Need Right side headlights and brackets

I was unfortunate to have a tow truck back into my 92' 525i and smashed out the right headlights and brackets and grill which hold the headlights.

Luckily it did not hit the hood nor bumper but did bend in the right corner panel slightly.

I live in Houston TX if anyone has a e34 they are parting out or know of where I can pickup or order the parts inexpensively.

Thanks

Shouldn't the tow truck company pay/take care of this??

In any case try Ebay, sometimes you can get lucky...

Cops were called but no witness... no fault

Even though the tow truck driver acknowledged that he backed into me he changed his story once the cops showed up and they asked him if there were any witnesses, which there were not. Then he said I rolled into him and he was not at fault.

So without a witness he was not found at fault and neither given a ticket and I am stuck with a damaged car for which I only have basic insurance on.

It looks like I should be able to just screw into place a new right side grill and headlight bracket which I hope.

Perhaps someone could shead some light on the subject.
