front bumper swap

I have an 08 GT convertible, and I would like to try swapping the front bumber from the stock to that of a GXP. I think the GXP front end looks so much cooler and more eye catching. Has anyone ever done this. Would love to hear some feed back on how easy and or how hard it was. Or if it even fits in the first place. I have tried googling specs but have had little luck. Would hate to order the bumper and not have it fit

it does fit but the cost of all the grilles (if you can find them) is probably more than the bumper itself.

Waterflowler is right, All those little pieces add up. P Magic did this to his G6 and in a thread posted a diagram and a parts list. It's on page 2, here's the link:

I think that's everything. It adds up to be a very expensive upgrade. I don't know why but anything that relates to GXP is outrageously expensive.
