Hey guys, Im new to this forum, I recently got rid of my Audi S4, and am now switching over to BMW'S. I recently bought a 2003 BMW 325I. It is wrecked, airbags blew up, and I intend on fixing it. I know that this isnt really a good thing to do, and saftey issues, and yada yada yada.... but I cant afford a new/used BMW. I need to buy some front end parts, and need to know if the 330 and 325 front end parts are interchangable. Also, what are the differences between 2001 and the 2003's. Also, what is a good aftermarket part manufacterer, as the car is wrecked, I figure I might as well upgrade, and keep my costs down. The 325I I have has the facelift.
Please advise.

PS. I got the car for 4 thousand, retail value is over 30.

PSS. I want to find out if I have any of the packages (ex. sport, cold weather....) Please tell me what to look for to identify the package.
Thanks for all your imputs, and for bearing with me.

I'd assume most of the parts are the same, the 330 and 325 are the same body just different engines. An instant answer to the cold weather package is heated seats, I couldn't really tell you about the sport package. I would go to BMW's site and read the FAQ on the package and see what it comes with, and then see what your car has.

Sport package: You will have M wheels, your side blinkers will white instead of orange, and I beleive you will have a different steering wheel.

Cold weather: Heated seats, headlight washers, and a ski bag in the center of the backseats.

The only time you have a problem matching body panels if is if you move to a different a Ci or Cabrio. They do not share any body panels.

I do not know much about aftermarket.
