    It just bolts in. All the lights are the same. Just need the bumper cover and grilles.

    There are many threads on the topic. The forum's search function could be better but Google should do the job: 'Cadillac Forums, STS 2008 Grille' or similar.

    You will need to change the bumper but many members have done so.

    I've done the swap without changing the bumper. What is different about the 08+ bumper?

    The grills on the 08+ are different making the bumper different, 08+ grills won't fit 05-07 bumpers.

    I assume TimmyC is referring to the metal bumper behind the plastic fascia.
