Now that I'm looking for it, it's ridiculous how many of those big front grills are actually blocked off on the inside right from the factory.
On an MX5 about half the grill is fake.
At least they have the sense not to leave them wide open.

What I don't get is why most of the upgrades made to eco models can't be standard across the range, as I see it factory eco mods are a bit like safety features, if you have them developed for a model of car, they should be standard, not optional.
