IainCameronSome people have written about Porsche warranties etc if grills are installed. I can tell you that at Porsche Centre Aberdeen they extended the warranty of my previous 981 with Zunsport grills attached when they performed the 110 detailed inspection of the car so they don't have a problem with them being installed during inspection. There was no suggestion that they were to be removed. The car was sold in the Porsche Centre with the grills fitted and the new owner also got a 2 years warranty with the car. My personal view is that Porsche AG and some of it's franchisees go for the easy answer rather than get into all sorts of wrangling over claims for engine damage due to overheating. AND why would the cooling systems overheat with these free flow grills installed. As said before, 911 GT2 and GT3 models have factory installed grills. Where is the logic in that?
IainCameron On the topic of radiators I can tell you that in the 718's the outer radiators are only used for the air conditioning system now. There are no engine coolant radiators there. On most 718's now all the engine cooling radiators are installed in the engine bay.

Brian has also mentioned that his PDK GTS has a central coolant radiator (below the number plate), although I'm not sure that it's fitted for all 718 variants. As far as I know, the only 'radiator' in the engine bay is the [air-to-coolant] intercooler. Jeff
