It's part of the bumper. And masked off so the black is actually part of the Urethane.

you guys are not getting the point(as mentioned by others) its part of the mold of the whole(stock) bumper. it cannot be removed(unless you cut it out). the bumpers you see with mesh grills are prolly aftermarket bumpers

My car didn't come with one when I bought it brand new in 2002. It's Carbon Blue, and I've only seem them on the lighter shades: silver, white, red, etc.

1.you could cut them out thumbsup maybe a really sharp blade

2.then pick a grill of your choice from Home Depot and stick it on.

3.You could probably just glue it on... I'd suggest useing JB Weld I dunno idunnoI just love the stuff its strong and can withstand high heat not that the heat part matters =P..
