Bumper Question

I have a '99 323i and was thinking about replacing my front bumper, since it has a small crack on the bottom from a run in with a curb a while ago. I really like the bumper which comes with the 330i performance package. Does anyone know if this bumper is compatible?? I have the old style square fog lights, will I need to replace these in order to accomadate the new bumper? Any help which anyone has would be greatly appreciated. Also, does anyone have any idea where I could by such parts as new bumpers and side skirts?? Thank you.

Call Pacific BMW 1-800-7278, make sure you tell them you want mail order or you wont get the wholesale prices. Since you're in California the freight for the bumper (I think) would be around $150.00.
And Yes, you need to get new foglights-the oval kind

With the fog light replacement, will there be any additional wiring which will need to be done, or will it be as simple as removing the old ones and putting in the new oval kind in their place?

THank You
