2011/2012 V-6 grille?

I'm looking for a new grille for a 2012 V-6 pony that has the fog lights in it just like the GT model. Does anyone know of a company making these. I saw some for the 05'-09' models, but nothing for the 2011/2012 models... thanks for any help....I have the fog lights in the lower bumper...

So just to clarify, do you want the GT bumper with the GT grille, or do you want to add the GT fog lights to the V6 bumper with a new grille?

Currently your only options are to buy a GT style fascia, GT grille surround, and GT grille, or find a good body shop that might be able to shoe-horn a GT grille into the existing opening. Haven't seen anyone do this yet, though many have bought GT fascias and have gone that route.

Yes, I would like to add the GT fog lights to the V-6 bumper with a new grille... I wasn't to clear was I on that post....

All I want to do this add the fog lights into the grille either by getting a new grille with the lights or maybe by cutting the holes into my grille and installing the fog lights myself.... just not sure if anyone mades a grille yet for the 2012 base model....

Youre going to have to do what V6 Cannonballer posted.

You either change the front end to GT or have a good body shop do a custom grille with the fogs

I was thinkin about the same thing actually, I really wanted the fog's from the 11'-'12 GT without sacraficing the $$$ to replace the entire bumper, paint it, then buy the grille and surround. I'm actually saving up to have a body shop take a look at mine and actually cut my aftermarket grille insert and put in some fogs. I was quoted about $150.00 that includes yellow fogs and install.

yea, I wanted an aftermarket grille with the "elenor" style fogs like you could buy for the 05-09 models.. Steeda and Street Scenes both said they were developing a direct swap grille for the V6 facia but never actually developed one they were happy with.

they said the fogs ended up sticking too far proud of the grille to clear everything they needed to clear, and "it just plain looked stupid"..(their words) so they never brought one to market.

I saw a post recently where a fella said he modified a GT fog grille and made it fit in the V6 facia, I'm thinking he said it was not a big deal but I didn't want to chop around on my car hoping I could make it look ok so I just basically added the black CS GT/MCA V6 grill which is a direct
swap. I like it a lot better than the "pony" grille.
