    I still don't understand why painted bumper caps are so damn expensive.

    I'd rather save the money and buy the bumper covers by Ecoological

    My only issue with those is how they buckle at the sensors because the sensors dont have enough room to accommodate the extra plastic.

    I asked if it was an OEM part. Got this response.

    Hello,
    This is not a OEM part. This is an Insurance, Quality, aftermarket direct replacement Bumper End.
    Thank you,
    MBI AUTO

    Yeah kind of irritating, but I've learned to leave with it, eventually will replace whole bumper sometime in near future..

    Big difference is that the eBay item is a direct replacement. Not an overlay.

    I also have been shopping around for possible solutions for the chrome bumper covers front and back as well.

    So far I think wrapping the front and back professionally has been the most cost effective but not permanent. Even more saving if you decide to wrap yourself.

    color lab 4pcs of 2’x2’ for the front and back comes out to 6hundred and fifty and I was quoted by a local wrap business 50$ a corner. So your looking at around 200$ on top of the 650$

    I haven’t really measured but if you think 1x1 vinyl wrap of your color code would cover the end caps its lower $520 4pcs.

    and this business you suggested 270$ X 4 ( presumably the rears are also the same
    Price) @1.1k

    But you Still gotta do the work
    Yourself, which I think you save on cost but lose on longevity of material.
