If they’re Rennline, how did you fix them in front of the vanes ?
Thank you! I could not remember the name either, but a search through my old emails produced, "ZunSport". In my case they fit perfectly and I'm very happy with them. YMMV.

I contacted ZunSport and they dont have a screen for cars with the active cowl flap.

So bkrantz, does your car have the active cowl flap?
Can you share more details about where you purchased the screen and the trim/edge piece?
Thank you

So Rennline, since your thread, the challenge is for you to make screens that can fit on the outside of the moving cowls.

Yes, mine has the active flaps. I left enough room behind the screens so the flaps can pivot (I hope). See more details here.

Or, just use Sport or Sport+ in which case the flaps do not close.

Better yet, just remove them since they’ll be behind the screens and and can’t be seen anyway. Or will that throw a code?

Who wants to go first?

Any new discoveries on this topic?? After 650 mi in my new Carrera T, dumbfounded that there isn't a cookie cutter, easily available option for solving this issue. Even more surprised the option isn't a DIY option available at the Porsche parts counter...

Looks great! I need to install the Rennline grills I ordered along with ALP laser sensors/heads. I've been wondering how I was going to get around the issue of the movable flaps and you've just given me a great solution! Thank you!

What if the grilles were placed in front of the slats/louvers and the slats/louvers stayed? Oops! See that's already been covered in earlier posts.

God bless,

i like this look. Someone productionalize! And sell...
