Default Fiddly (?) body/trim questions...

Hi, everybody. Long-term Alfa Spider owner, more recent lapsed Miata owner, now grateful custodian of a 2002 Moro Blue/Amber Baseball 225 TT (35K...miles, not $). What cool cars these are, and I have been seeking this color combination for a while.
Some quick questions:
1. Were the front grills both cross-hatched and only horizontal? Mine is the latter, and I have seen some with cross-hatching.
2. Was the red/silver TT in the rear badge logo customary, or an after-market variation on mine?
3. Was the rear badge Quattro emblem omitted from some? Mine doesn't have it, and I wondered if perhaps that was a car wash mod.

None of this matters a bit, as the timing belt, coolant sensor, and Haldex fluid change (unknown maintenance history in this otherwise impeccable two-owner car) are the first orders of business, but I thought to ask.
Grateful for the forum, and I'll be consulting it frequently, I'm thinking.

Mark

Beautiful car. I'll let other, more knowledgeable owners answer your questions, although my TT badge is red/silver.

Thanks! As a newcomer one is a little shy about asking obvious questions.

But given that my other daily driver is a 78 VW bus (Westy), I'm used to considerable variation depending on parts/mood/availability/assembly, and I wondered about these little car-to-car differences.

So, some TT badges are red/silver.
Anybody weigh in on the missing rear Quattro badge, or on variations in the grill?

MK

No Quattro badge means Front Wheel Drive and 180 HP engine. Or, the badge was removed/fell off/was stolen.

plus the Fat 5s were standard with the 225 quattro. There were 2 different front grills on the Mk 1. Forget what year they made the change
