I have some questions: do the bumpers fit, are of good quality (chrom on top and zinc inside) and rubber fittings easy to install and complete? And can i trust bumperAutomobile in Vietnam by paying with paypal and or creditcard? your help is highly appreciated.

I purchased a set from BumperAutomobile last fall and swapped them myself following a separate thread on this site. I am not an Auto Body guy by any means but I was able to complete the job on my own.

You need to be prepared to:

Strip and paint the steel pieces included in the kit.
Paint your new valance panels in the rear of the car.
Drill out one side of the mounting hole on the driver's side rear of your car.
Plug some holes left by current rubber bumper inserts as you won't need them any longer.
Do more "finagling" than I can recall right now!

The thread detailing the full process is here...
