As I stated in this post, if you purchase a bumper cover which is CAPA certified, you'll not have any issues. Tell the guy you don't care which part he gets to replace (aftermarket or OEM) as long as it is CAPA certified and you'll not have any issues ... at least with the fit of the bumper.
Yes, there will be a difference in quality. They are not necessarily made from the same materials or molds as the OEM parts. Any savings in cost on aftermarket body parts is often made up for by the additional work to get proper fitment and paint quality during install.
