How about we just get some tape measures and digital cameras out?
I've seen an SSE body with the cross style SE grill on CD and it wasn't fitting well at the bottom edge along the bumper. Hood gaps weren't bad.
Just look at them, There'* NO WAY the chrome trim ring on the outside of my style piece would fit above or below the circle of the SSE style.
EDIT: Like mentioned above, the SE do go below the headlights, the SSE might (hard to tell from the angle) but no where near the same. They will all bolt on just fine, but they don't all have the same gaps on the bottom. The difference is apparant with the Hood protector i use. It'* an SSE model i got from someone who totalled their car, the grill section of it is too small, and the fit isn't tip top on the grill area. The shape is different as well.
