Hi,
I just bought a new lower grill (bottom of picture) and from my research I provided the correct part number. HOWEVER it arrived and it looks different but still fits. Really the only difference is the new one appears it MAY provide less ventilation. Should this be a worry or is it fine?

The top one is for the passenger side and is vented for airflow to the inter cooler on 1.8 and 1.9 motors.

The bottom one is for the driver side. No inter cooler = no vents.

The drivers side is always more blocked than passenger side. The intercooler is on the passenger side, therefore it needs to be open to allow for air flow. drivers side, there is nothing, so no airflow is needed. youre good.

Yeah bought a new lower grille for mine and could not find vented at all. My intake is ran down there so i was hoping to get a vented grille, but they don't seem to make them.
