Experiences with aftermarket bumper covers 95 E320?

Wondering about aftermarket parts experiences for the bumper covers and impact strips
For the 1995 E320
Fitment issues? Do the aftermarket pieces line up properly and if they interchange well?
For example, Will an aftermarket Ziegler bumper fit with a factory impact strip without modifications? And vis versa?
What challenges if any in installing a bumper cover and impact strip?
This model has the chrome strips on top of the bumper
Specifically rear bumper

I don't have direct experience with the exact parts in question but sometimes plastic bumpers can shrink, distort to where even an OE part might not fit exactly.

All of the aftermarket bumper covers and impact strips I have worked with required modification from minor to extreme.

Fit / function issues are magnified if there has been any previous vehicle impact / distortion.

Good luck.

I need to replace my read Bumper Impact Strip on my 95 E320, and found this one at Pelican parts.

Do I need to remove the entire rear bumper to replace the impact strip, or just it just pry off?
