Re: 2001 interchangeable front bumper?
They're interchangeable as far as fit. The earlier first generation were smooth and the later were indented. As a guide towards originality, match the front bumper cover with one that conforms to your rear bumper design.
SOOO BIG, being a 2005 originally had indented bumper covers so I stayed with that when I replaced the front bumper cover. Also it still matches the back bumper cover.
The small insert photo is a toothless SOOO BIG without his front bumper cover during reincarnation.
I changed to a standard bumper cover and grill for a cost advantage.
SOOO BIG's original damaged front bumper cover and grill were the factory Chrome addition. Very expensive to replace. Using the standard front bumper cover and grill with an after market chrome grill cover saved a bunch of change.
As the original grill wasn't damaged I was able to get it to another PT Cruiser Forum member as a replacement for his damaged grill.
Another plus, I like the more massive look of the aftermarket chrome grill covers.
