Hello everyone! This is my first post so I thought should first say "howdie". I purchased an 01 325 w/42000 last week after driving an 04 325 and a couple of 01 330's. I thought I would save about 5 grand and go with a real clean CPO 01 325 for $24.000. It's a great car that my wife now loves because after driving it home I was dissapointed and needed a little bigger cabin. She loves it! So, I went back the next day and bought an 01 530 w 32000 miles, great ride!!! $31,000. We both needed a new car. Do those prices sound about right?
Now the bad part, I parked the 530 over a parking bump and when I backed up it pulled the right side of my bumper off the rubber damper and pulled the clip off the bottom rubber strip and so the wheel well shield is pulled off slightly too.
How can I get that bumper back on myself? The dealer wants to charge me since I did scrape the bottom backing up but hey, I already had the wheel well part tightened a few days ago as it was loose when I bought the car. Is it normal for the dang bumper to pull right off if it gets scraped on a parking bump?

Are you serious right now? You paid someone $300 bucks to put your bumper back on and adjust it a bit? But hey, I guess if you've got the money to throw around -- good on ya! There's better things that I could be doing with $300 bucks than paying someone to re-attach my bumper.
I would suggest looking into a Chiltons manual of sorts for your BMW. If you dont, it will nickel and dime you to death! A little here, a little there -- it adds up. You can't do everything yourself, but you can definately be a bit more thrifty next time your bumper falls off!
I'm not trying to be a ***, I'm just amazed -- that's all!
