missing interior hatch access cover

I've had my '12 Ti HB for just over a month. I was poking around the cargo area and noticed my right access cover to replace the bulb is missing. I was looking around thinking it fell out and noticed there is a hole above that in the area just below the rear side windows on both sides. You can stick your hand in there and touch the inside of the body. The area appears like it should have a cover but wanted to know if any '12 owners can check their cars and let me know what they have. I plan on calling my dealer to get the other access cover and need to know if I should request other parts as well.

The open access holes under the trim panels are intentional.

^ Yup. Intentional. Easy access.

You have to either be locked inside the hatch or crane your neck way under the package tray trim to see it. There are other, more visible areas of the car that look much worse--the exhaust for example.

I'll bet there are some unfinished areas at the top of the trunk on the sedan that look just as bad. That is, in the areas you don't normally see.

You are correct. The top of the trunk in my sedan is horribly ugly. But again, you have to stick your head in the trunk.

It's really not that horrible. You are seeing it from a bottom angle looking upwards with a the flash from the camera looking right at it. It almost faces down to be honest, and until this picture I didn't know it was like that either lol, but seriously, no big deal.

Wait are you saying that you are going to get a cover for these small unnoticeable areas unless you are a neck contortionist?

No. I'm going to ask for the small 3x5ish access cover to the rear bulb portal. The one on the right of my car is missing. I'll post pics this weekend. Car is having a full wrap installed this week.
