Black, however they have now cancelled the order as they will not deliver to Germany. I'll re-order again now to a UK address. I chose black purely as the plastic panels behind are black. Are you suggesting that silver would be a better option?

Steve many thanks Thumb

I was just interested, as those are the choices.

I think black is best, irrespective of the body colour, otherwise you lose the vent styling.

Much better to still look like an open mouth.

Hopefully I'll be getting around to doing this little mod this weekend as well as giving the radiators and a/c condensers a good clean out prior to putting the front PU back together Very Happy

That too, be silly not to give them a good coat whilst all the available parts are accessible Thumb

@GT4 (or anyone else in the know) - can this be done on a 996 turbo without taking the front bumper off - i.e. just by pulling the 3 grill inserts out? (I guess what I'm really asking is; can the 3 grill inserts of a 996 turbo front bumper be pulled out from the front without taking the bumper off, and then re-inserted etc without breaking any tabs or retaining clips!?)

Oops, added here:

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=55868

But not here:


I didn't bother with the sensor bracket (just Dremel'd it off) and the ensuing cutting of the grill.

I just secured the temp sensor base (the part that woukd be held by the bracket) in the rubber grommet that the wire comes through anyway.

The tip of the sensor still protrudes 1.5" from the rear of channel into the air flow.

As long as the car is moving external air flows over the sensor tip and it reads the same external temperature.

Which size mesh did people use, there is 16 x 8 or 12 x 6mm? I'm guessing the latter but can someone confirm so I get the right look?

That's going to be my first mod. I'll do it when I'll replace the leaky A/C condenser some time in the near future.
Nice DIY! And the slots in the 2 air channels are a great idea!
