Hi all,

Thank you for a warm welcome, as I had created a few threads prior to this to gain some valuable insight before completing my purchase.

So I am now a proud owner of an 4GTS which was bought through OPC Chester Thumb

I also have a question for any GTS owners ... as both the OPC and I were unsure if there was a Grill which sits in front of the intercooler within the bumper? Please do let me know if anyone on here knows. Thanks

If you mean the centre radiator, then no grill.

Enjoy the car.

Cracking car - congrats!!!

There is no Porsche grille set for the GTS so as usual radiators are seen as consumable parts (minor point but it's just a radiator, not an intercooler as it's a normally aspirated engine).

I have the Zunsport set which takes about ten minutes to fit and looks like this....

Are they easy to "pop on and off"?

They popped on with incredible ease - just clipping in with no drilling etc. I've not tried removing them, but I would think they'd pop out pretty easily too.

GTS is a fantastic car, and definitely worthy of the "hype"

congrats Thumb

with regard to grills, if you're under OPC warranty, the dealer will likely throw a hissy fit, as they aren't standard. Zunsport are excellent, and there is usually a decent discount code floating around

Zunsport just look ugly, which is a shame.

Thanks all for the kind comments, it really is superb car to drive. Have enjoyed all the miles so far. Very Happy

Apologies for the mistake in my initial post had forgotten its a radiator coming from an M4 with turbo's frustrated

With regards to the grills thank you for the heads up, I’ve ordered a set of Zunsport with PCGB discount code Thumb

Welcome to the GTS 'Clan'... Cheers

I also have Zunsport grills fitted which are fine - my only other 'mod' is the SherkWerks exhaust centre muffler by-pass which really is a must to get the sound to match the performance.

BTW - if you bought from OPC Chester, are you based in Cheshire? If so we could arrange a meet-up to discuss our cars?

It took me a while to decide to fit them to my GTS as I didn't think they looked ugly but felt they detracted from the look of the grilles. However now they are fitted they look fine to me and you can still just see the grille profile hiding behind.

Why don't you both jump over to the monthly meet in Wilmslow on the 23rd. We've got a special guest visiting from the South. Maldren is coming up whilst attending other business. A few of us are hanging around for lunch too if that's of interest. Just a thought Thumb
