Grill Differences?

In the GM Parts Catalog, they show different descriptions, part numbers and prices between the standard Cobalt and the SS models when you order the upper grill. (I know the lower grill and the new SS/TC grill will be different).
What actually IS the difference between the upper grill that would be different from 05-08 SS/Sport? The design and color seem to be the same??

Thanks!!

Replacement upper grille PN for 05-07 all models is 15276343 -- my 07 SS grille looks the same as my 06 LS grille -- I can't see any difference. The fascias are different between all models: LS has molded-in lower grilles, LT has lower grille inserts w/center lower grille a "smiley" face, SS/NA has 1 lower "frowning" grille, SS/SC has open lower grille opening but the SS/NA grille fits it and a "chin" spoiler.

Replacement upper grille PN for 08 all models (EXCEPT SS/TC) is 15274493

Anybody with an 08 can you get together with a 05-07 Cobalt owner and look at the grille to see if there is a visible difference?

OK... -O- Great Crystal ball....LOL .. When will the the 08 SS/TC upper and lower grills be readily available? Best price shipped, from whom? Will it be a direct bolt-on fit for the 08 Sport (NA/SS)?

Since the front fascia PN is the same for the 08 SS/TC and the 07SS/SC and since the original grille fits the SS/SC we expect the upper grille to fit right into the SS/SC, SS/NA, Sport and LS/LT. Lower grille will fit the SS/NA and SS/SC. I would keep up with CED on getting the grilles and attaching hardware (there are some extra attaching parts for the lower grille).
