Ebay Front Bumper Covers

Has anyone ever bought one of these bumpers off of Ebay? They come prepainted for $159.95...But I am a little bit worried about the quality of the paint and the work, especially buying through Ebay.

EBAY ITEM

My rule of thumb is: No picture in the auction?... I do not bid. Regardless of whether or not it's a good deal.

Yeah, I'd stear clear of this guy. If the price is too good to be true, it usually is.

i read through a lot of his feedback, most people say he's good, but he takes awhile to ship from most of his negatives/neutrals

some of his other feedbacks say that it's not an OEM part, but OEM style (don't make much sense to me?)

OEM Style = Aftermarket part, usually made in Taiwan.. I've used some of these type parts (not from this seller) mostly front sheetmetal for an Acclaim once and a full-sized Bronco another time.. they usually fit OK, but in other instances had to modify (slot holes with a rattail file) to achieve proper fit. one thing I have learned , is any chromed pieces (plastic or metal) the quality of the chrome usually sucks, and they look like crap after being exposed to the elements sometimes in as little as 6 months..

Here's one I see on eBay all the time. I haven't bought anything from them, but have thought about it. We'll see... At least these guys have pics and a decent feedback rating!

"Buy it now" for $90? That seems kinda low to me. Gotta wonder how close of a match it will be to you paint, and also, what quality paint are you looking at?

The one I listed is not painted....just primed. Obviously aftermarket, so I'm a little concerned about fitment.

I bought one off ebay a couple years ago, was fine. There was a pic though, which made it easier. Not sure who it was through, can't say if it was the same guy. Anything ebay though, no pic= no bid.

It's saying you choose between base/no fogs or ES/fogs. It's not saying it has fogs with no fog holes.
