    confused Cant see the logic in buying second hand ?

    After a argument with fence panel ive been searching for new bumper for my sri all second hand ones on ebay require some repairs and respray and they are fetching £150- £200 like this one after repair and respray your looking at £300 at least
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...item20c4dc5d1e

    Yet there is brand new ones for £70 which i have bought and arrived today, and i am well pleased with that just need a respray which ive been quoted £50 so £120 all in ive got a brand new bumper, do some people only search by sri model hence why price is so dear for damaged ones the one ive bought doesnt mention sri but its a perfect fit ?

    Well done mate - I would be tempted to send the link for the one you bought to the seller of the s/hand one - won't make any difference but hey.......... I think a lot of people panic buy rather than doing a bit of homework which you obviously have done.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Yes but it's after market vs genuine parts. It used to be that after market where not the best quality or had to be made to fit rather then 2 min bolt on job...

    But since everything seems to come from the same place and just rebranded it doesn't seem to be the case anymore...
