I'm new to these forums (but not new to forums by any means). I have a 1985 318i, Magnaflow exhaust (no cat ) custom intake, and those nasty diving board bumpers. I am wondering where to find some of those sweet european bumpers. Any help appreciated. Look forward to posting alot here.

Some decent pure BMW dealers have parts departments, and you can order the bumpers. But I am not sure if that is 100% good, but it sounds about right.

Really the only place you can get euro bumpers is to have them imported. Dealers wont carry them and you wont find them in junkyards. I belive they run under $600 for both front and back and the side panel replacements. The best thing you can do is go around to foriegn forums and ask someone in germany to find you a set.

fox is right. most dealers have parts depts, but there is a 0% chance of you finding them at a US dealer. you will have to find someone overseas, unless something pops up on ebay.
