Jeezus! Can't MWAG not rush these new accessories and actually have them test fitted on a variety of S197's for fit and function before throwing them up on the market?

Ummmm...No.

So after looking at the new pics do you guys still think the stock rad cover looks best??? I think it looks kind of awkard how the entire middle of the engine bay is matte black and the outer edges are glossy.

That's a cool video, Bill! I would like to tape my drive from home to work and back... then speed it up and slow it down at certain places so the entire round trip is about 2 minutes.

I still think it looks good matching the grille like the GO did. If you get the radiator cover, then it might look strange surrounding the grille in gloss black. Then you'll want a gloss black grille.

Yes, I think it would look rather silly any other way. I love the way it looks now, Leo
Well, except the blemish (rub mark) and fit issue.

Would look silly with gloss black surrounding the flat black grille. Maybe not in your case, but with the stock grille.

Louvers have been shipped-1Z7A0R330370363574
No ETA as it's still to early in the process. I'd assume sometime this week though since they're coming from TX which isn't to far away.

Not at all... that Grabber Orange pictures looked great like that. And that's what mine is going to look like (not orange... white).

I can't find any better pictures right now, but:

Attachment 21451 Looks good. Flows perfectly with the grille.

Attachment 21452 Too much orange surrounding the grille.

Yes but you fail to realize we have that huge as black shaker/shroud not a plenum cover. I agree the Go looks great witht the Stock rad cover. I just don't think it looks so good on my car. I'll wait and see what you say once you get yours.

I'll have to keep on top of these shrouds (before I take the plunge) to see if they turn into an epidemic like the 'you know what'.

I'm not even looking at the center of the engine... I'm looking at the grille area. The shaker/plenum cover has nothing to do about the radiator cover blending in with the grille versus the orange (or whatever color) surrounding the grille.

Tom, I can ship you mine after I get through playing around with it (maybe in a month or two) for you to borrow. This thing is making me put too many miles on my car!

Or, plunk down $90+ bucks and have it at your doorstep by Thursday!

Well, I need a good camera that can take videos for 30 minutes or so.
