Urethane or Fiberglass?

I was wondering about body kits, i'm looking at buying one and i didn't know what the difference would be in the two? I looked on Buddyclub2.com and they say guarenteed OEM fitment, but other kits say they are urethan, which is better?

urethane is wayy better than fiber glass.urethane is a strong ruubber/plastic type of material that can bend. fiber glass is one solid form that can break or crack

not necessarily cuz urathane is harder to paint and with fiberglass you can repair the bumper eaiser, but with urathane you usaly have to buy a whole new bumper
