I want your Input!!!!

So I gave this truck a love tap with my front bumper the other day. The truck in turn put its trailer hitch threw my bumper. Thank god I've kept full coverage on my Focus since paying it off. I cashed out with the insurance company and got $300 to work with. I plan on painting the new bumper myself to save on the cost.

Here's what I've thought of doing so far...

1. Buy my friends used OEM bumper and a roof spoiler thats for sale in the BST area, and painting both of them.

2. Buy a used SVT bumper and maybe have a little to no money left over for paint.

3. Buy a new aftermarket bumper and have little to no money left over for paint.

4. Or if someone on here has the hook up on a aftermarket bumper buy that.

If I dont have enough money left over from buying the bumper, I'll have to save up the cash for paint, not a big deal though.

So everyone helo me make a decision! BTW I want a aftermarket bumper that looks good with no other body kit pieces. And pics or links.

pro DTM front bumpers look really nice on sedans and they look good with the rest of the body panels stock.

edit: here is one on ebay for 150 bucks and its located in Cali. you could pick that up and paint it for 300 bucks easily. made from duraflex to boot. i saw a mustang bumper at a local shop made out of that stuff. its tough junk. not as good as polyurethane bumpers but a hell of alot better than strait fiberglass.

there are a bunch of places in cali that do body kits. im sure there is somewhere close to you that you could use as a hub to order you a good kit.

I want one, does anyone know if BAT still has them or how much they are from Ford? I tried looking at BAT's catalog but it would load.

I could buy his bumper. http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=224424

I'm not a huge fan of stand alone SVT bumpers, they end up looking out of place.
I do like the looks of the bumper in the ebay link.
