Default Replacing damaged bumper. Are there options besides OEM?

My front bumper was damaged when the wife hit a snow/ice pile. I had it looked at, and the body guy said we'll need to replace the whole bumper cover. If we're going to do that anyway, is there any kind of aftermarket type bumpers I should consider replacing it with, or should I just replace it with the standard OEM bumper cover?

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

With these kits, do you have to do all the parts at once, or if I do just the front bumper will it look ok?

Actually, there are 3 small areas of damage, the front under bumper, the rear corner of the bumper, and the drivers side rocker panel where it was bottomed out and scrapped paint.

I wonder, would the side skirts cover the entire rocker panel? If so, maybe adding those wouldn't be too expensive compared to repairing the panel.

Oh, and I see the xenon items listed above are for early model PT's, I've got an 06. I'll have to see what I can find for body kits for this one.
