Parts needed indeed! Take a look at FCP Euro for starters; they’re a forum sponsor and good company to do business with. Looks like mainly cosmetic stuff from the photos. Anything mechanical?

Will be a fun car to work on, and there are plenty of resources here and across other forums to help you out. Welcome aboard, and if you have questions about anything, feel free to ask. So long as you've done your fair share of the research, you'll have a hard time finding people here who don't want to help.

additional info

Doe it look like the last owner was trying to convert the bumper due to the crash? Is this a "facelift" bracket or an original. I'm trying to get it inspected in august and need the body in safe order. I wasn't looking for M3 style bumper but ill take one that's primed for cheap.

Looks like the brackets are still the original pre-facelift ones, and another good resource you'll find valuable is RealOEM. Will help with finding/confirming part numbers for the things you're missing (for example, that washer fluid reservoir: http://realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpart...diagId=61_1083). You might also spend some time prowling the forum classifieds and parting out threads, here and here, for things you need that might be local.
