You only have to remove the underside piece that starts at 55 seconds in that vid, and then at 1:35 you see how to remove the stock grille. You'll be doing all this from underneath the car while the bumper is still attached.

The screens attach to the grilles with screws that have a large head. My guess is they did it that way so they can be replaced if needed, or if for some reason someone chooses not to use the screens.

*I just installed one and here's my perspective.
I ordered the Cervinis version that is almost identical to the CDC. I preferred the Cervinis because it looks a lot beefier, more thick and substantial and also comes with the mesh screens to mount behind.
I used the previous posters pics and advice to do the install and it made it a lot easier. I chose to remove the front bumper cover while the front end was up on ramps and that was way easier than I expected. There's a few YouTube videos that help that process.
The grill looks fantastic and gives it a slight GT500 look. You do lose your fogs, if you're doing it on a GT but they were pretty useless anyway. I can now sell those and the GT grill and a V6 owner might like those.
I'll post a pic in a few hours when the sun is out more. I would recommend this grill, especially at $189, it changes the whole front look.
My advice is use the previous posts and pics to help you, take your time, mount it right and if you've ever wondered about removing the whole front bumper..it's really no biggie, even with no helper. Make sure to disconnect the front Amber running lights and ambient air sensor Before trying to completely pull the bumper forward and off. Then it's super easy.
(My wife uses the word "super" a lot and it has rubbed off on me, it doesn't make me less of a man.)

About To Pull Trigger On CDC Grill

Is there a 10-12 V6 version of these grilles? The open nose looks damn aggressive.

After going though the cdc then the cervinis version, DO NOT BUY THE CDC. Here is my reasoning
Unless you are handy with putting a good screen on the back (unless you never take it out of the stable too much the radiator will eventually take a beating), have the ability to make it alter a different lower grill to match, and are okay with cutting out the part that holds the fog lights in, don't do it. The cervinis design keeps the option for fog lights, is way more sturdier than the flimsy cdc, and comes with a pre cut protective screen. Plus you can get a matching lower grille too. Now the only downside is you have to take the bumper off for instill but it's well worth it, you look a lot cleaner than with the cdc. Honestly the CDC is a huge disappointment that needs some serious improving.

What sort of problems did you have with your CDC? Mine has held up for almost a year now so far without any issues (although I do take a brush and clean out the bugs every now and then). Granted, had the Cervini grille been available sooner, I probably would have gone with both matching upper and lower, but I haven't had an real problem with my CDC, and I thought the build quality was good. I know they are not the same, but isn't the grille on the GT500 about as open as the CDC?
