Mista, good timing. I have the parts list and breakdown for the 00-02 Bonnevilles due in this week. I'll be able to nail it down for you the second it gets here. In the meantime, if you're REALLY impatient, Deathrat should be able to look it up for you.

I too would be interested in a front bumper for my 2001 Pontiac Bonneville. Let me know what you find out.

Actually, you should be able to swap them. They're the same on the ssei, but different on the se. I kinda like the se a little better, but the ssei is growing on me. What I'd love to see is someone come up with an air dam with some brake ducts.

According to my 'manual', the mounts are the same for the bumper covers you asked about.

It wont be easy or cheap.

You would need the following parts:
  • Front Cover (nose) #12482889 =$363.00
    Right grill #25649509 =$23.35
    Left grill #25649510 =$23.35
    (5) Upper center retainer @$0.90 #21030249 =$4.50
    (2) Cover stud @ $3.50 #11517103 =$7.00
    (2) Upper outer retainer @ $0.27 #10121502 =$0.52
    Emblem #25648735 =$10.20
    License opening cover (optional) #12482023 =$37.20
    (2) License cover retainer (optional) @ $0.90 #21030249 =$1.80
    Air deflector #25907671 =$30.20
    (20) Air delfector retainer @ $0.63 #14093088 =$12.60
    (2) Bumper cover reinforcement @ $8.90 #25629122 =$17.80
    Right cover extension #25695502 =$24.60
    Left cover extension #25695503 =$24.60
    (10) Extension retainer @ $0.90 #21030249 =$9.00
    Impact absorber #25649529 =$99.50
    Impact bar #25649519 =$117.00
    Right impact bar bracket #25649524 =$28.40
    Left impact bar bracket #25649525 =$28.40
    (2) impact bar bracket plate @ $3.60 #25650007 =$7.20

    Total parts = $870.22

This list is taking into account that you swap all the lamp assemblies, harnesses and brackets over from the old nose. You are also looking at two-three days labor for refinishing and assembly. Keep in mind, since you are planning on doing this to a used car, the fenders and hood are going to have to be blended to do the job right.

Realistically, you will be spending at least two grand to have a shop do this.

If you look at it that way, can you find an SLE or SSEi for about two grand more than the car you are looking at? You would be getting a better car overall (more goodies) and not have to mess with tearing everything apart.

Or go to the yard and get a Bonneville with a intact front end.
