Feedback on aftermarket body parts (bumpers, fenders, hood)?

So right now im in the market for a new hood, front bumper, and a driver side fender.

Has anyone purchased an aftermarket part for these? If so, how was the quality, fitment, and what were they made out of?

Also, if anyone knows what site I can get these OEM parts from for a fair price, let me know! I'd prefer to have OEM than aftermarket.

I have the certifit 07 front bumper and I like it. It held up all season, paint held good. It's durable as its it the ground a few times. Overall it seems okay tome, fitment is 99%, and you can't beat the price of $36

I have aftermarket front and rear bumpers (certifit i think) and they look and fit great. Can't tell they aren't OEM from looking at them on the car.

Aftermarket has come a long way from how they used to be. As far as our accords go, I've seen hoods fenders and bumpers fit very nicely with the body. But I've seen several times that the HFP kit has trouble mounting or have fitment issues on to aftermarket bumpers. So if you plan on getting a lip, I'd suggest going OEM bumpers.

We have an aftermarket driver's side front fender and the lines with the headlights aren't as tight as OEM. When I tried to use the OEM full bra, the fit was very tight and the snaps ended up coming off multiple times on the highway. Ended up taking the bra off and just using the hood portion. I would spend the extra money on OEM based on my experience.

You have issues with the lip? The VIS Lip had issues fitting on my 06-07 CAP Bumper.

I just purchased it. It appears to be plastic. The fitment was ok. Not that great lol. The ends of the bumper didnt reach far enough to meet with the fender ><
