Default Difference in SE and SLE/SSEi Front bumpers

Is there a difference in the SE and SLE or SSEi front bumpers? I bought a front license plate cover that says "Pontiac" on it, and it is about an inch and a half too wide for my SE. The auction said it was for an SLE or SSEi but I thought the front bumpers were the same. So basically, I want to find out if I should try to get my money back or what.

Also, if anyone either is interested in a white front licence plate cover or has a white 2000+ front bumper cover for sale, let me know.

Yes, there is a significant difference in bumpers between the SE, and the SLE,SSEi. I'm not sure if you'll be able to get your money back on that one especially if they specified that the license plate cover was for SLE, SSEi.

Asking for your money back because you assumed isn't the best idea.
