Default Would you buy an Opel Astra grille from Alibaba?

Right now I am undergoing a budget rebadge on my XR 5 door. I have found four 64mm O.D. aftermarket Opel flash wheel center caps for the 16' alloys and an Opel emblem (56mm O.D.) that should go right over the steering wheel airbag Saturn logo.

After checking brand new prices for a 207 1/2 + face lift grille I am now looking at used or aftermarkets. There are aftermarket ones coming from Taiwan, I believe, and also Chinese knock-offs. I tried buying a grille from Lithuania but they would not ship to the States. Another guy in Lithuania said his grille quality was "not bad" when I asked.

Which comes to my original question. Would you buy a grille from the website Alibaba or for that part, anything from Alibaba? I know they are cut-rate on most items but I do not want to be burned.
What have been your experiences with Opelizing a Saturn, anyone?

Thank you in advance.
