Default Differences between front bumpers?

What are the differences between the front bumpers/grilles of the V-6, Pony Package and GT? (besides fog lights)

Will this chin spoiler fit on my Pony Package?

Yes that will fit

The pony package is still a v6 bumper so only v6 chin spoilers and v6 grilles will work. Make sure its accessible with the pony package foglights unless you dont want them (if you change grille the chin is only on the bottom)

That chin spoiler will fit on your car.

The whole front fascia (the whole plastic front end bumper cover) is different on the V6s and the GTs. You can't take a grille designed for a GT and put it on a V6 without modification, or visa versa. You'd have to swap the entire fascia. The pony package uses the standard V6 front fascia but with a unique grille which has smaller GT-like fog lights with a chrome surround.

The most obvious differences in the fascias is what's going on below the bumpers. The V6 lower grille forms a smile shape.



While the GT lower grille forms a frown shape. and the fascia has a bit of a lip molded along the bottom of it.
