Default Motion Motorsport E46 M3 Aluminum Underpanel

Anybody pick one up? I nabbed one since I'm missing my OEM under panel. I figured something is better than nothing.

What are your thoughts on it?

It looks good, for the same price as the plastic oem one, why not?

I can see this getting banged up heavily if your car is very low and run into large speed bumps....something that isnt flexible like the oem piece might be a problem for some like myself...

What was the part number you used. When I looked for a new oem one all I found was way more expensive than that.

If this is anything like the one they make for the e36, it's built like a brick sh!thouse and will take a beating before giving up. I've got one for my e36 and it's well made. There's a youtube demo of two guys hanging on to it with the car on the lift - without issue.
