Hey everyone, I figured posting to some actual PEOPLE will get me the information I need. I just moved into a new apartment complex and (of course!) decided to get a garage. Well, these garages are pretty $#@* tiny! I hit my car pulling in! The black triming/molding/I don't know what they're called on the whole passenger side took most of the brunt and those are going to have to be replaced. It's scratched, and there's a shallow dent behind the passenger's door. The dent can easily be popped out and the paint job won't be too bad to massage out (I'm sure I'll have to get something touched up). I just can't find out how much it will cost to replace those black pieces!!! From what I could find, which isn't much, maybe each section is like $30?? I can't stand to look at her!! Help me!!!!!

He means the trim pieces that are to prevent door dings. See if you can't find a junkyard that has them. It doesn't sound like a very common thing people would want, so any 2/4 door (whichever your's is) e36s will fit.

Heeyyyy, I'm a SHE!
Sorry I wasn't more specific... I was typing through my tears about my baby car (see, female!) My car's just like the pictures above... but white so the side part is black. I keep the plastic bits coated with vylnx (or something like that... a protectant), and a cover on... does anyone know what the bits would go for new?

Look at a salvage yard, but I think also they're not very expensive at your BMW dealer. Is there more damage to your car or is it only the door side trimming? A paint job would be expensive!

Sorry for the assumption. We all know what happens when we assume.

You make an "ass" out of "u" and "me"
