What are your thoughts on the front grille? Would you change it or leave it as it is? Post you some ideas on how you would change it or would you simple just leave it as it?

It’s not terrible but it’s not the best either. Maybe just round the corners a bit so it’s not so square. The rest of the car is awesome.

I’ll be looking for something eventually. I’ll have a lot other priorities first. At the same time it’s a must to make brake ducts work.

That looks good too. Wouldn't mind that. Though I do actually like the harshness of the straight lines. I realize I'm in the minority with that.

That orange one on the wall is pretty nice too. Basically a straight 240 copy.

I think some fog lights would help fill in the empty space on the side.

Dear GOD don't put anything like holes or vents underneath the headlights. If anything slightly modify the shape or size of the grill and the elements inside and that's it.

Gotta disagree, its needs small vents or some design feature below those headlights. The pre 2012 GTR’s didnt have anything and when they added the LED’s it looks so much better.
