the downside would be engine heat possably heating the firewall making it hotter inside the car??
and you might hear more engine and road noise..

GLi's missed out on it, everything else had it .. mostly road noise .. heat transfer is minimal!

My gli had it. Not sure if it was optional or not but its always had it.
