Default Grill screens (radiator protection)

What have you found for grill screens? I'm looking at the Rennline grill screens:

http://www.rennline.com/Rennline-Rad...%7C2230%7C2232

But, even on-sale they're $233 for just the 2 outside radiator openings (no center grill).

Have you found similar products at better prices?

TIA

Zunsport has some also.

Rennline - better OEM fit-finish-look. Install is a PITA since you must remove the front bumper.

Zunsport - way easier to install. not as OEM quality. No front bumper removal necessary.

Absolutely no regrets on Zunsport and their super fast 2-day shipping.

I love that Zunsport has the center grill, unlike the Rennline version.

Which set did you buy for Ĺ18GTS? Their website says they still need a loaner car to test fit

Thanks!

Had Rennline on my previous 4S. Went with Zunsport on the Turbo S and did them myself. After figuring out the 1st install piece took 20 minutes to complete the job. Look is great, quality and fit super.

Rennline does have a center grill for standard and SD bumper.

Just ordered Zunsport for my GTS-I can barely change a light bulb, so looking forward to reporting back on installation !

I'm not a fan of the external screen look, but am a fan of some radiator protection. I had the dealer use the GT4 screen material on the inside of the bumper, and only in front of the radiators on my Cayman S, and will do the same on my GTS when it arrives. I like the almost invisible look below.

+1 on the Zunnsport grills. I (cough) "supervised" while the Spousal Unit put them on & can vouch that they're easy to install (what? I held something some paper while he did it. No cursing, either.) & that they look really good.

Running Zunnsports on my '16 GTS Targa. A bit of a PIA to install, but I'm ****. They look great and should more than do the job of protecting the radiators.

Well, you obviously didn't have me supervising the installation!
