    Anyone use these After market front and rear bumpers?

    I picked up a salaved 2015 Mirage ES, Runs good, only has 13k miles. front end and rear end was slightly crumpled, got most the repairs done. I spotted these aftermarket Front Bumper covers, and wanted to know if anyone has negative feed back for fittting issues? do they fit properly? talking about these bumper covers https://www.ebay.com/itm/Front-Bumpe...sAAOSwyGBa7EqV

    My Mitsubishi dealer only charges $342 for a front bumper cover. And that's the list price with no discounts. If you can find it from a dealer who discounts, it's less than $300...

    Aftermarket body parts are notorious for bad fitment. That's why good body shops avaoid them. Personally I would pay the slight difference for OEM. There are a lot of holes that need to line up.

    Did you notice the area on the front eBay cover where the Mitsubishi emblem goes? That looks a little funky...

    I seen that in the pics, I don't care about the emblem, just asking if it will fit properly. or if anyone had fitament issues with these.

    looked up the part, and shipping is an additional 261 dollars to my location. local dealer quoted me 650. ugh. can't find any local slavaged or parting out cars in my area or any of the pick a part places.

    Have had decent luck with aftermarket covers. The raised emblem section is correct. Those raised sections actually fit into indentations in the back of the actual emblem.

    Thanks! I recently purchased the front passenger side quarter panel, and had to remove excess metal trim from the top and bottom to make it fit properly, all the holes for the bolts and push pins lined up correctly.

    Wow...don't know where he's getting that figure from. My local dealer is the worst when it comes to price breaks on parts...and even they are quoting "list" price on that part...which is $342.

    Unfortunately, this is one of those parts you can't reasonably purchase from an out-of-town dealer and have it shipped because the shipping cost will kill you. It almost sounds like your dealer is charging for the part + shipping.

    So that's what's under our Mitsubishi emblem. Looks like flower petals.

    Ordered it, I'll report back if it fits correctly.

    There's a mirage locally with rear cover. Boise isn't too far.. I might be able to swing it by in late June on my way to ND.
