buying non OEM parts

I want to swap the front bumper of my gt for the 03-04 cobra bumper. As well as I wanna put the 03-04 cobra spoiler on my gt. I just prefer the looks so much more. I'd keep the rear bumper. Maybe in the future get a different hood. But my question is, how do you guys feel about buying non OEM parts from eBay. They are a lot cheaper and that's what attracts me. But I feel like its taking a risk on quality. Tell me what you guys think.

I'd go with Andy's auto sport. eBay is to sketchy for something like that. They could be one damaged just from either shipping or the seller. Or the material could be sh**!

How did the whole install go? Was it difficult? How much in total did you spend? How does it look?
