E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Hi all, can you please help me identify what this front bumper/valance combo is?

Also, my understanding from reading the forums is that I'll have to use the euro conversion on the rear to get an aftermarket bumper to fit properly. Is that correct? If so, does anyone have any leads on the parts for the conversion that aren't $800+?

Thank you!

Welcome to Bimmerfest!

You'll have to show us a picture for us to identify the bumper.

That's an 325eS front airdam the 325iS front airdam as you can see the slight difference is the two extra slots under the center section.

Thanks for the response! So, before I go spending hundreds of dollars for the euro bumper conversion, I need the conversion on front and back if I want to get rid of the US 5MPH bumpers, right? If so, do you all have any places to get them cheaper than ECS? Running about $750 rear and $650 front.

Might try Scheidmann, I sourced all of mine via junkyards while living in Germany. Used in Europe is tough these days as E30's are becoming rapidly extinct except to enthusiasts. You could buy used from UK their market is semi reasonable but the exchange rate kills you and shipping.
