The "huge gap" is there to let air into your cool air intake-- you will notice that the rest of the front grill is "sealed" off from the area of the intake. This is why the 4-billet (horiz.) aftermarket grills have a larger gap/opening between the hood and the top billet than between the other billets. I don't think it is a design flaw-- even though it is not aesthetically pleasing-- it is a functional necessity.

I like the grill -- but I'd like it better black.

OK I'm usually a fan of everything that goes on your car ....but not really feeling it ,looks like the YF with a big mouth smiling lol

saving judgment for when it's black as it should look a lot better ,
but remember it's your ride and if your happy it's the only thing that matters
I still love your car:beer:
