Hey guys, my name is Kb. i live in California and drive a Commodore in Pontiac clothing. ;)
I love my G8 but i want to do a front end swap. How much do the VE front clips cost? The bumper, hood and foglamps? Also is anyone interested in doing a swap? I have a picture attached of my car. :thumbsup:

Bumper only on a VE Clusbsport is $1650 australian dollars.

Then add fog / spot lights and grille mesh.

The SS front bumper will be considerably cheaper than above. I would suggest looking around for a second hand front half if you can find one though. Looking further into a swap might be an idea if you research shipping costs. Many people here would like the pontiac front so that they can fit the vented bonnet also.

How do you know he wants a Clubbie front end? :confused:

I think the swap idea might be a good one. Some guys here love the Pontiac front end.

Personally, I really like the bonnet only - shame you cant swap it easily without doing the nose also.

I don't, but i know what they cost. N oidea what the SS one costs but i dont think it would be much less. It's only plastic after all.

Pontiac G8 Sedan 2009/ Holden SV6
Intro

First I want to say “Thank You” for the G8 (Commodore Brethren)! You boys and gales down under sure know how to make a great car! :bow: An absolute gem this car is, and if it wasn’t for Holden, I don’t believe we would have such a fantastic car here in the states. :thumbsup: As I’m sure you are all aware Pontiac is to be no more! :rip: Shame really for the G8 (in this mans onion) would have really set the tone for Pontiacs more “Performance” line of cars. As of late most of Pontiac’s cars are plastic toy cars lacking in both the “real world performance” and quality. Now that being said, I too am very interested in converting or as I like to call it (accessorizing) my G8 Sedan with the SS or SS-V (drooling) front ends. Any suggestions on where to look? :whistling

heres my email if anyone is interested in discussing a swap. [email protected]

acca00-ill attach some more pics. they are the stock 19s :yeah: i like to be different and i didnt like any of the alloy or chrome on the car, i think this car should be more sleathy than bling.
