Korean-Built Front Bumper Cover

Why is it so hard to find a Korean-built painted-to-match front bumper cover on eBay - HY1000193 - 865113X020

All of the painted bumpers listed are for the US built.

On the other hand what's the fair price to pay to paint it if I get just the primed one off of eBay? Some shops in NJ quoted me $500+ just to paint, which is outrageous.

Korean-Built Front Bumper Cover

I ran into the same issues with my trunk lid, ended up going the body shop route and they even had trouble sourcing an aftermarket part and had to go OEM.

Think about that for a second... and aftermarket sellers... do you think they want to have to store 500 bumpers for each color, or do you think they would want to store 500 bumpers total? It doesn't matter the quantity, they aren't going to store specific colors that may never sell. They will store the base product and leave it to the customer to paint.


Also it's probably uncommon to have the korean built car... how do you know yours is korean?

painting would be $300-500, no doubt. they can charge crazy money for painting. if you have a garage or somewhere you can paint you can get a $20 spray gun and do it yourself if you have an air compressor. but by the time you are done buying the paint, reducer, hardener, and clear coat you're at $300+ anyways and have a ton of leftover product that you'll never use.

If you VIN starts with "K", the car was built in Korea. My 2015 Sport is Korean built.

Mine's Korean as well.


You don't have to have the Korean cover, the only real difference is the tow hook cutout. Someone on here already did an American/Korean swap I believe. I think they put the Korean cover on an American built version.

You can get pre-painted bumper covers and spoilers, although I'm not sure if they stock all the colors or if they just have the access to paint to match before they ship.

Also note that the Korean and USA paint colors aren't always completely identical.

Your best bet is almost always finding the same part in the same color from a junkyard, but that isn't always available.

I had no luck finding it at junkyards or OEM used on eBay (and when they have them they're in terrible condition, needing more than just paint).
Seems to me Korean built is more popular and that's why the aftermarket inventory is limited.

As someone who had both the rear and front replaced (myself), $180 a piece, bought it local since shipping was about 1/3 of the price and had it painted for $350 at a luxury shop. I'm talking about a place where they fix lambos and bmw's, no cheaper than it.
