That's exactly what I thought. A friend pointed out today that on my car it is missing. Some time back I fitted spots and sprayed the surrounds and the wire mesh between the two silver. Now, I initially thought that when I did that I must have removed the centre section of the grille and not put it back but I was pretty sure that wasn't the case. So I looked out the photos I took of the car when I bought it new in '03 and sure enough there is no centre grille fitted then either which made me think it was perhaps a Project Drive deletion!! Now I'm thinking it was just missing when I bought the car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
