Does anyone know if there a way to install the Rennline center grill in the front (not behind) of the bumper?

You definately could do it, just wouldnĺt look as neat. I thought about it due to my laser radar sensor interfering with the install from the back. I just didnĺt like the look of the extra screen material and hold down screws. Guess you could trim it but for me the back just looked OEM.

Still holding out for three GT4-like screens for the 991.2 Carrera/4/S/4S/T with GT4 mesh and strake delete. Would make what is arguably the prettiest 991 front bumper of them all even better.

I'll second Benedict: This looks great.

Yes, not a big deal though.

The Rennline grilles are designed to fit behind the bumper fascia. The are contoured to nestle in the radiator shrouds. If you want to fit grilles in front of the intake slats, you should look elsewhere. I've installed the Rennline grilles on my car and I can tell you it does require removing the bumper cover. The screws that hold the grille material to the shrouds are no big deal. Unlike grilles that sit in the bumper cutouts that would stop any debris righ there, the Rennline grilles catch the debris before it has a chance to hit the radiators. I thought this would be a problem but have found that leaves are easy to reach since they don't go all the way in to the face of the radiators like before. They are discreet enough to not affect aesthetics. They were a pain to install due to the bumper cover removal but I'm very happy with them now.

Thanks. Do you screw into the paint or just plastic? Would be nice if Rennline had a video
