It would be nice if an aftermarket company would make a nice shroud to fill in the gaps around it. I like it without the mesh, but the gaps make it look a bit unfinished, imo.

I like the aggressive look though.

So, aftermarket companies, melt some plastic or shape up some carbon and hook us up!

The ER FMIC has shrouding available, though I don't think it covers the gaps fully like you're talking about. I agree, that would look sweet.

I was just gonna say ER has a shroud option.

To the open grill promoters:
I know it looks cool but you will damage your FMIC a lot faster and start bending fins. My biggest pet peeve is bent fins. LOL

It started off with the cx racing n55 kit and i up sized to the 4"core. But all said and done really just the brackets and core are cx.

I used to drive 30 miles to work, the first 25 were back roads and they were OK. Everytime I got on the highway for the last 5 miles is when all the road debris became a problem on the front end. (depends on your road systems of course).

Roads around here are horrible.
