If you car is overheating, the vents won't solve the problem. My two cent's worth is that you add them if you like the look, not because you want to really improve cooling. There are plenty of Panteras out there with un-cut hoods that run perfectly cool.
Two more of my cents says that I like the look of the grills, but it is your car so do what you think looks best. Later Euro-GTS cars had the grills, so you aren't really deviating too much from the original design by installing them.
