What do you guys think? Is this a waste of money?

I've seen a lot of people run these "1M replicas"
I've always noticed one bad looking thing when going this route is that without the wide front fenders 1M style it just looks awful. Just an opinion though

So what do you think, its because they're trying to compensate for the low price or something?

Do you or does anyone think this would be waste of money, being quality based on price?

That would be about the right price to ship something as large of a bumper.

If I was getting one, I would try this one off eBay:

I personally would prefer plastic over fiberglass. But I don't have any experience with either of these and have no idea of the fitment or quality.

My understanding is never order from Car ID. I looked there before and then searched reviews and they are not good. I would recommend looking else where like N5tuner, ECStuning, modbargins, etc.

That's what I was looking for, what people here in the community have heard about them. When it's priced that low I figured there's gotta be something up with them.

I'm going with Dtm's front bumper

You absolutely do not want a fiberglass bumper. You will hate yourself. They make the same bumper in poly that replicates oem quality material.

Stay away from Fiber glass. The Ebay 1M bumper is the same one ECS sells. They are the same price as the one your looking at (Around 360)

Thank you for your recommendation, I decided I will go with the Kerscher bumper. A lot more expensive than ECS but I personally think their bumper flows better with the body. The ECS one almost hangs a little lower imo making it look a little off.
It may just be me that notices or thinks that lol
