    Default 360 Front Challenge grill

    What's the difference between a standard 360 front end and one with a challenge grill?

    Looks and functionality?

    The challenge grilles are a smaller mesh

    Looks wise the challenge grill wins for me. Wire mesh looks better than plastic. I think the wire mess matches the covers to teh air intakes in the rear wings but I could be wrong. I didn't specify it on mine as I thought it would hardly be noticed but wish I had. I can't believe there is any difference in functionality.

    Am sure the spoiler itself is different too. The cs appears to have a more exagerated bottom lip.

    That's because the whole bumper unit is specific to the CS. I understand that a fcg can be retro fitted to a Modena.

    must be more like 4 or 5Kgs, i did the same as you on my 360 and the std rear panel sat in the loft for a year, then after the car sold it went on ebay, people will buy anything to stick on the wall

    mmm. Thought about ebaying it and my old standard exhaust - what do you reckon theyll fetch?

    Personally I'd keep both items unless you are never going to sell the car! The challenge grille isn't to everyone's taste and the standard exhaust is worth bugger all, ask Manu how many he's got laying around. There was a batch of them on E-bay recently at less than 100 each, so, again I'd suggest keeping it in case the next owner prefers something more subtle than the screaming banshee currently fitted!
