Question Can't decide: M3 replica front - Mod My 3 or Ebay

Got into a fender bender this morning (efing monday mornings) and now I need to replace my front bumper. I have only heard good things about the one from Mod My 3 and their service.

http://www.modmy3.com/e9x/bmw-e90/bm...m3fbumper.html

or I found this one on ebay that already has the fog light delete (which i like better) but i'm nervous about buying one from cheapbay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/06-08-BMW-32...4f59e8&vxp=mtr

Does anyone have any experience with these?

How much prep work does the Mod My 3 one require for painting? (even though it claims to be paint ready)

I would appreciate any opinions guys.

Go with JGmods painted and shipped. Then take a few hours out of your afternoon to install it. PM one of their staff on this forum for a quote, it's usually cheaper than on the website.

If you're going to go with ebay, this seller seems to be pretty good, especially for the price. $350 shipped.

It has fog lights, but maybe the seller has one without fog lights.

$350-400 for (paint + install)

you may also need new wires for fog lights, the shop should provide it.
