With paint you're up to $2,000. Excluding side skirts.

At it's lowest point, its exactly the same height as the stock CTS bumper. Where it differs is in the lip at the front, which sticks out a few more inches. Where the CTS bumper curves under, the V one curves forward. So if you have issues with speed bumps or steep driveways, it will affect the approach angle, but no more than the stock rubber air dam underneith. If you don't scrape that, you won't scrape the V bumper.

The side skirts are similar. They aren't any lower, but go straight down, where the stock CTS ones curve under the car. They're the same height to the ground. The rear bumper is the same story. It curves down and under (about 45 degrees) right at the bumper cover, where the CTS goes horizontal then dips 45 degrees undernieth at the spare tire well.

I understand that the upper stainless mesh grill fits the regular CTS, you simply swap them... but will the lower mesh grill fit the regular CTS bumper?

No, They are not even close in size. Look at a picture of both and you will clearly see why it would not fit.

I slammed my CTS into a large wooden post last night and cracked the front bumper (prior to drinking on St Pat's Day, if you can believe that). I want to take the opportunity to upgrade to the CTS-V bumper/grill.

Some questions - are the part numbers you list good for a 2004 CTS?

Since I hit the bumper going 10mph, are there some other parts under the bumper that might need replacement? If so, do you know the part numbers?? On the same note, are there springs that might have been damaged?

I'm pretty mechanically inclined - is this something that's pretty easy to do or would you suggest taking it to a shop?

Thanks for your time..

Actually i just did the V-front fascia mod and you definatly need to do the side skirts to finish the look. Mine are currently getting painted.
