falling apart... sort of

Well I was driving (pretty fast) from my aunt's house back to my place. Then when I get out of my car I notice that a piece of plastic has fallen off of my bumper. I'm talking about that 2 to 4" tall strip of plastic that juts out the furthest from the bumper and wraps around the enire thing from wheel to wheel.
Where can I get this piece and how much would it be?

The dealer ususally has stuff like that in stock. It shouldn't be too much. For trim stuff like that I prefer dealer parts because sometimes some of the aftermarket stuff just doesn't fit quite right.

You can get OEM trim pieces for your car from www.bavauto.com. Check their prices against your local dealership and decide who to get it from. Make sure to take into consideration that bavauto will charge you shipping, and the dealership will charge you sales tax.
