I'm new to this forum. I just purchased a 1998 F355 Spider that has the competition grill in the back. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep the grill or replace it with a solid painted piece. Can anyone provide me feedback on the pros or cons of the competition grill? Thanks.
The grill is an option item. The previous owner must have paid good money for it. It is good, trust me. I ordered the "challenge grill" for my F355 and I found that the engine bay was much cooler especially for long runs. People pay to get that grill and you have it on the car. Keep it. It's better than the "solid" panel.
The only real advantage you have is that it cools the engine. Because looks are personal I can't help you with that, but if you are in a hot area, or you are pushing the car for a long time, I think it is better to have one.
