Default Swap 05 Front Clip on to 06 RS Wagon

I have an 06 RS Wagon with a smashed front end....
bumper, rebar, headlights, grilles, rad cradle, hood, fenders
I would like to put on an 05 front clip mostly because I like the look way better but also because I can get an 05 clip at a decent price.

The guy selling the 05 clip says it will work but like Ronald Reagan said
"trust but verify".

Any thoughts, any experience is most welcome.

It makes me crazy looking in parts books because it seems like more than half the front end parts are different numbers on the 06 Sedan than the 06 Wagon.

You can do it, but you need to replace the WHOLE front end:

Bumper
Hood
Fenders
Headlights
Radiator support
Etc
