yeah i have noticed on alot of new cars they make it look like it still has a grill when infact its blocked off just a couple inches behind.

Definalty something to consider as on my car there are 4 open areas and 3 of them are quiet deap so alot of air would go into the space but be pushed back out due to the block.
