Default Front Bumper

Good afternoon guys, sorry if this thread has already been created, but I couldn't find one. So my whole front bumper is all messed up now due to a little fender bender I got into a while back and was just seeing what everyone thinks I should get to replace it.

What aftermarket ones do y'all have and are they worth it to get them and everything with it?

Thank you.

Assuming you mean the plastic bumper cover and not the metal bumper bar, I looked into these before but was disappointed by most. Obviously a new/used/reproduction original design is the best "easy" swap since you can get pre-painted bumpers from sellers on eBay and similar (I bought a pre-painted spoiler like that and it was a 100% match color wise).

There are a few alternate designs that are supposed to be more "body kit" looking and some look interesting, but they are hit or miss. A lot are fibreglass and require a lot of modifications just to mount up properly and more work yet to match up with body lines, not to mention paint prep. Also a lot more prone to damage and cracking. If you can find a good aftermarket bumper made of proper plastic (polypropylene usually) then I'd give it a shot, but for the most part consider this: most people are using original or reproduction bumpers and just adding lip/widebody kits on top of that.

With all the above I'm assuming this is a daily driver, as was mine when I was looking into these. I hope this is the kind of info you were wanting.
