[Hands-On Review] Buying a Painted to Match Bumper on Amazon - 3rd Party Blog Review
The front bumper on my Acura RSX was in rough shape. I had been backed into, so the plastic needed repair, and the paint was failing. I got quotes from body shops and they all wanted $400+ to repair the bumper and paint it. So I started searching online for the cost of a new bumper and planned to repaint it myself. That’s when I ran across a pre-painted bumper from MBI Auto on Amazon for $289 shipped. At that price, it wasn’t worth my time to buy a bumper and paint it. I was skeptical of the price (sounded too good to be true) but I decided to take the risk after reading some positive reviews on other bumpers on Amazon. Knowing that modern automotive paint doesn’t fade much I was pretty confident that a good color match could be attained if I gave them accurate information. I took pictures of the paint code sticker in my door jamb, which also included the paint type letter, and my VIN number, and put in my order with MBI Auto on Amazon.
