Replacement Front Bumper Cover

I discovered that a trailer hitch punched a hole in my front bumper cover and now I'm looking for a replacement cover.

Pelican parts is over $1K for genuine Porsche
I found this on Amazon for between $400 & $500 Amazon.com: Evan-Fischer EVA17872046559 Bumper Cover Front Facial Plastic Primered With tow hook provision and air holes: Automotive

I have a 2004 S, can anyone recommend another site for a good replacement?

What would be the difference between stock & the aerokit?

The 996 turbo replica front for 986 is nice.

Not covered by your (or their) insurance?

@ HolmaN - do you have a link where you got yours?

@Ikchris - It was a hit & run, and I don't want to go to the insurance (new owner & just took the car out of storage)

Lots of them on eBay. Of course you have to factor in painting and fitting. You can also look for one from a car being parted out.
