I am a new member and I've been looking for a new fender for my '96 318 ti. I've had limited success- I heard somewhere that all '96 two door 3-series body parts were compatible. All the 318 ti fenders I've found have no side-light: my car does. I really don't want to buy two new fenders just so they'll match. Where can I find a 318 ti fender with the sidelight? Alternatively how simple is it to add the existing side light to the new light-less fender. Ideally I would like to get a pair of fenders that have a little more panache. What are my options? ghead

It should be no problem at all to add sidemarkers. You could drill through the fender and put it in. Just make sure to have a sealant like clearcoat so the thing doesn't rust. Don't get 2, 1 will be just fine.

It won't be hard at all. Maybe there's a 318 ti at a nearby salvage yard that you could just pull the fender from?

the ti and e36 4dr.'s have all the the same fenders/ corners/ markers.....that should make it easier to find a fender.
