Thanks, I took to go through emissions this morning, and it fail the 1st time, and then the state mechanic was there and he ran it through and it passed.
Had to go pick up some lights that were out in it and such, and got some leather reconditioner, and I picked up some Bosch spark plugs and the guy had some wires for it he never put on. But my question is it ok to run Synthetic oil in it?

Yea Synthetic oil is fine just do an engine flush before you drain off, new filter and 10W/30 will be fine.

Yeah, those are US spec bumpers. AFAIK they are of aluminum.

Anyone know a place were I can get replacement headlights and the highbeams? Because two of them are cracked.

And then, does anyone know anywhere online I can find a blown up picture of the driver side door?
Because the handle fell in the door and we need to take it apart and fix it lol, because now poeple have to let me out of the car haha.

I'd try realoem.com for a door diagram. That year E28 may have had sealed beam lights which blow. But decent headlights that fit can be found; I'd shop around and compare and research a bit online about the quality of the beam patterns.

Thanks, but it seems that website doesn't have E28 in their selection? Because I couldn't find it.

EDIT: Nevermind - I got it.

Here's the Haynes manual which covers your car ,so the door should be in there somewhere:
