Default [Q] Nexus 5 reposition parts

My Nexus screen crashed when I sadly droped it to the ground.

So, i'll buy a new replacement screen and change myself.
I just looked at ebay and it has lots of sellers of OEM LG Original Screen replacements, but they all send from China.
Is that right? I mean, it will really be original parts from LG?

Can I trust them?

Also, my Nexus 5 is the white version, but I saw I can change the battery cover, and i thinking of buying a new one in Red color.
Should I be worried about changing the back cover? Some compability problem between versions?

I've bought plenty of phone stuff from China and most of it is legit... in fact, even the stuff sold as not from China probably still came from China originally. As for the cover, there is no difference other than colour so you will be fine if you want to change to red
