Fiberglass Bumper

I am almost done with the visual upgrades for my car. All that is left is a new rear bumper. I found a cobra shaved bumper on ebay. On the description it says it's made out of fiberglass. Would you guys recommend me purchasing this? I would like to hear both pros and cons.

Thanks!

Agreed, fiberglass would be a nightmare.

Fiberglass cracks easily. It can also get brittle

One good rock chip and you'll have a big crack in the bumper. Urethane won't do that. Whenever you see one of those ricers with cracked spaceship ground effects hanging off... that's fiberglass.
