They sell the same aftermarket parts pretty much any other place does. They all pretty much fit. You may have to shim a fender or elongate a bolt hole to get it to line up correctly. I prefer used oem parts from a junkyard if available because they’re thicker and fit better. But there are tons of vehicles driving around with aftermarket parts on them that, when fitted skillfully, look perfect.

As AL said they are not perfect but do come very close. They are very thin though, everything from metal to plastics on the bigger pieces is considerably lighter. My biggest pain is with bumpers, almost always there is an issue that makes the job allot harder and takes longer.

Don't know if this is of interest, but these guys will provide Body parts primed and painted. Don't know about the color match, but they state they can match any color code provided.

There is also a vendor on eBay that does same. I think mbi auto is the name. They color matched and shipped me a painted front bumper cover for a Honda Accord to the door for around 200.00. Paint matched. I just unwrapped and clipped it on. Looked good

I use rockauto for most of my repair and maintenance use,as it is a lot cheaper than the auto parts store and have the same stuff. Most parts that I buy are better brands than the stores. I hate waiting,but hate wasting money worse.

The aftermarket panels are a little wonky. My truck has an aftermarket fender and it doesn't line up right. If I took time to massage on it I could probably make it line up, but don't really care that much. They are very thin and damage easily.
