2016 AMG GT S engine compartment covers

Hi guys recently purchased an GT S and saw that in the engine compartment near the windshield passenger side is the battery compartment and on the drivers side fluid reservoir compartment.
Both being open but with a rubber gasket that seals it off when hood is closed.
I also noticed that others I've seen have a black plastic cover on them same models.
Can anyone explain reasonably why some have it and others don't its not the GT R or European models I don't believe. Maybe different production dates?
Attached are photos of one with and one with out covers.
Please help, Thanks so much!

Perhaps the covers are reserved for the R and the C models......

AMG GT S
Sneezix & Katie22 Well HI! Thanks so much for your responses. Glad to meet fellow GT owners as well as cool car people.
That's what this board is about sharing and chatting with common interests. Thanks you guys! HUG

Sneezix I'm finding that 17' or 18' didnt necessarily have or not have them also, so year might not matter on if they were OEM.
I've seen all models and years showing some on or off so...
Thanks for your response, luv your AMG GTS!

Katie22 Hay Sister GT, thanks for your info too, I actually thought maybe they only put the covers on "Roadsters".
A friend has one and he said his had none... Lu ya roadster! it definitely looks good on you!...

Thebishman , It is likely they only provided them on mostly AMG GT "R" and Roadsters, the majority of them do, have only seen a couple that didn't.
But I did read a few articles on the GTR's which had photos of them without so its possible they had them off to show components or they used an incorrect photo, lol

Ah another gal in a GT. I saw a girl in a dark red one not long ago. It was on the Space Coast of Florida where we live.

The covers are actually part of a Package with Carbon Fiber inclusive, more likely for the GT R, mine has enough Carbon Fiber on it,
it's in the drive shaft that's most important.. not going to pop the hood to show carbon F on the engine plaque.
;( it's in hibernation till April probably May, till it gets warm enough to run the Pilot Super Sport tires above 35-40 degrees.
besides the salt and sodium chloride ruins a car around here so you go girl and enjoy that warm weather! lol

Ha ha I grew up in Michigan I know what happens to a car with salt. Also last January we flew up to Detroit to do the auto show. To our surprise our rental was a 16 Camaro SS. The car was the worse riding car I ever been in and I traded it in halfway through our time for a Camry which was nice. I got home and asked in the Corvette forum what was wrong with that car. They told me they never should have rented the car since it has summer tires. Surprise the license plate was from Florida.

Note the FLorida plate. Summer tires in snow are terrible.......

Mine is Black, I'm on the East Coast, which is such a shame... ;( it's in hibernation till April probably May, till it gets warm enough to run the Pilot Super Sport tires above 35-40 degrees.
