    Fog lights, no. Bumper, yes.

    The actually lights are the same. The brackets are different. I did a 2 minute mod to make mine work with the V bumper. You can also get the proper brackets off ebay. Look for the ones with the air scoop under the light.

    re: Want to swap to a ctsv front bumper

    I just did my v bumper swap two days ago used my cts fogs with a quick mod to the mounting areas . Will be switching to v fogs and brake ducts after awhile . Also used my cts front fender liners buy moving them over a bit to connect to the bumper . No rubbing no flapping in the wind . .. Now just searching for a bottom v grill that's a decent price . Like that will ever happen

    I got my lower V grill for $200. Not a genuine GM part but it was still mint. Fit great and looks great.

    I've got a oem one I paid about $300 + for. All 3 pieces. Will let it go for a decent offer.
