95 E36 Kidney Grill

Hey, I have a 95 325i and my kidney grill clips broke off and i wanted to replace both if them. I made a big mistake buying a $30 pair off Ebay and I currently have them on with zip ties since they didn't fit properly. Anyway someone can help me find some OEM ones? Thanks

There are 2 types of grilles for e36. Prefacelift and facelift. 95 actually has both in that yr. Early are 92-95, late is 95-99.. Early are largerand more square. Late are rounded and more like e46.
Since early wont fit in a late, you probablyhave a early style grille with the wrong (late) style grilles. Just buy prefacelift ones.

Just get ebay ones.. Ecs and bav amd any other probably get from the same supplier for things like this. Plus, generally, even cheap onea do notbreak unless put into a situation where metel bends (would break any brand plastic).

You can look up the part numbers on realoem.com or bmwfans.info then Google for a source.

FCP Euro has an aftermarket brand available as well as genuine BMW.
