    THIS looks better?

    I know...taste is very individual...but does a grille that exposes all the ugly ancillaries behind it really look good to this group?
    Your joking, right?

    Yes, I think that what with the thermal sensors visible in the shots and other instrumentation requirements the cosmetic covers were lowest on the priority scale at the time.

    Sounds like your dealer needs a refresher course in customer handling, and maybe even common sense while they're at it.
