Default Need to Replace the Rear Bumper Cover

I got the corner of my '01 Civic EX couple bumped in pretty bad yesterday, and the driver side of the cover is pushed out away from the upper body panel..it needs to be replaced. I intend to go after-market because they are quit a bit cheaper than the Honda OEM, and the car is 380,000 miles old so it's no prize winner anyway. Are there better (or worse) sources than others to consider (or not consider). Looks like about $110 - 125 is the going rate for a primed cover, and $210-225 is typical for a painted one, but I'm concerned about paint matching up (Silver) on a pre-painted one.

you never know with pre-painted stuff its hit or miss especially with ebay also depends how faded your paint is. if you have it professionally pained they can color match for a little extra cash. also with after market bumpers the fitment is hit or miss. your only other option is to find a used bumper from a yard or online.

Since most cars get totaled by crashing in the front, parts of the back of a car are easy to find in junkyards.
