On my C7 I was told that the front license plate aids air flow into the car for engine cooling. Supposedly it was better than the stock insert without a license plate.
Does anyone have information about the front license plate air flow on the C8 regarding which is best, the stock insert or the license plate itself? Thanks

Section 10, page 23 of my 2015 owners manual;
Cooling System (Aero
Panel)
The aero panel enhances
aerodynamic efficiency and
improves fuel economy.
Remove the aero panel and bracket
to improve engine cooling and air
conditioning performance when
driving aggressively or in hot
weather.

The only coolers in the front are the L + R rads and coolers. There is nothing in the middle. The other engine radiators, trans. and diff. coolers are in the rear. I would conclude that nothing done with the front plate area effects any cooling.

Agree with Jim, above. Unlike the C7, which had the radiator behind the license plate, the place where the plate goes is solid plastic, no venting at all, so I don't see any effect on cooling at all.

This might help. C8 with the skin off and radiator in place. There is another radiator under the left headlight. It does not look like the plate would affect cooling or anything else.
