    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.
