    GM bumper cover or aftermarket?

    I have a 2001 Z28 that has been wrecked in the front. I need a new bumper cover and was wondering if it was worth the money for an original GM part or if an aftermarket would fit the same.

    I have seen an aftermarket one and the fit was ok, but it didnt compare to a GM one. I would just spend the extra and get a GM one and have a perfect fit.

    Just got my car repaired after a fender bender (not my fault) and was asked if i wanted the GM one or an aftermarket one. I went with the GM.. The body shop was very upfront with me and said they might have difficulty installing the aftermarket one.
