1986 M6

I have a 1986 M6 (E24, Euro). It's in fantatsic condition with the exception of the front bumper damage I did when I rolled into an SUV during rush hour the other day. The body shops around here in Arkansas have no clue how to find parts. Any advice from anyone? I might be fixing it, getting an Inspection I, and selling it. I'm not sure if I can stand to sell it though because I love this car. Need to fix it either way! I think the body is the same as the 635csi from 1986.

Needed: front bumper and impact strip, header panel, right headlight grill, right and left center grills, bumper filler, and lower air dam / front bumper lower balance.

Many thanks for any assistance or referrals. I've always kept this vehicle in perfect condition and fixed everything as needed and I don't plan to stop now. Some day I will upgrade but for now, the 1986 M6 is all I can afford and it remains one of the best looking cars on the road.

Dealer is useless because of the rarity of the vehicle. It's Euro and generally about the same age as the person you get on the phone at the dealer's shop. They don't know diddly.

Get part numbers and give them to the dealer...then they don't have to think. I am pretty sure there is nothing special about the body on the Euro spec M6s.
