On the left hand drive japanese model, this was added to serve as a vent and aid in cooling the cabin. If I remember correctly, the car is turbocharged and the ac is removed. I think it si the a-spec kit over in japan, that they sell here. They did not see the advantage of creating a new mold for the US. So US drivers will be a bit warmer than Japanese/Euro drivers.
