Again, i have no idea if there is a cause and effect but my car is definitely running cooler the last 2 days. I will have to see if it holds up. Next I am planning on removing the finishing rods to see if that helps as well. Anyone know how to remove them short of taking off the bumper cover or just breaking them off?

Just for grins can the sedan folks list whether or not they have a front plate frame on?
Not a sedan, but FWIW I noticed no diff in temps with no plate, and with a plate that partially blocked my FMIC. I also tried driving around with no front mesh, and noticed no difference in temps.
