Aftermarket front end conversion for 03 to make it a 05-07 look

looking for advice on buying aftermarket parts to do the conversion from my 03 front end to the 05-07 look.... found all the parts from autos depo on ebay with shipping for bumper with brackets, upper/lower valences, grill, header panel, and Harley headlights is $812
want to know if anyone has bought from them or if anyone has experience with these aftermarket parts

Everything is holding up fine, no moisture in the headlights or anything. But the sides of the top part of the bumper stick out a little past the fenders, not really bad, but I notice it.
