I’m thinking of fitting a Zunsport grille to the front of my 991.2 GTS, will this affect the Porsche warranty? I’m going to omit the centre grille and just go with outer and outer centre pieces I think.

Unless it specifically causes a warranty claim it won't be a problem BUT you will need to remove them to pass a 111 point check when renewal time comes.

This is what I don't get with the OPC warranty... I've just fitted a set to the 911 as I dont want rad repair/change bills.. they're in black and look good and do a great job...so much so I'm thinking of getting them for the Cayenne too which has warranty...surely an owner fitting these helps the warranty company out?

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

OPC Reading refused to do the 111 check with mine fitted (but they did kindly offer to remove them for £273...) - I took them off, got the check done and then stuck them back on.

Mate of mine has a 981 Cayman S - took it to Porsche Brooklands to get the 111 point check done and they did not even comment on the grills...

Go figure

That's because Porsche Brooklands is independantly owned and why my Cayenne is booked in there next month for a major service, they beat both Reading and Guildford (owned by Porsche) by £300...

Brooklands - presume that means that they also keep within the confines of your warranty? Might remember that when it comes to servicing time.

They are an official Porsche service centre just independently owned... why wouldn't they?

Can i just humbly add ..

the Ruling from Porsche was and i expect still is that ..

No Third party items can be fitted and passed on a 111 point check .

Its a blanket rule to stop any confusion from different OPC,s thinking this part is ok whilst that part isn't .

NO third party items period is what Porsche means .

Yup i agree its stupid .. porsche even fit grills on some models and what difference a non Porsche battery will make is beyond me .. its not even covered by the warranty .

it was deemed a bit of a joke back when i used to do them to the point the service manager had a photo of a porsche battery he used to lay on top of the non porsche ones fitted .



I can only assume some OPS,s are either ignoring the rules or haven't read them which i find very doubtful .

EDIT

Some customers have complained that Armorfend has failed the check .. i know of at least one OPC that has been told by Porsche they can pass vehicles with this fitted ..

In short if you complain to Porsche you may get the decision reversed .
