Default Installed Zunsport Front Grills on 997.2

I just installed my Zunsport front grills on my black 997.2 Carrera S. The car had the sport design front grill ordered from the factory when I bought it from the dealer. It is the same as the GTR grill.

It took about 45 minuter to intall them including seeing how they would fit first. They fit very well and easy to install.

This is first time I am attaching photos to a tread. Hope they come out. If not any help anyone can give me will be appreciated.

There are a few installation tips I can post if anyone is interested?

I contacted Zunsport a couple months ago after seeing a 997.1 with the mesh. I wanted the mesh to fit my 997.2. They wanted me to send the exact deminsions of my grill openings. I did not feel like I could sufficiently measure the openings so I dropped the matter. Did they have your pattern?

Nice job! Can you post the installations steps and tips? Did you have to drill holes?

Thanks.

Those look great! Me want....
Adds a measure of protection that's compelling here in rocky AZ.
I looked everywhere, and it looks like Zunsport only makes them for your front and Turbo's....dammit
They're missing a huge segment by not making them for 997.2's.

I've been thinking about getting something for my GTS. How much was shipping from the UK?

I think they ship out of a warehouse in Florida. At least that's how mine were shipped back in March.

I used a 'Promotion Code' and got a 15% discount.

I suggest contacting Zunsport for details.

When I asked about model they asked for photos of my front end which I sent them. They responed telling me they had a GTS in house to make their pattern. I ordered a set and they came from the UK. Long answer for yes they have the pattern.

For those asking for install install hints let me take a few photos tomorrow to add to the instructions and I'll post them tomorrow.

As far as shipping I have to look at my bill will post tomorrow. If I remember correctly the credit cars bill showed the total cost.

Zunsport was real good to communicate with, but had to do it with e-mail because of the time difference. This was easier for me.

Great product fits real well.

I am puzzled as to why Zunsport has a kit for the GTS but not for 997.2 C2, CS, etc?

I guess I will order from Rennline...

Doesn't the 'OP' (rjkjlk4576) have a 997.2? It appears that Zunsport does have the grille set you want.

No, the OP doesn't have a standard 997.2 nose. See his post - GTR nose.

Yes my car is a 997.2, but has the Sport Design Front Grill which is the same the GTS and the stock 997.2 grill.

FYI fellow P members- just got word from them that the kit is now available for the 997.2 C2

I'm still undecided if I want them..keeping the nose clean or aggressive look with the grills...
