    Painted Rear Ebay Bumper... Worth it?

    Just wondering if anyone has had experience with one of these.

    Need a new rear bumper and it looks like OEM are about $350ish, and paint quotes vary between $350-$700, so all in cost would be around $800-$1000, assuming I do the install myself.

    These aftermarket ones come painted for $444 shipped to my front door though. The seller seems to have good reviews and it shows 3 of these have been sold. They claim to use OEM specs, 3 coats, 2 coats of clear, no extra costs, also the aftermarket bumper is still ABS plastic like OEM.

    So obviously a big cost savings, the question is, would it be worth it? My concern would be around fitment issues, paint match/quality, but they do have good reviews...

    I would not trust it for Magnetic, that's a hard color to match. I would have it painted at a high quality paint shop stay the hell away from Maaco. Maybe somebody here has experience with a pre painted bumper.

    It's risky, but I bought a color matched molten orange spoiler lip of eBay. The match is pretty good in my opinion.
