So someone broke one of the covers for the rear lights on my mom's car (2009 Corolla). I'm helping my mom replace it and I'm currently looking for the part online. I basically came across three choices.
1) Ebay. Non-OEM. New. International seller. $42 shipped
2) Ebay. OEM, Used. US seller. $62 shipped
3) OEM part. New. $100 shipped
My initial thoughts were to get the $42 part because it's the cheapest solution. However, people have warned me that a non-OEM item and an international seller = no good. Based on the ebay ratings, people generally have no problems with purchasing from this seller. So I'm looking for more opinions on this.
For the US seller on ebay, I'm just worried that the part will come in a worse condition than advertised because the seller does not accept returns.
And lastly, while buying at trademotion may give me the most peace of mind, it is also the most expensive option. I don't really want to spend $100 on a simple cover for the turn signals.
