Front bumper cover replacement - suggestions?

I nicked up my front bumper cover pretty good and have two choices, re-paint it or go for a new aftermarket cover to improve looks.

If I opt for a replacement, can anyone suggest a hot replacement that will improve the looks of my Z?

Thanks for the help!

The tiger shark front end looks sharp. Black Magic put one on his car last year.

Always stay with original parts--go to sell and after-market pieces take alot of buyers out

Another vote for the TIGER SHARK! from Vette Essentials

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Tiger Shark front clip is a sharp looking unit, but painting the existing stock one will save ya some dough. I'd go for the stocker, but thats just me.

I'd go with what everyone else has said, the Tiger Shark front clip is very cool.

Just had my front cover replaced and went with original equipment rather than aftermarket.
