VW car parts

Good morning fellow EFers

I need a replacement rear light and bumper for my VW Polo. The bodyshop is happy for me to source the parts, but it all looks like a bit of a minefield to me. Could anybody recommend a reliable online shop?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I have always used German Ebay for lights.

For general service items www.eurocarparts.com is hard to beat even with shipping to CH.

Re: VW car parts

What's "minefield" about it?
As mentioned ebay can be good if you have a German delivery address or there are websites like autoteile-meile.de
I've always found eurocarparts to be more expensive.

Thank you. I found searching for parts by model, year etc. a bit of a minefield. On some sites it's possible to search by Typengenehmigung which I felt was probably more reliable.
