The only difference between the Pop and Sport bumpers is the grille has holes for front fog lights. I'm sure you can buy just the grille from a pop quite cheaply.

No, they won't fit because of flux capacitor clearance issues.

It means that the bumpers won't fit over because the earlier flux capacitors on the pops were larger and don't fit under the sport bumpers.

Reading between the lines, I suspect Alex actually wants 500S bumpers not 'Sport' bumpers.
