The SPP is also why there is a silver mesh grill peeking out from under the front bumper. At some point, the POs replaced the kidney grills with those from a SPP 4.4/4.6. They were black on all 3.0s.

It's the same on my '01 3.0 Here's a pic from 17 years ago when we picked it up. Note the absence of dual zone climate. This is an odd duck SPP/Non PP car. The kicker? Ours *does* have DSP. :
