OMGHi2U HELP, should i buy this bumper???

i found a guy selling a replica of this bumper on yahoo bidding taiwan.
it's 100 CAD for the bumper face only (no signal light/fog light). if i want to buy fog light cover it's 120 CAD

bumper skin

fog light cover


the bumper is made of strengthened FRP material while the fog light cover is made of ABS material.

I've heard stories about ppl brining bumpers back along w/ them when traveling, so i suppose i can do it too. (my dad should come to canada in a couple of monthes later).

so should i buy it?

THX
Kevin

EDIT:
the chinese on the pictures says 22B front bumer, fog light cover, and ABS mateiral.

I would never buy a replica part unless I see it in person. Even if it is in front of you and you could touch it, you can't see the waviness of the material unless it gets painted. When I bought my V5 replica spoiler, I thought it was good quality but it was pretty bad after I got it painted.

I would also say no to this. It sounds too good to be true. I agree with Vege on this one. Replica parts are a pain in the arse.
