Bumper

well the only actual way to check for sure is to get both bumpers side by side. however from the picks I found they don't look compatible.
GT

GXP

Bumper.. Cover lol

I'm acutally pretty sure it'll fit on the GT. because the top of the covers and wheel wells are the same. which is where it's mounted. :cool:

It fits just fine....The grills dont come with it and will set you back quite a bit though.
Happy hunting.

That GXP front bumper should fit the GT. I doubt that the structure is different. I'm looking for one for my GT. There are a couple of rear bumpers on ebay.

If you buy the front bumper go to a dealership and see if you can order the grills that fit in the holes. They should have a way to get the grills since it is OE.

Try a body shop too. They may order you a bumper w/ the grills and get it painted and possibly give you a discount for going through them.

You can get the Bumper cover 400$~ and grills from Gm parts direct the grills will cost you 167$ and 57$ for the trim ring, for each side :eek:.

I would however try to find one form a junkyard, look up certified auto recycling (www.barbersauto.net) call them !!!

I have used them Great people help me find some odds and ends for my bretta

Ya i would agree with finding one at the junkyard. Hard to find a complete bumper but would save you some big bucks. I been looking for 7 months (just in town) and havent found a stock front cover yet cuz they are smashed up lol. Best bet is to look outside your city/town like mjgonegm said. Visit some junkyard websites and they will ship the part to you.

Is there any other parts needed for the swap? Like parts underneath the bumper covers? I would like to do the rear bumper and side skirts also. I been looking at the Razzi Grnd effects kit. I don't know what is needed to do the complete OEM swap vs the Razzi swap and which is more cost effective. One thing is that I haven't seen, is a Razzi pic that shows the fog lamps installed and keeping the fog lamps is a must for me. Anyone out here done a complete price comparison or know what additional parts are required?

just an FYI putting the GXP front/rear bumper aswell as the hood is 100% possible mj breaks the pricing down to a tee, I work at a GM dealership and have some pull there so lucky for my i swaped my front/rear bumper on two seprate cars and payed the extra for the grills.

Are those shop prices or walk in the door prices? $2500 seems a bit high. Plus buying the hood. It's hard to justify spending that kind of money to make a look like something it isn't. Not to mention the value of the car drops daily,No matter what you do to it. I'm all about driving a nice looking car! As my avitar shows my 72 cutlass with only 58k on the clock. Seeing the dollar figure on paper is making me think twice now. I like having my money in the bank. I might go with the Razzi kit & the MPD ram air hood. I found the kit for $525 on the net. With the hood and paint I should be in around &1700. That's painting the parts my self. Unless I can find OEM LKQ parts. I deffinately like OEM better. Just not the cost factor. I want to retire someday!! :D:beer:

Did you have to change the whole stock bumper from your GT because with the grille you will see i through?
my bad on the later response but I dont think i had to change anything with the bumper my body shop did it all. From what i remember they might have had to chance to absorbers or some jazz because they are a bit different but i dont think anything to do with the bumper.

btw im looking to trade in on an 09 G8 GT!!! GO ME!! lol
