    E36 replacment body panels! Genuine or Cheap or used?

    Evening all!

    In the quest to get rid of all the rust on my car I'm replacing both front wings and the nose cone grille, I got a genuine drivers wing by chance for 50 which I thought was pretty good, but the other parts are pretty expensive for genuine parts. So I'm thinking shall I got for for the genuine parts or the cheaper eBay type bits? the third option would be used parts but not too keep on this as in any case all bits will need painted and repainting a different coloured panel would take more work, therefore cost more!!

    To give you an idea i'm looking to get the above parts and a front end spray for about 500-600!!

    So what is your experience on replacement parts!!?? I dn't like to go cheap on my car but hate spending more than I have to!

    Any help genuinely appreciated

    Genuine every time....I made a fuck up by buying a pattern part wing and it was shite. Didn't fit properly at all. Buy parts from cars been broken Cheaper than new and can be rust free
