Does anyone know a aftermarket supplier for the large plastic cover under the engine? The dealers cost is $240 in Canada - and that's way too much for it's purpose.
I'd see if I could find one at a salvage yard, otherwise just keep it off. Its arguable what good it does for your car. Obviously it can help keep dust and dirt and your engine bay clean, and some people say it helps with aerodynamics under the car, which I'm sure it does to some extent, but not enough to warranty paying $240 (even canadian ) for a new one.

I'm at the point where I might buy a 1/8" sheet of aluminum - maybe 24" x 36" and build a 1 of a kind aluminum cover. I think I can do it - with a few machinist contacts ... the materials may cost $100 canadian but it'll last forever and it'll still be alot cheaper than the dealers price of $240 ....
