Z Proto Front Bumper with Cross Beam / Z35 with 240Z inspired grille bar

Do you think the Z needs a bar across the grille?

It does look better but it's way to late to be making any design changes. Perhaps something like this can be done for a limited edition, NISMO, facelift etc.

Why wait that long? I think all the aftermarket companies have heard the outcry of the love it or hate rectangle grille. They probably can't wait to cash in on the "fixes".

Probably a mid-cycle refresh or version update in following year..

@supra93 modified the grill... all I did was delete the front plate ;)

I dig it!
Maybe a new thread should be made with this mock-up and the one debuted at the show to show what people prefer. Personally this edit is so much better. Definitely make sure Dan sees it!

What about something like this?

When I first saw the Proto reveal, I really wasn't a fan of the gaping front but the more I see others trying to "fix" it, the more I realize Nissan made the best front design possible for this car. I haven't seen one redesign that really improves on what we have now.

The silver bar reminds me of the “brace face” grille of the C7 corvette. Not a fan. The orange body colored picture looks pretty good straight-on from the front, but not sure how it would look from other angles. I’m fine with the OEM look (reminds me of the 350z and the 240z without the front bumper). I’m sure the aftermarket will have lots of options assuming the car sells well.

IMO this is one of the worst "fixes" for the grille.
