What do you guys think of this?
I just bought a civic DX hb, the front bumper is kinda fuct(the licente plate is sorta smashed into it, and theres lotsa scratches).
so i'm considering getting a new one, or getting my current one repaired.

This seems like a really good deal,
but im kinda worred about geting crap "Ebay" quality.

What do you think?
does it look like a good deal?

I bought one of those once and it didn't fit right...so I spent $40 more on an OEM bumper and it fit perfect...just something to think about;)

ah, ok,
well thing is , this guy paints the bumper, and includes paint in the final price, he sent me some pics of painted bumpers,
and it looked really good, they were lone bumpers tho,
so i dont know how well he does with matching, but he says
he does any stock honda paint color(mine is teal).

thanks for the www.asylumms.com link,
it says it has an OE one there for 69,
but anyone know how much it would cost to paint it?!?
THANKS!

Whelp.. depending on where you live, and where you go, between $150 - $250 to get your bumper painted, including primer, paint, and clear.

Ok,
well thanks for the warning, was gona buy it cuz of the huge savings, but sounds like the fit must be pretty bad, so I guess I'll get stock OEM kind. Just hope I can afford it, cuz my current bumper is FUUUUCCT and I gota buy rims, tires, springs, shocks, and get some dents out.

oh well, at least the interior is mint :)

BTW anyone know if the ones at asylumms.com are the
good fitting kind, or crap fitting kind?

Call around to your local salvage yards, Ill bet they have rear or side hit cars that will have perfect front covers. If your really lucky theyll have one in the same color as your car. It couldnt hurt. Only takes ten minutes to remove and replace. Happy hunting.
