I don't want to hijack Riley's thread, but from the looks of his grillles the installation is a combination of clips (which simply attach to the bumper cover) and pins (which require the drilling of small holes). Look at his pictures and you can see both the clips and pins attached to the grilles. If you have any mechanical skill then this will be an easy installation. You can see my instructions for 997.1 grilles here:

After some debating just put these on my 997.2 and it was a quick 20min job. For this model the grills only had tabs and no drilling required..the instructions made it harder than it should be- anyone need help with the install on their 997.2 let me know.

I have the GMG version of those screens. I wouldn't live with out them. I always have some debris or bug stuck in it....without the screen, it would be in your radiator!

I suppose you can even back up that nice grill with a finer mesh to filter out the smaller stuff and securing it to the Zunsport grills would provide both a template and a means to secure them.

Yes I think that is totally doable, if one can cut out a fine mesh layer and in lay it behind the Zunsport grills you'd be good to go for all functional purposes.

Not sure how that would look cosmetically though ..

Seen them here http://www.racperformance.com/index....MGAerodynamics

Note that they install in the inside not outside like the Zunsports

I am very interested in these, despite the price tag (for what they are it seems a little steep, no?) You guys that have bought the black, is it painted or some sort of more durable or baked like finish?

Price came out delivered to US around $300 and some..mine are black and appears to be durable coated over the material i.e. you can't chip it off scratching on it, but if you used pliers and picked on it it will come off,etc - this is based on my observation.

vg247- Thanks for the pictures; I ordered these grills for my Meteor Grey C4S and expect them in about 1 week or so.

In the SF Bay Area we have so much debris on the freeways and roads that I look at this as doing what I can to avoid a puncture to one of the radiators. So though it may alter the look of the front end somewhat, it serves a valid purpose and will hopefully save me an expensive repair down the road.

+1 on grills. Installed some during my 3rd rad install when I had my front fascia off. Could not believe the debris I found blocking my radiators from the PO... paper towel, large bugs, twigs, leaves, etc. Try to clean what you can off the existing rads before you install the grills. https://rennlist.com/forums/997-foru...il-filter.html
