Since we are on the subject of license plates, anyone know what size Skene license bracket works on the GTS? I’d measure it myself but my car’s on a boat at the moment.

Added painted reflectors and wind deflectors last night. Also got a set of brackets to adjust the LWBS tilt a little. Hopefully going on later today.

I bought an early Christmas present the Zunsport grilles for my 14 S Aerokit Cup car. They are on a 7 day backorder so I really got lucky for the timing to be better for my wife Question is I am going to attempt to place the center grille over the black plastic block off plate. Anyone tried this? Grille will look much better!

You could also just put the center and outers on, which allows you to reach in to remove crap that may get it there. Also, use a rattle can to spray the radiator surfaces Black.

Quick question, do you feel the deflector work as you expected?

i feel whenever I roll down the window, a good mount of turbulence, wondering if that could a quick fix? Any light you shed on this subject is greatly appreciated

Worked great for me too. I still get a bit of buffeting >150km/h but vastly improved

They improve buffeting significantly with only one window down (which I never do anyway), but I did not notice as much improvement with both windows down. Kind of disappointed.

This is my experience as well. They do improve the issue but do not get rid of it. I may try one of the other versions that has a little more deflection. I can tell you that over 100 MPH on the track there is still a lot of buffeting with both windows down. It's enough that I want to try a different product so do with that info as you will.

On a side note I installed the LWBS brackets and LOVE them! The additional recline (3 degrees) makes a big difference, especially if you track. This give more room for your head with a helmet on, no more resting on the headrest. It also makes me feel "cradled" in the car in what for me is an ideal driving position. YMMV....
