I am woundering what is a nose panel. I have a dent in the front of my 325is e36 and i want to get the whole panel replaced. The dent is right above the grill, but right below the hood. In that little space. Is it the "nose panel" that needs to be replaced or is it somthing else? Please let me know.

Thanks,
Matt used

Mine is rock chipped to all hell. so as long as it's off you might look into some vynle stuff to lay on it and protect it. Maybe when I start making the car look pretty I'll get a new one of those.

Could someone post some head-to-head pictures of cars with pre-96 and 96+ nose panels w/the different grills. You all say the newer looks better, but right now I can only imagine the difference. Pictures would help.

Thanks.

Thanks guys! Can you swap the newer nose panel in a pre-96 easily...and more importantly, does it fit well?

Yes it fits. But supposedly it's a bitch to do if you don't have to or something? I never really looked into it too much, but you have to take like everything attached to it off (headlights turn signals ) Shouldn't be too bad.
