    that dent.
    Shouldn't be too costly as it is in a easy to get to location. Start making some calls as
    some PDR guys will charge per spot and others will charge flat rate per panel.

    Excellent find at a great price. As Chutrain mentioned fix the original fender. It shouldn't be hard to find someone that can do it, and after its fixed you'll have the original fender with matching vin tags.

    Nice car for that price. Very clean! Just needs a little TLC.

    Any idea why the front bumper has rear side marker lights installed?

    Here is another alternative, try a glass company and have a guy pull it with those big suction cups they use to handle the big sheets of glass. Believe it or not they do work and it just may get the whole thing out with out any need need for paint.

    You can usually get away with just tipping the guy. Can't get an cheaper than that.

    Btw, Welcome!

    Nice score. Yeah, I'd try a paintless dent removal guy. That location is very easy to access from the back side, so it shouldn't be a problem at all.

    BTW, it looks like the PO swapped out the original M3 seats and replaced it with regular E30 ones (exception on the SRD):lostme:
