Default pre-painted parts ?

I'm researching my options on replacing my front bumper. Today I spoke to the shop that did my new hood, he rough quoted me around $500.00.
While checking prices on replacement bumper I came across a vendor on Ebay called Paint-N-Ship that lists a replacement painted to mach vehicle paint code for $267.
Anyone ever buy any pre-painted parts the savings is tempting, but I am concerned as to. you get what you pay for.
All opinions are welcome
Thanks

Thumbs up Good Luck

Hi `Shawn,
I hope our member's post their thoughts on your thread topic. The price does sound great, and you are wise to do your homework & research on this part & who makes it & search for reviews.

I've never ordered anything from E-Bay, so I can't help. Wish you good luck on your search about this bumper. Myself, I'd rather pay a little more to someone I know that has the talents and professionalism to do the job. I don't like having buyer's remorse.

Good Luck `Shawn

Thanks for the comment. BBMike I agree but the savings are tempting.
Just looking to see if anyone here ever bought that way, the body shop guy did say he had bought already painted spoilers before. but the front bumper takes a lot of hits on the roads I am on, so am leaning on paying more
was hoping someone here had a rave review of already painted parts and say they are ok

I bought a rear spoiler for a 2005 Impala SS no problem.
A guy I work with bought a bumper painted for his wife's monte he loved it because he didn't need to paint it .
Just look at the feed back for the seller..
