Bought these grille and rear wheel aerodynamic covers back in January 2018 from ptjones, before I even bought my car since I was still in the market for one. Then the car arrived from the freight shipper from outta state and with an unexpected majorly cracked sunroof and that took some time to get sorted out and replaced. I then wanted to drive the car a full tank before before adding the mods and I wasn't doing much driving at the time and I let my dad use the car more than I did since he's in the market for another car and he only has our work truck to drive around currently and the mpg isn't great at all (especially compared to a hybrid lol).
So I plasti dipped the covers satin black (as I didn't want to see the velcro and/or 3m tape, plus I like the red/black contrast) and installed them at the end of last week finally before my
So here I am on only my 2nd tank of gas when I installed these and have driven the car ~350 miles with them on.
I had to remove the lower grille less than 50 miles after installing it, as the car warned me the engine was getting too warm... it was ~65* F outside in the evening and I was driving on the freeway during a 90 mile trip when it happened. So I pulled over and off it went and temperatures dropped back to normal operating temperature right away.
I reckon I won't need the lower grille block off much at all here being inland in southern California with the heat we get here, maybe only for a month or 2 in the winter when we get some cold fronts.
