The whole part between both the headlights, including the white part surrounding the grill should be 1 big peice, so maybe they just sliced the center out of the original and stuck that one in there. if you get a new factory one, it should replace that whole thing...

It would be best to replace the entire grill. If you wanted to save a few dollars, there are auctions on eBay that sell just the inner section of the grill. From the factory the inner section has plastic tabs that are melted to keep the it attached to the outer painted piece, so if you bought just the inner piece, you would have epoxy it in place.
