Need help securing a Euro bumper for a US car!

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=202326

I was recently hit head on here in the US and I'm looking to install a Euro bumper on my car. The problem I'm facing is that US dealers can't order the Euro bumper; instead, it needs to be imported into the US. I was wondering if someone in Europe would be kind enough to order me a Euro bumper from their local dealership and ship it to me here in Southern California? We could work out some sort of compensation, whether it be cash or one of my E92 M3 carbon fiber diffusers seen in the picture below (it sells for $500 US). If you can help, please PM me.

how bad is your original bumper?
is it not fixable?
if it is, you might as well fix it, fill the holes that the side reflectors had. and there u go....EURO BUMPER!
OR order a US bumper, unpainted, have a body shop fill the holes and paint and once again...EURO BUMPER!

The bumper is destroyed, no chance of fixing it. I like the idea of having an original Euro bumper w/ no holes, instead of filling the holes with polyurethane. If I don't get a Euro, I'll settle for filling the holes. BTW, Toronto is an incredibly beautiful city. Probably the cleanest place I've ever seen in my life.

Hey, I'll do it for you since I live close to every BMW dealership in Germany. If you have patience until Jun-Jul when I get back from Iraq!

Just installed the Pre-Painted Euro Bumper Cover (Spacer Grey) for our client's E92 M3. Enjoy the picture.
