My Ride: LeMans Blue E46 M3
Feeler: E46 M3 slightly damaged parts

I stupidly injured my car last weekend... so it is in the shop getting some work done, and some upgrades. I am taking advantage of this time and buying some new parts for it, so the body shop asked me if I wanted the old parts or if they should just throw them away. I was wondering if anyone here would be interested in the following, for very cheap, as they are not perfect condition:

1) E46 M3 lip spoiler: from what I can tell, it is not damaged too much, maybe a SLIGHT bend in it (will be easier to tell once I remove it from the trunk) and the paint is slightly chipped.

2) E46 M3 rear bumper: there is a spider web crack in this, along the top (horizontal) surface, but it can be repaired, I do not know how much for. Also, it is just the cover and diffusor, all the underneath supports will not be able to be repaired.

3) E46 M3 muffler: the driver side exhaust tips are bent in (they look like a pop can that got slightly crushed), other than that it looks fine.

The body shop doing the work said that they could salvage all of these without too much trouble, but since the insurance company would pay for new, why not do it.

Also, I could grab the bootlid, but it looks like it would need a bit more extensive work, as it took the brunt of the damage. But if someone wants, I can grab.

Everything is off of a 2003 E46 M3 coupe, LeMan's Blue. I really don't want to deal with shipping anything, so anyone who wants the stuff would have to pick it up near Mentor OH, or the muffler/spoiler I can bring to Columbus one weekend and you can get it there.

This is just a feeler to see if it is worth me grabbing the stuff from the body shop. If I get interest, I will probably have the parts in 1-2 weeks, and will post detailed pictures then.

I forgot, here is a (low quality) picture of the damage. All of the stuff on the bumper is just dirt from the telephone pole, not damage.
