Nissan Murano Series 3 Aust Model discussion

Need help from Series 3 (Australian model) owners.

I discovered today the front bumper doesn't have the cover for the left (passenger side) small intake hole next to the fog light. I can't recall if this was ever covered our not but I would have thought both should be covered as now it looks odd.

The most definitive photo I found on the net that it's not suppose to be covered is this:
Google Image Result for http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_FoXyvaPSnVk/TD8N0clrYcI/AAAAAAADFGI/BkVsPGDqPCA/s1600/2011-Nissan-Murano-Diesel-5.jpg

Can Series 3 owners confirm if this is the case with their's? Thanks.

Heated side mirrors

One thing I haven't been able to confirm on the MO.

The brochure says it has side heated mirrors; I even had to point it out to the dealer.

Anyone able to confirm if it does indeed have them? I usually notice a heating element running vertically on cars that do have them, but I don't see them on the MO.

Another Aust MY12 Murano owner confirmed that his was also not covered. Maybe it's an Aust model specific.

It's the triangle hole between the fog light and the lower main air intake.

Apparently the facelift bumper was introduced with the introduction of Diesel engine Euro Muranos which required more cooling than existing petrol verions

Bocsta,

Yes, the driver side has a cover. Hopefully you can see my photo attachment. Japanese models also uses the same bumper model. Sorry KodeBlu, I don't like the look of the US bumper
