Exclamation gxp bumper on a g6 base???

hey guys so im new here and I own a stealth gray 08' g6 Base 2.4L that i recently puchased as my first car. I understand that the gxp grille is a different size on the bumper and so i am asking if the front bumper on a 08' GXP would fit on my g6 base and if so, would there be any other major mods i would have to make?

Please Help.

Yes it will fit. All the front bumpers on all the G6s fit the same. (Not sure about the 2009.5s though).

BTW welcome!

not that expensive. granted it will be over 300 but when u look at it that your saving thousands off the difference between YOUR car and a real GXP, it really isnt expensive.

You're right, it wouldn't be that expensive if you don't bother having it painted to match or have grille pieces in it

Maaco could paint it for around 100 bucks

I'd save the 100 bucks since primer gray and Stealth Gray aren't all THAT much different, and by skipping the grille pieces you're looking at some serious cooling airflow for your 2.4

Ummm, I say keep the front grille. It'll look SUPER ghetto without it. and I will personally make fun of you if you take them off.

Well the point is for $300 you're only getting the GXP bumper. Don't have the stats readily available but IIRC when I looked into this several months ago the two large grille pieces were around $150 each and each lower piece was almost $100
