    So last night on my long drive home from work my body decided to take a nap. I ended up hitting a construction barrel head on and now I need a new front bumper. I can get a new one through work for 100 bucks, but was wandering if there were any decent looking aftermarket ones that may be not too much more that anyone could recommend?

    Post a picture of the damage?

    (With 5 posts already you may be ok, that's maybe the minimum for posting pictures? If it's more, just do a few extra postings first.)

    Go through your insurance, get a body shop involved? Especially if the damage's minor, they'll probably just restore it and paint. And if it's more serious, there's hidden frame/suspension damage, they'll also be your best bet.

    100 bucks for a bumper or you are talking about just bumper cover? Either way, you are not likely to find anything much cheaper than that.

    Yap, that looks a bit more damage than you can tape it up. You might find some aftermarket cover around ~$80 online, but with shipping may go over $100. Those parts will come unpainted. Are you going to paint DIY? I did a similar thing on my old Civic. Not difficult to do with a can of spray paint, but it will not be a perfect match.

    Ebay has the cheap ones but the cost usually comes up when you paint them. If you get the front, you might as well get side skirts as well.. Usually, after market fronts, hang lower than stock sides - if that even makes sense..
