Will a GT Premium rear bumper fit a base GT?

    So haven't owned a mustang since 2010 and I have the itch, thinking about buying a 2017 here shortly. I am leaning towards the base model, as the premium really has nothing I need, EXCEPT the rear bumper. I really like the look of the GT350 lower valance, which only fits the premium GT. Since the difference in price for the GT vs GT premium is about $3,700 comparably equipped, figured it would be much cheaper to just buy the GT and then get a premium bumper and have it color matched. I am guessing it would fit no problem, but curious if anyone has any direct experience with this.

    Figured I would come back and update this for future reference. Ended up picking up a 2017 base GT end of August of last year. I just finished swapping a Premium model bumper on it a couple of weeks ago. No issues at all, everything swapped right over from my original bumper. All I needed to buy separately were 6 little screws that hold the sides of the GT350 valance to the bumper cover. (Found something that would work at a local auto parts store.) Was about as easy as it could get.

    Can I ask how much it set you back? Also where did you buy the parts?

    I bought the bumper from LMR, by far the cheapest place I found. I waited till they had a 7% discount code, but they do charge a freight fee. I think I paid just over $500 for the bumper shipped, then had a local shop charge me just over $400 to paint it to match.
