Hey, so in the middle of a shitty winter spell I crashed my g5 into a parked snow plow, who was parked at the bottom of a hill after crashing into a poll himself (he is my girlfriends brother)..its confusing and rather heartbreaking so thats it for details..


basically i need some help because I know very little on the topic. I just wanted a few quick suggestions on which sites to look for a replacement. Both OE and aftermarket suggestions would be great. Also, is it possible to order one that is already the color of the car (competition yellow) or do I have to paint regardless? thanks very much

If it is cheaper, get one from a Cobalt. The bumpers are the exact same. All you need to do is just trim the center grille bar from the Cobalt bumper. It should expand your options.
dont do that.... im not even gonna go further than this cause if i have to i'll just get angry

its not that hard. I took a sawsall and just cut the cross bar off. Then i used a rotozip and trimed it down more. Then i took some 80 grit sandpaper and sanded it down and the grill fit in no problem.
