeway, a cat crossed and I hit it with my bimmer, its a 1995 2 door, e36, manual, red, a beuty with only 65 kmiles, almost mint (only after the accident)... anyways I stepped on brakes before that so car went down and I hited worse... anyways I broke left headlight, and lost a few plastics... I need if anyone can help me with that, cuase I looked at the forum, google and couldnt find any pic, I even looking on the street but the 3-4 ones I found they didnt have the plastics either...

so I know I lost:

the air duct of the left brake (cuase temp sensor was hanging).
The first plastic small plastic under radiator I didnt loose, it was still hanging from one screw...

everything else I lost, and I dont know if it was 1 or 2 plastics... anyways I would really appreciate any help on this, maybe pictures, so I can look up the PN, or if u have even better.

Thank you to all the Bimmer fans! the best car ever made...

First they aren't engine covers if they not covering the engine. Secondly, just post some pictures from a few angles of the damage and we will tell you what is missing

Well, the underbody panels protect the engine from beneath, so it's not the biggest stretch in the world.

My fender liners are good enough but would look better if replaced. That parts car my dad is getting may have good ones I can use. Pretty sure the m3 bumper splash panels will be different than non m tho.
However not having splash panel/tray under motor is nice sometimes, for instance helped me realize my coolant was leaking slowing on the rad and that my oil pan was leaking.

Fender liners are pretty cheap from Pelican. I installed an aluminum underpanel after I tore mine out from curbing. Since my car is a salvage, it was a tough install, but it's quite nice, now.

Okay, I'll ask the obvious. How big was that cat? A headlight and plastics?

Maybe not, seems cougars, panthers, and jaguars are all native to the area. I bet camping is an adventure there.

You guys are so funny I was cracking with your commets lol, anyways your are right they are the undercovers, radiator cover, oil pan cover whatever. And yeah it was a freaking big cat apparently.. lol plus I was driving fast... anyways how can I upload a pic? Im gonna see if I can figure it ouy, in the meantime, what I lost is the plastics that cover the engine from the bottom except for the radiator under cover which I have, and the air duct for the left brake that I'll order it ASAP. So its probably 1 or 2 undercovers I think..

Here's the diagrams for some of the underbody covers from realoem.com

You can look for the parts from Pelican or one of the online places pretty easily. Good luck!

A couple sites to use to upload pictures:

www.photobucket.com (requires free registration)
www.tinypic.com (no registration needed)

Just copy and paste the [IMG] links.

Fog light, head light, tail light, reverse light. As long as it's exterior it's not my posterior touching the interior.
