    Is it possible to repair the front bumper where the kidneys are?

    Is it possible to repair the front bumper where the kidneys are?

    What would be the best way as I have 2 mall cracks there.

    I am asking as I have heard it starts to crack again but was hoping it is possible to fix it with modern tech

    Great episode. I was really disappointed when they chose the 4 short car instead of the other "real" E31 they looked at.

    It was a joke dude. They passed on a 12 cylinder in favor of the 8... joke. Haha. Funny. Jeesh.

    I initially tried the repair - had a body shop do it with professional materials, but the repair started to show up under the new paint about 6 months in. I just broke down and bought a new one. Now the hood seals perfectly, but it was a $1100 learning curve....

    That joke gets real old and really is not funny.

    OMG... seriously? I love all 8s. It was an awesome episode of Wheeler Dealers. It was cool they looked at both.

    I am terribly and sincerely sorry for any 840 owners that I have offended with my completely inappropriate and cavalier attitude toward the venerable V8 in one of my favorite cars of all time.
