Those are probably aftermarket bumpers and fitment will be mediocre at best. Try going through local Kijiji/Craigslist ads as well as online forums for part outs.

You get what you pay for. Then again, you could be surprised at what the Chinese can make with scrap metal and old soda bottles.

The problem is you can buy all kinds of replacement parts such as front or rear bumpers etc but most won't be painted according to the actual colour of your car.There are some sites that do offer already painted bumpers etc but again does the black etc match your cars paint.If you weren't looking for new parts you maybe able to contact some wrecking yards they can either pull the parts for you or order them from other auto wreckers or sources.Otherwise you could try a you pick/pull auto wreckers or a flat rate pull yard and try to find a vehicle like yours same colour etc.

Now if you purchased the aftermarket parts and wanted to paint them yourself you could probably buy the paint for 150-200 bucks to do the the parts you have.There are some shops that might paint the parts for you for fairly cheap if you either supplied the parts to them and they made up or purchased the paint then painted the parts for you.

There are some places like tow yards or impound lots that have cars that weren't claimed etc and they might have a car/cars like yours the same colour that you might be able to buy parts off of or the whole car for fairly cheap.Then maybe if the parts and colours match up enough you could install them, then clean and wax the whole car afterwards.

Hope that helps and best of luck.
