11-12 GT/CS valance with which grille?

I recently bought some Boss 302 LS wheels and now I'm thinking about adding a GT/CS front valance with fogs. I can't decide if I should get a Saleen style grille or just put in some fog light deletes in the stock grille. Thoughts?

Here's my car. Factory GT grille with with fog light block offs, 302S wheels and CS/Boss 302 valance.

Picture quality isn't great but you should get the idea.

and now for something completely different . . . .

I am also planning to go with the Boss/CS lower valance, for the purpose of adding brake cooling ducts. The brake cooling ducts use the fog light holes.

So, if that is what you want to do also, you need to keep the original grille with the original fogs.

If you want to use the lower fogs, then I'd go with the Saleen or Roush fogless grille.

That's the exact reason I left my original GT grill when I installed the Boss/CS valance, and I think the combo looks great. I don't get why everyone is wanting to delete the fog lamps.

I don't use them and think it looks better without them.

If you add fogs to the valance then the ones in the grille are useless.
