    Oh ok. Is the hood mandatory to make the bumper fit or is it just because of the body lines not following through the bumper/hood? Can anyone tune in that has done this? Thanks

    Yes although my front bumper was an aftermarket reproduction. I have ordered an original CTS-V hood though so we will see how well it fits compared with the stock hood...

    Re: CTS-V front bumper swap

    Did you have any luck with the V hood on your Non V bumper? I bought a V hood for my Coupe and the body shop just call me today and said that it did not fit and will not close because its hitting the grill??? I am going to check it out in a few hours and I will take pictures. Let me know if you had any problems. Thanks

    No can do! The V grille is recessed about an inch at the hood line. When the V grille is use with the non V hood, the hood overlaps the grille but looks good. IMO

    I speak of sedan, not coupe.
