So you have to remove the entire plate to drain the oil?

No, this would go between your current metal plate and the front bumper - replacing the plastic tray.

No this replaces the front plastic belly pan which you donít need to remove to do oil

I like the OE one better. It's designed to break apart and not take anything else with it. Just like the OE rear camber arms.

OE is life.

My plastic under tray was missing from when I bought my car so I've been in the market for one of these. Although it looks good.. $300 is a stretch for an item like this... typical Turner markup I guess. There's another company who made this item years ago for almost half the price.

Yeah.. I'll skip that one. Imagine in a crash it arches up and puncture stuff like an oil pan..

If you crash that hard you would honestly be worried about the oil pan?

I have the motion motorsports one and its pretty nice and simple conpared to the turner part.
