I have a question for you guys!

Long story short my whole grill fell out driving down the road in my 95 540i! Here's the question what is the metal grille part called that the kidneys set down in that runs underneath the heads lights! Its basically your whole grille I looked for it online but it just brought up the kidneys and things?

Go to realoem.com, and you will have everything you need: part number, description, etc.

How did that whole piece fall out while you were driving (and what kind of driving were you doing)? IIRC, it's held in place by four clips.

No worries just hit the yard or find a member who's parting a e34.
Just make sure you know which grill you have.

Wide or narrow grill.

Yeah you're right Just making sure OP remembers this when he goes hunting.
Nothing like getting happy when you find that much needed part
only to find out it's the right part for the wrong car.

Happy hunting OP

Yea I looked up the part number on realoem.com and found the grille piece for maybe 30 bucks not OEM but good enough its better then $130 for factory OEM lol I want the best for my car but 130 bucks is a little much compared to something just as good for 30 bucks and will fit and look the same!

The term he was looking for was " nose panel "..

any v8 model has wide grill - M5 too i think

525 in 95 also got wide grill

88-94 models other wise were narrow grill

im 99% sure, i have been searching for a clean black wide grill hood for 8 months gonna just go CF
