Accident: Looking for E39 rear bumper (M package)

Accident in the parking lot, a guy backed into my rear bumper while I was in the middle of backing out first. As soon as I saw him, I stopped, honked, he didn't care and hit me 2 second later.

I won't make a claim so I have to repair the damage out of my own pocket.

My car is 2003 530i with M package. Dealer quoted the M bumper $1016 CAD before tax, painting is another $500-$600.

I saw a lot of alternatives on the Internet, but wondering where I can find them locally in Toronto, and also if they have good quality and can last with the rest of the car's body parts.

Help needed as soon as possible for me to make decisions, appreciate it.

Parking lot it is hard to argue, I started to back first when I saw him not moving. Then he also started to back. I stopped, honked, 2 seconds later, he backed into my rear left corner. Witness said that we backed into each other (did he wear his glasses?), what a fool...

Anyways...

From EACTuning.com, the OEM M bumper (with PDC holes) costs $553 USD. From DDMTuning does not have one with PDC holes.

In Toronto, I was quoted $200-$300 CAD for a non-OEM aftermarket bumper that will look differently too.

Any other ideas? I don't know if I should have EACTuning ship to Toronto, or to Niagara Falls and I go pick it up.

I ordered through EACTuning.com an OEM M-tech rear bumper cover with PDC holes for $580 shipped to US. Painting and installation will cost another $500.

Yikes...
