The black plastic under the front bumper?

Anybody else got rid of that black plastic guard under the front bumper? Its kind of annoying me because I have stock height and I have to angle a bit to avoid scraping since its really low, besides the stock height of the GE is low enough and it makes it even lower. It also might help with the aerodynamics if its out of the way. :3

For aerodynamics I don't think you want air going under the car.(e.g. the reason why nascar and f1's bumpers are so close to the ground.) Don't you want the air to go up and around?

I guess I haven't had any problems with touching the ground yet.

I believe it is there to actually help aerodynamics.... I could be wrong tho.

I haven't really hit it, but I did rub when I'm going up my slightly steep driveway. (Not the bumper, but the plastic black guard thing)

It really isn't a big deal. You should see the underside of my lip from going into my driveway. It is under the car enough to where no one is going to see it you will only hear it scrape on those rare occasions so I would just leave it. Chances are if Honda put it there it serves a purpose because it definitely isn't for looks...

It's called an "air dam". It's there for aerodynamics. Just leave it. It doesn't matter if it gets scraped to hell, just try to avoid scraping the bumper itself.

Think of it as bumper guard warning. If you hear it scrap means you haven't crap your bumper yet. Better that than your bumper.

If somebody wants to replace theirs, here's the site where you can order a new one. Right now I don't need it, but its nice to have a replacement part handy.
