    Re: CTS-V bumpers on a 08 CTS How-to

    I plan on doing this swap in a week or so and have all the pieces except the front absorber and half splash shields. Was wondering if these pieces
    are absolutely necessary for this swap. I won't be putting in fog lights or the head lamp washers so not sure if that matters or not. This is my first
    time doing something like this so any help is greatly appreciated. Also working on a budget so trying to keep the cost down. I have an 09 CTS base.

    I'm very late to this dance so I hope those of you that have done the bumper mod (like MTL_CTS and sfv41901) are still checking this thread. I have most of the parts together and have turned my attention to finding a paint shop.

    Please tell me if you had the bumper painted off the car? My car is Black Raven. Is matching the paint going to be a problem?

    I will also do the V rear bumper.

    I am also in the process of doing the swap. I already have all the parts but due to a recent accident had to wait for the shop to finish my car. I am not sure if you DON'T need those parts but its best to get all of the parts and do it right from the start. Contact Chris @ Rippy to give you an excellent deal. Btw, I ordered the head lamp washer cover and it only goes over the hole in the bumper (it doesn't actually cover up the hole in the bumper), so I had the body shop cover up the hole on the bumper and returned those parts.

    I have many questions and I cannot PM so here is my email if someone who has done this will email me. I promise not to be a pest.

    mistercoffee2@yahoo.com

    Other mods I have done are: Rearview Camera, Steering Wheel Mounted Shift Buttons and Push Button Start.

    I will also do the V rear bumper.
    Mine is also Black Raven and all I did was give my body shop guy the color code and he matched it. It wont be a problem matching since Black Raven is not metallic which is harder to mix.

    I understand from the write up the splash shield halves have to be replaced because the non V parts won't work. Also, the V absorber should be used for the same reason plus, IMO, not having one to stabilize all that plastic, is not an option.

    Re: CTS-V bumpers on a 08 CTS How-to

    I have most of the parts. I need 1/2 of the right side cooling vent and the two "bright" rings for the fogs. I also need the splitter parts but may go aftermarket. Question have come up about the original fogs fitting. I will continue to post here as I go through this mod. Please, anyone doing this mod, do the same to help out a fellow modder.

    Does anyone have a contact to get the pats numbers for the CTS and CTS-V fogs?

    Re: CTS-V bumpers on a 08 CTS How-to

    I probably have the brake vent part that you need in stock (is it the one that connects to the bumper?)

    as for the chrome ring i think it's part of the fog lamp asm and not sold by itself (at least i can't find it right now)

    Re: CTS-V bumpers on a 08 CTS How-to

    Thanks for the reply I cannot PM.

    When I posted earlier the duct had not arrived, it came a few minutes ago. All that remains is the fog rings. My dealer gave me the part number as 25863011. His price is out of the park. Can you verify and help me? He showed me the parts diagram with the rings on it. Was not part of the fogs.

    Thanks mistercoffee2@yahoo.com

    OH yes! Clips, the ones that hold the grills in and the push clips for the round holes in the bumper and wheel well half and elsewhere.

    Re: CTS-V bumpers on a 08 CTS How-to

    hmm yeah that part number looks correct ... not sure how i missed that earlier

    $60 each is the cheapest i can sell them

    i would suggest that you just source the clips locally
    you can get the clips at the local HELP! rack at your nearest parts store ... unless you really want the OEM clips
