Well the car in the top pic does not have any silver cooling radiators behind the grilles but the white one has 3. I can't tell exactly from the pic of your car whether there are any radiators behind the grilles or not. It would have to do with individual specification.

If u have hot climate version then both grills will be open as additional cooling is required (extra radiator & oil cooler). For normal version at least 1 grill should be open for 535/550 (oil cooler only).
