New Owner :) Does this look right under steering wheel?

Hi all

New Ford Focus 2013 Hatchback Titanium owner here. Thanks for having me as a member :)

Quick question. I was vacuuming the rugs today and the area underneath the steering column caught my eye. I can see where the rug is cut around the steering column and break pedal. Is this normal -- can someone confirm on their vehicle? Not sure if there should be a covering there or not?

Car is less than a week old. I'm calling the dealer as well, but would like to confirm with outside peers :)

I'm not spending a lot of time at floor level but want to make sure everything looks oK. :)
thanks!

Yours looks the same as mine, except you don't have a clutch pedal and a bracket for said pedal that attaches to that lone bolt to the upper left of the steering linkage.

Hence why it looks so empty down there.

Interesting, mind elaborating on what is different?

I see no reason to have a boot on that u-joint, as it's not exposed to the elements.
