    like the saying goes,you get what you pay for,the problem with fibreglass is it will crack in use due to vibrations etc,any small knock can cause it to split where a plastic one will flex and the fit is not always that good

    I used to have a pug306 and had a full body kit on it, first bump i hit after getting it sprayed cracked right across the bottom of the bumper
    even worse about 5 months later i went into the back of a car at no more then 10mph due to it being fibreglass there was no crush bar so the impact completerly shattered the fibreglass bumper and also went atleast 2/3 foot into the engine bay writing the car off. Fibre glass body kits are made for show cars NOT every day cars.
    More hassle than they are worth in my opinion.

    heres my replica bumper , i can not fault it , and mine has the "crush bar on" either your car was too low or your just a shit driver .obviously if you hit something its going to damage wether it plastic or fibreglass , cant tell mine from genuine although i got my bumper for free to do this , i would recommend a genuine one as if i had bought mine at full price including painting would have cost over £300 .try get one same colour save youthe hassle and the money .

    waste of money, time and effort, look shit and break easily.
    either get a diffrent bumper or save up for a genuine one.
