For those who have the grilletech center grill, does the grill move around or messes up its position after you drive at high speeds such as 70+? I have the grilletech center grill and I think I installed it right with the zip ties and all, but after driving on the freeway, the grill pops in instead of staying straight like the way i had it b4.


btw: how many zip ties did you all use?

Mine never moves around. I mean... it cannot move. It is STUCK in there.

I used only two zip ties at left/right side.

Mine never moves around too. I used 3 ties. 2 on each side towards the middle and one in the center towards the top.

Mine doesn't move at all cuz of the tight fit... but i did i have to mold it to fit the curves of the mouth to make it actually fit tightly... did u mold it too??... and i used 2 zip ties... on the left and right.

when you guys say tight fit, you pushed the grill all the way in or what? cuz my grill doesnt go all the way in cuz it's so hard to push it in...

Mine needed to be curved to conform to the bumper. It was straight when it arrived. Mine doesnt go all the way back, its pressed against the black lip on the bottom of the bumper. The top rest against the stock grill.

The side grills are screwed on. I used 2 for each of the sides.

Yeah, it took about 2 weeks to get mine. I recommend you ship it with faster service such as 3 day instead of ground. The reason why is when I received the box, it was tore up!! The grill wasnt damaged or bent but the box was messed up completely. Not Grilletechs fault, but just some advice if you live accross the US from Grilletech.

I think grille-craft has a better grille if you dont wanna mount it with zip ties, but its very expensive though. And also i believe they have an upper grille kit on the way.

I don't like the zip ties either but decided to install the grill anyway because it makes the front look better imo. I got the black race grill.

I didn't find any grills for the 7th G coupe on the Grillcraft website. I would be willing to pay the extra $$ without zip ties. Any one know where we can get one?

was it difficult for you all to get the grill to fit as best as possible? did you have to bend it or anything?
