Hello, :)

I bought my car and I knew it was somewhat crashed in the front. I'm one of those people that hates mechanics because they do the job as fast as they can just so it can be done, but not with a lot of quality. Does any one know what tools, or ways I can use to make this part look more origianl. I know it will never be the same, but I just want to get it closer to the origianl than it is now. It is part 1 on the diagram. Thank You Very much. 99 528i stock, so far...

That part looks like the impact part of the bumper and quite possibly part of the unibody and welded to the rest of the frame. The impact part is pretty strong so I think you'll need a hydraulic frame straightener from a body shop. I think that part is made of steel (unlike most of the car being aluminum). Definitely not a DIY thing.

The other thing that comes to mind is if the "tube" is actually bent the impact spring inside might bind if not perfectly straight.
